Ed Martin tweeted the following today:The link went to a page calling on the Missouri Legislature to send back tens of millions of dollars in federal money for education in Missouri that had already been allocated. Senator Lembke has said the following about the federal education money:
"The state of Missouri should take a stand," said Lembke, R-St. Louis. "If the federal government's not going to live within their means, then we've got to show them how to do that."As pointed out by FiredUp, the idea of taking money from children to try to score cheap political points is nuts. But I guess nothing Ed Martin does surprises me anymore.
