JOSE CAN YOU SEE?
My good friend Ron sent me this story that I feel needs to be shared with every taxpayer in America. This is so plainly factual and simple even a Democratic voter could understand. The problem is that millions can’t read, millions won’t read and millions are dead.
This is an excellent example of why the State of Florida, is suing The United States Government!
JOE vs. JOSE is a hypothetical situation but any sane person will get the point!!!
You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”… Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.
Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.
Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table”.
Get ready for the facts? Sane people pay attention….
Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.
Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $24,031.00.
Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics and emergency hospitals at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.
Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps, WIC and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has 9,631.00.
Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month Federal Rent Subsidy. Jose Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or 2,400.00 for car insurance. Some of that is uninsured motorist insurance. Joe Legal now has $7,231.00.
Jose Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc.
Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.
Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.
Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.
Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same elementary school.
Joe Legal pays for his children’s lunches, while Jose Illegal’s children get a government sponsored lunch.
Jose Illegal’s children have an after school ESL program.
Joe Legal’s children go home.
Now, when they reach college age, Joe Legal’s kids may not get into a State School and may not qualify for scholarships, grants or other tuition help, even though Joe has been paying for State Schools through his taxes, while Jose Illegal’s kids “go to the head of the class” because they are a minority.
Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.
Do you get it, now?
When you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens, you are the problem.
I think that we have to make sure that there are strict penalties, even prison time, for employers who use illegals.
But this will never happen because businesses in the hospitality, construction, and food processing industries will continue to employ them. So regardless of political party, no politician will make any real attempt to stop them from crossing the border. The Republicans talk big about this but they’ll never do anything because these major industries are such big campaign donors. The Democrats are on the other side because they are busy appeasing Hispanic and liberal voters.
I don’t know how it is where you are, Mr. B, but if you drive up in front of a Home Depot or Lowe’s each morning before 7 AM, you’ll see a large number of people waiting for contractors or handymen to drive up and offer them daily work.
Kenn, I would have to drive 60 miles to see a Home Depot or a Lowes. I did a lot of work in Mexico and saw some really hard working people. Sadly when they come up to the US we remove the incentive to work with free services, no taxes and they get lazy like the full time welfare people the democrats pay to not work to get their votes. WE make them lazy over time which is a shame.
