CLYBURN SAYS HE SUPPORTS EDUCATION TAX CREDITS
FITSNews – November 29, 2007 – Democratic Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, who up to this point in his political career hasn’t recognized good ideas even when they bit him square on the ass, shocked the hell out of us in a fundraising e-mail earlier this month by saying he supports “tax credits for middle class families.” Surely he didn’t mean education tax credits, we thought, because everybody knows those have been branded as the Great Satan by all of Clyburn’s buddies in the education establishment.
The reference was included in a fundraising e-mail supporting the Democrats for Education Reform, and every other reference in the message was about education, but seriously, this had to be a typo …. Jim Clyburn? Supporting something that makes this much sense?
We checked it out with Clyburn’s peeps and were shocked to hear that the Congressman “specifically endorsed education tax credits at the event.”
Unfortunately, at that point we felt a tightness in our chests and had to discontinue the interview … we’re better now, but sadly no more Hardee’s hash rounds in the morning for us.
UDPATE – Check out this article from Matthew Ladner over at the Goldwater Institute for more on what Clyburn’s declaration means. And when you’re done with that, check out the group’s president, Darcy Olsen. Aye Cabana Boy, people!
