Liberals Commit Armed Robbery Everyday. It’s About to Get Worse.

Armed Robbery

I’m not a cold-hearted person, but enough is enough!

So far, 17 states offer illegal immigrants in-state tuition rates. 10 of those states pay all or almost all of college costs for illegal immigrants who come from families earning a middle class or low-wage income. And that number is about to balloon with Democrat gains in state legislatures across America.

No matter what justification you use, the reality is that those programs take money from American kids who may well lose the chance to become successful. In short, liberals have this moronic belief that illegal kids are more important than American kids … in America!

News-flash. You know how many foreign countries offer American kids who are there illegally free, or almost free, college tuition? None, that’s how many. Nor, in my estimation, should they. So if we don’t blame them for giving special tuition breaks to Americans in their country illegally, why should we provide free or discounted tuition to people in our country illegally?

Here’s another thing.

How crazy is it that illegal immigrants who do NOT pay taxes, can qualify for a tax refund? How can that possibly be and whose brilliant idea was it to do this? Oh, that’s right, Barack Obama. Gee, thanks! But liberals could at least be honest enough to call it what it is. Tax refund? Get real. It’s welfare plain and simple.

Every week Americans get a pay stub showing how much of their pay was withheld for state and federal taxes. Can you blame them for being upset that well over $100 billion goes each year to support people in our country illegally? (That’s 100 with 9 zeroes behind it!)

That money goes to pay for free or subsidized housing, food stamps, education, transportation, welfare, and a host of other things. How do we as a country justify giving such an enormous amount of money to people here illegally? Where is the rationale? And why in the world do we keep electing corrupt politicians who believe our money belongs to them for whatever purpose they care to use it?

And now two of the most liberal areas in the nation (California and New York City,) have decided that their state’s tax payers should also provide state-funded medical insurance for illegal immigrants.

In New York City, the socialist mayor claims it will “only” cost $100 million more dollars. He says, “no new taxes.” Really? Expect the mayor to announce shortly he has a local bridge he’s trying to unload.

Having watched these liberals say such things for a long time now, I’ll lay you odds this is just part of the never-ending shell game they play. It works like this:

1) get the taxpayers to go along by promising it won’t cause higher taxes;

2) a few months or a year from now, come out with a report that says illegals are getting substandard healthcare because doctors won’t accept the new insurance;

3) increase the costs of the program to assure illegals get “fair” access to health care;

4) raise taxes to pay for the new, improved, and much more expensive, health care program. Oops, there goes taxes — up, up and away.

Likewise in California, they say the cost will be “at least” $1 trillion over the next ten years. Please. Remember the California bullet train? That was “only” supposed to cost $10 billion. Now it’s $65 billion over budget and four years behind schedule! Some bullet.

And even if by some miracle, California could beat the experts and hold costs to their very dubious estimate, where in the hell are they going to get an extra trillion dollars? Here’s where… higher taxes on EVERYTHING and EVERYONE. All so those in America ILLEGALLY can get free health care.

Look, my heart goes out to those in need wherever they’re from. But let’s be fair and equitable. You and I shouldn’t be forced to pay the costs of welfare, free college, or healthcare for people who aren’t even here legally. It’s not right that they would ask or expect to receive the money you and I work hard to earn. And it’s certainly not right that liberal Democrats would use government force to make working Americans pay! If they took our money at gun point in a back alley, it would be called what it is: armed robbery. But because they use a tax collector with police powers, it’s perfectly legal. This has gotten out of control. It’s time to stop, not expand this nonsense!
