Cheap, wage-breaking labor at all pay grades, and the death of employer-paid health plans. That's what they're about, before all else.

I agree with you. I don't think there's anything wrong with breaking the employer/health care connection, but they want the labor market flooded so they can give ultra-low wages. One result will be they get to keep all the money formerly spent on employee healthcare rather than having to use it to attract/keep good workers.

They consider themselves our betters, not just in the economic sense, but in the “better version of the species” sense.

Employers were playing that game 160 years ago. Lewis Tappan (as in, stoves and ranges) once suggested bringing Chinese coolie labor in masses to the U.S. and sending all the black slaves "home" ...... imagine what the civil-rights movement would have been with Chinese rather than black marchers .... and the ChiCom government behind them!

The rationale was, Chinese were cheaper to keep on the job, even though they were "free".

Boehner and the E-Repubs are starting to worry me. The US Chamber of Commerce wants this even if it destroys the country, because they want cheap labor that we are forced to subsidize via Chinese debt, printed diluted money by the Fed, and food stamps, etc.

We need secure borders, mandatory e-verify, and felony charges of taxpayer larceny and prison for those who hire illegals.
