I’ll admit it. During my time in the Florida Legislature I was generally supportive of school vouchers. I bought into the argument that vouchers were similar in effect to the GI bill and the Florida Resident Access Grants, better known as FRAG.

So, about that addition to the national debt linked to the war in Iraq (the animating trigger for the Arab Spring that may yet extend to Syria and the mischief-making Persians in Iran, but never mind—Bush lied, blah-blah-blah).
Anyway, enough already about how much it cost in terms of borrowed dollars (if not in the lives and limbs of precious American heroes, of course). It seems the Obama stimulus (at several hundred-thousand dollars per job saved/created) tops out at substantially more than nine years of our adventure in the Cradle of Civilization. h/t Nancy Jean Burkholder, Minneapolis, via Power Line.
