I am still waiting for someone to explain how we even know "what" they pay in the form of taxes, since we don’t even know "who" they are.

How are they paying into Social Security when they don't have a number? Using someone elses number?

Yeah, I would like to see some proof of that also. Wouldn't that mean that the only benificiary of these SS funds paid in by illegals would be for those Americans whose SS number was stolen and used by them? How is this covering the illegal aliens social costs based on that?

I was wondering that as well. All types of fraud could be assessed to the true SS holder jeopardizing their benefits. How does any of this pay back all the costs to this country as well as individuals?

It doesn’t. Think of their paltry wages and their number of exemptions, and then compute the taxes. Compare that to the costs associated with ER visits, dialysis, pre/postnatal, etc. It’s not rocket science. Some sources say Obama will try to push for amnesty in his SOTU address tonight, touting the tax “benefits” of legalizing illegals.

I know what you mean. I’m sure lots of people would feel like throwing something (or up).

I don't think You will be alone.....

The " Tick, Tick. Tick " barometer is about to rise..... I'm curious as to where the "Narcissist In Chief" will place the blame for the failure of his "hopey changy" thing...

How many times will he mention " I " and "the previous admin" ?

My guess is that "I" will win by a landslide....
