    Oh ya--lets become dependent on money received because of illegal aliens.

    Great solution, Rick.

    An indirect benefit of Richardson/Napolitano’s public catharsis might be to give courage to notorious Republican immigration wafflers Texas Governor Rick Perry and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. They too are up for re-election in 2006. Both did well among Latino voters in their last elections. Hence, both tiptoe around illegal immigration.

    Additional Govt aiding and abetting.

    Perry's working REALLY hard at not being reelected. I'd say he's doing a good job of it too.

    Is any Governor in Texas wise to take into account the Latino vote in Texas? If so, then wouldn't Perry taking that into account be simple good politics? - (forgetting the issue of good policy for a moment)

    The political atmosphere here is like this: You BETTER take into account the Hispanic vote. They can make you or break you here. Part of Bush's problem. He's still catering to the Hispanic crowd as if he was still running for governor here.

    However, this Bill is just a shell game. Robbing Peter to pay Paul. Right in line with the Clinton "sin taxes" of the early 90s. Price luxury items right off the market in some lame attempt to fund schooling. We already have one of the most archaic and unfair school systems in the US.

    Taxpayers in each district pay school taxes for THAT district. Meaning wealthy schools get all the goodies while poorer schools that need more, get less. I'm paying out the gazoo in school taxes just so my daughter could go to one of the best schools in the city. She's graduated and gone, but I STILL get the bill.
