Soon after Congress returns from the Memorial Day recess, liberal House Democrats and teacher unions will make one last push to pass a $23 billion fund to prevent teacher layoffs.

Democrats are looking to package the fund with war and disaster spending in a supplemental appropriations bill the House will vote on as early as this week.

Dear Democrats;

You pass a $23 billion fund for teachers, then I reduce my property taxes by the 60% used to fund schools in my area.

I just needed to redistribute what you are redistributing back to the people who need it most.

Respectfully,
Joe Taxpayer

Why? They don't do anything. All they do is consume like all the other government dependents.

RE :”Soon after Congress returns from the Memorial Day recess, liberal House Democrats and teacher unions will make one last push to pass a $23 billion fund to prevent teacher layoffs...Democrats in the House pushing for the fiscal aid warn that up to 300,000 teachers could lose their jobs soon because the $44.5 billion in fiscal aid in the 2009 stimulus bill is running out.The letter was signed by 104 other House Democrats, the American Federation of Teachers and National Education Association unions, and other public education groups. The teacher fund has gotten public backing from Education Secretary Arne Duncan and senior White House economist Christina Romer. The measure is likely to run into resistance from Democratic freshman and fiscally conservative Blue Dogs, both of whom face tough reelection races this fall.

I saw a NEA spokesman on FNC 'Your World' (with Cavuto) a week ago or so claim that this money was required to ‘save our children’. I got this picture in my head of teachers unions strapping bomb-packs on the kids backs using them as hostages. Maybe the local governments could cut public sector retiree's pay to keep the ‘teachers’ employed. None of that money goes to help the 'children'.

The money we waste on our public education system is horrendous.

In our town we just voted down a $32,000,000 ($51,000,000 when paid off) bond election to build......guess what...........what does it have to do with education........was it needed.......???????

ANSWER: New ATHLETIC facilities and improvements to others. Not one dollar for education.

We are a town of 22,000 people!

Meanwhile, our infrastructure (streets, sewer and water mains) looks like something in a standard Mexican border town.

Schools need to concentrate in teaching a viable trade or profession, not sports.

This is simply a step toward nationalizing public schools. You know this money will have more strings attached than a loom..

I always said that “No Child Left Behind” means we have to keep ALL the children (except democrats and statists like Bush who send their kids to private schools) behind. Classic socialism class system.

The elite sent their kids to St. Albans at $30,000.00 per year. Our kids get stale Doritos, illiterate teachers, and a copy of Das Kapital.

Close, but there are no copies of Das kapital, just NEA commie propaganda in the lil’ pointy heads of the NEA’s “teachers”.

Let the kids rot! Their parents voted this in, so let them suffer. The spawn of Democrats WILL vote like their parents.

Pray for the Republic - but remember to B.L.O.A.T.!

I watched all the NEW schools go up 2.8 mil for ONE big brick fancy smancy school (complete with a basement jail for in school suspension) and assault write ups for flatulance.

Paid for by us CONTROLLED BY THE FEDS.

Whoever runs for POTUS had best dismantle governemnt control in our schools or we are doomed even if everything else gets semi- cleaned up.

All that money could be used for school vouchers.

Then the good teachers might be hired by the good schools, and all the dead wood could get jobs at Burger King.

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO - do you hear me now?

Bailout another union and we want bailouts for every single citizen in the US (actually I don't want ANY bailouts, but you get my point). Isn't there something in the Constitution that states the Feds cannot give one group bennies over another group, or some states over other states?

Schools are getting enough money. If the job can’t be done now, tripling the funding won’t do the trick.

In my county I have been voting "no" on every school bond issue since I moved here. Unfortunately, they always pass. Masochism, I guess.

Actually after reading this article I jotted of a letter to my representative. Which for my area where they are laying off whole slews of teachers...will get somebody a bit riled up.

I told him bailout vote, no property taxes for schools.

Seriously. They’ve been paid once already. I refuse to pay them twice for the same job. Get it.

Then don't bail them out. Tax revolt time is here. Congress bailsout teachers...no local tax revenue.

Did Cavuto ask him why schools were better 50 years even they spent less money?
