More Sequester Spending

How bad is the Department of Education? Well, they don't understand the meaning of sequester.

Sorry to say it but they announced more spending, again.

The topic of the DoEd's post says it all:
U.S. Department of Education Awards More Than $48,000 to Help Vermont’s Windham Central Supervisory Union Recover From Teen Suicide
Yes it's a shame a kid committed suicide. But it happens.

Is the right step though to take $48,000 from tax payers and give it to the school district? For what? Nothing was destroyed.

But there are children's psyches to consider. We need to help them!
  • Yeah. There's nothing more convenient than a strawman argument.

I have some free therapy I found on youtube. You're welcome.

Here's the current tally of sequester spending damage from the DoEd alone.
