Obama Approves Billions for Teachers, Cops in Cash-Strapped States

Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, countered, "We're coming back because it makes no sense from a jobs perspective, and it makes no sense from the perspective of our children's education, to have an insufficient number of teachers in the classroom. I mean, it's as simple as that."

Nothing less than control of the House is at stake in the November election. All 435 House seats are up for grabs with Republicans needing to gain 39 in order to take back the majority.

If Democrats can convince voters that their economic recovery plans are working, they could have a good shot at keeping control on Capitol Hill. Republicans meanwhile hope voters will see the Democrats' economic policies as failed and dangerously adding trillions in red ink to the nation's tab, signaling a time for change.
