Massachusetts' Reasonable State Senators

Hard economic times seems to be turning even legendary liberals into fiscal conservatives.

The Massachusetts state senate gave the thumbs up to a measure aimed at preventing illegals from obtaining public benefits.

From the Springfield Republican's web site: "The debate included a 28-10 vote to approve the budget amendment on immigrants, just a day after the Senate passed a more general amendment requiring people to show proof of citizenship to obtain Medicaid and unemployment benefits."

It remains to be seen if the House of Reps. will go along with the measure.

Yeah, and the House turned it down about a month ago.

But with the Tea Party keeping Pols on their toes (even in the legendary liberal state of Massachusetts) maybe this time it will fly.

Let's hope.
