    Republican Jewish Coalition withdraws support from four House GOP members over Holocaust museum funding

    A Trump-allied Jewish political coalition has withdrawn its support from four incumbent Republican House members after they voted against a bill to authorize $10 million in federal funding to expand Holocaust education programming and resource dissemination by the Holocaust Memorial Museum.

    The bill, which funds spending by the Department or Education, would also expand professional development opportunities for teachers.

    Reps. Ralph Norman of South Carolina and Jodey Arrington of Texas voted against the bill, the Never Again Education Act, on the grounds that the federal government should not mandate education policy within states. Republican Reps. Tom Rice, also of South Carolina, and Thomas Massie of Kentucky also voted against the legislation. Former Republican and now independent Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan was the only other House member to vote down the bill.

    "The bill authorizes $10 million in spending for the Department of Education, a department that I’ve introduced legislation to eliminate [H.R. 899]," Massie told the Jewish News Syndicate. "Furthermore, the bill directs money to develop content for the website of the privately funded Holocaust museum. The surest way to ruin a private website is to let the federal government work on it."
    ...
    "The federal government funds the Holocaust Memorial Museum and Holocaust Memorial Council to the tune of over $50 million a year," Rice said in a statement published by the Jewish News Syndicate. "Since its creation in 1993, the Holocaust Memorial Museum has effectively educated people of all ages while also preserving millions of artifacts and providing teacher fellows in every U.S. state. I could not support adding to our deficit to fund another duplicative federal program."

    In a statement on Wednesday, Norman cited the "federal government and its lack of fiscal restraint" in his decision.

    Now you know why there are so few fiscal conservatives. Government handouts are popular.
