Our government.

This comment was made by Elizabeth Warren, a Harvard Law professor, this week tesifying before the Senate Finance Committee.

[t]he costs are staggering. In 2002, a full-day program in a pre-kindergarten offered by the Chicago public school district costs $6,500 a year -- more than the cost of a year's tuition at the University of Illinois.

Warren's comments were made to argue that the government needs to fund these programs because they are too expensive for average families to pay. Warren's whole speech was an argument that today's middle class family is hurting and the government needs to spend money to help them.

Still, $6500 for a pre-school program. What do they do there, go on field trips to Europe?

Well then, obviously the government should start printing more money. In fact, they should print enough money to give each of us, oh, pick a figure, how about $200,000 a year? Then no one would have to work! (Except the guys running the money-printing machines, but we could make illegals do that. They'd have to print extra money for themselves.)
