Why educate the poor? Stupid. Socialist Paradise. Improvement by division. Idiots.

I'll take odds right now that they only manage to get 20-25 of those schools built before they run out of money again. Who's with me?

Default 53 schools for 2.9 Billion

How many schools was the initial 8.5 Billion supposed to have built?

Bob - You've underestimated the "greed and stupidity" element, so I'd revise that number down to 18!

I think even 18 is high.

I'm game. They'll get 33 built before taxes hit 6 figures on that 3 bed 1 bath cape in Mahwah.

I don't recall the exact number, but it was approximately 3x the number of schools they actually got built with it. This next 50 that got approved is but a small part of what's left in the pipeline.

This is a complete shame. They are building 5 new schools in Jersey City paid for buy the suburbanites. And Donald Trump is building 2 TAX ABATED highrise towers in Jersey City with many condos going for millions. There are 100's of millionaires living in Jersey City with tax abatements in many high rises and us poor stupid slobs have to pay for for their schools. Give me a f----- break. CORZINE YOU ARE A JERK. They are also building one in Hoboken. It's election time so that dummy that forgot his seatbelt will be showing up tomorrow in Jersey City to shake hands with the people that put and will put him back in office. In our town it cost 15 million for an addition last year and we didn't get one cent from the state. Maybe if trump built here we would get free schools. I'm so pissed I kicked my waste paper basket over. GGGGRRRR
