    Sorry, government works for business, not for the poor. America can only get ahead by keeping taxes low on the rich, and if that means kicking young people out of school, and kicking the homeless out of temporary housing, so be it. It’s the price we pay for greatness.

    No, they won’t undo the cuts like the "Con"gress did for the FAA because cutting Head Start doesn’t affect THEM PERSONALLY!!
    HEAVEN FORBID a member of the Senate or the House should have to wait at the airport for a delayed flight…

    Cancer treatments: cut. Headstart: cut. Most government agencies cut (average 17% btw, not 5% because of the way it was implemented) BUT let folks slow down their air travel, as FAA warned back at the FIRST OF FEBRUARY, and Congressional Republicans today said they never heard anything about air traffic slowdowns because of staff reductions. Dems voted for this idiotic “fund frequent flyers” bill too, but the simple fact is the REPUBLICAN SPONSORED “sequestration bill” is idiotic, because BOEHNER refused to come forth with a rational budget that called for tax increases, reductions in “Defense”, and cutting waste from spending on CONTRACTING TO HIS BUDDIES, or of course reducing farm subsidies.

    @Ms. Ima

    Sure Pres. Obama did it all by his lonesome. No Democrats or Republicans had anything to do with it. Open your eyes.

    From Wiki:

    “The Head Start Program is a program of the United States Department of Health and Human Services that provides comprehensive education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families. The program’s services and resources are designed to foster stable family relationships, enhance children’s physical and emotional well-being, and establish an environment to develop strong cognitive skills.”

    You know when it started back in the 60’s, this program was a summer school thing to help prepare kids for kindergarten.

    Yeah. When a child enters school, the most important things that child needs to know is how to read and count. Shouldn’t the parents – no matter the income level – have already been involved in teaching their young ones these skills?

    I worked long hours in every job I had. I worked as many as 3 jobs at a time to make ends meet. And yet, I still had time to spend with my children to read to them, to prepare them for the rigors of the educational environment.

    They could all read by age 3. The library was one of our “fun places” and choosing books a family outing. Counting money (allowance not big but there). planning a budget, working for “extras” from an early age honed their negotiating skills as well.

    Why would you turn this sacred trust over to the government?

    “Head Start” DOES work in most areas, advancing FAMILIES, not just the kids, socially, educationally, and economically, which is exactly whey current “Republicans” hate it so much. Eliminating the “class divide”, and closing the huge gap in income inequality is NOT on their agenda.

    ^i take it you are either uniformed about government funding of the catholic church in violation of the first amendment to the constitution or you just think you’re being funny. It is important to note that this taxpayer money is given to the church WITHOUT LEGISLATION – it is done by executive order, never voted on by the house, approved by the senate; Only signed by the president: to wit:

    Bush started it:

    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/jesus/president/faithbased.html

    now you’ll notice the catholic bishops writing this article state quite clearly that the faith being funded can’t be chosen by the government, yet the catholic church is a disproportionate recipient of these taxpayer dollars and moslems, get nothing.

    Someone should tell Wasserman that HHS issued a report in January (yes, that would be under the current regime) that Head Start is a waste of money.
