Democrats are supposed to be liberals, progressives.
So why are so many Pennsylvania Democrats sponsoring an expansion of the state’s de facto school voucher bill?
The Commonwealth already diverts $200 million of business taxes to private and parochial schools. That’s money that should be going to support our struggling public school system.
The new bill would add $50 million to each program for a total of $100 million more flushed down the drain.
Pennsylvania has a budget deficit. We’ve cut almost $1 billion a year from public schools. We can’t afford to burn an additional $300 million on private and church schools.
