I think it's not necessarily a terrible thing for guest workers to be paying into entitlement programs from which they cannot draw, but this should be a piece of a great compromise on immigration. We should allow many workers to have legal status here in order to help pay for the entitlement programs that are underfunded (mainly medicare). But right now it's just a blip in the system that happens to exist, and I find it hard to argue in favor of maintaining any single thing that screws illegal immigrants over, considering they're among the most screwed-over groups in our society as it is.

If you're actually concerned about entitlement program funding, the higher birthrate of immigrants is of dramatically greater benefit to these programs than payroll taxes among current illegal immigrants. But that's the kind of thing that would only be relevant in a good-faith debate about the subject, which currently does not exist.
I would be more interested on focusing on the companies that are filing fraudulent employment papers to highlight the problem that immigrants solve than worrying about them taking advantage of entitlements they've paid for.

It's an easier conversation to have when it turns out not having immigrants is going to raise the prices of everyday items because labor costs suddenly go up.

Quote:
A top House Democratic investigator has agreed not to throw any surprise subpoenas in his oversight of the Trump administration, in a rare bipartisan gesture toward Republicans.

At a panel organizing meeting late last week, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler agreed to consult with his GOP counterpart for two days before issuing a subpoena to force witnesses to testify.
Hmmm.

Quote:
The new process reflects a transparency that the GOP previously ignored. Republicans changed House rules several years ago so that their panel chairmen could unilaterally subpoena witnesses without consulting with or even notifying Democrats.
lol.

Also missed opportunity to draw Trump with rippling back muscles.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I think the guy to the right is Mueller with a Stalin tattoo. Stone is with Nixon, who is actually good now, and Mueller is a commie.*

If correct, probably clearest example yet how far down the rabbit hole these “Trump conservatives” have gone that they side with an obvious, and proud of it, slime ball like Roger Stone over Mueller who checks every box that “conservatives” claim to stand for.

Lol, at first I thought that was Manafort and Stone in a prison shower or something.

It must be Muller though. Are they having a three way with Stone's wife?
