    Filed at 4:49 pm under by dcobranchi

    NHELD is up in arms over a bill introduced by Republican Senator David Vitter that would allow a federal deduction for home education expenses of up to $500 per HEK and $2000 per taxpayer. (Would this mean $1000/$4000 for a married couple filing jointly?) NHELD asks:

    What do you think about this bill, and what will you do about it?

    Not much and nothing. It’s a Republican bill that rewards what is widely considered to be a Republican constituency. This one will never see the light of day.

    Move along. Move along. [via Toni]

    No kidding — and wouldn’t it be great if they stopped sending this alarmist nonsense around like spam with a big, important name suggesting national defense, to perfectly lovely apolitical homeschool moms in my area who twitter and dither and endlessly forward it to each other and all the lists asking whatever could it mean, is the sjy falling?

    NHELD and its ilk don’t seem to have any mode other than “up in arms.”

    It must be tiring.

    I don’t appreciate homeschooling being linked to Senator Vitter. Yeah, THAT Senator Vitter, as in DC Madam client list.
