Looks like enough people have had enough of all the bogus companies and jobs Mitch has not brought to Indiana but still touts that he has.

His cuts on education is only hurting our future leaders that are in schools now. 4 counties surrounding me are still hurting from all the jobs that left then all the empty promises/jobs Mitch and local mayors have promised but don't show up.

so sad that Roob and Daniels don't appear to be on the same page or on the same message.

Please. K-12 wasteful is out-of-control. One school just _had_ to have a swimming pool, so over the next two or three decades, so did _every_ other school, if the taxpayers didn't fight it. One school just had to have a fancy brick football stadium with artificial turf, so over the next two or three decades, so did _every_ other school.

I went to a small rural/suburban district. I got a great education. I got a great education with an old, old building for an elementary school, a middle school that wasn't even 100% completed, and a high school that had no fancy million dollar football stadium, no swimming pool, no second gym, and no fancy auditorium. That school district played it right. They slowly have built those things over time as funds allowed _and_ because they had very good growth over the last 15 years that didn't slam a small # of taxpayers with millions upon millions of spending.

K-12 upper administration wages are sickening. No K-12 superintendent should be making more than the governor of Indiana. That is totally off the charts. The only way our future leaders are hurt in their future is if their _parents_ blow off assisting in their education. If parents think it is solely the job of some teacher and over paid administrator to educate their kid, they might not be happy with the education the kid will receive. It is time to cut administration, focus on _education_, not sports, and support teachers.

Ravekid I agree with swelled upper admin salaries and the sports things at school. Sadly though neither one of those will get the cuts it will be in the form of teachers or classes offered. So yes our future leaders are the one that will be hurt.

Last I checked, the economy sucks, and my opinion is that it will suck for a while. It is high time to vote in politicians, both at the state and local level who will do some massive, much needed over haul of our K-12 system. I am seriously talking laws stating what wages and benefits will be. If we can do it for elected Sheriffs, Prosecutors, and Judges, we should be able to do it for these public corporations. The only reason teachers and classes are being cut is because the upper admin makes the cut, and they don't want to ruin a good thing. That is the problem, the super works with the school board, and most of those relationships are just too cozy.

I think the situation for this country is bleak. K-12 is just one piece of the pie and _every_ piece wants more and more and more, and they are willing to me the cuts that really need to be made.

Just thought I'd bring this thread back to life with a video of Mitch's appearance on Lawrence O'Donnell's show.

Clearly, means testing. Clearly, retirement age, over time. What you’re saying to these younger people is – who, by the way, I think, barring disasters, are going to live to possibly old ages, as we have always thought of it…. They will live to be more than 100, because, again, barring accidents or something, or war, well over. They should. They’ll be replacing body parts like we do tires. If you ask a young person who’s paying any attention to this, “How old do you expect to be, and how long would you like to be a vital working person?” they’re not going to find this offensive. Thirty years from now, you might work at 68, 70, 72….

Where to start:
-He didn't pass massive taxes on the "rich" (whoever they are).
-He didn't force Indiana to adopt a $20/hour living wage.
-He didn't raise income taxes at least 10% in-state so unionized state workers could see a 10%-20% increase in pay and benefits.
-He allows for private hospitals to exist in Indiana.
-He allows for private businesses to exist in Indiana.


Knowing Obermanns politics, anyone of those is likely to get you called "worser" on that show!!

As far as Mitch running for president: I like his ideas in some cases, but he is too right-wing socialist for me (ie: Bailing out billionaires with taxpayer cash).
