Taxpayers throw all their voucher money into Christian Religion Schools! These aren't "Choice" schools, they're Sunday Schools.

This Northwestern Oshkosh news story failed to mention the most important issue:
A total of 78 students are getting state-funded vouchers this year to attend private schools in the Oshkosh area.
All 78 students are going to Christian schools, and most of that voucher cash is ending up in the pockets of those who already have kids in those schools.

Scott Walker's promise to expand the program statewide will by default, which would create a separate parallel publically funded religious based school system. The government would then be establishing a religion, in this case Christianity. We've always assumed the Constitution prevented the establishment of "a" religion. But nothing in the 1st Amendment prevents the establishment of a number of religions.  
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion...
No one seems to have a problem with that?
