The DREAM Act: A Spending Nightmare

The Spendocrats in office right now are attempting to tie the “DREAM Act” as an amendment to the Defense Authorization bill, and will be voting on it tomorrow, Tuesday, September 21 at or around 2:00.

In a nutshell, the DREAM Act will allow the federal government to – again – force the American taxpayers to pony up more money we don’t have in order to pay for their ideological pursuits. The DREAM Act will increase the cost of higher education for every state, but especially those with large illegal immigrant populations.

Our states are flat broke and need to reform their budgets, not spend more
It forces states to give taxpayer funded financial aid to illegal immigrants
It forces states to allows illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition
These provisions can be utilized by illegal immigrants until the age of 35
There is ZERO accountability in place to track the money and costs
There is no scoring from the Congressional Budget Office
There is no estimate of the cost to the American taxpayer for the cost of the education and military benefits, or the cost of the fast track to citizenship also mandated in the bill
Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and President Obama have not passed a BUDGET for FY2011 which starts in October and they want to spend more without any thought about how much this will cost you and me!
From a lawmaker in California (the state with a $19 Billion shortfall!) on the potential costs: “We’re spending roughly a billion dollars annually for financial aid now, so every one percent increase in that spending would translate to an additional $10 Million from the general fund.”

Fight back against wasteful, ideological spending that violates all of our principles: fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets
