Rather than fix the tax code to make it fair, he'd rather raise fees for public services, which disproportionally hurts the poor, or just cut services altogether. Like public education, if he can't eliminate it, he's happy to starve it through understaffing, underfunding, and paying the lowest wages he can get away with. That's not a demonstration of economic responsibility; Adidas Hi Tops White
The people of Alabama deserve Adidas Duramo 5 Women's Review and want a Governor who puts his money where his mouth is when it comes to education. Gov. Bentley didn't just fail with teachers; he's failed all of Alabama.
What Bentley does exceedingly well is recite rhetoric and talking points about the importance of education. He knows that kind of talk resonates at chamber of commerce meetings and in campaign speeches. After all, no one in politics would dream of coming out against children having a good education.
On top of that, he is clueless about how the state will pay back the millions it borrowed for education from the Alabama Trust Fund in 2009 which, by the way, needs to be paid back by June of 2015.
But Bentley's words remain starkly dissonant when compared to the action he has taken to improve Alabama's public education system and outcomes. Furthermore, he supports "trade school" type initiatives that are more geared toward the economy of yesteryear, rather than supporting programs that would help Alabama become a leader in science and technology in current and future industries.
think that the recession, the federal government, or Obama is to blame for all of Alabama's long standing and generational problems. Sadly, he fails to realize that the state needs strong leadership and solutions not imaginary scapegoats.
Just when you think Bentley has finally hit rock bottom, he somehow manages to dig the hole even deeper.
Bentley appears stuck in an austerity mind set that quietly and passively condones, through incompetence and inaction, the gross underfunding of schools and teachers. Maybe he'd feel differently if he had to buy office supplies out his own pocket for all the people who work for him just like the teachers who are forced to by supplies for students out of their own pockets.
it's a slap in the face to hard working Alabamians that have paid for and need basic public services.
Bentley has failed teachers yet again by recently saying that he is not likely to call a special legislative session to give teachers a meager 2% Adidas Duramo 7 Ladies Running Shoes
Bentley flunks again with teacher
Not only has Bentley shown that he has no answers to address Alabama's current educational crisis, he has also shown that he has no clear vision for the future. Is his idea of leadership to just myopically muddle through and pray that revenues pick up?
increase in pay due to sluggish tax revenue. In 2008, he grandstanded as a "champion" for educators, but has done remarkably little to improve the quality of public education in the state and certainly hasn't done anything to raise teacher's pay.
This is just another example of how Bentley passes the buck and never accepts responsibility for Alabama's poor economic situation. Bentley acts like he's just blissfully unaware that Alabama seems to hover near the bottom of every list. He seems to Adidas Energy Boost 2 Size 12
Has it ever occurred to him that the whole problem originates within a state tax system that is, hands down, the most regressive in the nation? Apparently not, because he sure enough likes doling out corporate welfare like candy and he remains staunchly opposed to any progressive idea that would increase state revenues. You know things like a lottery, taxing out of state corporations, or marginally increasing corporate property taxes.
