I was a fan. He was a big influence on me post-911. RIP.
$15k per student
Total Expenses: $1,169.4 (millions)
Total Students: 75,551
1,169.4 (millions) / 75,551 = 15478
So (roughly), MPS spends $15k per student

“The FSOC’s decision to expand the too-big-to-fail designation to nonbank firms will be seen as the most damaging action taken under Dodd-Frank”
Instead of going away, “Too Big To Fail” is expanding:
It was no surprise that the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) decided last week to cite a number of nonbank firms as systemically significant, placing them in line for greater regulatory scrutiny by the Federal Reserve. What was a surprise is that — in the midst of a huge outcry in Congress about banks that are too big to fail (TBTF) — neither Congress nor the administration asked the FSOC to stop the designation process until the too-big-to-fail issue had been fully thought through. After all, by designating some nonbanks firms as TBTF — GE Capital, AIG, and Prudential Insurance are in the group — the FSOC has created a whole new set of institutions that will now be considered TBTF.

America move from entrepreneurial capitalism to state crony capitalism continues step-by-step.
How about this idea for 4 year plan:
- 4% across the board income tax surcharge for all taxpayers regardless of income bracket
- 4% across the board reduction in real spending (not projected increases in funding) for year one
- In each subsequent year, total real spending has to decrease an additional 4% (it doesn’t have to be 4% across the board though)
- At the end of 4 years, the income tax surcharge expires automatically
- If in any year, total real spending doesn’t decrease 4%, the Income Tax surcharge is suspended
- If in any year, total real spending doesn’t decrease by 4% the permanent base pay of members of congress, congressional political staffers, POTUS, VPOTUS, and executive branch political staffers decreases by 4%
Its better then the cliff. Also a “4 year” plan sounds like a “5 year” plan so the lefties should like that. I think Instapundit’s ideas should be included as well.
Call it the Purpleslog 4 x4 x 4 Plan.
