    Rep. Massie Introduces Bill to Abolish Federal Department of Education


    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representative Thomas Massie announces that he has introduced H.R. 899, a bill to abolish the federal Department of Education. The bill, which is one sentence long, states, “The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2022.”


    "Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. should not be in charge of our children’s intellectual and moral development," said Massie. "States and local communities are best positioned to shape curricula that meet the needs of their students. Schools should be accountable. Parents have the right to choose the most appropriate educational opportunity for their children, including home school, public school, or private school."


    The Department of Education began operating in 1980. On September 24, 1981, in his Address to the Nation on the Program for Economic Recovery, President Ronald Reagan said, “As a third step, we propose to dismantle two Cabinet Departments, Energy and Education. Both Secretaries are wholly in accord with this. Some of the activities in both of these departments will, of course, be continued either independently or in other areas of government. There's only one way to shrink the size and cost of big government, and that is by eliminating agencies that are not needed and are getting in the way of a solution. Now, we don't need an Energy Department to solve our basic energy problem. As long as we let the forces of the marketplace work without undue interference, the ingenuity of consumers, business, producers, and inventors will do that for us. Similarly, education is the principal responsibility of local school systems, teachers, parents, citizen boards, and State governments. By eliminating the Department of Education less than 2 years after it was created, we cannot only reduce the budget but ensure that local needs and preferences, rather than the wishes of Washington, determine the education of our children.”


    Original co-sponsors include Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN), Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA), Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC), and Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX).

    Why? Democrats run DC. It will go nowhere. I agree with him but it's pointless.

    Maybe it can be presented again with a more favorable Congress in the future if it goes nowhere now.

    If I have any pull with the universe at all, I wish nothing but the very best for Mr Massie and his loved ones.

    LMAO
    When gop had majority in both houses and trump was in the wh (
    January 3, 2015 – January 3, 2017 )
    Massie did nothing.
    He introduced this bill for the first time in february 2018 when dems had majority in house. It was dead on arrival.
    And now when dems have total control of fed gov Massie suddenly wants to abolish DoE again.
    Funny how he didn't want to abolish DoE when GOP had total control of fed gov.

    You are truly a dumbass. Trump won the 2016 election, which means he took his seat on Jan 20th, 2017. This was literally the first bill Massie introduced once Trump was inaugurated and the GOP controlled both houses.

    It is not very likely that The People or congress will embrace the ideas of smaller government when they aren't faced with repeated examples and opportunities of said concepts.

    With the way things are going right now we won't have a more favorable Congress.

    What kind of hateful person who hates children would want to get rid of the Department of Education.

    My guess is he's probably an anarchist / terrorist.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    I also noticed Ligant's paid trolling. I haven't had the time to check it out, but I wonder if he's Influenza, the paid troll who was banned.
