Deport all illegals now! No immigration bill, no social security, no welfare, no rights! Just a bus ticket home at the expense of their native government. They broke the law and don't belong here. And they smell like naval lint.

Why should we import millions of workers, when there are millions of Americans sitting on the bench?

If we want to boost the economy, then put and end to extended unemployment benefits.

What jobs Americans are "willing" to do is relative to how hungry they are.

Hunger is a good thing. It's your body's way of telling you that you're a slacker.

That sounds like Pelosi comment that welfare is good because poor people spend it rather than save it. What an idiot she is.

“i hope we can change this!”

YEAH!!!! If they don't wanna work, have them dig a ditch, line em up, and machinegun em. Oh forgot, the krauts figured out that wasn't cost effective. Could get congress to figure that out instead of backstabbing one another. Oh well. I guess the CARNIVAL SCRIPT rules over work.

Boost the economy?

Well, no wonder the Republicans are dragging their feet.

They are 100% opposed to anything that might boost the economy, that might help.

The name of the game is "SABOTAGE" and the
Repubs have been playing it for four years.

How much do you know about premiums under Obamacare?

The CBO has found that for most Americans, VERY LITTLE WOULD CHANGE. If you get insurance through your employer, or through the government, then Obamacare probably won’t effect you much. When we talk about premiums changing, we’re talking about the minority of Americans who buy health insurance on their own or through a very small employer.

For some, premiums will go up because the insurance coverage
will be so much better. The really lousy insurance so many
people get through their small employer or pay for themselves
will have to be upgraded to comply with Obamacare.
No more insurance company shenanigans. The coverage will be
adequate.

Pure hogwash.

Millions of jobs will be created? How? Are they all going to quit their jobs?
And, all of a sudden, immigrants will start paying taxes on their income? Why? The family back home doesn't need them to send money anymore?

So how would it boost the economy? Most of them are all on Welfare and foodstamps. I guess it will help grocery stores, thats about all.

That is for sure, this BS just continues by the mostly liberal media in an attempt to justify what is unjustifiable.

Help the economy? This continues flooding the labor pool to reduce wages for almost all Americans. It does help the economy for the 1% because they pay less it wages so they put more money in their own pockets. The very very rich get to keep more of the fruit of the labor of those who do the work.

Sure, those millions of illegals would boost Social Security's collections.

HOWEVER, the time will come to pay the Piper WHEN there are MILLIONS more with their hand out to COLLECT when THEY eventually retire.

It is VERY SHORTSIGHTED to even consider such thinking.

If these illegals really want to come to the country for the opportunities, why not come legally? They are coming for the freebies, and that will not help SS or anything else.

Just because they were smart enough to make money, you hate and resent. Get a life!
