"There's a curious line in the summary of President Barack Obama's proposed fiscal 2012 Department of Education budget. 'Now more than ever,' it reads, 'we cannot waste taxpayer dollars on programs that do not work.' It's curious because no federal education programs appear to work, yet the Obama administration is proposing to increase Education Department spending from $64 billion to $77 billion. It's a bankrupting contradiction, but don't get angry at Obama: We only have ourselves to blame." (02/15/11)
