Ripoffs aren’t definite of course, [...]
At a time when belt-tightening is a necessary strategy for many states, the number bankrolling educations for illegal aliens is increasing: now 15 states are wasting taxpayer funds on foreigners when many citizens could use a hand.

A recent Census report (Poverty: 2009 and 2010) found that the Golden State had nearly six million persons in poverty, an extraordinary number for a place that was thought not long ago to be inexhaustibly wealthy.
