A large California teachers union and its national affiliate are forcing nonunion teachers to pay for political activism, according to a disclosure form acquired by The Daily Signal.

Under a category called “human rights,” both the National Education Association and the California Teachers Association require nonunion teachers to finance LGBT leadership training and other political goals that may run counter to the teachers’ convictions, The Daily Signal’s analysis of the disclosure form shows.

The form shows that unions charged $1.1 million in “human rights” costs to nonunion teachers

Hillary’s rumored running mate, Housing Secretary Julian Castro, is cooking up a scheme to reallocate funding for Section 8 housing to punish suburbs for being too white and too wealthy.

The scheme involves super-sizing vouchers to help urban poor afford higher rents in pricey areas, such as Westchester County, while assigning them government real-estate agents called “mobility counselors” to secure housing in the exurbs.

Castro plans to launch the Section 8 reboot this fall, even though a similar program tested a few years ago in

In an ideal world the federal government would collect all of the taxes that it was owed—and then spend only what it intended to. Unfortunately, things aren’t that simple.

The tax gap and improper payments serve as reminders that the

Hello,

Ron Boltz will be CEPTA’s Guest on Tuesday evening.

Ron Boltz meets with citizens on 76

Ron Boltz, Vice President of the Pennsylvania Liberty Alliance and a Pine Grove School Board member, will be the guest speaker at the May 17th CEPTA meeting. The meeting is held at the Emmaus Fire Hall, Sixth and Broad Streets in Emmaus at 7:30 pm.

Mr. Boltz will be speaking on the benefits of SB/HB 76-the School Real Estate Tax Elimination Act and the political activism needed to get this bill passed.

Commonwealth Foundation -Action Alert

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

In a crucial victory for both students and teachers, the Protecting Excellent Teachers Act passed the Senate yesterday with a vote of 26 to 22.

HB 805, championed by Rep. Stephen Bloom, provides that public school teachers are retained based on effectiveness in the classroom—not merely seniority—in the unfortunate event of furloughs. A seniority-based system punishes young, effective teachers who excel in the classroom but have not racked up sufficient service time. This is unfair. HB 805 ensures our best teachers remain in the classroom, helping every child reach their maximum potential.

The legislation now moves to Gov. Wolf, whose options are clear: Side with the teachers’ unions which oppose the bill or

Republicans arrived in Washington this year promising a return to “regular order” in Congress. It was a hallmark of Paul Ryan’s quest to be House speaker and Mitch McConnell’s way of showing that the Senate could get things done.

Gone were the days of omnibus spending bills and continuing resolutions—or the dreaded combination of the two, known as a CRomnibus. In their place would be a

Flush with Cash: US Government Collects Record Taxes in 2015

By at Mises.org

With April 15 come and gone, let’s have a look at how well the Federal government has been doing for itself in recent years.

It turns out things have been going quite well. In 2015, Federal receipts (well over 90 percent of which comes from taxes) hit an all time high of 3.2 trillion in 2009 dollars. In real terms, that’s the highest level ever reached.

Naturally, revenues dropped, when measured year over year, from 2008 to 2009 due to the recession at the time. However, revenue began to quickly grow again, and has now rebounded well above what it was at the end of
