I should have taken a blood pressure pill before reading this. Too late now, my blood is boiling. This is absolutely outrageous. Now they won't even have to sneak into the US to freeload, we'll just mail them the checks in Mexico. The inmates truly are running the assylum.

You should have also looked for any sort of credibility in the report via the name of the person passing his information on to the reporter...there isn't one.
The Bush administration is negotiating a deal with Mexico to pay SS benefits to people who worked in the US legally, then moved back to Mexico.
This is already being done with several other nations, but Mexico would by far be the largest recipient of payments. The Mexican government pushed for similar benefits for illegal aliens, but the administration refused.
Note the particular choice of words used by the author when he says that the 1996 act had "saved" American taxpayers a certain amount of money.
This money is taken out of people's paychecks who worked here legally, with the understanding that it would be paid back, his phrasing seems to indicate that this is money that belongs to the government, and not to the very people that it is going back to.
