If you watched Ken Burns’ documentary series last Summer, this will be especially heartbreaking:
Governor Dave Freudenthal is threatening to sell off a chunk of one of America’s most beautiful national parks unless the Obama administration comes up with more money to pay for education in the financially beleaguered state.
He says he will auction land valued at $125m (£80m) in the Grand Teton national park, one of the country’s most stunning wildernesses. Part of the park was donated by John Rockefeller Jr.
We can’t pay for education and aid to the states. Only tax cuts. So eff the national parks. Wall Street CEOs need their tax breaks!
