As most of you are aware Congress is not very big on reading as they have already admitted to not reading most of the bills they vote on.

What you might not be aware of is that the Reading is Fundamental Program will be one of the first programs cut with the proposed reductions in the budget.

So one of the few programs that actually tries to address the illiteracy problem in America by supplying millions of books to millions of children will go but we will continue to give billions in rebates to oil companies as they continue to rip us off at the pumps.

I guess Congress is afraid of getting voted out if they educate the masses and is hedging their bets through their big business lobbyists just in case they do.

Just goes to prove who they really represent.

When it comes to Congress reading isn't fundamental as it is very difficult to read when you are in the pockets of big business.
