We need honesty in leadership and governance and Jan Brewer is incapable of any!
Let me explain why:
Governor Brewer is a Democrat in disguise. Jan Brewer maintains the Napolitano legacy. She has become merely an extension of the Janet Napolitano Administration.
Allow to speak from my area of expertise.
Since the advent of “The Great Society” more than 40 years ago, the research over the decades demonstrated clearly programs like “Head Start” do not work. The benefits of “Head Start” are completely gone by fourth grade and children drop out of high school at the same rate as when there is no “Head Start.” “Head Start” does not change outcomes. The high school drop out rate remains unchanged!
Indeed, programs like “Head Start” cost us, in terms of money and in terms of poorer outcomes for children. Likewise, full day Kindergarten is totally ineffective. True, it is state funded childcare but studies have long shown that there is no net benefit from Kindergarten.
Moreover, children who attend Kindergarten do not do as well as those who stay at home with mom. Studies show children who remain in the home with their mothers do better intellectually and experience better life outcomes than those who attend Kindergarten.
So, rather than face facts demonstrated across time in repeated studies, Jan Brewer has decried to continue the Napolitano legacy and folly.
So, Brewer decided that Arizona will take the dope, the drugs, will take the one-time “Bail Out” written specifically for Arizona by Secretary of Homeland Security Napolitano and place more burdens in perpetuity upon the backs of Arizonans!
Federal “Bail Out” money, federal “Stimulus Money” is neither. They are neither ‘bail out’ nor ’stimulus’ but are added burden to a destroyed economy. They are nothing more than dope. It is STUPID.
It only has a narcotic effect:
We’ll get them hooked for free, then we’ll tax them to death for it.
