California Passes Dream Act, Illegal Aliens Now Entitled to Scholarships

Wow. The bankrupt state of California passes the DREAM Act. This act entitles illegal aliens, under certain conditions, to obtain private taxpayer funded scholarships to college. http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5gTpLn4cVCgXcE_jx1HDfKTBEiifg?docId=CNG.35938e723ad2fcbcb70c6292de0e98b4.9b1

It was really hard for me to find the precise funding source for this act. This was the best that I could do:

The signing of AB 131 would supplement the passage of AB 130, which allows undocumented students access to private financial aid in the forms of grants and scholarships. The second part of the bill expands financial aid to include state-backed funding. California Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 130 into law in July.

Nothing from California shocks me. California is the "death star" of statists and central planning. This is a state which is limping along with a patchwork 21 billion dollar make believe budget. They cannot pay their unfunded pension liabilities. They are bankrupt.

So what do statist politicians do when faced with the imminent possibility of voter anger? They do this. Why? Because of this:

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can exist only until the voters discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always to be followed by a dictatorship."
