The IRS says "Resident aliens, in general, have the same liability for Social Security/Medicare Taxes that U.S. Citizens have."
Even more interesting, if you're a non resident alien doing some work in the US on a short contract, you're still going to wind up paying these taxes.
Being a non citizen doesn't really get you out of anything but jury duty.
we have spun from tourists to those with work visa in a single bound.

illegals are not paying taxes other than what a tourist does, unless they have a work visa, or are going through process of becoming legal.

a social security number is required to pay taxes.

again as a reminder, you spun from tourist to a foreigner actually working and living here is a single bound.

if an employer reports payments to an entity or person, they have to also report it to IRS so they can deduct it as an expense. We call this a 1099 in America.

1099's written to a fake name and social security number, the US Treasury never see's tax payments on.

The topic was always concerned with legal non-citizen residents. Never tourists. Never illegal aliens.

The ILLIGALS pay more in taxes than you think. they are the only ones that want to work, your local lazy freeloaders only collect welfare, so how can they pay taxes. so let everybody vote and make it a better country. If you want something work for it don,t let the Gov. support you. We need to cut all welfare from farm, oil, bio fuels, airlines,food stamps,single mothers,(let the fathers support them) and all the waste, I could go on and on. Don't forget foreign aid. If you get hungry work for it.

You don't need a social security number to pay taxes.

You can use a SSN, or if you're a non citizen alien you can use your ITIN as a taxpayer identification number.

I'm not sure where the idea of tourists is coming from, I don't think anyone has proposed anything like that.

I hire amish, Mennonites, Americans of Italian descent. I never hire beaners or central american trash. Only good beaner is one that is being picked apart by turkey vultures or buzzards.

Beaners are as filthy as a skinny and carry more diseases.

Nor are they residents. I went to school out of state and was never once considered a resident, right down to my license plates.

It's still a fraudulent number(ITIN). I have witnessed them only using that for certain things (court, car titles, etc.), and use another whole name for work records, which blinds the tax ID, or any other traces of their real name. Kinda like, keep that tax identification number clean as possible, but have a backup to minimize earned income. The ones that are using it,(so to speak, proper) are playing the game and taking the jobs from americans.

That assures that even Bloomberg types could no longer win.

Nothing stops the state of NY itself from allowing non-citizens to vote. If they did, it's almost certain the GOP would lose the remaining House seats.

And if you were able to pass it, you might have a clue about why we don't have such a thing.
