Well! i must say you are genius Mr. President everybody is focusing on just high
school. Parents surely will be happy and proud to have a President like you.
Thank You for a great plan.Diana
Norman--But how do you pay for it?We are already borrowing huge
amounts of moneyto pay the interest on our national debt.How do you pay for a new program? Tax the rich some more? But we
haven't finished taxing the rich to pay for the debt we have already
accrued. We haven't finished taxing the rich to pay down our debt. And we
haven't finished taxing the rich to give to the poor.I would
love to take my family to Hawaii. It would do us good to have that time
together. We would learn more about the world we live in. We would take lots
of pictures to have fond memories. We would enjoy healthier air than what we
are breathing in Utah.But we don't have the money to go to
Hawaii. So we don't go.Our government doesn't have the
money to pay for a new program. So we don't go there. Its
really that simple.Let Obama propose where the money will come from
for this new program, but before he does that, let him show us how he is
reducing our current debt.
Hey, let's keep on adding new programs just because we think of them.
One way to fund this program or reduce the yearly deficits is to adjust the
income tax rates back to historical averages.
Obama seems like he just sits down with his Wall Street Banker buddies, who make
a percentage by floating the bonds on all Federal debt, and brainstorms on how
they can get more spending approved. It's a big scam.A monetary system that is based on credit will have consequences.
The Head Start program has been proven to have no lasting benefit for the kids
who participated.So, why do we want to spend billions we don't
have to do something that is ineffective? Maybe to provide free baby sitting to
low information voters? Or, to more aggressively indoctrinate impressionable
youth on the glories of Dear Leader and the need to vote Democrat? To ensure
that all pre-school workers are unionized and thus loyal members of that
reliable Democrat voting block?Would this program terminate or
replace even a single existing federal program, or just plop another load of
bureaucracy on top of the massive number of existing failed federal programs?No. Barry, this is NOT a good idea. It is just as bad as the rest of
Don't we already have the "Head Start" program? Hasn't that reduced poverty, and increased learning? Has
government become our children's daddy?
David - It pays for itself over time both in terms of tax dollars saved an in
terms of higher quality of life for individuals. If you owned a business, would
you not invest in machinery or training that would decrease your costs by more
than the cost of investment. It seems to me that this is one investment that
decreases government size and deficit over time. While that still leaves the
big issue of entitlements on the table as it has been over the past several
presidents of both parties, it is a positive step.
What the article fails to point out that by the 3rd grade any difference is
gone. If we had a surplus and no debt and all the retirement programs were
fully funded with real money and not treasury bonds that a our children will
have to redeem, then I'd say let's try it.When your in
debt it doesn't make sense to add on more debt.
Funny how the HEADLINE is HOW WILL THE NATION PAY FOR IT, and then it goes on to
prove it's a GREAT and SOUND policy, that pays huge dividends yearly and is
paid for by already-in-place entities.... Is the headline a CON-JOB
to get conservatives to read it? Liberals and progressives, and most
conesravitves already KNOW the benefits of a GOOD and early education.
Isn't kindergarten preschool? Rather than adding more years, let's
focus on improving the QUALITY of the educational years we already have.
Why would any politician propose adding additional programs to an already
bloated government? Why would anyone vote or propose for additional spending
when we are already adding an average of $1 Trillion to the national debt every
year? And that amount will sky-rocket in coming years due to unfunded
entitlement liabilities.Obama is not serious about leading our
country and solving the big problems.
