Maybe the States Indian Casinos and Tribes will step up to the plate and help educate their own people

Just remember that Obama decided to send $250 million to Muslim extremists in Egypt instead of funding reservation security. Oh, and he decided to fund a $1.5 million study of lesbian obesity instead of Headstart.

Just open more casinos. The only two in the metro need some competition. Just don't be as tight as they are. You'll still make billions, don't worry.

It makes you wonder where the other 3.2 Trillion is going? The world is coming to an end with 85 billion. Heck, we gave the east coast 60 billion for storm damage and nobody even seemed to notice. I guess a good public smothering beats the truth any day.

Studies show that Head Start doesn't work anyway. Any gains a kid makes is lost by the third grade. So maybe the entire program should be scrapped to save some REAl money.

And why did President Obama refuse the offer from Republicans to manage these reductions in the increase of spending so that programs such as this would not be effected? Sorry but this is all on Obama.

Tough. Your casinos are tax free and you make millions- share your wealth like Mr Obama wants the wealthy to do.

Oh, do you mean MORE people who pay ZERO taxes are complaining about sucking the life out of the rest of us for no reason at all? Once again, more people digging into my wallet without entitlement.
