Dean Barkley on Education
Independent Senate challenger
"Why not a $10,000 tax credit? Why not $20,000?" asked Barkley. "Who's going to pay for this? We're broke. I'm not going to pander to people."
Franken responded that the money spent would be equal to just a few weeks of the Iraq war and could be financed by reducing tax breaks for millionaires.
A: Support. I support vouchers for public schools, not private or religious based schools.
Q: What would you do about the decline of morals and ethics in America?
A: Morality can never be legislated. It comes from a strong family with beliefs in a higher power and strong spiritual beliefs. They will not be learned from Washington D.C.. It is the job of parents to teach these values to their children.
