Rand Paul Appointed to Senate Education Committee

United States Senate election in Kentucky, 2010Image via Wikipedia

Joan Carter, Daily  KOS, reports the following:
Last week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) released a “budget” outlining $500 billion in spending cuts that he believes can be implemented next year. Among the cuts is eliminating the entire Department of Education, except for the Pell Grant program, as Paul feels that “the mere existence of the Department of Education is an overreach of power by the federal government.”

So, naturally, Senate Republicans have seen fit to appoint Paul to the Senate Education Committee.
