  • Heritage in Focus Roundtable: DC Opportunity Scholarship Program, Budget, Gas Prices

    The budget battle has yet to be worked out. Does a government shutdown loom?

    Also, gas prices are on the rise. So why is President Obama proposing reductions of oil imports by one third?

    And, the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program was effectively ended by the left, but legislation to refund it is passing through Congress. One eighth-grade girl testifies before Congress on how this program has benefited her. Will this program survive Congress, and the president?

    Listen to our latest Heritage in Focus Roundtable, for answers to these questions and more.

      May those of intelligence ensure the opportunity scholarship program reignite and carry on for the sake of individual intelligence of our youth with the ability to reach their fullest potential at their pace and in freedom.

      GOP please remember both directly and indirectly, the dereliction of the democrat party has evolved this country into what it's become. Bankrupt, corrupt and everything that doesn't reflect freedom…

      The exact reason why this has to take place. They don't do their expected job (last Oct) and go beyond what they need to. Creating government programs of condescension.

      The democrat proposal is insignificant. Stand behind yours and don't give in! The consequences of the actions of democrats overreach into the invasion of individual freedom and independence continue to add enormous hardships and burdens to all.

      Their focus is "special interests" while threatening to remove the services vital to all. Police, firefighters etc. Democrat party doesn''t do their job without invading everyone's private life for democrat job security, overstepping with severe discrimination in favor of some but at the cost and without consideration to others has to stop! Government policies have to reflect business friendly, so we aren't held back by government regulations to work for a living! We shouldn't need government allowance to live free, nor should we be hindered by government to live free.

      We wouldn't be forced to take from our retirement WE INVESTED IN to cover the taxes laid on us unfairly just to maintain our independence! It is inevitable to shut the government down if democrats continue their conduct of dereliction and refuse to recognize the importance of this matter..

      The guilt is not the GOP's to feel!

      The status quo of this country used to be LAND OF THE FREE HOME OF THE BRAVE!!! Under democrat leadership, the new status quo is LAND OF THE NEEDY, HOME OF THE PATHETIC! Not America!

      In need of strong, principled leadership!!!!!!!

      Please take your role of heroism and rescue us, rescue America! The failure of democrats once again is the sole purpose of any shut down and all though not all of America knows, they will come to know the truth. Please don't give in!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
