McCain Fighting Mad Over Voucher Bill


With time running out on the 114th Congress Arizona Senator John McCain engaged in a prickly exchange with the co-chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs over a controversial school voucher program for American Indians.

McCain, a Republican, berated Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) for not caring about the shameful conditions at many of the Bureau of Indian Education schools.

Tester fired back that handing out vouchers so Native American students can use it toward costs for attending a school of their choice is the wrong solution to a serious problem.
