First he taxes poor minority parents out the wazoo. Now he's taking away their kids' hopes for the future. Is this the type of "change" we're supposed to believe in?
n the photograph, taken by their low-income African-American mother Deborah, are low-income African-American students "Sarah and James Parker [who] attend Sidwell Friends School with the president's [sic] daughters, thanks to a voucher program [that Former Senator Ødouble-standard's rubberstamping Democreep Qongress member] Dick Durbin wants to end."
Like the Obama girls, Sarah and James attend the Sidwell Friends School in our nation's capital. Unlike the Øbama girls, they could not afford the school without the $7,500 voucher they receive from the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship program. Unfortunately, a spending bill the Senate takes up this week includes a poison pill that would kill this program — and with it perhaps the Parker children's hopes for a Sidwell diploma.
Known as the "Durbin language" after [Øfascist's fellow] Illinois Democrat who came up with it last year, the provision mandates that the scholarship program ends after the next school year unless Congress reauthorizes it and the District of Columbia approves. The beauty of this language is that it allows [Democrook] opponents to kill the program simply by doing nothing [as usual]. Just the sort of [Democretinist] sneaky maneuver [as usual] that's so handy when you don't want inner-city moms and dads to catch on that you are cutting one of their lifelines....
This [Øtyrant] double standard is largely unchallenged by either the teachers' unions or the press corps. For the teachers' unions, it's a fairly cold-blooded calculation [like Teachers' Unions = Cold Blooded]. They're willing to look the other way at lawmakers [and Former Senator Øborn-in-Kenya] who chose private or parochial schools for their own kids — so long as these lawmakers vote in ways that keep the union grip on the public schools intact and an escape hatch like vouchers bolted.
