RNC Chairman Reince Priebus explains how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid continues to refuse to take action on bipartisan will that would support charter schools. Review Journal,
“This legislation passed the House of Representatives easily — and for good reason. In the United States Senate, though, it’s Harry Reid’s way or no way at all, and he won’t bring the bill up for a vote.
It’s hard to understand why Sen. Reid would stand in the way of expanding charter schools and school choice. If he actually cares about our kids, why wouldn’t he want to help them? If he’s actually concerned about the Hispanic community, why wouldn’t he work to improve education, which Hispanic voters consistently rank as their No. 1 issue?
Perhaps it’s because these types of initiatives are so often opposed by special interests, such as teachers unions. And teachers unions are just the sort of special interests that Harry Reid needs support from if he wants to remain majority leader.”
