Republicans huddled at the Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Va., last week. The Congressional Institute, a nonprofit that pays for activities at least in part through dues from lobbyists, subsidizes the GOP retreat. Republicans also allow members of the institute’s private sector advisory board, many of whom are lobbyists, to travel to the resort each year for a dinner with the members.

Democrats don’t allow lobbyists at the retreat, but Republicans criticize the use of taxpayer dollars for expenses for retreats at resorts, especially during the economic downturn.

Yes, the Republican way is much better.

So you think that church and state should be much more integrated than they currently are? Oh yeah, that's brilliant.

Critics say that could include public schools that permit religious groups to meet on campus. The House provided $20 billion for the infrastructure improvements, of which $6 billion would go to higher education facilities where the limitations would be applied.

you're right, and like i said, that's because there is nothing in the constitution that prohibits it. it would be illegal. however government sticking their nose in religion is prohibited, so if you'd like public school to participate, you can either try to change the constitution or move to a theocratic country.

According to the bill, which the Democratic-controlled House passed despite unanimous Republican opposition, funds are prohibited from being used for the "modernization, renovation, or repair" of facilities that allow "sectarian instruction, religious worship or a school or department of divinity."

I read this as saying that it isn't school sponsored or employed, it is just that students choose to have some sort of religous or faith activities. If this is the case then if at any school any time a time of worship of some sort begins does that school lose federal funding.
