Arnold Thinks Spending Money On Illegals Rocks!

You know, I never understood all those calls years back to amend the Constitution so the Governator could run for president. It was obvious he was a liberal in Republican clothing, and he keeps on proving it

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says he’s “happy” illegal immigrants get state services and says they’re not to blame for California’s $24.3 billion budget gap.

Schwarzenegger, an immigrant himself, says the estimated $4 billion to $5 billion the state spends on illegal immigrants annually is a “small percentage” of the deficit.

Apparently, Arnold fails to understand that he came here legally, and did it all the right way. And imagine what California could do with $4-$5 billion for their own legal citizens. Get ready for your massive tax increases, Caly folks!

Speaking of taxes, here’s how it works

House Democrats working to fill a budget hole of more than $4 billion said Friday that spending cuts are so deep and severe that higher taxes might be the only way to alleviate some of the pain.

Saying that cuts without taxes will be too devastating, House Finance Committee Chairwoman Rep. Jennifer Weiss, D-Wake, said Friday that House leaders are in discussions about ways to raise revenue.

Republican consultant Carter Wrenn said he has seen a similar pattern by Democrats. He said that in the past they have insisted only on budget cuts but then, because of a public outcry, have agreed to new taxes.

The most recent entry on his blog is entitled “The Big Scam.” Wrenn thinks the budget crisis is very real but he believes enough waste and pet projects can be eliminated from the budget without sacrificing services.

“I think we’ve never had the debate on waste,” Wrenn said. “Instead, we had a debate on cutting some things that people really need, and given that choice, the reaction was, ‘OK, let’s raise taxes.’”

Come on, Democrat voters, pony up! You wanted this, so, you should be sending lots of your money to the government to pay for it. You have no problem with that, right?

    What many apologists for illegal immigrants fail to grasp is that even some Hispanics resent the negative impact on schools, social services and jobs which has occurred with our sieve border mandate. I am not sure how many liberal environmentalists can reconcile the increase in water use, pollution and waste produced by increasing populations of people who are here illegally. As for the taxpayers, the funding of government programs, schools and infrastructure makes this a no win situation. And spare me the argument that the illegals pay their share in sales taxes because many of them live three families to a house with many children. There’s no way the school taxes on one house covers the federally mandated ESL, ELL, health and free lunch programs that these kids receive. And if they like what they see in California (bankruptcy) then hold on because those are the same plans, by the same groups, which Team Obama wants to apply nationally.

    Here’s my guess. Obama comes in at the 11th hour and partially bails out Ca. Cuts and taxes cover the rest of the deficit (remember the gas tax they initially axed?). The illegals continue to receive their social services and the state is able to limp into the next fiscal year.

    As we all know though, Obama’s bailouts aren’t free. He’ll end up calling shots in the state. I don’t know if that can be worse that what we have now.

  3. Well, Ellen, can’t disagree in the least. But, remember, with liberals, it is all about intentions, not about outcomes.

    And that will give the Feds even more power over California, which Obama and the Dems will love, rjjrdq
