You will also note that the title of the bill has nothing to do with the text of the bill. They gutted the old language and inserted new text. But they kept the old title to ensure no one would find it. Scumbags.

Can’t wait to see how many teachers jobs get “saved”.

In our area, the cuts have already happened and the school budgets have already been voted upon.

They can’t bring back teachers w/o putting it up to the vote, and the public isn’t in the mood.

The progressives in Washington are destroying this economy to create a worse crisis than the 2008 melt-down. We are headed for complete government control. Grab onto your possessions, because they would like to take everything you own and all your freedom away, all in the name of fairness and redistribution of wealth. The gloves have come off and they are embolddened enough to dare you to challenge them. Pray for our country.

Wow. Thanks for posting that. Quite an eyeful of cuts. Not only Defense either. It’s quite obvious that they were able to go after quite a few federal agencies in order to give this gift to the unions.

It’s quite the stomach turner, I must say.

.....We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

It's coming again.

“Transparency” my azz. This makes Watergate look like a fly swat. Every voting citizen should see this and understand that the Democrats/Progressives are snake oil salesmen. This makes my blood boil. Un-freakin’-believable.

The amusing thing is that they sit there and pass “truth in lending” type bills and dictate to banks how to clean up corrupted loan practices.

It would seem that we need a “truth in legislation” law, just to clean up incompetent games like this.

And to make this kind of pointed...this really sounds like something that they’d do in a third-world country like Bolivia.

Exactly, the big cuts in Florida happened prior to last school year ( 2009-2010). I was paying tuition for classes today when I overheard some administrators talking about how they could bring back administrative staff with the new funds, as all the teaching positions they had students to justify were filled.

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.

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. :)

" 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.

"There are authorized to be appropriated and there are appropriated out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise obligated for necessary expenses for an Education Jobs Fund, $10,000,000,000:"

Wasn't it supposed to be $16B or $26B?

I’ve lost count regarding all the millions and billions taxpayer $$$$ the NEA received, is receiving and will receive.

Public Schools, like Socialism are an epic failure.

Just looked it up. $10B to pay off teachers union.

Found this nifty comment from The Obammunist's personal radio network, NPR:

NPR's Larry Abramson, who covers education, "That's right. Under spending rules, they have to find offsetting cuts. They found those offsetting cuts in the food stamp program. And by some calculations in 2014, families will lose $59 a month in food stamps. And a lot of people say that that wasn't really a fair tradeoff."

I guess the cuts were for food stamps going to the families of our troops.

Posted this to facebook. Friend explained that recissions were funds not spent yet from those budgets. She said they don’t represent cuts and her knowledge is from her job as a grant writer in a large Texas school district. Please clarify and state the truth in this thing. If I am going to stand up for these things I don’t want to sound like the liberals that go off half cocked. I guess it is my fault for not questioning first. But I would love some clarification that I can understand about this issue.

Great line singling out Texas in there. How can a Texas rep, Doggett, be so political that he punishes his state and support something so unfair.

It would seem that we need a “truth in legislation” law, just to clean up incompetent games like this.

That right there is the next "Contract With America" initiative, but the GOP is either too stupid to recognize it or too obtuse (and complicit) to dare suggest it.

What a mess.

Is this post just emotional manipulation? I would really like some facts to present. Otherwise, I have been duped into playing the game from “our” side.

There are two ways to respond. One view is that these are cuts from prior legislation that granted money to the military. And the money was approved, regardless of whether or not it has been spent.

The second view is that Congress previously approved the military spending with no intention of every letting the military touch the money.

Your friend can use word games to make it look like nothing. But, either way you look at it, the budgeted money was shifted from the military to teachers.

Home • Briefing Room • Speeches & Remarks

The White House

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release August 10, 2010
Remarks by the President on Teacher Jobs

Rose Garden

11:43 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody. One of the biggest challenges of this recession has been its impact on state and local communities. With so many Americans unemployed or struggling to get by, states have been forced to balance their budgets with fewer tax dollars, which means that they’ve got to cut critical services and lay off teachers and police officers and firefighters.

It’s one thing for states to get their fiscal houses in order and tighten their belts like families across America — because families have been doing it, there’s no reason that states can’t do it, too. That’s a welcome thing. But we can’t stand by and do nothing while pink slips are given to the men and women who educate our children or keep our communities safe. That doesn’t make sense. And that’s why a significant part of the economic plan that we passed last year provided relief for struggling states — relief that has already prevented hundreds of thousands of layoffs.

And that’s why today we’re trying to pass a law that will save hundreds of thousands of additional jobs in the coming year. It will help states avoid laying off police officers, firefighters, nurses and first responders. And it will save the jobs of teachers like the ones who are standing with me today. If we do nothing, these educators won’t be returning to the classroom this fall. And that won’t just deprive them of a paycheck, it will deprive the children and parents who are counting on them to provide a decent education. It means that students in Illinois and West Virginia who count on Rachel and Shannon are going to be not getting the education that they deserve. It will deprive countless cities and towns of the law enforcement officials and first responders who risk their lives to keep us out of harm’s way. It will cost us jobs at a time when we need to be creating jobs. In other words, it will take us backwards at a time when we need to keep this country moving forward.

Now, this proposal is fully paid for, in part by closing tax loopholes that encourage corporations to ship American jobs overseas. So it will not add to our deficit. And the money will only go toward saving the jobs of teachers and other essential professionals.

It should not be a partisan issue. I heard the Republican Leader in the House say the other day that this is a special interest bill. And I suppose if America’s children and the safety of our communities are your special interests, then it is a special interest bill. But I think those interests are widely shared throughout this country — a challenge that affects parents, children and citizens in almost every community in America should not be a Democratic problem or a Republican problem. It is an American problem.

I’m grateful that two Republicans joined Democrats to pass this proposal in the Senate last week. And I’m equally grateful that Speaker Pelosi has called back the House of Representatives to a special session so that they can vote as well.

I urge members of both parties to come together and get this done so that I can sign this bill into law. I urge Congress to pass this proposal so that the outstanding teachers who are here today can go back to educating our children. America is watching and America is waiting for Washington to act. So let’s show the nation that we can.

I want to thank Rachel as well as Shannon not only for being here today, but for the extraordinary work that they’re doing each and every day with special education children, with kindergarteners so they’re getting off to a right start. And I also want to thank Arne Duncan, who has been doing as much as anybody all across the country to try to emphasize how important it is to make sure that we are providing a first-class education to every single one of our children.

This bill helps us do that. And so it’s time for Democrats and Republicans to come together and get it done.

Thank you very much, everybody.

END
