SCOTTSDALE ARIZONA – August 11, 2010 –
The House passed the bill Tuesday, which gives money to teachers. The Senate passed the bill on the previous Thursday. It was to be expected; that’s the way Democrats operate. They give money to unions; in return they get the votes of union supporters.
They are not concerned about the education of children, which includes the education of African American children. African Americans should ask themselves, are my children really benefiting from money being given to teacher’s unions? Further, they should ask themselves how many African Americans benefit from Democrats buying votes.
"Further increasing taxes on employers to pay for bailouts in the public sector is not helping to create jobs and grow the economy," Hoekstra said in a statement. "Government needs to step on the brakes and stop creating new mandates that require additional taxpayer dollars to pay for them." Link
From the Detroit News: Link
“Moderate Maine Republicans Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins cast the key votes to break the GOP filibuster.” Link Moderates my foot, they’re progressives. Progressives, Socialists, and Democrats are all the same thing. There are so called Republican progressives. They are republicans in name only.
In 1936 local school boards ran the grade schools and high schools. They were excellent.
Now, the Federal Government has expanded it’s tyranny to public education. There have been attempts to abolish the Department of Education. Tons of money has been spent by the Federal Government Department of Education, but they have failed miserably. Ronald Reagan wanted to abolish the Federal Government Department of Education. When I looked for a link, there were some web sites that could be disputed. So, I picked a PBS web site for the liberals to salivate about. Link
One of the major ways the Democrats have harmed African Americans is through their actions regarding the Federal Government Department of Education. The Democrats have harmed the education of African American children; they certainly have not improved the education of African American children in particular.
The latest give away to teacher’s unions is a glaring example of the incompetence of Democrats.
Some may say that giving the money to teacher's unions and others saves jobs. Giving money to buy jobs is a phony way of gaining jobs. There's a way to gaining jobs. Free Markets and capitalism provide jobs; not give aways and bailouts. If you don't believe me; ask China or India.
