New York State is a bellwether for New Hampshire Democrats. It will, after all, be electing our president for us once the Left gets that Popular vote thing they are after. So, this story will be of interest. The New York State Assembly just approved 27 million in tuition aid for illegal aliens.
An effort to give Gold Star families more than 2.7 million was blocked.
“The Post-Standard reported that “the Assembly’s Higher Education Committee voted 15 to 11 on Tuesday to shelve the bill [to increase the amount of funds available for Gold Star families], effectively quashing its chances of going to the floor.”
The Committee Chair Deborah Glick said “any expansion of college tuition aid to Gold Star families was not within the state’s budget…”
If you recall, the latest New York State budget gives everyone in elected office record-setting raises. It also provides 100 million in taxpayer support for political campaigns in what is essentially a true-blue one-party state. But no money for the kids or family members of vets killed in the line of duty.
State Sen. Robert Ortt (R-Niagara) said “Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself. We set aside $27 million dollars for college for people that are here illegally… Apparently, $2.7 million is all that the families of soldiers who are killed, get. If you’re a child of a fallen soldier, you do not rank as high and you know that by the money.”
New York is doing what New Hampshire Democrats want for the Granite State. If they get a Democrat majority and Democrat governor, they’ll do it all so fast your head will spin. We’ll be just like New York. Regulations, Debt, and Taxes.
