Why Is It....

Why is it that so many of the people who want a nationalized health care system, who want Washington in charge of our health care, are the same ones who scream at the thought of the slightest input from Washington about education?

Update, 6/3/11: What a difference a change in presidency makes! Now the liberals want Washington to control everything!

And vice versa.

If you're saying what I think you are, Michael, I disagree.

Those of us who support NCLB do *not* see it as a major intrusion into education by Washington. Washington isn't funding all education (as I said, 7% in California), Washington isn't dictating curriculum, it isn't even telling us what tests to use! It isn't certifying teachers, running the ed schools, or dictating pedagogy. And again, NCLB is *optional* for the states.

Nationalized health care would be the equivalent of doing all those things, except for the part about being optional. I just don't see it.
