I find it difficult to get worked up about "hypocrisy" in the statements of public officials. You might, for example, check out the records of the people in Congress who have voted for and against school vouchers and find out how many of them are sending their children to private schools.

"What's good for you isn't necessarily good for me," is SOP in politics.

Voting against vouchers while sending your own children to private school is not necessarily hypocritical. Taking the political position that private schools are evil and should be shut down entirely while sending your own kids to them would be hypocritical. Saying that the government shouldn't take money from public schools to pay for private schools doesn't conflict with choosing to spend your own money to send your own kids there.
