NEA Praises Ron Paul -- Not April Fool's

April 1, 2011

It has the makings of an April Fool's joke.  The National Education Association's Education Insider newsletter for April 1st praises eight Republicans who voted against the DC school voucher program, including Congressman Ron Paul, aka Dr. "No".

Thanks to the tremendous efforts of NEA cyberlobbyists, we were able to keep the vote close and secure the votes of eight Republicans, who bucked their Party leadership to oppose the voucher bill – Representatives Biggert (IL), Dold (IL), Graves (MO), Griffith (VA), Johnson (IL), LoBiondo (NJ), Paul (TX), and Reichert (WA). [emphasis in original]

Yes, Paul (TX) is this Ron Paul and this one too.

 I scrolled all the way to the bottom of the newsletter expecting an "April Fool's" but there wasn't one.  If Ron Paul can bring the NEA around to his point of view on fiscal policy and government spending, he deserves some kind of award -- no fooling.
