Deja vu All Over Again

Once again, Governor Patrick is pushing to allow some immigrants to pay in-state tuition. Apparently, Governor Patrick hasn’t received the memo that Massachusetts and the country as a whole are dealing with a massive recession and the last thing people want is their tax dollars going to people here illegally.

Just when you think Governor Patrick has shown complete disregard for Massachusetts taxpayers, he goes even further with a slap in the face like this. Patrick, whose poll numbers are dismal (to be kind), told State House News Service, “I am on record with the leaders, as I am publicly, that I think this is important for us to do as a matter of fairness and a matter of economics as well.” The Governor also said he had spoken with leadership and said, “They do not have consensus yet on moving it.” No kidding, Governor!
