if she is allowing foreigners to pay less tuition than usa citizens, how can she claim she is doing quote, "everything in her power"??

my take on napolitano.. a pro-illegal that cares more for foreigners than she does for american students.

A study of skulls excavated from the tip of Baja California in Mexico suggests that the first Americans may not have been the ancestors of today's Amerindians, but another people who came from Southeast Asia and the southern Pacific area.

Actually the very first Americans were Asians.

If Bush was President then they would have the occupy movement out crapping on police cars and buildings. Kids today are brainwashed to think the great Obama will save them.

what "outcry" are you talking about?

frankly, I don't recall any news coverage about usa students speaking up at all.

we have literally millions of students in the usa, and nobody is speaking up.

unbelievable.

I guess they enjoy supporting all these foreigners coming here and paying less tuition then they are paying.

California Budget Surplus: Golden State Debates What To Do With Extra Money



SAN FRANCISCO -- The late rapper Notorious B.I.G. may have been have hailed from New York, but his immortal maxim, "mo' money, mo' problems" has surfaced in the Golden State.

Earlier this week, California Gov. Jerry Brown unveiled his revised budget plan for the fiscal year that begins in July. It reaffirmed something that many in government have been predicting for some months: the state may be headed for a multi-billion dollar budget surplus resulting from the rebounding economy and a tax hike approved by voters last November.

The notoriously cash-strapped state spending less than it takes in hasn't occurred in more than a decade. Unsurprisingly, a lot of people have a lot of different ideas about how that money should be used -- from restoring government programs slashed from years of budget cuts to paying down the massive collection of debt obligations that the Los Angeles Times called a $28 billion cloud hanging over the state's future.

Though much of the surplus could be automatically diverted into the state's public education system, that hasn't stopped some in Sacramento from drawing up their own wish lists for what to do with the additional revenue.

if you raise the taxes high enough, and add additional surcharges you should be able to reduce the deficit. the fact that California is still feeling the effects of the recession didn’t stop either the state or local governments from increasing our taxes and services over the last year. the amount of taxes that the citizens of California are forced to pay is almost criminal. and so is the large amount of tax revenue that’ being spent to pay the high wages, benefits and pensions of both pass and present government employees. labor unions run this state. Id like to see the list of major companies that have left this state. It's got to be one of the worst states to retire in.

oh. I get it. he's only referring to a "surplus" for ONE year.

california will still have TOTAL DEBT of 1 TRILLION DOLLARS. the surplus that california might experience for ONE year will not even dent that figure.

just so everybody understands exactly what is happening.

Just so everyone understands the point of contention here....

"Asian" feller does not know WTF he's talking about,
being in debt is one thing, to claim that California is "Bankrupt" is another.
Learn the difference little feller.
