Elections, as we are too-often reminded, have consequences. You vote for someone who says that you can keep your health care plan and … er, bad example.

But here is a better one.  As reported by the New York Post’s Richard Johnson:

Bill de Blasio is considering hiring … Randi Weingarten as the next NYC schools chancellor …

Ms. Weingarten, head of the American Federation of Teacher is, of course, doctrinaire in her opposition to:

… charter schools, teacher evaluations and most of the other reforms Mayor Bloomberg enacted.

In New York, it seems, the bad old days will soon be here again.
