The result of a Texas education. Subtract 8 billion for the poor ) then add 25 million dollars in a mansion makeover = Texas Math!! Screw the poor (and not take Fed money) when you can have gold leaf toilet paper to wipe your ass. That’s not just Texas math, that’s Republican Math.
Texas Mansion Gets a $25 Million Makeover: BANG FOR THE BUCK
Idiot Republican Governor Perry, can’t provide children’s health care or take care of the poor but viola’ … here’s $25 million for shiny faucets for your Texas Mansion.
For their $21.5 million, plus $3.5 million in public donations, taxpayers got inch-thick longleaf pine floors, an added wing and a geothermal heating-and-cooling system that required digging 40 350-foot (107-meter) wells. The cost of restoring the 25-room house would be enough to pay for almost 11 million student lunches at Austin’s high schools.
The cost also covered tracking down and buying old-growth Bastrop pine to restore the six 29-foot columns adorning the front of the Greek Revival-style house, said Dealey Herndon, the project manager. Workers stripped layers of lead paint from the white brick exterior and replaced the burned roof.
“I had to question every day whether this was a good use of the money,” Herndon said. “The cost of this is very high. Everything that wasn’t original architecture had to go out — the kitchen equipment, the cabinets, the bathroom tile.”
This type of math is why Perry’s Texas is 51st in education. KEEP EM DUMBER THAN ROCKS!! Good job Rick.
