...If those facts are not enough to encourage the Democrats to rally around vouchers and flexible spending, there are still more. A 1999 study by the liberal Joint Center for Political Studies shows that 60 percent of black Americans support vouchers, and a majority of the general population, 53 percent, does as well. In New York City alone, according to a survey last year by Hunter College, a whopping 87 percent of Hispanics, 86 percent of Asians and 83 percent of blacks support vouchers to allow children to attend private schools.

...Consider, as well, the price tags on public vs. private. Per-pupil expenditures for public schools were more than double the average tuition for private schools, according to a 1996 study by the Cato Institute $3,116 vs. $6,857. All of which is a cruel hoax on every red-blooded American taxpayer. Worse, it is an unconscionable trick to play on children.
