    I agree. Money for illegals and immigrants should be cut to ZERO!

    Yep, however some like the cheap labor that illegals provide. And of course no benefits/unions, etc.

    When there is money left over then spend as much on the new immigrants and illegals as they can. Until then, if they come to this country they are on their own. This is not (should not be) a free ride country for anyone, especially those who are not born here.

    The illegal immigration issue is one of the most divisive issues we face. Neither party can agree on a solution. To make this issue a part of the budget battle would only delay the process.

    Bullshit thread. Total nonsense. America would fall flat on it's obese ass if the Mexicans/Central American labor force was deported - let alone have a HUGE tax revenue problem to deal with. These people pay a myriad of taxes like everyone else. Including federal, state, local, payroll, sales. All this 'they're sucking us dry' right wing propaganda is pure horseshit.

    Beside all that....look at the link this xenophobe posted. One of those cheezy "I hate Mexicans" orgs with white bread clowns like this load pissing in the pond...

    Simply raise the top tax bracket back to SANE levels and this budget deficit 'crisis' goes away, fast. During the 50's and 60's, the top rate wasn't an embarrassing 35% (down to 28% under that asshole Reagan) -- it was 91% during Eisenhower's terms, 70% during the Kennedy-Johnson-Nixon-Carter years (yeah, we all had it really rough in those days, eh?), then Reagan and he twisted little nephew GWB whacked it IN HALF.

    THERE'S your budget issue.

    Btw, this is all well-orchestrated. When you hear these corporatist sell-outs/prostitutes say "Starve the beast" referring to our elected US Government, that ain't no metaphor. They're dead serious.

    And why this zealous effort to eliminate government in all aspects of life besides maybe the military?

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    If you don't believe mass media absolute brainwashing isn't real, and also poses a serious threat to America, tell me how it came to be the very people getting used and abused by the plutocrats constitute the vast majority of those supporting their agenda? Looking at the nation's condition from the outside and not being subject to the mass propaganda we live under, one would say "WTF? Are these people overcome with self-loathing and suicidal tenedencies?". Totally absurd, the entire sitch.

    I saw on TV last night a Moodys guy give Arizona one of the lowest credit ratings of any state.
    How much is due to illegals and how much is due to right wing mismanagement?
