Comment 148 by privatize education :

i would argue these points myself if it weren't for the fact that they are incorrect, the government is the people's servant that's how this country was founded, it's job is to serve everyone by protecting individual liberties, nowhere in the constitution does it authorize the government to provide education and we have the tenth amendment.

Oh ffs, not this again.

The US Constitution empowers Congress to tax and spend "for the general welfare". Article I Section 8.

If you want to argue against government involvement, then fine, but please leave bogus and frankly daft constitutional arguments at home.
