    The Spendocrats in office right now are attempting to tie the "DREAM Act" as an amendment to the Defense Authorization bill, and will be voting on it tomorrow, Tuesday, September 21 at or around 2:00.

    In a nutshell, the DREAM Act will allow the federal government to - again - force the American taxpayers to pony up more money we don't have in order to pay for their ideological pursuits. The DREAM Act will increase the cost of higher education for every state, but especially those with large illegal immigrant populations.

    *
    Our states are flat broke and need to reform their budgets, not spend more
    *
    It forces states to give taxpayer funded financial aid to illegal immigrants
    *
    It forces states to allows illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition
    *
    These provisions can be utilized by illegal immigrants until the age of 35
    *
    There is ZERO accountability in place to track the money and costs
    *
    There is no scoring from the Congressional Budget Office
    *
    There is no estimate of the cost to the American taxpayer for the cost of the education and military benefits, or the cost of the fast track to citizenship also mandated in the bill
    *
    Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and President Obama have not passed a BUDGET for FY2011 which starts in October and they want to spend more without any thought about how much this will cost you and me!

    From a lawmaker in California (the state with a $19 Billion shortfall!) on the potential costs: "We're spending roughly a billion dollars annually for financial aid now, so every one percent increase in that spending would translate to an additional $10 Million from the general fund."

    Fight back against wasteful, ideological spending that violates all of our principles: fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets.

    I guess this boards full of kool-aid drinkers and you just don't give a damn.

    Yeah, we didn't respond to your thread so that means we don't care about the subject. Strong logic.

    DREAM Act is little more than amnesty disguised as education reform

    Its a disgrace for Harry Ried to attach it onto a defense policy bill..... They (the Dems) have no shame whatsoever!
    Also attached to the defense bill is a measure to repeal the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy barring gays from openly serving in the armed forces.

    Why cant they just put these out there as bills themselves instead of being sneaky snakes?

    I hope our military voters are watching.

    We were watching dancing with the stars.


    As if you didn't know it by now, illegals have more rights than taxpaying American citizens. I don't know when that happened but happen it did.
