WHAT IF THEY LEFT AND THEN ENTERED LEGALLY?

My friend Dr. Peter Forrest sent me this message that I have decided to post on my blog. These are awesome facts and certainly support that our immigration laws, ignored by Washington, are the problem. If we followed the law we would not suffer these wasted dollars. What do we have to gain from making these criminals legal, 100% will vote for Democrats. Do you really think this will help anyone else?

What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America?

I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, “Mexican Visitor’s Lament”.

I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, “Illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes. What Happens to your country’s economy if 20 million people go away?” Hmmm, I thought, what would happen?

So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.

It’s a good question it deserves an honest answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? The answers I found may surprise you!

In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grandchildren would move back ‘home’, mostly to Mexico. That would save Colorado an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our grid locked cities in Colorado. Denver’s 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.

In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

If 20 million illegal aliens returned ‘home’, the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn’t be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 Billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

No more push ‘1’ for Spanish or ‘2’ for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the ’18th Street Gang’ would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!

America’s economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed.

Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn’t return to the aliens’ home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America’s economy which currently suffers an $8.7 trillion debt. $8.7 trillion debt!

At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.

Americans wouldn’t suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country-brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would put the ‘progressives’ on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11% of our greenhouse gases.

Over one million of Mexico’s poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, California in what the New York Times called, ‘colonias’ or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.

The New York Times reported them to be America’s new ‘ Third World ‘ inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I’ve seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it’s sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)

By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico. We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico. We already invite a million people into our country legally more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation. 

It’s time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.

Interesting Statistics! Here are some reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:

$14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens. (that’s Billion with a ‘B’) http://tinyurl.com/zob77.html 

$7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens. http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.html

$12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English! http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

$27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

$3 Million Dollars ‘PER DAY’ is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. That’s $1.2 Billion a year. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

$190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0610/29/ldt.01.html

$200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0606/12/ldt.01.html

During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries. Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, Guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border. http://tinyurl.com/t9sht

OBAMACARE FACTS!

A recent article in Newsmax written by Jim Myers revealed some significant facts about Obamacare. As I have written several articles on this subject I wanted to share this with those who have followed the subject. Facts are Facts, regardless of the bias of the national media. This is the reason I gain my knowledge from the blogs that just report facts.

“The Price of Obamacare’s Broken Promises,” was prepared by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Majority Staff; Senate Committee on Finance, Minority Staff; and Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, Minority Staff.

“Studies and analyses from the Congressional Budget Office, independent actuaries, state insurance commissioners, health plans, benefit consultants, and others have reached the same conclusion: Obamacare will significantly increase premiums,” the congressional report states.

“Some estimates show some Americans facing startling premium increases of 203 percent because of the law.

“Higher healthcare premiums are the last thing single young adults and working families can afford. Yet contrary to what the president promised, that is exactly what Obamacare is projected to do.”

When Obamacare’s most costly requirements go into effect in 2014, households earning as little as $46,000 a year will receive no premium assistance, yet will be forced to accept “unaffordable” premium increases, according to the report.

The Affordable Care Act will have an especially harsh impact on young Americans ages 21 to 29 — those with individual coverage will see their healthcare premium rise by an average of 189 percent.

The report points to several factors that will result in significantly higher healthcare costs for Americans:

The healthcare reform bill mandates that individuals pay the same premiums regardless of future anticipated medical expenses, leading to sharply increased premium costs for those under 50.

Obamacare requires that individuals purchase coverage that includes a range of “essential” health benefits, including coverage for preventive services, chronic disease management, and rehabilitative services, thereby restricting consumers’ choice in the design of their health plans and adding to their insurance premiums.

The law imposes $165 billion in new taxes and fees on health plans, drug manufacturers, and device makers, and these costs will be largely passed on to consumers in the form of higher premiums. One study cited by the report predicts that Obamacare’s health insurance tax will boost premiums by more than $7,000 over a decade.

The report notes that a number of states have already imposed requirements on health coverage and the result has been fewer choices and higher premiums.

In New York, for example, a 30-year-old male paid an average of $1,200 a year in annual premiums in 1993, but one month after the state passed Obamacare-like reforms, premiums soared to $3,240.

At the time Washington State passed similar reforms, 19 insurance carriers wrote policies for state residents. Within six years, only two carriers remained in the state.

According to the report, even the left-leaning Center for American Progress acknowledged that “Massachusetts along with several other northeastern states passed insurance market reforms similar to those in the Affordable Care Act, eliminating or restricting the ability of insurance companies to discriminate against the ill either in prices or coverage exclusions. The result in each state was very high non-group insurance prices.”

The congressional report also warns, as others have previously, that Obamacare’s requirement that insurers cover pre-existing conditions will allow many relatively healthy Americans to delay buying insurance until medical attention is needed, thereby leaving less healthy individuals in the insurance pool and raising premiums.

The report concludes: “Taking into account empirical evidence from past state-level experiences, as well as future projections, upon implementation Obamacare will make coverage dramatically more expensive and un-affordable for individuals and families.

“In short, Obamacare breaks its core promise to make healthcare coverage affordable as Americans across the country swallow higher premiums. For young adults to middle-class families, higher premiums will soon be the harsh reality of Obamacare.”

FACTS YOU HAVE TO SEARCH FOR.

This will be a first for my blog. I just read this I decided to post it immediately. This will be the first time I have posted two items on the same day. The Texas Public Policy Foundation published this today and I hope every American will have a chance to see facts that will not be included in the news media. I hope you will share it with everyone you can, as soon as you can.   I urge you to sign up to receive this publication at TexasPolicy.com, a link is at the end of this article.

Americans Getting Paid Not to Work Growing Far Faster Than Taxpayers.

The Federal government announced the new, official unemployment rate today: 8.1 percent, down from 8.2 percent. Far fewer jobs were added in April than expected, 115,000, so the official rate declined slightly because more people stopped looking for work.

The workforce participation rate is now at its lowest rate in 30 years with 63.6 percent of adults who could work actually working.

When people can’t find work, they adjust. Families spend less. Children move in with parents. Some people seek additional training to improve their marketable skills. And, some former workers apply for various forms of public assistance, such as unemployment compensation, food stamps, or welfare. But, since the historic welfare reforms of 1996, welfare for able-bodied adults is generally limited to five years (except in California, where they’ve always sought an exemption). This appears to have caused a shift to other forms of public welfare.

The number of Americans drawing checks from the Federal government via Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income Program swelled from 7.0 million in FY 2007 to an estimated 8.0 million in FY 2012, with the growth rate in the program doubling at the onset of the recession. This program is expected to cost the taxpayers about $52 billion in FY 2012.

Similarly, the number of Americans suddenly finding themselves “disabled” enough to receive Disability Insurance benefits from Social Security is projected to swell to 11 million in FY 2012, with applications rising more than 5 percent in 2010 alone.

Since the formal end of the recession in June 2009, the number of new people entering the Disability Insurance Program, 4.7 million, is double the growth in non-farm payrolls, 2.3 million.

In 1975, 1.33 percent of working age adults received Disability Insurance payments from the U.S. Today, the rate of officially disabled Americans of working age has soared to 7.1 percent.

Given all the advancements in workplace safety and ergonomic design, are Americans really 5.4 times more likely to be truly disabled than they were 37 years ago? Or, are government incentives not to work, combined with an economy slowed by overregulation, making us “disabled”?

FACTS ARE FACTS

By LIZ PEEK, The Fiscal Times

August 10, 2011

How can the United States be so divided when everyone is working from the same numbers? It’s a fair question, especially since most of today’s raucous national debate is about budgets and deficits – not about war, or corruption, for instance, which would not be so easily quantifiable.  Of course, not everyone interprets numbers in the same way; “How to Lie with Statistics” is not just a book title.

The U.S. will never solve its debt and deficit problems unless we face reality.  Some of the most popular (and most questionable) talking points used by Democrats will have to go – as will countervailing arguments from Republicans. Here’s a reasoned take on a few of the most frequently garbled arguments making headlines these days.

Myth: The Left proclaims that President Obama “inherited” the deficit crisis, and that it stemmed from the Bush tax cuts, two wars and the passage of the Medicare drug program. George W. Bush did indeed stomp out the budget surplus he inherited from President Clinton. However, it was mainly the economic downturn in 2008 that led to our escalating deficits. 

Reality: During most of Bush’s tenure, our deficits were under 3.5 percent of GDP — a level well within the country’s means and not so far off the historical average since 1960 of 2.3 percent.  The trend worsened as President Obama took office. Fiscal 2009 (for which Bush reasonably takes the blame) recorded a deficit of $1.4 trillion, or 10 percent of GDP, as outlays spiked to ward off the recession and receipts tumbled. However, Republicans note that it is the ongoing increase in spending since then, and projected in the years ahead, that has resulted in our recent debt downgrade.

In the FY 2011 budget, spending is projected to rise every year of the next ten.   Americans might have pictured the giant $800 billion stimulus program as a “pig in a python” that would cause spending to balloon and then recede; unfortunately, we will see no such thing.  President Obama has allowed considerable growth in the federal full time and contractor workforce to an all-time high, and expanded numerous programs.

Longer term, entitlement outlays threaten our outlook. Standard & Poor’s noted last fall that unless the government initiates reforms, Social Security and Medicare will literally eat us alive. By 2035, age-related pensions, Social Security, Medicare and other payments will account for 16.3 percent of GDP, up from 10.8 percent in 2010. If no actions are taken, debt will climb to 229 percent of GDP by 2035, and our debt will have been downgraded to “speculative grade.” A sobering outlook, to be sure.

Myth: Another favorite liberal narrative is that corporations don’t pay taxes. This notion emerges from a couple of studies that have been widely misconstrued. Specifically, one 2008 GAO study reported that 55 percent of U.S. companies paid no federal income tax “during at least one year in a seven-year period it studied.” That factoid has quickly morphed into “more than half of all corporations pay no taxes.”

Reality: Another more revealing study indicates that corporate taxes have been declining as a percent of GDP, even as corporate profits have actually risen. This is a worrisome trend. Taxes collected from corporations accounted for less than 11 percent of federal revenues in the last decade, down from nearly 30 percent in the 1950s. The majority of lost corporate revenues stems from myriad tax breaks offered by the government.  Many of these allowances are out of date and should be reconsidered as part of comprehensive tax reform. Large tax breaks for prosperous corporate farms, ethanol producers and oil producers may not make sense. 

Myth: One of the most controversial talking points has to do with our progressive tax code. When President Obama talks about the wealthy in the country “paying their fair share,”  he has never said what “fair” looks like, but resorts instead to the suggestion that the wealthy should pay “a little more.”

Reality: Forty-seven percent of all Americans pay no federal income taxes. In 2008 the top 10 percent of earners accounted for 70 percent of all federal income tax revenue, which would appear fairly progressive.

Myth: Many on the left have argued that we should not cut government spending, suggesting that every dollar goes to programs essential to the survival of the United States. A recent New York Times editorial that said meeting the demand for an additional $1.2 trillion in spending cuts over the next ten years will require “crippling basic functions.”  

Reality:  Does anyone really believe that our $4 trillion annual budget does not include $100 billion of projects and programs that can be eliminated? It is an absurd notion, contradicted by no less an authority than the Office of Management and Budget. In a 345-page report published in March, analysts identified duplicative programs that Senator Tom Coburn estimates could save $100 billion annually. Included in the list were 56 programs dedicated to financial literacy and 47 offering job training. An effort to reduce these wasteful undertakings would cheer Americans greatly. 

We are in trouble, and it is time for both the left and right to discard the tired poll-tested canards that now pass as “truth” and face facts. We have work to do.

AMERICAN ROYALTY-PART 5

Some republicans in the Senate recently showed some common sense and leadership that is refreshing. Someone in Washington finally acknowledged that the people are fed up with irresponsible spending. They actually blocked the pork laden “omnibus” spending bill and a few actually promised to eliminate “earmarks” in the future.

“Earmarks” are actually a way to hide ridiculous expenditures that are promised to those in their local districts or States so they can get re-elected forever. Another way to elevate themselves to “Royalty” status that we have been revealing.

It was sick to see the Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman, Daniel Inouye D-Hawaii seek support for the “Oinker” from some of the republicans like Thad Cochran R-Mississippi, Robert Bennett R-Utah, and Kit Bond R-Missiouri among others to try to muster 60 votes necessary to stop a filibuster that Jim Dement R-South Carolina and others including some democrats had promised. He was in a hurry as some of his old republican cronies like Bennett, Bond and George Voinovich were not returning to the Senate next year and were immune to worrying about re-election.

Even though Inouye’s measures would have replaced a slightly less expensive bill than the one passed by the House of Representatives. The House bill did not contain earmarks like road and agriculture reasearch projects, water treatment plants and grants for local anti-drug programs. House democrats would have jumped at a chance to accept the Senate version that had $80 million in grants to States and Indian Tribes to preserve pacific salmon and 13 million in clean water grants for Alaska native villages and other rural areas.

The methods utilized by both democrats and republicans to wait until the last two months of a term to pass spending of anything is deplorable. They sit on their hands for 22 months naming courthouses and planning for re-election before they go to work. Why do they do this every cycle?  Because we let them. Who is to blame, we are because we allow them to maintain “Royalty” status.

January will bring an opportunity for the newly elected republican majority in the US House of Representatives. The new Speaker, John Boehner R-Ohio will be the most powerful person in Washington for the next two years. We have all read how the House can stop some of the madness by just not funding the programs like “Obamacare”.

The newly elected majority in the House of Representatives and the real Senate conservatives will be able to even do more by eliminating useless government agencies. Why do we have a Department of Energy and Education for two? They do nothing but interfere with the States and were non-existent for some 200 years. How many of you common people really think that the republicans will actually do anything drastic to reduce the Washington power mismanagement? I don’t think they will do anything significant, just enough to get re-elected. Until we throw them all out and start a third party, nothing will change in the power structure because none of them want to!

For anyone else who is fed up with the “Royalty” status we have in Washington, do something. If you feel incapable then send me any information you feel will help and I will publish verified factual data. I know that I am just one 80-year-old veteran who is fed up, but at least I’m trying my best to stir up as many as I can.

My next part of this series will be to show some more inequities that the “Royal” have over us common Folks. Please send me any examples you might have read to show the differences. I read every article I can find to create these messages.
