PHONY MATH BEHIND GOP AMNESTY PUSH
By JB Williams
Because the real math does not support anything in the current national agenda, they had to invent new numbers or the American people would never support that agenda.
The huge success of a mission designed to fail, ObamaCare, has resulted in a massive crisis in America. In less than thirty days of operation, ObamaCare has cost over 5 million Americans their existing health coverage, caused over 400,000 senior citizens to lose their eligibility for Medicare, placed an addition 400,000 on “free” (taxpayer-funded) Medicaid, cost thousands of jobs and millions of work hours for those lucky enough to still have a job, and private sector premiums to skyrocket…
Yes indeed, ObamaCare is accomplishing everything it was designed to accomplish, the total destruction of the best healthcare system on earth. But, it hasn’t helped Obama’s approval rating any, dropping to a record low 37% according to left-wing news polling data at CBS.
If the projection that 50-100 million more will soon lose their health coverage comes true, watch out for the mink fur to fly in Washington DC.
The real numbers just aren’t working… So, with a little help from the so-called “conservative think tanks,” Obama plans to solve the crisis they created by ramming another bill through congress that the people will have to wait until it passes to see what’s in it… Amnesty for millions of illegal invaders.
According to the “experts” making up numbers for the RNC on immigration, “Immigration reform is a secret weapon that can help unleash the full power of the U.S. economy.” In other words, they think that amnesty can fund ObamaCare.
Sounds great, right? Can I say, “I told you so!” – It’s the ole Cloward-Piven“hurt and rescue” strategy. First, you cause a crisis (ObamaCare), and then you provide the fix (amnesty for illegals). Simple…
All they need to sell it is the right set of numbers, right?
“The CATO Institute estimates that comprehensive immigration reform would increase U.S. gross domestic product by $1.5 trillion over 10 years. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office believes that it would trim the federal deficit by $135 billion over the same time period.”
Huh? Say that again… did I hear that right?
Millions of illegal immigrants already reside in the U.S.A. and participate in the U.S. economy, hence, the need for amnesty. But if we grant them amnesty, that will somehow “increase U.S. gross domestic product by $1.5 trillion over 10 years” and “trim the federal deficit by $135 billion over the same time period?” – HOW?
By the way, our Federal Government is already almost $18 trillion in debt, losing an additional $1.5 trillion each year due to ongoing deficit spending. Trimming that deficit by $135 billion over ten years, or an average of $13.5 billion per year, is less than a gnat on an elephants rear-end. This is supposed to provide some sort of motivation to make illegal immigration legal?
“Analysis published by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce indicates that a pathway to citizenship for undocumented workers — which would unleash their full contribution to our economy — would create 123,000 new jobs for U.S. citizens in 2014, increasing to 594,000 jobs by 2018. Additionally, it would increase GDP by more than $10 billion the first year, and by almost $50 billion four years later.”
What? Run that by me one more time please!
How will flooding additional workers into the work force during low employment create more jobs? To be kind about it, the notion is insane on its face and there is no way these people are ignorant enough to believe their own propaganda, so they must be intentionally lying.
Or, it is possible that they are referring to the 123,000 new social workers that will be needed to funnel millions of new American citizens into the social welfare system, sign them up for ObamaCare and register them to vote with the Democrat Party. No other jobs could ever be created by flooding an already jobless jobs market with millions of new unskilled laborers.
One of the “experts” behind the fraudulent reports is our old buddy and amnesty Czar for Obama, Carlos Gutierrez, the man who was supposed to deliver the illegal alien vote for Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential election.
In 2008, John McCain received 31% of the Latino vote without help from Carlos… but in 2012, Romney received only 27% of the Latino vote with Carlos Gutierrez in his corner… Obama received 71% of the Latino vote by comparison. Although Gutierrez wants to deliver amnesty for the illegals, he clearly cannot deliver the illegal alien vote to the GOP.
According to these RNC/DNC “experts,” they have driven our country into such financial disarray that we must make illegal invasion of the United States legal. Gutierrez, Abraham and George Soros are working together to force amnesty forward.
According to them, our immigration laws are “outdated” and “broken.” Obviously, we have a HUGE failure in immigration law enforcement, a constitutional responsibility of our Federal Government. Nothing else is actually “broken” or “outdated.”
“Our broken immigration policies deny businesses — from farms to contractors to cutting edge high-tech companies — the employees they need to compete, expand and create more jobs for all American workers.”
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the August 2013 unemployment rate was 7.3 percent, down a tick from 7.4 percent in July. (We all know that this number is also false.) The worrisome part is why the rate fell. The size of the workforce declined by about 300,000 and the participation rate fell to 63.2 percent from 63.4 percent—the lowest since August 1978.
So, Americans are leaving the workforce because they can’t find work and no longer qualify for unemployment benefits, but we can turn this around by legalizing millions of illegal immigrants who are already taking jobs away from American citizens?
“While the 169,000 added to employers’ payrolls in August wasn’t far below the 180,000 median predictions of economists surveyed by Bloomberg, there was a downward revision of 74,000 jobs to the previous two months’ reports. The government said June payrolls grew by only 172,000, rather than 188,000; July’s grew by only 102,000, instead of 162,000. In other words, while employment did grow in August, it was from a substantially lower starting point than previously believed.” Business Week
· 73%of recent college graduates cannot find work related to their degree.
· 53%of recent college graduates are entirely jobless.
· There are 91.5 million people of working age who are not working.
· How does legalizing 20 million law-breakers help 91.5 million out of work?
These numbers do not take into account all of the jobs, hours and benefits currently being lost as a direct result of ObamaCare.
So, tell me again how flooding millions of illegal aliens into the U.S.A. workforce is going to “create new jobs” or “increase our GDP?” How can legalizing 20 million illegal invaders help 91.5 million legal unemployed American citizens find work?
Frankly, if flooding millions of illegal aliens into America was going to generate new revenue, create new jobs and balance our federal budget, these things would have already been accomplished by the millions of illegals already allowed into the U.S.A.
Instead, what we are doing is committing national suicide, and this might be the only thing RNC and DNC morons agree on today, the continued destruction of America.
ABC News reports Al Qaeda members in Kentucky, brought in via Obama’s Middle Eastern refugee program with the help of churches paid to resettle Jihadists in your town and mine. Meanwhile, GOP and DNC insiders rush to legalize more illegal immigration.
The American people win the award for the most tolerant fools on earth. I’m seldom disappointed by the communist actions of DC thugs these days -- they do exactly what I expect them to do.
Now, how about the average American sitting on the sidelines waiting to see just how bad things can get?
Despite a solid majority in the House, Republicans are allowing the Senate to run everything as if the House doesn’t even exist anymore. Yesterday, Senate Democrats pulled the trigger on the “nuclear option” making every Republican Senator totally irrelevant, just like the House.
How much longer will the American people sit and do nothing?
