Glenn Beck Award*

NJ State Senator Gerald Cardinale (R) explains why he opposes funding of NJ After 3, which provides afterschool programming to impoverished children in NJ’s poorest cities:
I don't object to the program, I object to people being employed in the program through the political system. My point is if it's a valid program, (urban taxpayers) should pay for it yourselves. Some of these Abbott School districts are allowed to spend $30,000 per child of other people's money. If these are good programs they should pay for them.
*Award from NJ Left Behind in honor of Mr. Glenn Beck of Fox News whom Jon Stewart describes as "a guy who says what people who aren't thinking are thinking."
