At the very least, President Barack Obama can declare a victory in one of his programs: education.
Every day, more and more Americans are learning that every dollar that the government spends is our money. As more programs are announced and more people learn that the government has no regard for spending our money, hopefully -- when they graduate from this learning process -- they can help stop the wasteful, stupid, ignorant spending that is going on now.
We are now learning that the president expects veterans who are wounded to use their own insurance for their injuries. Thank you, Mr. President, for confirming how you value this country's greatest heroes.
Along with Sens. Dodd, Specter and Schumer and Reps. Pelosi, Murtha and Frank, we thank you for redefining the words "transparency," "change" and especially "truth." It amazes me we've managed to survive more than 200 years without you and your friends. It will amaze me even more if we manage to survive the next six months with you.
