SHOCK VIDEO Barney Frank: Illegal Immigrantsí Fraud Helps Social Security
http://fleming-hayes.com ^ | Fleming and Hayes

Posted on 10/16/2011 7:12:17 PM PDT by massmike

This past Saturday afternoon, I had the “pleasure” of attending one of the rarest of political events: A Barney Frank Town Hall meeting in New Bedford, Massachusetts. This was his first town hall meeting since the debacle where he compared his 2010 Democrat challenger, Rachel Brown, to a dining room table.

While the focus of this town hall meeting was to educate his constituents on his desire to slash military funding in order to expand social programs, the best sound bite I caught came from a woman who asked Congressman Frank about the costs of illegal immigrants on society.

I was expecting a well-rehearsed and nauseatingly politically correct response; however, when Frank went on to tell the woman that illegal immigrants who commit Social Security and identity fraud (both felonies) actually help out the Social Security program (because their fraud makes them pay into the system, but they’re not eligible to collect) my jaw almost hit the floor…

The shocking thing to me is that there are people anywhere who lend ANY credibility to what BF says. The people in his district must be among the stupidest on Earth.

Then it’s a failed program if it needs illegals to work. It doesn’t matter though, because we pay for the illegals to live here.

There is no such thing as “paying into Social Security” it is nothing more than an additional federal tax that all goes into the same general tax fund. No separate “lock box”.

It is somewhat scarey that the bozos writing these laws don’t understand what they are doing.

Why should anyone be surprised by this. However, someone might want to ask Barney what they should do when the IRS bills them for unpaid taxes due to that identity fraud.

But nobody should be surprised that Barney is all for criminal activity... One homosexual "partner" of his ran a prostitution ring out of Barney's apartment. And another of his homosexual "partners" was deeply involved in the housing fraud of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac while Barney covered for him.

Hey Bawney, if illegals aren't entitled to any benefits like section 8, how come Obammy’s Auntie Zetuni was living in government housing?

Barney should keep his mouth shut.
But then I wouldn’t want to interfere with his sex life.

Barney should be doing jail time!

ENOUGH!

Well, I am no fan of Frank and this is a stupid way to fund social security. Still, how can anyone argue that people paying in who will never collect help fund social security.

Of course Frank will want to legalize these people and ex-post award them benefits. So if Frank had his way, what he said would be false. But if he does not have his way, he is right.

Oh, they will get SS—count on it. BTW—whatever amount they contribute to SS is more than offset by the other social and educational services they consume. Its a net fiscal loss and a cultural disaster.

How will it happen (e.g., illegals getting SS)? Betcha some Federal judge decrees it.

Aren’t we forgetting the deal the Bush Administration made with Mexico to return unclaimable SS payments to Mexico?

The illegal immigrants are needed to fill the void left by the 10's of millions who have been aborted since 1963!

And Nancy Pelosi supports Abortion because it reduces our long term health care costs!

No they're not. Sometimes in this discussion we forget that around 1.2 million legal immigrants are allowed into the US each year.

Except when its time to describe the burden of income tax on the on top 5%. No one ever considers Social Security as another Federal income tax then.

Bilaterals with those other countries are a two-way street, and they are modern welfare states. Not so Mexico. The devil is in the details.
