    • On January 06, 2011, by Trina7 - I oppose this bill strongly. I homeschool my 8 children. I do not want any 'favors' from the government, for when the government gives it also takes. Giving a 'tax break' will only mean more regulation. In order to get the tax break one will have to have an approved curriculum and most likely testing. Just because Ron Paul suggested it doesn't make it a good idea!
