I wish the title of this blog were a joke. But there’s no joke about it.
From Sean Walton’s article in dcdirtylaundry.com:
New York State lawmakers on Tuesday refused to advance a bill that would have provided free college tuition to the families of military personnel from the state who were killed in the line of duty.
The Assembly’s Higher Education Committee voted 15 to 11 to hold the bipartisan bill, effectively ending its chances of making it to a floor vote this session.
The move comes a week after lawmakers passed a $175 billion state budget that included $27 million to provide college tuition aid for undocumented immigrants.
Yes, you read that right. The Democrat-dominated New York State Assembly Higher Education Committe – 19 Democrats to 7 Republicans – voted to stiff the children of our fallen military out of even one cent of college tuition….but overall assembly (106 Democrats to 43 Republicans) had no problem voting $27 million in tuition for children of “undocumented immigrants” – i.e. illegal aliens who have no right to be here.
And the fact that, in the days since these votes took place, there has not been even one peep out of the national Democrat Party, should tell you a great deal – maybe more than you wish you knew – about how far the party has descended.
