Philanthropy as seed money


Tags Taxes and SpendingInterventionism


The NY Times is reporting that billionaires Eli Broad and Bill Gates are "joining forces for a $60 million foray into politics in an effort to vault education high onto the agenda of the 2008 presidential race.” What appears to be an extension of their philanthropic activities is simply seed money for the next political solution to failing government schools; a solution that will end up pounding more of my tax dollars down the rat hole that is public education.

A suggestion for Broad and Gates: Keep your money so that I can ultimately keep mine.
