DC's Education Bribe

You can’t call yourself a conservative and ask for education money from Washington.
Republicans dominate both houses of the Missouri legislature.  You’d think they’d act like republicans (lower case).  But when it comes to education bribes from Washington, many of our Republican legislators show little resistance to political seduction. We can help them.
On BigGovernment. com, Bob McCarty highlights the hypocrisy of blasting ObamaCare from one side of the mouth while begging for federal cash out of the other.  He points to a Heritage Foundation video that features our own education watch dog Gretchen Logue.  

Ronald Reagan never got around to dismantling the Department of Education. [Roy Blunt said this was a goal of his] In the year of his 100th birthday, let’s honor him by resisting the seduction of Washington bribes.  The Constitution is clearly silent on the issue, which means the 10th Amendment prohibits appropriations for local schools.  

Here’s What You Can Do

Contact your Missouri State Legislators today and ask them to send Arne Duncan’s bribe back to DC.  Call or email your Missouri State Rep. and Senator. Tell them to send DC’s Education Bribe back where it came from.
Senators Lembke and Nieves are trying to #senditback.  And they need our help.
Call or email now.

Then Do One More Thing 

In addition to calling or writing, please do the following:
  • Tweet using the #senditback hash tag
  • Post on Facebookcomment on ACTION:  Melt the Phones and Jam the Inboxes in Jefferson City

 Don’t Listen to the Liberal Lies
If Missouri takes Arne Duncan’s bribe, it will simply INCREASE general spending, not Education Spending.  That’s just the way government works. 
By returning this bribe (and its burdensome handcuffs), we’ll send a message–and instill fiscal responsibility in both Jeff City and Washington.
Please call your state Representative and Senator today.
