Great source and very credible and unbiased.
Exactly this.

You said immigration. We aren't talking about plain ole immigration we are talking about illegal immigration. Amnesty isn't for legal immigrants as they don't need it. No one that I know of objects to legal immigration. Nice spin though but typical.

Anything truthful & fact finding thats against this bill you think is bogus.

If you you've taken math then you would know this would worsen the deficit.

The CATO Institute disagrees with your assessment - and I suspect those folks are a LOT smarter and better informed than YOU.

I am trying to figure out what exactly was purportedly figured out.

On the one hand the OP links to a statement from the Heritage Foundation saying that the deficit would worsen and on the other s/he links to the following, pretty much negating the original statement.

"Cato Institute, in a website posting over the weekend, said that the Heritage Foundation study was an update of a "fatally flawed" analysis it issued in 2007."



It would seem to me, based on the whole "fatally flawed" bit, that the Heritage Foundation probably hasn't figured out much of anything.
Rather thin research on which to build the OP's thesis, though it does somewhat bolster mine regarding how much of some of these articles people actually read.
