Last week, it was the fourth grade at Alexander B. Goode Elementary School in York, Pa., that found itself on the receiving end of the Vice President’s wisdom:
Here in this school, your school, you’ve had a lot of teachers who used to work here, but because there’s no money for them in the city, they’re not working. And so what happens is, when that occurs, each of the teachers that stays have more kids to teach. And they don’t get to spend as much time with you as they did when your classes were smaller. We think the Federal Government in Washington, D.C., should say to the cities and states, look, we’re going to give you some money so that you can hire back all those people. And the way we’re going to do it, we’re going to ask people who have a lot of money to pay just a little bit more in taxes.
Joe Biden, in the fourth grade? Sigh. That social promotion stuff won’t turn out well. Don’t promote him until he learns the material or he’ll never amount to anything.
Hey Joe, why should “the rich” pay any more in taxes than the rest of us? It doesn’t matter what they would do with it. You might not like the idea of Caribbean vacations but, those vacations result in jobs; jobs for the ticket sellers, jobs at the airplane factories and the airlines. Those profitable routes on the airlines might enable them to make enough money to service some smaller towns where the revenue isn’t as high (or allow less expensive tickets).
When will you people realize it isn’t your money? Rich people (or any taxpayers for that matter) are not indentured servants to the government. Rich people aren’t the peasants, expected to labor all year for the scraps that Washington is willing to throw to them. The folks that are supposed to be public servants are the ones working for us!
The bill doesn’t include its own financing. Does the bill make a product that is being sold for a profit? What is the return on investment for the money “invested”? All this bill promises are more taxes and more spending.
Why is it that in education, as in healthcare, the favorite position is to spend more money rather than trying to become efficient and do more by spending less money?
If education and healthcare were run as real, independent businesses, without government sugar daddies and without being regulated and unionized into submission, costs would be a fraction of what they are.
On the whole, the Vice President of the United States told fourth graders that if kids and schools need more money, they must to take that money from rich people. Biden obviously does not care that children are easily programmed by adult instruction, Biden only cares about passing Obama’s Job’s Bill, and if that means coaching children into telling their parents to demand the Congress and Senate pass the bill, Biden will use innocent children to get the job done.
One can only imagine the public outrage that would have ensued had Dick Cheney told a classroom of fourth graders that every American must support President Bush’s tax-cuts.
Indoctrinating children versus morality is seemingly less important than convincing underprivileged children that they will never achieve anything in life, and fired teachers will never be rehired, unless the rich are taxed to excess. Biden’s words infer it is the fault of the wealthy that teachers in certain schools have been fired, not the Federal Government and a unionized educational system that is failing America’s children in favor of paychecks and pensions.
Again, Biden’s leftist message is Marxist indoctrination at its worse.
