On Tuesday Janet Napolitano vetoed a bill that simply made it easier for employees to have a portion of their paycheck withheld in support of tax credits for gifts the employees wanted to make to public schools, to organizations that work with the poor and to organizations that provide tuition scholarships. Everyone is sort of scratching their heads to figure out what motivated this veto. Since it was entirely voluntary for businesses, there was no burden on them, as she claimed in her veto message. It appears the bill was a casualty of Napolitano’s utter contempt for anything that would empower parents and children with more school options. The public schools and charities that work with the poor were just collateral damage.
