House Amendment 1 to HR 2029 – Omnibus Spending Act: NO.  This is the 2,000-plus page $1.15 trillion spending act to fund the government through September 30, 2016.  A bill of this complexity always has good and bad provisions, and the question comes down to whether in balance it moves the government in the right direction.

House Amendment 2 to HR 2029 – Tax Extenders Act: YES.  Called the “Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act” this 233-page bill provides a complex list of changes to the tax code.  Once again, there is both good and bad.  

H.R. 22 – TEA 21 “The Highway Bill”: No.  The Highway Trust Fund – accent on the “Trust” – was a promise made to highway users that the gas taxes they paid at the pump would be used for highways. Period.  That promise was broken long ago and now shattered by this act.

S. 1177 - Every Student Succeeds Act (or the Bill Formerly Known as No Child Left Behind): YES.  George W. Bush’s “No Child Left Behind” has been a disaster.  Its stated goal was to bring every child to grade-level proficiency by 2014.  Instead, for the first time in 25 years student achievement is declining with just 33 percent of 8th graders proficient in math and 34 percent in reading.
