State of the Union, Follow-Up Actions

So, after hearing the State Of The Union last night, I was looking forward to the next steps as far as getting the education system back in growth mode as it relates to math and sciences. Maybe, restoring some of the National Science Foundation budget that the Republican congress yanked out. Maybe boosting student loan subsidies.

But, I guess that's largely wishful thinking. Today, the Congress, in a largely bipartisan vote, cuts student loan subsidies. According to the article, President Bush is “eager to sign the bill.”
