It Depends Who Is Buttering Your Bread As To What Your Opinions Are! Hypocrites!

Elizabeth Warren's Latest Hypocrisy

Elizabeth Warren, or as the president refers to her, Pocahantas, is at it again. 

The would be sheriff of Wall Street who got rich flipping houses before 2008, 
the advocate for affirmative action who falsified a Native American heritage to 
get ahead in academia is now changing her mind on the school vouchers that 
minority parents in underserved districts desperately need. As the Post reports:
DeVos has spent her life advocating for children and for parental choice in

education to ensure opportunity for all, regardless of race, class, gender or

ZIP code.

Such dedication is irrelevant to defenders of our nation’s dysfunctional public-

school systems. Yet at least one Senate Democrat wasn’t always a defender

of dysfunction.

Yes: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, progressive icon, once supported school vouchers.

In her 2003 book, “The Two-Income Trap” (co-authored with her daughter,

Amelia Warren Tyagi), Warren endorsed a school-voucher system to free

children from the tyranny of educrats assigning them to schools based on

where their parents can afford to live.

Warren wrote: “With fully funded vouchers, parents of all income levels

could send their children — and the accompanying financial support — to

the schools of their choice.”

Moreover, she argued that framing the issue as a “public versus private

competition” misses the key issue: “The problem is not vouchers; the

problem is parental choice.”

Warren pointed out that most public-school placement is based on ZIP code.

The only way parents can exercise any choice is to buy a home in the school

district they want — but poor families lack that option.

The solution, she asserted, is to break up the “ironclad relationship” between

ZIP code and school with a well-designed voucher system.
So Warren is perfectly ok with government bailouts for kids who go to college, 
pick irrelevant majors, and end up working in a Starbucks with six figure debt. 
What she's apparently not ok with, it seems, is letting poor minority children
 escape from failing schools that don't give them the skills necessary to 
compete in a competitive global economy. 

What changed? Warren became a Democratic Senator. The entire Democratic 
agenda absolutely requires the existence of a permanent underclass that's 
unable to care for themselves without government assistance, and winning
 campaigns requires generous donations from the teacher's unions whose
 golden ticket is threatened by school choice.
