    Compromise between Republicans. This was a set-up from the beginning. Not being able to pass the Edu. ALEC reform plan alone, Berger slipped it into the budget. Hubris beyond belief on Berger’s part.

    The GOP’s plan is to create a permanent uneducated, under class of people they can exploit. Next goal is to repeal minimum wage laws so they can pay them $3.50 an hour.

    Come on David, admit it, you posted your comment during a moment of optimism. You know as well as anyone the hourly pay of $3.50 is way too high.
