My health care premium went up $35. That's a lot when you consider other services within your health care system have increased as well, as in your copay!!!
Health care premiums will continue to go up until you foot 100%. Employers have been placing that burden on employees for years. In 2001 I had a $0 monthly premium on my United Health Care. 11 yrs later I'm paying $300 so your company is right on par with employing the frog in the pot ploy.

So why do the companies do that? Becuase the healthcare industry has no checks on the rates at which prices rise. It's uncontrolled and even with Obamacare it still will go up but at least there are more protections for Americans.

I'll put this in simple terms becuase you seem to not understand that the definition of "raw numbers" means the numbers have not been manipulated. Per capita numbers are manipulated numbers and for that purpose, you choose to pretend that "raw numbers" have no significance here. For the record, per capita numbers are based on "raw numbers".

If welfare was cut today.... MORE WHITES WOULD BE EFFECTED THAN ANY OTHER GROUP.

Therefore when you get ignorant white people around here attacking illegal aliens who in fact are not even eligible to collect welfare as being the single sole problem of all combined welfare recipients is a manifest proof that these people are not only ignorant but misleading to the utmost.

I'll concur that anchor babies who are legally US Citizens is the fastest growing addition to the welfare doles but they are in fact... not the largest group of welfare recipients when the comparison is based on race.

Moral of the story here is that if people are going to attack welfare recipients... you need to also address the largest group [lions share] as well. Not just the minority of the welfare doles.

When only the smallest group is attacked and a blind eye is given to the lions share [white welfare recipients].... it becomes blatantly obvious that racism & bigotry is at hand.

It's still a crime to register to vote when you're not lawfully eligible to vote. Most voter registration forms simply ask you to declare that under penalty of perjury that the forgoing is true and correct.

It's basically an honor system.

he is attacking the citizens by his anti-American global plans. anyone wanting amnesty is against the citizens.

Hey Teddy, I just noticed you are close to getting a crown this week and I wanted to be a part of helping you get it. Even though you obviously didn't need it I wanted to prop you. It didn't take long either, the first post I found of yours was worthy so it got one.
Wow, that was nice of you, thanks!

I understand that, because there are still more whites. Let's talk percentages of each group.

Actually most Americans aren't against people of other nationalities.

Have a problem with how immigration law is handled? Then work to force whomever is your government representative to get their rears in gear and stop pretending the problems will go away. They have ALL been cowardly about the problem, Republicans and Democrats alike.

For now, the problem isn't the Mexicans who come across the borders illegally, it's the AMERICAN CITIZENS who hire them, drawing them in.

If their labor is soooo needed, then we need to start a useful dialogue about how to get that labor, protect the workers doing it, and stopping the whole "under the table" crap that isn't good for ANYONE.

And lets face it. Many of the jobs taken by illegals, such as seasonal harvesting, won't be taken by any lazy fat American. So, we need to figure out the best way to make it work to our country's favor.

Rhetoric and zenophobia just doesn't cut it.

Silly stuff, there.

Obama has deported many many more illegals than the previous administration. Bush never met cheap labor that he didn't like.

But still, AMERICANS hire them, so still they come. They aren't leaving their families, risking their lives, just to hide under trees and beg for scraps. AMERICANS are hiring them to work.

It's time to work a plan that brings in any workers we need, and MORE tax dollars into the public coffers.

But our government has always run hot, cold, and scared on a sensible forward thinking immigration plan.

Agreed. But he was using voter registration fraud numbers to support his argument of illegals actually voting. He didn't prove his point.

A National ID card is a better option, but the fundies get all "mark of the beast!!!!!!" crazy at that idea. It will happen one day, though. They will micro-chip all of us, just like we do our pets... and we'll allow it gladly.

gov seems afraid of illegal aliens the way most in mexico fear the cartels.

fact is no one could keep and hire an illegal aliens without gov fully approving. we have laws on the books that have never been used in full,so saying we need reform is backwards. we need to use those laws to the extreme and not look back.

there is no reason to help illegal aliens the only thing we need is start taking companies down who hire them take property and whole bank accounts instead of petty fines those traitors cannot even feel.
the reason things are as they are is do to talking without action.all agreed when the first shamnesty was pushed,they kept the illegal yet never followed the rest they all agreed to.

If ending birthright citizenship is not included in this "reform", I use the term loosely, it will all be for naught, as there will be nothing to stop the next crush of illegals from filing in. Does anybody actually believe that this time the border will be sealed????
