DescriptionCongressman Ray LaHood wants the Page Program eliminated.

LaHood said the scandal involving former Congressman Mark Foley sending sexually explicit emails to Pages, proves it's not a good idea to bring young teenagers to Washington D.C.

"We need to look at the idea of bringing 15- and 16-year-old children to Washington D.C., exposing them to adults who they look up to and admire and these people turn out to be flawed people with flawed personalities," said LaHood.
