Obama budget rebuilds economy

Our president’s top priority in his 2013 budget proposal is to boost the middle class and promote economic fairness. He maintains that high-quality education is critical to rebuilding our economy. Strengthening America’s workforce requires that we invest in education.

Highlights of President Barack Obama’s budget:

The Republicans’ (tea party) priorities are to cut teachers, eliminate collective bargaining and unions, eliminate tenure for teachers and eliminate Head Start, among other cuts.

Billionaires can hire private teachers or send their children to private schools, so they don’t care.

Why would the tea party want to make these cuts to the middle class and yet will not pay their fair share of taxes?
