Jun 22, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CBS News

Noting recent studies showing that the Senate's immigration reform bill would trim the deficit and extend the solvency of Social Security, President Obama, in his weekly address, said, "The time for excuses is over - it's time to fix our broken immigration system once and for all."

If the immigration laws that already exist were upheld we wouldn't need any reforms.

I can't wait for all those Jihadists to infiltrate this country after Congress passes this immigration reform bill.

The amputees of the Boston Bombing should sue the US government for letting those terrorists in this country.

If we add up all the savings from obamacare and now immigration, we'll be out of debt in 70-80 years.

More progressive math. We only count the money the 11 million illegals will pay INTO social security, not what they will take out.

Illegals won't pay any taxes. They're unwilling to pay now, you think they'll pay later? LOL

When there are NO White House Tours because of sequestration and the taxpayer can't view the PEOPLE'S HOUSE,

BUT the Obama Family can take a week's African vacation for $80,000,000 to $100,000,000 of TAXPAYER MONEY

is a sure example of the WASTE in our government and the total abuse of taxpayer money.

ALL the elected people, the workers and appointed officials in Washington, DC are out of touch with the average Americans.

They think NOTHING of spending such massive amount$ of taxpayer money and then cry saying there isn't enough money.

SOcial Security excess was taken by elected officials and given to other programs, THE SAME WILL HAPPEN WITH OBAMACARE.

Obama = LIES

“i hope we can change this!”

The Fed can't lower the rate any lower. Lowering the rate has how the Fed has prevented recession in the past.

I think we are going to have to declare bankruptcy.

Congress and the President don't have any interest in giving us a budget in the black. I guess we'll have to rely on the courts. Let's just hope the judge that handles it understands the Laffer curve.

So Democrappers, tell us how illegals will boost the economy. Will they pay taxes with their Welfare checks? They don't buy food, medical care, pay for educating their kids, or the free lunches. They pay a few cents when buying beer.

Those that keep saying amnesty will help the economy are those that will profit from increased taxes, increased cost of living and decreased wages. Amazing how the rich have convinced the poor that increased immigration and amnesty are good ideas when the poor are the ones who will suffer the most. Since the 1986 amnesty wages have decreased and unemployment has increased almost every year. Historically the poor and middle class in this country have always suffered during the times of highest immigration and every wave of immigration has resulted in a recession or depression.

Just the cost of the government 'processing' the registration, fines and certifying that the illegals have learned English is going to build one THREE MORE LAYERS of BLOATED government beuracracy.

And will cost HOW MUCH MORE??

Obama's financial advisers must have flunked mathematics.
