Florida: Providing in-state tuition to illegals is why politicians are held in such low esteem

Every session examples pop up so let’s examine what the Florida Legislature is on the verge of doing this session which clearly illustrates a disconnect between them and their citizen constituents.

The Speaker of the House started the session supporting In-State Tuition for illegal aliens. In short order HB 851 sailed through the House and was overwhelmingly approved with strong Republican support and unanimous Democrat votes. This is legislation that was defeated numerous times going back to 2003 when Marco Rubio co-sponsored a similar bill.

In the Florida senate SB 1400 has passed three of four committees with the strong help of Republicans who control the senate as well. Many of the same Republicans who voted in previous committees with unanimous Democrat support are on the Judiciary committee, so passage is imminent.

This is a perfect example of the point I want to make. There is absolutely no way the voters of Florida who are forced to educate, medicate and incarcerate illegal at a cost of $5.2 Billion annually would vote for another tax imposed on them to further educate children who cost taxpayers substantially more to educate than our own children. There is not one state poll that would show any meaningful support rather overwhelming opposition to the idea. I would be willing to wager a bet there is not one Republican that has voted for in-state tuition for illegal aliens when running for election said they would vote to do it. Not one!

It is pretty certain the bill will be passed and sent to the governor for his signature who has said he supports it. Remember him, he is the guy that got elected because he said he wanted to pass a bill like AZ 1070 promising mandatory e-verify for all business owners while after four years in office he has done nothing and we have 600,000 illegal aliens employed in the state.

Two Faced Politicians cannot be trusted to fulfill their promises to support what the majority wants that voted them in office. They deserve to be held in low esteem since they basically say the voters opinions don’t count.

We will see what happen on November 4th, 2014. When they go against the wishes of Floridians who elected them, they deserve to be sent back to the private sector. They are not worthy of the public’s trust.
