As we’ve found in Michigan that all the threats about teachers being laid off have been lies. Overall there are more teachers today than last year at this time. (whether that’s good or not is debatable)

The crime rate in Detroit is also down despite fewer police.

I think even Dingy is over Bobo as anything other than an unchecked mistake, because he never dreamed in 2008 he'd be relinquishing control (and for Dingy, permanently, as in career over) to Mitch 4 short years later.

Since when do citizens from one state have to pay for teachers, police, and firefighters in other states?? These positions are covered by city, county, and/or state dollars. This should not be responsibility of federal government...

I believe the primary motivation is to get more union money in democratic campaign coffers.

I don’t know if anyone else has said it but Michele Bachmann has been pretty vocal about giving education money and control back to the states.

Personally I would go a step further and give it back to the local communities.

Maybe but it sure wasn't that way in my great grandmother's day. The school she went to was physically built by the men in the local community and all costs were taken care of locally. She would have finished school around 1915 or so. In fact she "graduated" when the teacher decided she was done in the 9th grade.

Education was so much better back then. Even in the northwoods of Michigan she learned things like latin.

Every time this Jobs Bill is brought up by a Dem they say it will save 300 thousand teacher’s, fire fighter’s and policemen jobs and no one challenges this number by asking them where? Give me some specifics.

If these jobs bills were really jobs bills, wouldn’t there be funding streams set up to last longer than 11 months? This bill gets Obama through the next election, then these temps are back on the street. With the overhead of Government, he’d be better off to give the same amount of money to a larger group of people and forget the work part (ala unemployment). Obamski is not interested if these jobs are actually productive jobs. He only cares that they are union jobs so he gets the kickback for his campaign, which makes them better than unemployment because of the kickback.

I am sick of hearing about stupid teachers, as if they are saints or something. Most of them (in the blue states) are overpaid union hacks who get the easiest college degrees in existence, and then indoctrinate kids with liberal bullshit. Our education system is made WORSE when you hire more of these mind-numbed robots for the welfare state. FIRE MORE TEACHERS!

No question, the classrooms around 1915 really educated the students. Not even close now.

The point I was trying to make is that under the Constitution the states are responsible for education, not the federal government. The government usurped the rights of the states ]with the Department of Education, the intrusion into education with billions of dollars and their love affair with the teachers unions.

Joe here. Well, maybe not the “Joe” you were wanting to hear from but a “Joe” nonetheless.

The answer to your question is Yes.

I mean, come on, how else are we going to get all of these Union prop-up bills passed floating the bill for all of the unionized police and firefighters if you aren’t out there raping and stealing and burning things to the ground? Work with me here, okay?

If a few people have to get raped, or robbed, or have their house burned down in order to help the POTUS that’s just the cost of doing business, right?

Exactly. This is RICO-level money laundering.

The demoncrats want to send obscene amounts of money to the poor, decimated ranks of public workers unions. Most of that will be contributed back to the demoncrats as campaign contributions. Voila! The taxpayers fund the demoncrat party!

Did you know that there are 160,000 more public workers now than two years ago? And Dingy Harry says that they are the ones in trouble?

Things are getting closer to the breaking point every day.

And probably hundreds of really cute puppies will die in those fires, and thousands more puppies will be horribly burned and disfigured in those fires; and all because the Republicans won’t vote to fund firefighters in the latest bailout scam.

Republicans hate puppies.

Remember the Good Old Days? Back when Obama, Biden, and the media tried to fool you into believing they were about creating real jobs and economic growth? Now they admit it is about public employees, dare I say SERVANTS? I’m old enough to remember when WE decided how many should be employed. Not the other way around!

Let’s review....weeks ago the dems said NO WAY to Obama’s communistic with a hidden new gov bank formation in it so called, jobs plan.Then... Obama spun that the bad GOP nixed it,when no one wanted it.And now the GOP not supporting TheidiotWon’s nazi plan is a headline that makes the GOP look like all teachers and firemen will be fired and women will be raped because Obama’s manifesto plan did not pass?

How about the headline that the GOP had a good JOBS PLAN SEE RYAN’S PLAN and they said it was throwin granny off a cliff?

WHEN will this Obama nightmare end?

The most telling line from your article....

“They’re also pressing for passage of a poll-tested financing mechanism — a surcharge on income exceeding $1 million.”

So instead of leading by principle, they are simply leading by polls. That’s surely not what they were elected to do...let polls tell them what to do? What kind of men/women are these that let their spines blow with the wind?
