    They get QUALITY education because they have federal funding.

    Not really. The plan is an exact copy of the Texas plan, brough by Bush and his Sec. Of Ed. Kennedy worked out the legal language, but the plan itself solely comes from Bush and texas. It's more than a little misleading to try and give Kennedy credit for NCLB.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The legislation was proposed by President George W. Bush on January 23, 2001. It was coauthored by Representatives John Boehner (R-OH), George Miller (D-CA), and Senators Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and Judd Gregg (R-NH). The United States House of Representatives passed the bill on May 23, 2001 (voting 384–45),[6] and the United States Senate passed it on June 14, 2001 (voting 91–8).[7] President Bush signed it into law on January 8, 2002.
    Notice you only see coauthors with the exception of one name.

    An interesting pie chart here, more than 50% of federal budget is spent on defense.

    That is the Discretionary part of the budget. Do you understand what makes up the budget and that discretionary spending is just one of two parts?

    What budget? We haven't had an accepted Federal Budget in 3years. And before you say it Democrats controlled Congress the first 2 of those 3. Talk about a straw man.

    But you yourself stated 'NCLB (a federal funding program) has failed'. So how are you defining 'quality education'?

    I am not sure that is 100% correct either, but ok, it was at the least bi partisan, so to use it as a talking point sledge hammer against republicans is about as dishonest as one can get I think.
