    Senate OKs ban on benefits for illegals - BostonHerald.com

    Early this week Channel 7 Suffolk poll had 84% said that we should force
    everyone to prove their status before they are eligible for benefits.

    Considering this is an election year, Deval Patrick may think twice about a veto when 84% support the issue. !

    84% must include a lot of left leaning loons & at least a half dozen moonbats.

    Re: State Senate appoves ban on benefits for Illegals


    I've got to read more about this, cuz it was just a couple of weeks ago that they voted down a bill that would have required the state to verify citizenship, for anyone applying for benefits. So what this bill does, or does not do, is what I'd like to truly find out.

    Even liberals are starting to see that our country is falling apart, their Politically Correct Messiah Poster Boy and his gang of rats in Congress trying to force their Government and their Left Wing Socialist Do-Gooding Liberal crap down the throats of the American People is finally coming to a head, the American People will never allow The Insane To Run The Asylum.

    NOVEMBER IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER

    THE OLD TURNCOAT MCCAIN SEES THE WRITING ON THE WALL, HE SHARES MUCH OF THE BLAME FOR THE SUCCESSFUL INVASION OF ILLEGAL ALIENS NOW AS HE USUALLY DOES HE IS BLOWING WITH THE WIND HE WANTS 6000 TROOPS SENT TO THE BORDER TO TRY AND STOP SOMETHING THAT HAS HIS FINGERPRINTS ALL OVER.

    MCCAIN WILL JOIN SPECTER (out to pasture)

    People That Support The Illegal Alien Invasion Are RACISTS.

    The house won't approve of it, and Deval sure as hell will never sign off on it- not in an election year :rolleyes:

    Now we just need to pass something akin to Arizona... or at least put back into place what Romney signed.

    With 84% approving the idea, would Deval risk using his veto in an election year?

    I have no doubt he would veto it in a non-election year.

    This passed easily in the senate (almost 3-1 in favor of the ban).
    After the recent poll, it just may pass the house in their next vote.

    And risk alienating his base voter support from the college towns and the minority laden cities? No chance in hell he would risk losing them to Cahill- that would open up the door for Baker to win. That also doesn't factor in him trying to get a job down in Washington in the future, a signing of the bill would make him too toxic for any appointed position especially with an election coming up in 2012.

    Passage doesn't really matter if he vetoes the bill, all it does is act as a smoke screen for the upcoming elections to appease the voters. "hey lookie here majority! I voted for this bill, I deserve your vote!" No matter what happens to the bill t's a win/win for the legislature.

    I agree passage does not matter if he veto's the bill.

    If 84% of the people approve of this ban, a veto will only hurt him and
    he knows it.

    It is the independents who will decide the election.
    If 84% approve of the ban, I bet that number is close to 90% of
    independent voters.

    Who else is his voter base (urban voters, college students, left wingers)
    going to vote for? I don't see Cahill or Baker taking many of those votes
    even if Deval signs the bill, joins the NRA, & buys another Cadillac on
    the tax payers dollar.

    Remember.... the urban voters re-elected Diane Wilkerson after
    she was a convicted of federal tax evasion.
