Palin cut special needs funding by 62%

She made these cuts while Alaska's oil revenue was booming.

Grasping Reality with Both Hands: The Semi-Daily Journal Economist Brad DeLong


To the families of special-needs children all across this country, I have a message: For years, you sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters. I pledge to you that if we are elected, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House.

But then you read:

However, a comment here notes that Palin actually slashed funding for schools for special needs kids by 62%. Budgets: FY 2007 (pre-Palin), 2008, 2009 (all pdfs).

This is consistent with her political record and ideology.

We already know McCain's dismal attitude towards support for disabled persons, and Obama's strong policy position.

A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote against our children and loved ones.
