Stem Cells Vs. Vouchers

Like the voucher initiative that was rolled out earlier this week, yesterday's stem cell votes and veto were in large part political theater aimed at the fall elections. Lawmakers got to vote for or against stem cell use, and Bush got to do his pretend-conservative act.

What's different about the voucher initiative, it seems to me, is that it could in some form very well pass the House and Senate and become law. More and more lawmakers, including Democratic ones, have voted for vouchers in various circumstances. Public school choice -- including NCLB transfers -- haven't seemed to have worked Ditto for 'restructuring.' And at least some of the Constitutional arguments against vouchers are gone.
