A commenter on the YouTube video embedded below calls this "conservative porn."
I call it, "not good enough."
Here, we have a teacher floating a pretty good idea -- per-pupil compensation -- which would probably be an option somewhere in a fully private educational system.
Does Governor Christie say something like that? No. He pleads that New Jersey "can't print money" and that brings down the house because people are starved for someone who will take a stand -- any stand -- with fire in his belly. This is where a good sense of life can get people unarmed with the right ideas about the proper scope of government into trouble. Continuing on with a socialistic educational system where -- he admits! -- the pay scale is awful is a poor way to serve schoolchildren.
Oh. I nearly forgot. The purpose of this meeting wasn't to propose getting the government off anyone's back. It was to cap the rate of increase in New Jersey's property taxes! So much for this guy being an "anti-Obama"...
Today: Corrected a typo.
