Interesting quote today from Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger in the N&O story about Superior Court Judge Howard Manning’s ruling in the dispute over the state’s program for at-risk four-year-olds, formerly known as More at Four.
Senate leader Phil Berger, an Eden Republican, called the judge’s order “judicial activism of the worst kind” and said Manning was “determined to create a massive new welfare program from the bench.”
Republicans used to claim to support More at Four. Now they disparage it as a massive welfare program. But Berger is right. Those struggling four year olds need to get a life and start pulling themselves up by their bootstraps.
