33. Are you always that careless about statistics?
"A huge majority"?

Obviously, some people will still be too poor to escape even with the vouchers.
Just as obviously, some people will be able to swing it with the voucher, who weren't able to originally.

I wont demean the discussion by throwing around phrases "Huge majority" when I haven't got the slightest idea what the actual numbers are.

By the way, if you're looking for a good comeback, try coming up with valid statistics that support your "huge majority" claim. That's probably shut me up, at least for a little while.

How about this:

Explain to me how it is PROGRESSIVE to make it any harder than it has to be for a child to escape a failed, government run school.
