Statement from Senate Majority Leader Diane Rosenbaum on passage of Tuition Equity Bill

This is important legislation, but nothing is dramatically altered by SB 742. Only about 100 students will be affected by this bill the next 7 years.

(SALEM, Ore.) - Below is a statement from Senate Majority Leader Diane Rosenbaum on the passage of SB 742, legislation that grants in-state tuition to students entering the Oregon University System that have attended and graduated from an Oregon high school, been admitted to an Oregon University, and who are actively working toward U.S. citizenship:

“Tuition Equity is about continuing our state’s commitment to its students. The students who will benefit from SB 742 have attended a U.S. school for at least five years, graduated from an Oregon high school, and are on the path to citizenship. By allowing a student to stay in Oregon and attend college, we’re keeping some of our best and our brightest in the state. This is the right thing to do.

This bill gives students fair tuition rates, nothing more. Students will still have to earn their entrance into public universities. In the long run, this bill will help us improve our workforce, by allowing Oregon high school graduates to stay in the state and pursue higher education.

Tuition equity will cost Oregon taxpayers absolutely nothing; it’s not a free pass to college for anyone. In fact, it would actually bring more tuition dollars into the Oregon University System because students who would otherwise be unable to attend college will enroll.

This is important legislation, but nothing is dramatically altered by SB 742. Only about 100 students will be affected by this bill the next 7 years. This is not a large number of students, but it will make a life-changing difference to those who are able to attend college. They have worked hard and through higher education they will be able to make a contribution to the future success of Oregon.”

Maybe Ms. Rosenbaum can discuss the number of relatives living in Israel, here and in Europe who were "directly" involved in the USS Liberty war crime? Also why since the Korean War, American jews, from a statistical ratio proportion, are statistically nil for serving in our military? How many were killed/wounded in Vietnam/Iraq/ Afghanistan? Oh the pat answer is "there are other ways to serve your country." BS! Then when you vote against the will of the majority in funding those who are here illegally, what skin do you have in the game to spend my tax money? Afterall Ms. Rosenbaum, the majority of my Oregonians do not want this to happen, nor do I want you to say that you are reflecting your bosses in this matter, that is the voters. But then maybe you have other bosses that you follow? Do they call us GOY? What other so-called relgious document, like the Talmud, has more "hate-filled" verbiage than that utterly evil screed? Rosenbaum: "Tuition equity will cost Oregon taxpayers absolutely nothing." By the way people, our taxes pay nearly 2/3's of the student's college costs. Tuition is a tiny fraction and Ms. Rosenbaum knows it. Remember that liars simply don't care about the will of the people. Just remember pedophile Neil Goldschmidt, he was just a minor player in this anti-American non-Goy Cabal. Know your world history.
