Robert Gibbs insinuated today that President Obama will reverse a provision in the omnibus spending bill to terminate school vouchers for underprivileged students in Washington, D.C.. The program allows about 1,700 mostly low-income and minority students to attend private schools as an alterative to the struggling D.C. public school system. When asked if President Obama plans to restore the program’s funding in his full budget, which is currently being drafted, Gibbs said, “whether it's in the budget or in the -- the appropriations process,” the administration will work to make sure “that disruption doesn't take place.”
I'm am elated that I finally have a "warm and fuzzy" feeling towards PSBO (ok, well that was an exaggeration). I think it's great that he reversed that decision! Yeah, PSBO. For today you are a BarackStar!
