More On Amnesty: Bill Could Cost The US $2.5 Trillion (With a T!)

How could it not cost the already-overspending government a lot of money?

Poor people -- even the working poor -- simply do not pay more in taxes than they consume in tax-supported services. Poor people pay their own payroll taxes -- entirely for their own benefit, not to subsidize anyone else or pay for any other public good -- and a small amount of state sales taxes (which do not nearly cover the costs of the general public benefits they utilize) and, at most, a tiny amount of actual income tax. (Actually, very few of the working poor pay any income tax at all; they've been more or less elimiated from the income tax rolls entirely.)

So now the government -- already running deficits and overspending -- wishes to import twelve million new working-poor citizens and millions of additional family members either too young or too old to work at all?

What impact does this have on Medicare? Medicaid? Supplemental Social Security? Funding schools and hospitals?

Where does the government thing it's going to get this $2.5 trillion from? The pathway-to-citizen ex-illegals pulling down $25,000 per year?

No, from you, of course.

You owe it to them, you know? Not only are you responsible for providing for this nation's poor, you also, somehow, picked up the obligation to subsidize and support the poor of the entire hemisphere somewhere around 2002.

You never agreed to this, you never voted on it. And yet this new obligation was imposed on you.

By President Bush -- because he cares enough to fund his compassison with your money.
