Cost of giving illegal immigrants
path to citizenship could
outweigh fiscal benefits

Any immigration reform plan that allows the roughly 11 million individuals now in the United States illegally to stay in the country would bring with it a mix of new revenues and increased costs. And as President Obama and a bipartisan group of senators separately press the issue this week, past studies suggest it is doubtful that the fiscal benefits of such policy changes would outweigh the costs. By legally joining the workforce, the immigrants in question would generate additional and much-needed income tax but also would become eligible for a certain level of government assistance.

I´m trying to grasp desperately the dRATS twisted logic that giving illegal immigrants citizenship suddenly means that they will pay "more" taxes and contribute "more" to paying for 0bamaCare. Every company must have access to that eVerify system and thereby putting the onus on them for who they hire. I know that as a minority, I was hounded for documentation, as well as drug tests to work. Did it ever cross their minds that former company did all those checks?

It´s not 11 million, it is more like 20 to 30 million illegals. We are broke, we cannot afford more free stuff. It will destroy the country within 3 months. Not one crumb left for legal Americans.

The dark won is nothing but a squatter He forces his way into our home, squats his skinny rear and then invites all his hoodlum buddies to ransack and destroy the place. In a country with laws, he would be shot or put behind bars at this point.

Let´s pretend for a moment that the short bus crowd in charge of the GOP right now were to get a clue. Instead of amnesty deals with Schumer, you´d see them talking to the poor, struggling middle class (aka Reagan Democrats) about labor markets, unemployment, and specifically about how illegal immigration hurts the American worker -- unionist or not. You´d also be talking to upperclass Asians and Indians and legal Latino voters about expanding LEGAL immigration for skilled workers. You´d be attacking the De Facto open border policy of this administration. You´d make the moral argument that people who have broken immigration laws, customs law, tax law, labor law, and have falsified official documents should not be put in the front of the line over all those folks trying to play by the rules to get here. And if you were really shrewd you´d talk about how all this cheap illegal labor from Mexico is lining the pockets of corporate democrat donors. But we live in a world of the stupid party, dominated by stupid people like McCain, Gramnesty, Rubio, Sean Hannity, David Brooks, Boehner, McConnell, and so many others.

May as well make them citizens, they already vote. The Democrat/National Socialists made sure of that in the last election. That´s why Obama is "President".

Legalized aliens will not pay anymore taxes then they do now, because most are low income and have a lot of dependents, and instead of paying taxes get a tax refund every year. Once legalized they will become eligible for all the tax credits and that is going to cost the government a lot of money pretty quickly. The only reason that illegal aliens file tax returns now is to get a tax refund and to fraudulently file for tax credits based upon claimed children who are not in the USA.

Once they start putting 11 to 20 million legalized aliens on Obama Care the government will start subsidizing most of them because of their low incomes up to $6,000.00 a family per year. Where is all that money going to come from?

They also intend to open the borders to a huge number of foreign agricultural workers who will do agricultural work for awhile then move on into other industries, be granted citizenship and be replaced by an ever ending stream of new foreign agricultural workers. Since agricultural work is highly seasonal, those foreign workers may only be actually working half of the year, yet they would be allowed to stay in the USA indefinitely. When out of work you can bet that the government will be subsidizing them through a lot of different social welfare programs.

The social security disability program will be a prime target of the legalized alien population once they become eligible, human nature being what it is a good percentage of the legalized alien population will claim all sorts of disabilities to get immediate access to those social security payments.

That there´s any debate on this at all is ludicrous. Number one illegals or former ones will still work under the table to avoid taxes. We´ll still get floods of anchor babies resting comfortably on welfare.We´ll have even more healthcare tourism as people come here for expensive treatments they can´t get back home.All they have to do is show up at an emergency room with cancer or kidney failure and we´ll take good care of them. On the other hand if you´re an 80 year old American,your treatment will be highly in doubt. You´ll see more end of life counseling to get old people off the planet sooner.

Euthanasia will become a big worldwide effort in the next couple years under the guise of over population causing climate change.

FTA ´...also would become eligible for a certain level of government assistance´. Is this writer living in a cave? Illegals start slurping at the taxpayer trough minutes after their arrival. Welfare, food stamps, free medical care, in-state college tuition, we just can´t do enough to make their stay comfortable. Oh, and the Democrats will pull the bus right up to your curb on election day to make sure you vote. Who loves ya baby.

Obama signs Ted Cruz bill into law,

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement. "Nevertheless, as President [George H.W.] Bush also observed,




Can This Marriage Be Saved?

Jeb Bush’s recent musings on a possible presidential run—and his comments on immigration, rankling many in the Republican grassroots—sparked a familiar clash. Jeb, the establishment’s preferred candidate, some said, could neutralize the fiery GOP base in 2016. Conservatives shot back that Jeb would depress conservative turnout, and his last name would play poorly with the general electorate. It’s a constant tension: The base is unhappy with the establishment, and vice versa. But this year, the marriage of convenience between the grassroots of the party and its donor class has emerged so battered from eight years of

Tehran, Iran - Iran will redesign its Arak heavy water reactor to greatly limit the amount of plutonium it can make, the country´s vice president said Saturday, marking a major concession from the Islamic Republic in negotiations with world powers over its contested nuclear program. The comments by Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi comes as the talks face an informal July 20 deadline to hammer out a final deal to limit Iran´s ability to build nuclear arms in exchange for ending the crippling economic sanctions it faces. Iranian state television quoted Salehi, who heads the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, as saying that Iran has

Washington - As President Barack Obama travels through Asia this coming week, he will find a region that’s warily watching the crisis in Ukraine through the prism of its own territorial tensions with China. Each of the four countries on Obama’s itinerary — Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — has a dispute with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas. (Snip) Administration officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, have taken a tougher line on the territorial issues in recent weeks, sternly warning China against the use of military force and noting that the U.S. has not formally taken sides on the question

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
