    Ah but Faux news and the tea party do not want anyone to see that it can work if done right .

    Not a bunch of grandstanding to try and shift scrutiny from their blockading everything that is not to there demands.

    If the law had been implemented as written and not piecemeal after lawsuits you would not have the high cost …

    But the tea party could not stand there and let a law reduce the inflated profits of big insurance .

    Ah the cutters of budget are out in force .

    Hard to upgrade systems when each year the budget is to small to maintain what is already there .Same reason highways are crumbling and bridges fall cut that fat out so we can give Mega Corp a 20 year tax free incentive to automate everything .

    And Give the CEO 1000 times the pay he currently has .

    Every law that was ever written opened up a new way to graft.

    Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

    Uhhhmmmm have taught was married to 2 different teachers . Know the supposed super qualified types that claim to prefer teaching over money .
    But have found the old maxim to be so very true .

    Those that can not do teach the ones that can neither teach nor do examine those that can do none of the above regulate and legislate .

    The last 50 years have been liberal arts types at the administrative levels testing out the new ways some crack head physiologist dreams up sociological theories thayt never work.

    Humans are individuals trying to force everyone to fit the conservative christian square box will never work . nor will the liberal one society model .

    lol The test are dreamed up by politicians following the dictates of bible thumppers that scream and cry much louder that the rest and wau out of proportion to their actual numbers .

    Education is like government way to top heavy more administrators then teachers .

    The days of agrarian society are over its time to update the system to a year around and multi shift setup more in line with real life .

    The days of a teacher working 9 months of the year need to end my ex used to cry about low pay during summer break not getting paid but that was her choice to get more per month during school year . Then the times she chose to teach summer classes there was xtra pay .

    Cried because with the ink not dry on a associates degree in flower arrangements she only started out making 38 k in 1980 .

    Agree way to much money goes to the creation of a elitist cliche that leads to bulling .
    With music and art the money goes to many more kids than in football.

    played it and see little benefits in R/L other than multiple injuries that never had time to heal due to coach yelling ur not hurt boy quit ur crying like a girl an get back out there.
