Spitzer Hood: Taking from the Poor and Giving to the Illegals

In his latest temper tantrum and vindictive vengeance, Governor Spitzer is taking away money that would fund important programs for legal American citizens in attempt to crush opponents of his plan to license illegal aliens. According to the NY Post article "Spiteful Spitzer KOs health $$ in ID spat" , Spitzer is trying to punish Assembly Minority leader James Tedisco, a vocal opponent of the governor’s ridiculous plan to provide identification to individuals living in America illegally. Actually, Spitzer is so blinded by his vengeance that he doesn’t realize he is punishing American citizens in need of state funding for programs they rely upon.

By canceling the $300,000 a shameful Spitzer will be denying free health care to those desperately in need, hundreds of school children will be less secure because funding for video surveillance equipment will not be available, upgrades to playgrounds will not be completed and kids who enjoy football will not have the equipment required to enjoy and play the sport safely.

It is mind boggling that Spitzer is more concerned about the rights and privileges of illegal aliens than the well-being of American citizens living in New York.

This Govenor should be impeached. I am very surprised...a former attorney general....go figure. I am sorry I voted for him. I thought he would be tough and fair. Boy was I wrong!

I don't agree with Spitzer, but at least he isn't a war mongering Republican... I think at this point we don't need Republicans anywhere in the country.

This goes to show you have Prosecutors abuse their power .. he just can't help himself. He does not have the temperment to govern .. he may be worse than Pataki.

Speaking of Pataki who Sits with him everyday?

I can't believe it was not thrown out completely. If you are here illegally, you should be deported. Not rewarded! What is the matter with these idiot politicians? Do they need votes that bad?

Our country's security comes first. Don't say giving identity don't. THEY ARE HERE ILLEGALLY!!!!!!!!
