After all, they always seem to find money for the salaries they truly care about.
Remember that Gov. Rick Scott recently made headlines for jacking up his chief of staff's salary by 26 percent, to $189,000.
So did House Speaker Dean Cannon and Senate President Mike Haridopolos when it was revealed that they had managed to find $100,000-plus salaries for more than 60 of their top staffers, advisors and aides.
That's a lot of money for guys who often complain about government spending.
The excuses are usually the same: "We must pay these people what they're worth."
So it speaks volumes about what these guys think your kids' teachers are "worth."
We can do better.
There are solutions.
All that's required is for the politicians to fight as hard for students and teachers as they do for corporations and their cronies — and as hard as they promised voters back during their campaigns.
