Might Greg Rope-a-Dope His Way to Another Win over Jay Mathews?

So I have not been keeping track this year, and election years are not usually the best for big reforms. The over under is 7 new or expanded programs. It wasn’t looking good in the early rounds, but slowly but surely Greg just might float like a butterfly and sting like a bee his way to (yet another) win.

Florida expanded their ESA, Mississippi seems poised to do the same. South Dakota’s governor signed a small tax credit program, and today comes word of a small voucher program that may pass in Maryland as the result of a budget deal. Am I missing anything so far?

Jason has a useful rundown on the private choice action in 2015 over at Cato after North Carolina added some style points to Greg’s latest easy triumph over Jay Mathews. Very, very, very good year. It is still time to raise the bar on the bet.
