This is an article about the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It's heartwarming to know about the good they are doing.
However, there is the following piece of information:
In its 2007 budget proposal, for example, the Bush administration eliminated a $93.5 million program to underwrite the development of smaller schools, specifically citing the increase in support for those schools from "nonfederal funds" from the Gates Foundation and Carnegie Corporation of New York
So, their good intentions to help our country's children ended up instead helping reduce taxes for other super-rich people who were greedier than they, through no fault of their own.. I wonder how they felt about this.
