During a recent interview, Elizabeth Warren gave a rather revealing answer when asked for specifics about how she would pay for things she has planned in education.
She said “there’s always money.”
Maybe what she meant was that there’s always someone else’s money.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Warren Pressed on Spending: ‘There’s Always Money’
Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren brushed off a question on how she planned to pay for expensive education proposals, saying “there’s always money.”
In a November interview with National Education Association president Lily Eskelsen García, the Massachusetts senator said “The way I see it, there’s always, c’mon, there’s always money. It’s there. Are we going to spend the money on defense or are we going to spend the money on our children?”
García asked whether Warren would commit to more funding for Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act. “If the answer is yes, how do you pay for that?” García asked.
“So the answer is yes,” Warren responded. “And pay for it? This is about our priorities, what matters most to us. A budget is about priorities.”

Here’s more from the same interview, where Warren tells parents that if they don’t like their kids’ schools, they need to step in and fix it themselves. What an inspiring message:

Her message is not hitting home:
If you are poor and go to a failing traditional school, Elizabeth Warren thinks you should just start volunteering and making it better because you can’t abandon the other poor kids in the school.
