The American people went to the polls in massive numbers to vote in Republican congressional candidates over the last few elections — but it was all for nothing, the GOP's latest betrayal of the Constitution and its constituents showed. As if to rub it in, Obama's Education secretary, Arne Duncan, has been gloating about how the administration literally conspired with Republican leadership to pass a 1,061-page education bill that for the first time codifies Obama's radical education agenda — including the almost universally loathed Common Core standards and much more — into federal “law.”

GOP leadership and establishment Republicans in Congress stabbed their constituents in the back to ensure the success of Obama's radical “education” agenda and codify it into federal “law,” all while deceiving the public about what the legislation does. Now, Obama administration Education Secretary Arne Duncan is even boasting in public about the GOP betrayal that one Democrat lawmaker celebrated as a “miracle.” Obama called the bill a “Christmas miracle” before signing it. While it may be a miracle to Big Government and Obama's agenda to further federalize and dumb down American children via government schools, the massive bill, known as Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), represents a disaster for real education, children, parents, liberty, and the U.S. Constitution.
