Jeb Bush's hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Jeb Bush complains about the tyranny of public schools and promotes vouchers as a means for poor kids to escape and attend private schools. Not the type of a private school his girls went too but that’s a fact he doesn’t want you to know.
He sent his kids to Gulliver Prep in Miami, whose tuition rates are as follows:
Grade
Tuition
 Pre-Kindergarten 3
 $12,760
 Junior Kindergarten
 $14,190
 Senior Kindergarten
 $16,170
 Grades 1 - 4
$19,740 
 Grade 5
$26,560
 Grades 6 - 12
$28,250

Wow!!!!  That is quite a difference from, $4,480 the value of a Florida voucher for the 13-14 school year.
Friends, he wants poor kids to attend the private schools that work out of abandoned strip malls, you know the ones without certified teachers, and he does so not because he believes they will get a better education, something voucher proponents can’t say, he does so because if he could he would drown public schools in a bath tub. 
It is laughable to think he is looking out for children.

This sadly is not where his and the rights hypocrisy ends, Steven Benen for the Maddow Blog wrote: If folks on the left argue, "It's not fair that working people can't choose the same quality, affordable health care as rich people," the right condemns the argument as socialism.
If folks on the left argue, "It's not fair that working people can't choose to have the same access to safe, affordable housing as rich people," the right condemns the argument as socialism.
If folks on the left argue, "It's not fair that working people can't choose to have the same access to reliable transportation as rich people," the right condemns the argument as socialism.
If folks on the left argue, "It's not fair that working people can't choose to have the same quality nutrition as rich people," the right condemns the argument as socialism.
But when schools are the topic of conversation, conservatives claim the high ground -- they may celebrate income inequality as part of a competitive free market, and may not lose any sleep over struggling Americans lacking access to health care, housing, transportation, and food, but if you deny poor kids a voucher to pay private-school tuition, you're obviously a heartless monster.
Mind you not the type of private school they send their kids to but that doesn't bother then either.
