Adjust it all for the inflation that has happened naturally over the years as the legal population as grown and you might could paint a different picture. Besides the fact that EVERY single dollar that is spent to house, feed, educate or give medical care to an ILLEGAL could also be being used to add to our coffers instead of being handed to these ILLEGALS, whether it is $1 or $50 million (and thats just in Cali as you have said) if you took all those moneys that every state has had to spend on these lawbreakers I would dare say we could be in a much better position to care for our own. As for the "system" being broke, well perhaps if we got out from under paying for these Illegal leeches we would have a better fighting chance at helping those who were born here and those that cared enough to come here according to our laws and not just to suck up the "freebies" they feel entitled to, all the while sending their tax free earnings to some other country.

In fact, here is what the 1936 government Social Security pamphlet said: "And finally, beginning in 1949, 12 years from now, you and your employer will each pay 3 cents on each dollar you earn, up to $3,000 a year. That is the most you will ever pay."
Today, the Social Security tax rate is 12.4 percent, which is unknown to most Americans. What happened to their "promise" and how did they fool so many of us? The government is clever in that they required that the employer pay half of the tax, which hides the true cost.

THE system is broken
