The democrats are always preaching how they are the party of compassion and tolerance. However, their brand of compassion often costs the taxpayers more than they bargained for. See, democrats are all for helping those less fortunate as long as they are not footing the bill, right? Well, we just found another democrat doing just that and it will piss you off when you find out who.
The crisis in California just gets worse as the days go by, and Governor Jerry Brown is seemingly oblivious to it all. While the state is an economic free fall, Brown is determined to speed that process up.
Just recently we have seen the devastating consequences of Brown’s decisions when it comes to illegals. For instance, Brown was more than happy to dump $25 billion into illegal immigrant programs rather than fix the Oroville dam that forced 200,000 people from their homes. Now, Brown has signed another bill, and of course, it is not geared to help American citizens at all.
In a recent bill, Brown has decided to cut funding to middle-class students enrolled in college but has increased the funding for illegal immigrant students. Yep, you read that right.
The 2017-18 Governor’s Budget detailed Brown’s intention of phasing out the middle-class Scholarship program, which assists students who come from households with a combined income of $156,000 or less with 40 percent of their tuition costs.
“Given the state’s overall financial condition, to continue the Administration’s support for long-term stable growth in funding…and to maintain the broad Cal Grant entitlement for the state’s neediest students, the Budget proposes a phase-out of the Middle-Class Scholarship Program,”
What this boils down to is that Brown is not going to help American citizens who need this program, but he willing to increase the money spent on scholarships for illegal immigrants. While ending this scholarship program will save the state about $115 million a year by 2021, it really doesn’t matter.
If Brown continues to increase the amount of scholarship funding to illegal immigrants under the DREAM Act it really won’t matter. California is facing an economic ruin, but Brown just keeps on throwing money at illegals.
It is obvious that Brown rather help illegals than his own citizens, and if that does not tick you off, I do not know what will.
