New York decided to challenge California over which state can be the most insane. It’s a rather disturbing contest between the two states over who is really the mecca of progressivism. And by that, I mean mental illness. These two states are both deep blue cesspools. And the worst of the worst on the Hill come from these states. In their latest move, the Empire State decided to block free college tuition for Gold Star families, but offer it to illegal aliens (via Syracuse.com):
New York lawmakers on Tuesday refused to advance a bill that would have provided free college tuition to the families of all military personnel from the state who were killed in the line of duty.
The Assembly’s Higher Education Committee voted 15 to 11 to hold the bipartisan bill, effectively ending its chances of making it to a floor vote this session.
The move comes a week after lawmakers passed a $175 billion state budget that included $27 million to provide college tuition aid for undocumented immigrants.
Some Central New York lawmakers said it was outrageous to block a bill that would likely cost in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to help children of military members who died for their county.
That’s disgraceful. There’s no other reason to do this other than to screw over the families of America’s fallen heroes. It only shows that once again, the Democratic Party cares more about illegals, people who shouldn’t be here, than American citizens. And now, this horrible narrative has leeched into impacting the families of those citizens who have sacrificed everything for the nation. The Empire State of Mind is on crack cocaine. But hey, for a state that voted to kill babies virtually up to the moment of birth—this is par for the course, right?
