Obama’s budget offers short-term help for economy

February 13, 2012 J

Reducing the deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years sounds ok until you take into account that the deficit has increased over $1 trillion per year over the last 4 years. Full story here.

The president will send Congress a budget that will provide short-term help to a struggling economy while offering a long-term plan to deal with soaring deficits, the White House said Sunday. Republicans attacked the spending blueprint as offering more of the same failed solutions for the economy.

The spending plan projects a deficit for this year of $1.3 trillion, the fourth straight year of $1 trillion-plus deficits, and $901 billion next year.

Restoring American Exceptionalism Simulcast in

January 19, 2012 J

This from our sister organization's (Americans for Prosperity Foundation - Arkansas) website. We hope to see you there!

American 15-year-olds rank 35th out of 57 countries in math and literacy!
America shouldn’t be 35th in anything. It’s time to Restore American Exceptionalism!

Rather than protecting and promoting failure, let’s put our kids first. Let’s do even more to support the teachers and the schools that are succeeding, but let’s hold those that are failing firmly accountable. Whether it’s a private school, a charter school, or a traditional public school, parents should have the right to choose the school that will do the best job educating my children. Every child deserves the best education we can give them – and every family has a right to choose the education that’s best for their child.
