Lol at NoFaith. Name says it all. Taxpayers? Everyone, EVERYONE... Pays taxes. It's pretty funny how people like you think they know the situation from every view possible. Reform is meant to better the country economically and to help people who want to have a positive future, have a chance at one. Deport them all? That sounds pretty ignorant.
Just what we need another crack head in office. Ever notice how city paper always supports those who are against American ideals? Bad writers bad reporting= bad paper
Interesting how half the commentators can't read or distinguish the difference between a US Citizen by birth and an undocumented immigrant. You're so hateful, you can't grasp that simple concept.. Sad.
These kids, rather you all like it or not, are US Citizens! Period!
Congressional Budget Office Report :
"Between 2009 and 2012, the federal government recorded the largest budget deficits relative to the size of the economy since 1946, causing federal debt to soar.
Federal debt held by the public is now about 73 percent of the economy’s annual output, or gross domestic product (GDP).
That percentage is higher than at any point in U.S. history except a brief period around World War II, and it is twice the percentage at the end of 2007."
If current laws generally remained in place, federal debt held by the public would decline slightly relative to GDP over the next several years, CBO projects.
After that, however, growing deficits would ultimately push debt back above its current high level.
CBO projects that federal debt held by the public would reach 100 percent of GDP in 2038, 25 years from now, even without accounting for the harmful effects that growing debt would have on the economy
. Moreover, debt would be on an upward path relative to the size of the economy, a trend that could not be sustained indefinitely. "
The debt of the U.S. government has increased $6.666 trillion since President Barack Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009, according to the latest numbers released by the Treasury Department.
When President Obama was first inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009, the debt of the U.S. government was $10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Public Debt.
As of Jan. 31, 2014, the latest day reported, the debt was $17,293,019,654,983.61—an increase of $6,666,142,606,070.53 since Obama’s first inauguration.
The total debt of the United States did not exceed $6.666 trillion until July 2003.
In the little more than five years of the Obama presidency, the U.S. has accumulated as much new debt as it did in it’s first 227 years.
Government Pensions $1.2 trillion
Government Health Care + $1.3 trillion
Government Education + $1.0 trillion
National Defense + $0.8 trillion
Government Welfare + $0.5 trillion
All Other Spending + $1.6 trillion
Total Government Spending $6.4 trillion
Federal Deficit + $0.7 trillion
Interesting point, since the deficit has actually gone down since the Democrat's administration took office.
Especially interesting, since we were running a surplus before the last Republican administration cut taxes during wartime.
Fcb, The democrats are currently spending us into a black hole...
soon there will be no escaping the downward pull.
Putin needs to do nothing more than sit back and watch.
Wanna see a firestorm... two words.
LiamBees, CofC gets 8% of its funding from the state, and state funding continues to decline across the board. If CofC merged with MUSC and became a research university, their state funding would likely increase dramatically, putting them in line with other research universities (USC, Clemson). There are lots of reasons why people are resisting a merger, but keeping "all of that state money" is definitely not one of them.
As far as education goes, he can look to 48 or 49 other states that have much better education systems.
Not Ron Swanson approved.
Can someone explain what is meant by Husk not allowing their employees to drink their bourbon? Are they saying you can't even pay for it if you work there? Don't drink (bourbon) while working? This makes the owners of husk seem like dicks.
I really hope this merger happens. CofC has been limited in what it can do by not having a serious post grad research wing. This merger would make better use of musc's VAST coffers.
The people against, afaict, either fear losing their identity or wasn't too keep all that state money to themselves.
Cid, kudos, you've never made me smile before.
If you have to have a paternity test to determine if the child is yours...you are clearly in the wrong relationship. But I guess the only woman who would give him the time of day is some ditzy, party girl with a bad reputation and an arrest under her belt even before she was of legal age. Just another hooch looking for a rich baby daddy so she can be set for life...and he was stupid enough to oblige.
"but at least he seems genuinely passionate about reforming the prison-industrial complex. I do wish he'd expand on the idea and talk more about reforming the unequal treatment in sentencing but I doubt he has the capacity for that sort of empathy."
Top comment. Quality insight, too.
