Ted Cruz US Senator against Common CoreSen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said he was “emphatically opposed” to federal Common Core standards after he keynoted an event for Iowa’s influential homeschoolers in which he said that school choice “is the civil rights issue of the 21st century.”

“I don’t think the federal government has any role dictating the content of curricula. I think education is a state issue and a local issue, and ideally at the local level, because that way parents can have direct input and control of what’s being taught to their kids,” Cruz said on Tuesday after he addressed the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators, according to Radio Iowa’s O.

The War on Poverty After 50 Years
By Robert Rector and Rachel Sheffield

posted by Leave a Comment

Founded in 1973, The Heritage Foundation is a research and educational institution—a think tank—whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.Abstract In his January 1964 State of the Union address, President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed, “This administration today, here and now, declares unconditional war on poverty in America.” In the 50 years since that time, U.S. taxpayers have spent over $22 trillion on anti-poverty programs. Adjusted for inflation, this spending (which does not include Social Security or Medicare) is three times the cost of all U.S. military wars since the American Revolution. Yet progress against poverty, as measured by the U.S. Census Bureau, has been minimal, and in terms of President Johnson’s main goal of reducing the “causes” rather than the mere “consequences” of poverty, the War on Poverty has failed completely. In fact, a significant portion of the population is now less capable of self-sufficiency than it was when the War on Poverty began.

This week, the U.S. Census Bureau is scheduled to release its annual poverty report. The report will be notable because this year marks the 50th anniversary of the launch of President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty. In his January 1964 State of the Union address, Johnson proclaimed, “This administration today, here and now, declares unconditional war on poverty in America.”[1]

Since that time, U.S. taxpayers have spent over $22 trillion on anti-poverty programs (in constant 2012 dollars). Adjusted for inflation, this spending (which does not include Social Security or Medicare) is three times the cost of all military wars in U.S. history since the American Revolution. Despite this mountain of spending, progress against poverty, at least as measured by the government, has been minimal.

Congressman Jeff Duncan

Congressman Jeff Duncan You Are A Man We In SC AdmireOver the past few years, I’ve had numerous conversations with constituents regarding the direction of the country. Voters and Members of Congress alike are outraged by a President who acts as if he’s above the law, yet not enough is done to stop him.

What President Obama is doing through executive actions and new regulations is unprecedented. These actions deserve the strongest possible response from Congress. The historic 2014 elections created a new sense of optimism and, along with it, an opportunity for us to get our nation back on track while holding the President accountable. Americans sent a clear message: they are fed up with business as usual in Washington.
