The Washington Examiner
I have three posts up already at the Washington Examiner’s Opinion Zone Blog.
First, I tackle the New Jersey teachers’ unions and their resistance to any and all reforms in public education in that state. I should note that I’m on the fence on a lot of these public education questions. While the unions (at least in places like Jersey) have way too much power, I can certainly understand their trepidation at many of the proposed reforms. That being said, I think opposing merit pay and coming up with an alternative collective pay for all teachers sort of misses the point.
Next, I urge conservatives to rethink taxes and the myth of supply-side economics. We need to raise taxes and cut spending to get our fiscal situation under control! That’s what the first Bush did, and it worked!
And today I argued that we should cut defense spending, and that Alan Grayson’s new “The War is Making You Poor” bill is a good idea.
Thanks for reading!
