Amnesty For Illegal Aliens Won’t Add To Deficit

From The Hill:

Gang of Eight: Immigration reform bill won’t add to the nation’s deficit

By Alexander Bolton | May 23, 2013

Members of the Gang of Eight say their immigration reform bill will not add a dime to the nation’s deficit.

Isn’t that the exact same thing Obama said about Obama-Care?

That anticipated Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score will defy conservative policy experts who recently claimed the measure would cost trillions of dollars.

Because giving 11 million (plus) illegal aliens welfare and ‘Earned Income Credit’ and Obama-Care will be offset by all the income taxes they pay.

And never mind that the vast majority of these people will pay no income taxes. Instead, they will get money back from the IRS, via the Earned Income Credit and other scams.

The bill’s authors expect the CBO to release an estimate in early June showing it will be deficit neutral…

Which is what they said about Obama-Care. In fact, they lied so that Obama-Care could be rammed through under ‘budget reconciliation.’ (Which does not require a super majority.) Which makes us suspect that the Senate is thinking about ramming through amnesty the same way.

The budget office has announced it will depart from its usual practice and apply a dynamic scoring model to estimate the costs of the law over the next decade.

In other words, the CBO is changing its own rules to rig the outcome.

This is good news for the Gang of Eight because the model will factor in the expected economic boost provided by millions of new legal workers. Projecting higher tax revenue from increased economic activity will produce a more favorable budgetary outlook. 

Which, again, is a huge lie. These people will not pay income taxes. They will instead get money back from the IRS.

This decision has frustrated some conservative lawmakers because the CBO has consistently used static scoring models, which do not factor in economic growth, to calculate the costs of proposed tax cuts…

The CBO can always be counted on to find a way to get the results that Democrats want.

The Gang of Eight has written its bill in a way to postpone federal benefits for the vast majority of immigrants beyond the next 10 years. This pushes the biggest costs beyond the budget-scoring window used by the CBO…

As we reported yesterday, that provision was just stripped out. The bill that was passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee gives welfare benefits to the newly made legal ‘illegal aliens.’

Maybe someone should tell the CBO about that.

    Why aren’t these men spontaneously combusting for lies like this?

    So yes, send us your crazy Chechnyans with their bombs. Send us your savage Africans with their meat cleavers. Send us your Saudis with their box cutters. Send us more enrichers. We want all the immigrants we can get. Particularly Islamic jihadists. Because we in the West have swallowed the Liberal Death Wish hook, line, and sinker.

    And because the Gang of Eight tells us the results will be deficit neutral (as if anybody in Washington still cared about deficits).

    So here come Chuckie Schumer, Marco Rubio, John “comprehensive reform” McCain, Dickie Durbin, and the rest of the Gang of Eight, ready to twist the knife in a little deeper, twisting it deeper into the belly of Western Civilization, here and there slicing off a thick slab of tender meat, and ready –– eager, actually –– to prepare the feast, to cater it, so to speak, and act as waiters . . . “Here’s a tender piece, sir.” All in Spanish, or Nahuatl, or Urdu, or whatever, the college language courses and travel abroad paying off at last.

    From the point of view of normal people, one of the strangest things about Liberals is that, when given the alternative between supporting the American people or supporting foreigners, immigrants, illegal aliens, terrorists, criminals, and other enemies, the Liberal will always side with the latter groups.

    Liberals will always find a reason or excuse to support any enemy, group, criminal, force, ideology, or cause that threatens to harm or destroy the West and, in particular, the white race, which is the genetic transmitter and tangible representative of Western Civilization.
