We Conservatives can proudly say that we warned the country of the endless scope of the "entitlement" theories espoused and practised by the Left long ago. Case in point, from the Houston Comical:
Legislation would end Texas' pioneering law granting [ed.: i.e., an "entitlement"] in-state rate, financial aid
Alex—like many students at the University of Houston—is balancing academics with a job. Without the luxury of wealth [ed.: How about the "luxury" of paying your own way through school?], he spends many days each week working construction to pay tuition.
But he faces one more obstacle on the way to a bachelor's degree—his immigration status.
Texas lawmakers have filed at least four bills that would abolish a groundbreaking state law that allows Alex, who asked that his last name not be used because he is in the country illegally, to pay cheaper in-state tuition rates and receive financial aid at UH.
