Bushes Capitalize On Education

One thing about these bushies, they never feel liked they have quite ripped off the American people enough:

Bush Family Co. Capitalizes on Education Act

A company headed by President Bush's brother and partly owned by his parents is benefiting from Republican connections and federal dollars targeted for economically disadvantaged students under the No Child Left Behind Act.

With investments from his parents, George H. W. and Barbara Bush, and other backers, Neil Bush's company, Ignite! Learning, has placed its products in 40 U.S. school districts and plans to market internationally.

At least 13 U.S. school districts have used federal funds available through the president's signature education reform, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, to buy Ignite's portable learning centers at $3,800 apiece.

When the Bushes come over for dinner be sure to count the hand towels before they leave.
