Never let it be said that Barack Obama doesn’t reward his friends. Fifty years after Lyndon Johnson lost the War on Poverty, Obama is graciously handing taxpayer money to a rent-seeking L.A. nonprofit to turn the city’s worst neighborhoods into “Promise Zones.”
Money…would go to the L.A. Unified School District and the nonprofit Youth Policy Institute to increase the number of support services at schools. The institute has received $32 million to provide tutoring, mentoring, staff support, and after- and before-school care to 20 schools. [Emphasis added]
The Youth Policy Institute‘s Executive Director Dixon Slingerland has donated $743,713 to Barack Obama since 2007. Here’s a list of his political donations in the 2012 election cycle, which include payments to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Hillary Clinton for President. The organization is funded by various government agencies, corporations and the creeps at La Raza.
While it’s doubtful that the targeted neighborhoods will see any long term improvements, in the land of Obama some people will never go hungry.
