$154 million veto

The governor rejected a 154 million dollar proposal to help fund community college group health benefits. Saying, “To get money for these employees, community colleges falsified their appropriations requests.” According to the Austin American Statesman most of the money raised for community college comes from local taxes and tuition. I know that for many people a rise in health costs is a huge blow to the pocket book. So how do you find a happy medium? I don’t like the fact that the cost of living goes strait to me. Since I started school tuition was deregulated, I have felt every increase in my tuition. So here is the big question… do educators continue there quest for the money to help there rising cost of insurance to pass the cost down to me when I struggle to pay for my education. Or do they stop the push for the money and let me the student feel a little relief from the finical burden. Gov. Perry wants the money to go to the students. I can see his point of view. He has put us before teachers and this has made a group of people upset. I applaud Perry for what he has done, we the students are the majority and he is following what the majority wants.
