When Obama first got into office, in 2009, one of his first acts was to cancel the D.C. school voucher program at the behest of the public school unions, as part of his (then) $1.6 TRILLION budget (3x Bush's $535 billion last yr budget). When Boehner became Speaker of the House in Jan 2011, one of his first acts was to use Congress to reinstate the successful D.C. school voucher program for (mostly) poor, black children and their parents who were being denied a choice to attend alternative private schools where their children would be in safe and productive learning environments. Obama continues looking for ways to KILL the D.C. school voucher program.
