Rep. Massie Introduces Bill to Abolish the Department of Education

by Just the News Staff


Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie announced on Tuesday the proposal of a bill that would officially abolish the U.S. Department of Education.

Massie made the announcement on Twitter on Tuesday morning. “I have introduced a bill to terminate the Department of Education,” he wrote. ”

“There is no Constitutional authority for this federal bureaucracy to exist,” he added.

The bill, with eight Republican co-sponsors in the House, is virtually doomed to fail, facing both a Democratic-controlled Senate and President Joe Biden’s veto power in the White House.

The DOE emerged in 1979 under the administration of Jimmy Carter, having been created by the congressional Department of Education Organization Act.
