    In light of that and the emphasis on competitiveness, STEM, and higher education in the speech, don’t be surprised if we see relatively more attention to higher education going forward—not surprising as we head towards an election year, when college affordability is typically seen as a bigger winner with middle-class voters than ed reform issues. video pool new music video

    The STOCK Act is a good start, but expecting elected officials to self-regulate might be wishful thinking. The STOCK Act was first proposed in 2006, and is only now being considered due to public outcry. online diary

    Though the bill was initially met with skepticism by members of Congress, it has since gained some popularity as lawmakers have begun to see its necessity, because it clarifies the vague language found in the current law.online diary
