Fact Checker says Jeb Bush doesn’t understand what a fact is
It never gets old having to debunk Jeb Bush; unfortunately it never gets anything more than sad as well. If you have heard Jeb Bush speak, right after bashing teachers he invariably says the United States spends more on education than every other country and he’s right except for those pesky countries that have dared spend more than us.
Here is the thing, even if he was right and he is not, then so what. The United States is the most prosperous nation in the world, probably in the history of the world. Shouldn’t we be spending more on education than everyone else, shouldn’t we be spending a lot more?
