this year, for the first time, we are in all 50 states. and the program just continues to expand enormously and have great influence. it has won the simon award, which is only given to one or institution. it also won the ronald mcdonald house award. the key is that many educators have told us that when we put a scholar in their classroom, the gpa of the whole class can go up significantly. instead of focusing on the quarterback and the rustler, they're focusing on the smart kid who is responsible for this trophy that is out there with all the other sports trophies. the kid gets to wear a medal and me incredible people. he gets local press attention. we get to celebrate academic achievement, which is so important if our nation is to remain a pinnacle nation. >> that is one of the things you said when you started this organization. you saw that the athlete had
this eutrophy. the smart kid did not. >> i have nothing against athletes. there are some states like pennsylvania, indiana, where their professional football team is the biggest sponsor of our scholars. we have to get the ravens involved one of these days. it is something that is not, you know, and the medical. sports entertainment, academic achievement, they should work together. we have a mission. the creators of our nation said that we have to have a very educated populace in order to take advantage of the kind of democracy that we have. we need to emphasize that. the other thing is the reading rooms. we need to focus on title one schools because a lot of those kids come from homes with no books. they go to school with no library. they will not leave readers. those are the people who drop out.
we have to concentrate on that. that is what is all about. we're having our big banquet in two weeks. we have three banquets next week. michigan, alan i., and pennsylvania. the week after that, we have our big one here. there are still tickets available at $85. it is always sold out to get in there quickly. it is one of the inspirational things. >> before you go, we will remind them again. i want to talk about "america the beautiful." you authored that with your wife. >> your wife is quick to mention is the only book that we have ever written together that got on the new york times best- seller.

mchenry and we have no idea that it was dumbarton of the british a fort mchenry that we would -- and we withstood that. our soldiers stood there all night holding the flag. that was the turning point of the war of 1812. we want to remind people of the kind of tenacity and the bravery and a can-do spirit that created the most powerful nation in the world. >> he would say there are some many things distracting people today. they are not paying attention to the most important thing. >> unfortunately, we are not. we are so easily distracted. you know, i hate to say it, but you got there on the street and you will find people who know a lot more about the kardashians than about current events and our history, things that are important. there is a time when everybody knew that you do not buy a house that cost more than 2.5 times annual income. when did that information get lost?
people are easily fooled into buying houses and we are in the credit default swap and all of this crazy stuff that can easily be eradicated. >> you also talk about making sure that we care about our -- those who do not have as much as we may have. we are seeing more and more haves and have-nots. the president wants congress to embrace people who have more money give more back. what do you think about that? >> one of the things i talked about in the book was texas. i said, i am all for fear taxes. let us look at -- fair taxes. let us look to the most fair person. that is god. he said, i want a tie. he did not say if you have come and give me trouble. he did not say if your crops fail, you do not know me anything. there is something fair about
proportionality. $10 billion, pay $1 million. $1 -- $10, pay $1. people say it does not hurt the guy who paid $1 billion. that is the kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the cayman islands. we need to be fair to everybody and everything will work. >> everybody needs to be fair. thank you for coming in. we want to remind everybody, www.carsonscholars.com and " america the beautiful." if you have a question, you can send it in to sundayquestions @wbaltv.com. here is nbc with what is coming up on "meet the press."

>> this is a wbal editorial. >> there is no confetti or joy as the maryland general assembly came to a close with little fanfare. rightfully so. instead, this year's session did not accomplish its most important goal. a balanced budget. political jockeying continued until the last minute by legislators failed to reach a compromise on a balance spending plan by the midnight deadline. as a result, marylanders now and up with a so-called doomsday budget. $500 million in cuts, no one really wants that. this budget eliminates 500 state jobs and requires employers to pay higher health insurance premium and not the cost of living increases. there is an 8% cut in agency
spending and local law- enforcement grants would be eliminated. higher education and college funding would be reduced by 10%. what did get done in annapolis? the legislature passed a bill doubling the flesh tax from $30 to $60 a year to pay for upgrades for waste water treatment plants. they approved for a more for the health-insurance marketplace so individuals and small businesses can purchase coverage. maryland became the eighth state to legalize same-sex marriage. as for the budget, it will take a special session to rework the plan. aides to the governor insists he wants an agreement before calling the legislature back to work. we agreed. it will cost taxpayers $21,000 a day to bring the same 180 legislators back who cannot get the job done in 90 days. this not reduce the deficit. there is proven washington. marylanders need to other lawmakers will get the job done. for more of this general assembly session, we invite you to log on to wbaltv.com and
