Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) keeps saying the country is “broke” – so Americans United for Separation of Church and State would like to know why he is determined to funnel $20 million in tax dollars to religious schools in Washington, D.C.
Boehner is attempting to railroad the reauthorization of a controversial school voucher “experiment” in D.C. through the House.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today approved H.R. 471 on a 21-14 vote. The Boehner-sponsored measure could go to a House floor vote as early as next week.
