They don't do what's best anymore, they do what they do to get re-elected.
And to go further, the Elite American had their laws written into the books and had the middle class pays for both social services and projects that benifited the wealthiest Americans. Do you think the Federal Hyway system was for the Mr. Middleclass...No Way. It was for business men to transport goods for one side of the country to the other. Yes we all benifited, but we also got to pay for it.

magnify that a hundred times and the middle class-the dwindling middle class is still paying for it.

Ever since the War on Poverty and the beginning of the Welfare State midleclass America has been paying the disproportionate amout.

Which brings us to Our current mess...workers form (mainly)mexico were allowed to come into America virtually uncecked because the Elite needed a cheap labor force...Everyone looked the other way for years. Then illegals started recieveing Social Services-Allowed by the Government- to keep a ready cheap workforce here. And the middleclass Tax payer picked up the tab...not the richest Americans...the Average Joe and Jane.

In the past, after the growing season, Migrants-hence the word-would migrate back home and wait till the next season. But american business needed to have a ready labor force...so the Walfare state was used to tide them over for the next crop or project.

You want real immigration reform and inforcement of our laws?...Start Taxing the beneficiaries of this cheap labor...the Elite rich.
When you raise taxes on the rich to fund all those sevices illegals use, then and only then, will you see real change in this mess we have now.

Why are we so fearful to make the rich pull their fair share...Its their mess. and you get to pay for it.

And Welfare? What a joke, we pay people money to do nothing because they don't have a job?
We need to reform THAT before we go into more spending. And it's proven they spend it on drugs and alcohol anyways, not ALL of them but they've got to at least try and get a job.

We got a lot of stuff to fix before we move forward with this country, Immigration obviously being one of them.
