The wrangling over illegal immigration continues. Currently at issue is whether they should be able to collect Social Security on wages paid in before they were legal citizens, when the documents that got them the job may be forged or stolen.
The Senate voted yesterday to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment -- even if the job was obtained
through forged or stolen documents
Lovely. The idiots in the Senate have chocolate pudding for brains.
They've decided to ignore one illegal act and offer these folks the equivalent of amnesty for sneaking into the country illegally. But now, they are basically granting amnesty again, this time for the real felonies of Identity Theft and Forgery.
What's more, they fail to bear in mind that multiple illegal aliens oftentimes appropriate the same stolen Social Security number. So now, my generation has absolutely no chance in hell of ever collecting a red cent from all of our legal contributions, because the system is going to be wide open to fraud and end up paying out to multiple parties for the same contributions. That "lockbox" is going to empty faster than a keg at a Packers' tailgate party.
How are they going to prove whether it was Juan, Jose, Maria, or Miguel who worked at that factory back in 2002? I am willing to bet dollars against dogturds that none of the illegals will be able to prove their own employment by way of check stubs.
So, in typical government red-tape stupidity, all claims will be paid. Why don't we just surrender now and become the United States of Insolvency?
The Senate doesn't have the collective brain that God gave a goat.
