    Schools also get state assistance which is their main assistance. We don't have a federal school system thus we shouldn't have taxpayers funding state teachers.
    So you are for cutting spending on a federal level for schools? Even if that means teachers get payed less and the school can't afford new text books?

    That is the decision for the states not the Federal Govt. who want to put the country on a "sugar high" and kick the can down the road.

    If you have read the bill then tell me what happens after the Federal funding stops and why you buy the rhetoric from this President?

    Are you for the Federal Government owning the means of production whether it be a school, or a factory?

    How many of the 63% do you think have read the bill? Given the solid reporting we get from the media today I'm sure their opinion is based on the jaded view of whichever news source the public prefers thus affecting the poll. Essentially one could interchange 'opinion' with 'poll' as in 'everyone has one' thus questioning their accuracy.

    If you watch MSNBC or Fox News, then yeah. If you read the Wallstreet Journal, then no.

    Catawba touts himself as a liberal, wonder how Catawba feels about one of the biggest Democrat liberals in history, FDR, not supporting public unions? That is what this job's bill does, keeps union employees employed for another year which just kicks the can down the road and circumvents states' rights and responsibilities.

    If you cut federal spending that means SHOULD be able to cut federal receipts. The reduction of federal receipts will leave more resources at the local/state level to be spent on teacher pay and new text books. Consider the effectivenesss of LOCAL schools spending their money on what they KNOW they need to spend it on vs the FG deciding from a more distant view. Also consider the increase associated with a straighter, shorter line of financing (less bureaucracy).

    Yes, because the federal government doesn't give them money. They raise the teachers salaries directly and send the schools textbooks in the mail... Wrong, they give them money which is requested, and then the local school board decides where that money is spent... Their has to be bureaucracy btw to stop government corruption. It is called a redundency system. Also, not every state (as I have pointed out) has capital like the state next to it.
