Stimulus Bill Gives Checks to Illegals

Posted by iusbvision on January 29, 2009

Associated Press:

The legislation, which would send tax credits of $500 per worker and $1,000 per couple, expressly disqualifies nonresident aliens, but it would allow people who don’t have Social Security numbers to be eligible for the checks.

Undocumented immigrants who are not eligible for a Social Security number can file tax returns with an alternative number. A House-passed version of the economic recovery bill and one making its way through the Senate would allow anyone with such a number, called an individual taxpayer identification number, to qualify for the tax credits.

A revolt among GOP conservatives to similar provisions of a 2008 economic stimulus bill, which sent rebate checks to most wage earners, forced Democratic congressional leaders to add stricter eligibility requirements. That legislation, enacted in February 2008, required that people have valid Social Security numbers in order to get checks.

Tammy Bruce on Bush Derangement Syndrome

Posted by iusbvision on January 29, 2009

Poor Dr. Marc Hill is out of his league in this interview. Tammy Bruce eats PhD’s for breakfast and this clip is a small example. I like Marc Hill because he is the first to admit that he is a far left guy and argues with that in mind. Most leftists aren’t that direct. Tammy Bruce is a former president of the National Organization for Women who is a liberal with a hawkish and a libertarian streak. I adore Tammy not just because she is obviously just dreamy, but she is a powerful intellect who has aristotilian like logic and clarity.
