Economic Armageddon is forecast to decimate America on March 1, this coming Friday. Its called sequestration, and President Obama and our duly- elected members of Congress are all in a bloody dither at the very thought of reduced federal spending.
Amazingly, Obama and Congress act as though the crisis is a newly discovered peril, unknown to the best and brightest until last week! Like the god-awful meteorite that ripped into Russia, sequestration is, according to our delusional politicians, a complete surprise that catches us all unprepared.
The inconvenient truth is that this end of times event is a bloody can of worms that has been kicked down the road so often that the worms have evolved into deadly cobra snakes with the capacity to undo civilized society as we know it.
Even more outrageous, is the fact that this latest money mess, is all about the munificent sum of $85 billion dollars.
While it is true that $85 billion dollars IS a lot of money, consider this: Barack Obama’s reckless disregard for financial common sense results in an annual deficit of approximately $1.2 trillion dollars, or about $100 billion a month—no small amount of red-ink!
In other words, the $85 billion savings that would accrue as a result of imposing the sequester would be gobbled up, and then some, in one month by Obama’s feckless spending orgy.
Budget deficits generated during the other 11 months would simply be added to the $16.5 trillion dollar credit account that Obama has with the Chinese!
Still, Obama and Congress blame Europe, GW Bush, the Japanese earthquake, and each other for the bankruptcy of the American dream. No one is at fault, and no one will be held responsible.
If one forgets about the American people, it’s a “win-win” for Obama and the Congress!
Given the chaotic state of the nation’s finances, one wonders why it has not dawned on one, or more, of the elitist intellectuals in whom the American treasury is entrusted to take note of the fact that America shells out more than $100 billion per year (after taxes) to support illegal aliens.
Invading criminals who should not even be here cost American taxpayers more than $100 billion a year! HELLO!
Details concerning this outrage can be found at reference 1, which is summarized, in part, herewith:
“(Washington, D.C July 6, 2010) A new study released today by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimates that illegal immigration now costs federal and local taxpayers $113 billion a year. The report, The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers, is the most comprehensive analysis of how much the estimated 13 million illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children cost federal, state and local governments.
The cost estimates are based on an extensive analysis of federal, state and local spending data. The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers examines dozens of government programs that are available to illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children, both legally and fraudulently. The report provides detailed analysis of the impact of illegal immigration on education, health care, law enforcement and justice, public assistance, and other government programs.
The report also accounts for taxes paid by illegal aliens about $13 billion a year, resulting in a net cost to taxpayers of about $100 billion. However, the study notes that government at all levels would likely have realized significantly greater revenues if jobs held by illegal aliens had been filled by legal U.S. residents instead.”
How in the world can any elected official, including Barack Obama, who claims to be interested in fiscal responsibility blatantly ignore the savings that could be realized by enforcing existing laws and deporting illegal aliens?
Instead, Congress and the President are engaged in a frantic foot race to see who can get credit for bringing approximately 11 million illegal aliens out from the shadows in order to compete for American jobs and otherwise befoul our wretched economy even further!
Importing illiteracy and poverty is the latest in-vogue insanity proffered by Progressive dim wits!
In their rush to dole out a trillion dollars to fund liberal pet projects in the name of stimulating the battered economy, the Democrat-controlled Congress and President Obama have failed to address a major domestic crisis that threatens America’s homeland security, unemployment crisis, social order, and cultural heritage, and which costs taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars each year.
Indeed, the unchecked invasion of our sovereign land by scores of millions of illegal aliens, mostly from the failed state of Mexico, is ignored and even countenanced by wrong-minded liberal policies. Why?
Ironically, many of the current social concerns voiced by liberals could be mitigated, at least partially, by aggressively working to solve the illegal aliens mess.
Concerned about education and overcrowded class rooms?
Removing 11 million invaders would reduce class sizes dramatically, and improve the quality of instruction by weeding out illegals unable to keep up because of language and cultural barriers.
Concerned about overcrowded prisons and jails and the need to spend hundreds of billions to erect even more?
Approximately 30 percent of all inmates are illegal aliens, people who should not even be here to begin with.
Concerned about run away health care costs and the tens of millions whom are uninsured?
Nearly all illegal aliens are uninsured and do not otherwise pay for their heath care, although they somehow manage to send approximately $30 billion a year back to Mexico. Medical services not paid for by illegals are dumped on the backs of Americans who belong here.
Concerned about violent crime, drugs, gangs and the general deterioration of the rule of law?
In addition to the crime of being in America unlawfully, illegal aliens exacerbate crime in this nation.
Concerned about the loss of jobs and reduced standard of living for working Americans?
Illegal aliens undercut American citizens by working for lower wages and without benefits. In effect, they steal jobs from real Americans.
With Democrats committed to spending trillions of dollars of taxpayer money to revive the Obama-jinxed economy, why not fix the illegal alien mess, once and for all, by building a viable border fence and by sending those who have no business being here back to their nations of origin?
Over ten years, the savings would be over $1 trillion dollars. And the rule of law would be sustained, and American culture and language preserved!
Wake Up, America! Deport illegal aliens and save $100 billion a year—without sequestration!
