Making a Profit off Educating our kids GOP's big campaign promise for 2014!!!

The GOP will be running on the issue of vouchers this upcoming election, but it won't really be about education. It's another marketing ploy to soften their problematic anti-minority image, the one they've so meticulously constructed over the last 50 years.

That's why I found it interesting to see Upfront's Mike Gousha comment on this issue at the same time RNC knucklehead Reince Priebus started tweeting the wonders of "choice" and how profiting off our children's education somehow empowers parents:

The not so subtle Priebus tweet:

Gee, ya think Jeb Bush might be running for president too? 

Just the fact that students are now referred to as commodities should tell you something.
