Three Questions No One Asked the President

During President Obama’s press conference on March 24th, why didn’t someone in the media ask the following questions?  We all could have learned much from the responses.

(1)     Mr. President, if education is a top priority, why did you veto the bill to give school vouchers to deserving DC students who want to attend better schools, while at the same time you send your children to elite schools?

(2)    You said many times that we should invest billions of dollars in healthcare to save money in the long run. Every nation that has already invested billions in healthcare has higher costs than before their government was so involved.  Why would the U. S. be different?

(3)    What country in the history of mankind has spent its way out of a depression? Even during the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt’s Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau, lamented: “We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work….I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started….And an enormous debt to boot!”
