Washington D.C. (KELO AM) - Senators John Thune (R-S.D.) and Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Ranking Member of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, were joined today by several of their Republican Senate colleagues in sending a letter to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan questioning the Department of Education’s involvement in implementing ObamaCare.

The senators write: “While we understand that the effects of the President’s health care law will be felt by parents, teachers, and their families, we are unfamiliar with how the Department of Education’s involvement in implementation will further the mission of educating our nation’s students.”

This is one of many agencies outside of the Departments of Health and Human Services and Treasury that, according to recent news reports, intend to promote ObamaCare, an effort outside their missions.
