Gates Echoes Shulmaven

Today's Wall Street Journal is running story saying that Bill Gates will charge public spending on healthcare and public employee pensions is crowding out needed spending on public education. This position is in keeping with the longstanding position of Shulmaven where we argue that curbing healthcare costs and public employee pension benefits is a "liberal issue." See the lede below.

"Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates will step into the national debate over state budgets Thursday with a call for states to rethink their healthcare and pension sytems, which he says stifle funding for public schools."
