I agree 100% with the first 2/3 of your post. Cutting education over welfare is crazy. I disagree in the fact that I do not believe ANY politician will make drastic cuts to welfare.
The right uses welfare as ammunition against the left, just like the left uses war against the right. Neither side is really going to make any changes.
Seriously, how different are welfare benefits when the republicans are in power? Not very is how I see it.
How different is the stance on military force now that Obama is president compared to Bush? Not very is how I see it.
Each side uses these topics to enrage voters, but then never makes any real changes. The voters eat this crap up every time.
