There is just something soooo wrong with this.
so my son usa citizen but living in South caorlina can’t get in state tuition in Florida?
As the line between illegal alien and citizen gets more blurred, citizenship itself means less and less, under a despotic gov’t.
That’s right. I believe the bill is now headed back to the House.
Hmm.. When politicians side with invaders and make the citizens pay the invaders bills. There’s a name for this.
Governor Scott has impressed me. My former boss was on a business panel Scott set up to bring jobs to Florida. If a company would offer as few as 50 jobs my boss said Governor Scott would get on the phone and cut a deal. He’s been successful. But when he bowed to political pressure to prosecute George Zimmerman he took a big hit in my personal estimation. I’d hope Scott wouldn’t sign this bill, but the Senate and House are Republican and I’d guess they wouldn’t have done this in a vacuum. Unlike Obama, who appears politically clueless, everybody here does know how to get stuff done. Still, I’ll be deeply disappointed.
Is he running against Crist? If the answer is yes, you will know why he wanted this.
“Is he running against Crist? If the answer is yes, you will know why he wanted this.”
I think it’s too early to tell, but I overheard two blacks in the gym discussing Christ. One was explaining why the other should vote for Christ and Two said, “But he’s a Republican, isn’t he?” One: “He was but he’s switched to Democrat.” Two said, “Well, okay then I’ll vote for him.” (That hissing sound was the vacuum leak one of them sprung between his ears.)
The house will probably pass it and Rick Scott supports it.
I’m disappointed as well. BTW, on Twitter the students are now asking Gov. Scott for driver’s licenses.
Florida hates American children.
Has anyone got the names of those who voted against it.
Aaron Bean was convinced to stay strong after he face a primary challenge in 2012.
The house has voted for it a few times. But the Senate blocks it because there was enough Republicans who survived 2008 and 2012.
The senate has blocked it in the past. Jeb and Rick wanted the tuition bill.
I wonder if Rubio will comment on it.
Did Lizbeth Benacquisto vote against it or was she absent?
Here is the link to the votes
