Thank you for getting us elected now here is a ton of money.

In 2008 all levels of government spent about 837.7 billion dollars on the education of our K-12 students in the U.S. We spent 108 billion dollars more on education than we did on defense (mind you we are fighting two war fronts).

The Democrats have decided to thank the teachers unions for getting them elected by adding 87 billion dollars for education to the stimulus package. What will happen down the line when the feds are not contributing this extra 87 billion dollars toward education? Will our local and state governments ask us to pick up this portion of the tab or will those who have been hired because of this stimulus money be let go when the money is longer available. I can here the cries now "It's for the kids! You must pay more taxes."

The following piece appeared on One News Dems thank teachers unions with 'stimulus' money. Click here to read the story.

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for our readers.
