McCAIN SANCTIONS IDENTITY THEFT
Pay attention all you McCaniacs!
Illegals granted Social Security: The Senate voted yesterday to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment -- even if the job was obtained through forged or stolen documents. …
"We all know that millions of undocumented immigrants pay Social Security and Medicare taxes for years and sometimes decades while they work to contribute to our economy," said Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican.
"The Ensign amendment would undermine the work of these people by preventing lawfully present immigrant workers from claiming Social Security benefits that they earned before they were authorized to work in our community," he said. "If this amendment were enacted, the nest egg that these immigrants have worked hard for would be taken from them and their families."
U.S. Senate Has Become a Laughingstock: RUSH: Okay. (sigh) The Senate voted yesterday to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment, even if the job was obtained through forged or stolen documents. In other words, the United States Senate -- now, this will never survive conference with the House, but I don't care. The United States Senate -- if this isn't amnesty, I don't know what the hell it is! We're going to throw out identity theft? Just basically going to sanction identity theft? Just go steal somebody's identity, and their Social Security number, and go get a job, and then earn and pay Social Security benefits, and we find out you did that, no problem! You're still going to get your Social Security benefits after you paid your Social Security taxes, and you know who led the charge on this? Senator McCain.
