Re: “New Trump Plan Would Restrict Green Cards for Immigrants Who Use Public Funds

John, do you really read the Washington Examiner? That article is about undocumented immigrants. Also it claims costs of $25k a year in NY for each person who is NOT ELIGIBLE for any of those services.

If you want to talk about the undocumented workers (net one million LESS in the US from Mexico over the last 10 years), they pay the same state and local and federal taxes as the rest of us. In FICA taxes alone they pay billions of which they never will see a penny because again, they are NOT ELIGIBLE:

Re: “New Trump Plan Would Restrict Green Cards for Immigrants Who Use Public Funds

I guess Trump doesn't want immigrants taking those precious Walmart jobs! Don't you have to be on welfare to afford to work there?

$6.2B a year in our tax money going into Corporate Walmart coffers! But nevermind corporate welfare - let's blame immigrants instead!

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Why I Didn't Report

Why can't Republicans field a candidate for the US SUPREME COURT who doesn't lie constantly? Is it because the current party only wants political hacks who pledge absolute fealty to the Orange God of Rape Culture?

I guess when you have to hold the belief that BIRTH CONTROL IS ABORTION to get nominated, you're already 1/2 way there.

Re: “Arizona Republicans Are All In For "Education Reform." Charter School Reform? Not So Much.

I like entrepreneurship as much as the next guy, but $20M while the teachers of our kids need to take a second job seems off somehow.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Living Pura Vida

Too bad we're spending all our tax dollars on the drug wars and creating cartels and military dictatorships like the one ruining Honduras now.

Nothing left over to process amnesty claims I guess: The UN reports 30M refugees seeking asylum in the world and in no year in the last decade has the US accepted over 30k.

Re: “When Democrats Turned Tail, And Kept Running

Or maybe the voters know what the rest of the world figured out decades ago: Universal health care saves lives and $$.

This Koch-funded study shows Medicare-for-All saves trillions while expanding care and while also covering the remaining 50M Americans:
