Burqa for School Vouchers

In yet another veiled attempt to abandon our neighborhood schools, Gov. Perdue Perdue is again pressing forward legislation (HR 1345) proposing a constitutional amendment to make sure that the state does not "discriminate" against faith-based groups in funding.

Translation: School Vouchers.

Undaunted by the failure to move this legislation forward last year, the Perdue Team is again trying put this on the ballot in November. The anti-discrimination language in this resolution is nothing more than a burqa for the real agenda: robbing the coffers of public education in Georgia in order to fund school vouchers.

They have the House. They have the Senate. They have the Governor's office, and they have stripped the Lt. Governor of power. If they clearly want school vouchers, so why don't they just say so? Why bother pretending to support public education?

The only silver lining here is that 20 House Democrats would have to vote with the majority to put this on the ballot this November. Call your reps today, and tell them to vote NO on HR 1345.
