The link at Thomas.gov for HR 1586 doesn't work because Congress doesn't want the details of this bill revealed. Congress paid for the teacher bailout with defense cuts. Here are some of the "recissions":

Sec. 303. Of the funds appropriated in Department of Defense Appropriations Acts, the following funds are rescinded from the following accounts in the specified amounts:

‘Aircraft Procurement, Army, 2008/2010’, $21,000,000;
‘Procurement of Weapons and Tracked Combat Vehicles, Army, 2008/2010’, $21,000,000;

This is pathetic. The O&M dollars are the year end clean-up that takes care of previously unfunded requirements. Base repairs, quality of life issues. Simply pathetic.

so...will these new “administrators” help out with teaching some classes? right? lol!

funny thing is...administrators aren’t paying those teachers union dues.

And out of work teachers aren’t paying them either.

The title of the bill is hilarious. It looks like it was restrained by PayGo, which is why all of the recisions, sunsets, and other modifications were included. I wonder if it was easier to get it passed from a parliamentary standpoint by paying for it this way, or if the last emergency measure they passed (which was immune from PayGo) caused too much bad publicity with the Republicans showing a little bit of spine.

Anyway, thanks for posting the bill. I feel more educated having read it. :)

What is documented here is Pure Treason. The only question is: Do they deserve trial before execution? Just asking.

The communist King Obama will reduce America so it will be unable to protect itself.

Oh! Maybe cause they WANT to cut defense.

" passed from a parliamentary standpoint by paying for it this way, or if the last emergency measure they passed (which was immune from PayGo) caused too much bad publicity with the Republicans showing a little bit of spine."

So it would appear. They also needed to get it passed before August recess so they could tout the teacher payoff for the campaigns.

One would suppose Republicans demanded the bribes be taken out of previous appropriations.

Of course, they wouldn't touch The Obammunist's stimulus stash. Military was next for the socialists.
