' One provision ADDED TO the bill is both shockingly narrow in its target and amazingly corrupt in its intent. The narrowness of this tax loophole shows the lengths to which the GOP will go to get their “wealth transfer to billionaires”  passed. 'P. 289 has a provision by Sen. Toomey to create an exemption from the university endowment tax — the exemption appears to apply only to Hillsdale, a conservative college the DeVos family supports. The bill would apply to any university that forgoes Title IV funding -- the program that offers federal financial aid to students. The acceptance of Title IV funds requires the universities to follow a set of government regulations that include things like banning discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and rules for how to respond to allegations of sexual assault.'

There are so many amendments in this bill that will hurt our Public education system, but the worst outcome is that with no money coming in to pay for the budget, thanks to the windfall for the corporations, the states will be on austerity budgets, and the first thing they cut, is for public education .

Provisions like this one were put in behind closed doors; Sahil Kapur, the national political reporter for Bloomberg News, found one provision in the bill that is both shockingly narrow in its target and amazingly corrupt in its intent.

"The narrowness of the tax loophole shows the lengths to which the GOP will go to get their "wealth transfer to billionaires" passed. P. 289 has a provision by Sen. Toomey to create an exemption from the university endowment tax -- the exemption appears to apply only to Hillsdale, a conservative college the DeVos family supports."

"The bill would apply to any university that forgoes Title IV funding -- the program that offers federal financial aid to students. The acceptance of Title IV funds requires the universities to follow a set of government regulations that include things like banning discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and rules for how to respond to allegations of sexual assault."

The hidden attack on the schools will end everything. AsE.D Hirsch says , there is no democracy without shared knowledge.

The GOP wants to destroy what we know about our CONSTITUTION, and its separation of 'church and state'.

I found this quote today, in an article about a country which is in the process of destroying one of its minorities. "The destruction of the distinction between truth and falsehood is the foundation of dictatorship."

Oddly enough this appeared in an article about Myanmar, where Emma Larkin speaks to a historian, Tin Tin Lay, who says:

"There is no history in Burma any more. You can look in the school books and the libraries. You will not find it. We are a country without a history -- without a truthful history."

There will be no history here, if the oligarchs continue to control the Congress and creates the conditions for the destructions of the schools.
