This is Socialism, we can't accept this poison money from Nobama.

Us Republicans believe in keeping down the deficit and state's rights.

This is the same as welfare. We have to tell them "No, we don't want it."

This is NOT socialism; nor is it welfare. Education in America is primarily a State and local responsibility. This 'poison money,' has been awarded to States and localities by the Federal government beginning in 1785--predating the U.S. Constitution. The appropriations, part of the budget process, are approved by CONGRESS. Us DEMOCRATS and you REPUBLICANS (bi-partisan) have historically accepted such grants and funding as a means of furthering public education in this country for over 200 years.

Is it free or does Greeneville have to pay it back?

Not 'free,' exactly. U.S. taxpayer money pays for the grants to begin with. Most do NOT have be repaid UNLESS the $ are not used at all within a cited period of time, or, the $ are not spent for the purpose the grant was originally applied for

Nothing is free. Somebody, somewhere has to pay.

I figured it was just another scam to get money, then say we going have to raise taxes to pay it back.

Correct. We, the American taxpayers, have already 'paid;' our taxes; the Federal government disburses those monies--some in the form of educational grants and funding.

Why Greeneville schools and not Greene County schools?

Educated GUESS that Greeneville Schools applied separately for the grant; alternative GUESS that the $876g's is the city's share of some large Greene County grant. Just guessing.

U.S taxpayers from other states have to foot the bill for the poor, poor appalachian folks. So..quit bitching about the federal government. For every dollar that Tn pays into federal income taxes they get 1.75 back. It's the yankee tax payers that are paying for your children!!
