While everyone is busy covering this massive healthcare reform, the new paths of destruction the administration are planning for include immigration and fiscal reform.
So, what is immigration reform? According to the the Huffington Post, immigration reform is a solution to lower government deportation. That results in less broken up families, which we can all agree is a strong argument. However, remember that hot little buzzword back in Bush’s presidency? It read something like, “Amnesty”? That would be the key around the legislation for immigration reform. If you’re not familiar with immigration amnesty, here’s a support group’s page, read up on it. To quote the key point from their front page, “The measure, the biggest rewrite of U.S. immigration law since 1986, would offer 12 to 20 million illegal immigrants a path to citizenship while tightening the border with Mexico and creating a guest-worker program to help employers fill low-paying jobs.” If you have been listening to Alex Jones lately, he has been warning us about the problems with amnesty; mainly the issue that the illegal citizens will be able to take advantage of this nation’s resources at the level equal of legal citizens, while getting less paperwork. He claims the Austin police are being trained to let immigrants off more easy than citizens. As for here, the police are douchebags to everybody, regardless of race, gender, legality, etc. Everybody’s equal in their eyes.
After this, it’s time for fiscal reform. Now, this may shock you; but I actually want fiscal reform! Yeah, I have a feeling that this administration won’t go for that. Instead of ending the Fed, this administration would probably extend its powers. I am happy to report, however, that bills S. 604 and HR 1207 (the bills that call for a public audit of the Fed) are still in committee, they haven’t died yet. Anyway, the fiscal reform this administration calls for would probably include expanding entitlement programs while creating new ones or rename stimulus bills as jobs bills. In other words, a fundamental change (read:expansion) in redistribution of wealth. As a result, taxes will go up for the rich and business class, hardly anything will happen with the poor, and much of this money will be used to fund government projects and go toward companies with lucrative government contracts, like this no-bid USAID contract for a consulting firm. Most of the money won’t even go to the poor.
