What We're Reading | April 6, 2012

April 6, 2012 by George W. Bush Presidential Center

A Guide To An Evenutal Budget Deal: As the federal government approaches what is referred to as the “triple witching hour”, Litan outlines the four principles that should guide any kind of forthcoming budget deal: spending cuts, additional revenue (gained by closing loopholes, not raising marginal rates), subjecting only future beneficiaries to entitlement program changes, and the acceptance from policy makers that any form of budget deal will not be a permanent solution to our fiscal woes. (Forbes, Robert E. Litan) Bushes Congratulate Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Aung San Suu Kyi, on Electoral Success in Myanmar:  Mrs. Bush praised long time freedom advocate and Nobel Laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi, for her political party’s success in recent weeks.  Burma’s opposition party’s victory marks a significant milestone in the nation’s history “which is emerging from a ruthless era of military rule”. (Dallas Morning News, Tom Benning) Building on the Values of No Child Left Behind: In the wake of last week’s annual legislative conference of the Council of Chief State School Officers, the topic of conversation in the realm of education continues to be No Child Left Behind.  Recognizing that NCLB could be tweaked and improved upon, “it's vital for students and the future of this country that the core principles of accountability, transparency and equality be preserved.” (Huff Post Education, Eric Smith)
