Eliminate Welfare and unemployment benefits and you have more than enough money. Put these people to work.

Certain school programs, more prevalent in border towns are very cost affective. By no fault of their own, children of non-Americans are swelling the school systems. With a hire freeze on educators our school districts are over capacity, more students ratio to a single teacher per class room means less attention on emphases being able of providing a quality education to our own kids! I believe that having to provide a bilingual teacher to teach our children in both English and Spanish is not necessary. Again I want to emphases that with no fault to the non-American kids the burden should fall on their government of providing healthy surroundings of their school systems!

"Given the complete dominance of conservative ideology in Texas politics, tax increases are out of the question. So it has to be spending cuts.

Yet Mr. Perry wasn’t lying about those “tough conservative decisions”: Texas has indeed taken a hard, you might say brutal, line toward its most vulnerable citizens. Among the states, Texas ranks near the bottom in education spending per pupil, while leading the nation in the percentage of residents without health insurance. It’s hard to imagine what will happen if the state tries to eliminate its huge deficit purely through further cuts. "


So Texans have been LYING LOL.

Sucks to be you.

and acting like the Republicrumbs idiots they are:

"Right now, triumphant conservatives in Washington are declaring that they can cut taxes and still balance the budget by slashing spending.

Yet they haven’t been able to do that even in Texas, which is willing both to impose great pain (by its stinginess on health care) and to shortchange the future (by neglecting education).

How are they supposed to pull it off nationally, especially when the incoming Republicans have declared Medicare, Social Security and defense off limits? "

Republicrumb scum of the earth are making yet another run at killing Social Security. Actually, they just want to STEAL from it and give it to the same Wall Street scumbags who gave us the Bumbya Bush Great Recession.

The only thing Republicrumbs learned from this massive financial disaster is how to do it again.
