Obama promise: Focus on getting kids to college
Yahoo / AP ^ | March 13, 2010 | Dorie Turner

Posted on 03/13/2010 3:19:47 PM PST by driftdiver

ATLANTA – President Barack Obama is promising parents and their kids that with his administration's help they will have better teachers in improved schools so U.S. students can make up for academic ground lost against youngsters in other countries.

A plan to overhaul the 2002 education law championed by President George W. Bush was unveiled by the Obama administration Saturday in hopes of replacing a system that in the last decade has tagged more than a third of schools as failing and created a hodgepodge of sometimes weak academic standards among states.

"Unless we take action — unless we step up — there are countless children who will never realize their full talent and potential," Obama said during a video address on Saturday. "I don't accept that future for them. And I don't accept that future for the United States of America."

In the proposed dismantling of the No Child Left Behind law, education officials would move away from punishing schools that don't meet benchmarks and focus on rewarding schools for progress, particularly with poor and minority students. Obama intends to send a rewrite to Congress on Monday of the law.

1. Will require massive tax dollar subsidies for underachievers to go to college.
2. Will require UNION subsidies to create programs (that don’t work)
3. Will require universities to lower standards or face cut in Federal funding

End results. Billions of dollars and flooding our universities with students that don’t belong there.

Translation: another nanny-state program so single parents can dump their brood off on Union workers for huge costs!

We kind of have that now....

Can every kid get in to Harvard? No. But, every kid can get into a State Univeristy. It may take some time and some Community College, but he can get into the Big State University.

Once there, the first 2 years are Graduate Assistants teaching from a textbook. No one fails IF he just shows up for class.

In the last 2 years, no tenured professor is going to fail you if you came to every class and attempted to participate.

Now, you have a bright, shiny degree. You might not know anything and you may have no work ethic, but you have a degree.

Then you show up at work and expect the corner office on day 1.

At least half the kids in college now are wasting their time and their parents’ money.

Under Obama, they can continue to waste their time, and EVERYBODY’s money.

Every person deserves what they earn, its not the job of the govt to determine their merit.

I read this as they will be eliminating any teaching standards so that everyone passes.

Yes, get them to college. Even the dopers and academic slugs like Obama was. Then I suppose we will give them faux degrees, too, and only those who go to graduate school will be expected to actually read, calculate, and think. You can see this coming.

How would Obama know about what it costs to go to college? Why would he know anything about student loans? As far as I know, he was able to go to one of the most expensive schools in the country without any scholarship or financial aid or loans.

The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.

At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote “yes” for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.

When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senator’s answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the time...to go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!

We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!

Obama Plan
http://www.lifenews.com/bio3058.html

Balch calls that “genuine chutzpah” because the Obama plan makes that claim “even as it imposes what will be ever-increasing rationing on senior citizens.”
The Senate health care bill already contains provisions that threaten to ration lifesaving medical treatment for seniors.

NRLC says state commissioners of the new health insurance exchanges created by the bill would be given significant power. They could deny people who are trying to obtain policies in the exchange the option of choosing health plans less likely to deny treatment, by limiting what they would be allowed to pay for such policies.

Slashing Medicare to pay for healthcare reform an ugly shell game
Dr. Stuart M. Shapiro,
July 27, 2009

http://www.mcknights.com/slashing-medicare-to-pay-
for-healthcare-reform-an-ugly-shell-game/article/140656/
If the cost is by cutting Medicaid and Medicare, then taxpayers are in for a rude awakening when millions will retire without money to pay for their healthcare. Ransoming seniors’ long-term care for immediate, large-scale health reform is more politically beneficial for its supporters in the short-term than it is reasonable for everyone in the long run.

In fact, even in the short-term, one could argue that taxpayers, including the elderly, are looking at an old-fashioned shell game from Washington. No sooner was the ink dry on the federal stimulus package, which provided millions of dollars to support care for the elderly in Pennsylvania, before Congress and the administration began to propose major cuts in Medicare to finance healthcare reform. Because Medicare payments support quality care in our nation’s nursing homes, the proposed cuts nationally approaching $50 billion in Medicare payments for the care of the elderly is guaranteed to undercut the quality gains of the past decade. In Pennsylvania, if the proposals currently on the table are enacted, these policies would result in an almost 10% reduction in cumulative payments over 10 years, or more than $2.1 billion.
None of the answers on healthcare, Social Security, Medicaid or Medicare is easy. But there is one thing we do know: Our population is growing older, and doing so rapidly. Cutting money from the programs that finance care for Pennsylvania seniors is seriously flawed. There is no simple or single solution. But there is a wrong way, and taking money from the care for American seniors is deeply flawed.

Stuart H. Shapiro, M.D., is the president and CEO of the Pennsylvania Health Care Association

This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollee’s cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.) http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/99xx/doc9925/12-18-HealthOptions.pdf

Congress plans to block Tricare fee increases

http://www.navytimes.com/news/2009/10/military_tricarefees_blocked_100709w/

By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009
Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators.
The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011.

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011.

“President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees” in fiscal 2010, Matz said. “We took them at their word, and I can’t believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward,” he added.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

Oh joy. The government is going to fix public education.

Another reason to homeschool if I ever heard one.

I'm great-granddad, not granny. But I need a can opener to get to the dog food.

Then, my feeble brain started wondering: it was pretty evident that the Chinese dog food protein enhancer (malamine?) killed my beloved Jack Russell terrier.

Now, has that melamine problem been taken care of? Need to know before the can opener becomes a priority.

For about 9 years we have had a program in Nevada called “Millennium Scholarship”. Tuition paid at State institutions. Started out a 3.5gpa was needed to be eligible. It is now up to a 3.8 or so. The Freshman dropout rate is horrendous. Waste of time and energy for many kids and the taxpayers.

For about 9 years we have had a program in Nevada called “Millennium Scholarship”. Tuition paid at State institutions. Started out a 3.5gpa was needed to be eligible. It is now up to a 3.8 or so. The Freshman dropout rate is horrendous. Waste of time and energy for many kids and the taxpayers.

Here’s how he can help education:

1) Abolish the Dept of Education

2) Stop all Federal funding of education, and correspondingly, cut the taxes which would have been used for that purpose.

3) Never say another word about education. Leave it to the states and localities.

An Obama promise is worth about as much as our dollar.
