In a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan argued that taxes should be raised to support more subsidies for Latinos.
On balance, Latinos are more apt to be tax-consumers rather than tax-payers, Donovan pointed out. A robust program of government investment in housing, food stamps, and welfare disproportionately benefits Latinos. The GOPs plan to cut this spending, on the other hand, would disproportionately hurt Latinos.
Donovan admitted that making the case for tax hikes is not an easy one. The Republicans have done a pretty good job of making the IRS into a

This guy needs a blanket party.
More spread the wealth? =.=
Obama will destroy free America.
The GOP had better get back to its smaller government/lower tax roots or there’s gonna be hell to pay.
latino vs hispanic
latino, code for illegal alien.
In other words, “Hey latinos, we have a plantation for you !”
Wrong. You hurt people when you make them dependent on another, like gov't. What part of free does the liberals hate that they don't want it for any group. But wants to keep them subservient to them/gov't.
Did Shaun read where we are now 103% debt to GDP or not? What do these people need to wake them up?
Monday is the one year anniversary of the occupation of Zuccotti Park, that
liberal “grass roots” project to get even with America.
What a joke and waste of money that was
Gee...remember when politicans used to tell us that illegal immigration was a good thing because these people would shore up Social Security? I knew it was BS then and this admission is just more proof of that.

from what i understand, the cuban refugees are upright hardworking and conservative Americans.
it is the mexican illegals causing the problems. hate to put all latinos in the same bag.
when i grew up in arizona i had several good hardworking friends that were mexican (we didn’t call them latinos back then). that was back in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
More money for Democrats so they can buy (bribe) more votes.
Halfway through the second paragraph I scrolled up to see if it was written by The Onion.
No such luck
These people think all that worry over debt and GDP is bullsh**. There's always more money and big business is hoarding it. And if they're over 30-35 years old, there's no changing their minds.
We are very close to screwed.
