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.

Absolutely, but also they have to give the impression that they can deliver to their constituents as well. Many former Detroit auto workers were disgusted with their unions because after spending so much on union dues they ended up on the street anyway; Dems can’t have that happen with teachers (although it is happening in NJ).
