The Change We Need

Posted on Tuesday, October 4 2005 by Heather Brandon

The New York Times has an article today by Michael Janofsky about Governor Mitt Romney’s proposal to give teachers merit pay based on classroom performance. He is quoted as saying, “I’m looking for change, and I’ll spend money for change on the potential that it’ll make a difference.”

He could consider turning to First Citiwide Change Bank, where they “just make change.” From their commercial:

We are not going to give you change that you don’t want. If you come to us with a hundred-dollar bill, we’re not going to give you two-thousand nickels—unless that meets your particular change needs.

Romney also went all Anthony Kiedis on us when he said, “It’s hard to get the public to support everything, but this is a multiyear effort. We have to chip away, chip away, chip away.”
