Knollenberg Votes to Slash Funding for Higher Education
Knollenberg claims that he is a "strong supporter of efforts to make college more affordable for students and their parents." But when it comes time to vote on those issues, Knollenberg's votes are AGAINST middle-class families.
But in fact, just the opposite is true. Knollenberg voted to CUT Federal Student aid by $12.7 billion -- the biggest cut in history! [S 1932 , Vote #670, 12/19/2005]
Knollenberg Votes To Slash Funding for Primary Education
Joe Knollenberg also consistently votes to slash funding for primary school education too. He voted to cut $784 Million out of the No Child Left Behind program. [HR 3010, Vote #598, 11/17/2005]
Does Joe Knollenberg Ever Tell The Truth, or is it Just All Spin To Him?
The only true statement I could find on his website was:
Raising the bar on public education is one of Congressman Knollenberg’s
He is "raising the bar" alright. He has raised the bar on the door and if he keeps going he is going to lock that door. And on the other side of that door are the middle-class families in Oakland County. The ones who are trying to help out their kids by saving for their college education but a few years of college now costs more than most families earn in a year.
Once again, Joe Knollenberg's positions are hurting middle-class families.
