The Message of Welfare: 'No, You Can't'

So, you didn't win last week's Powerball?

Failed Past Purges, Stop Future Purges

John Boehner’s recent purge of conservatives Huelskamp, Amash, and Schweikert from prominent House Committees isn’t the first time honest Congressmen have been punished for fidelity to their constituents.

In 1995, Appropriations Chairman Bob Livingston, with the blessing of then-Speaker Newt Gingrich kicked Rep. Mark Neumann off the Appropriations Committee for voting against a leadership-sponsored bill.

This year, states used common measurements, making these comparisons possible.  "By using this new measure, states will be more honest in holding schools accountable and ensuring that students succeed," U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said in a statement Monday.
