Profiting from pain
Republican Senator George Allen of Virginia said the hurricane recovery may be an opportunity to push through parts of the Republican agenda, such as school vouchers and tax cuts.
For example, he said, children displaced by the storm could be giving vouchers to use at private or public schools where they've been relocated, and businesses along the Gulf Coast would benefit from tax breaks. (via Bloomberg)
That's right. Rather than talking about helping out victims he's talking about tax cuts and school vouchers. Conservative idealogues are amazing, aren't they?
