So while everyone was watching Mike Pence break a tie in the Senate and allowing turbo checkbook writer Betsy DeVos buy herself an entire government agency, Congressman Thomas Massey of Kentucky introduced this bill into the house:
The seven co-sponsors of this bill include Michigan’s Justin Amash (no kidding), Andy Biggs of Arizona, Jason Chafetz of Utah, Florida’s Matt Gaetz, Jody Hice of Georgia, Walter Jones of North Carolina, and Idaho’s Raul Labrador.
This is something Republicans insist needs to happen, and have been since Reagan was president. Funny how it never happens though. Conservatives tell their constituents they’re in favor of state and local control of schools, but yet they continue to push policy nationally designed to undermine the party that supports public education. Do as I say, not as I do.
Let’s watch this one and see how far it goes.
