Welfare taken away from the bottom would leave many going hungry & turning to that crime you think everyone on welfare are doing. Take away Corp. Welfare & Corporations would pay more & maybe a CEO or two may have to cut back to just a million or two per year. Even if they didn't pay a cent in tax there would still be millions not being paid in subsidies & if Corp.s are people why shouldn't they have to pay tax on earnings like other people?
I haven't read the entire thread, and being on over the road driver, I don't have the computer time to get into long discussions.
But what I'll say about this talking point is that it is total and complete bullcrap. It has absolutely no basis in fact at all!!!!!!
About 18 years ago, when Social Security started sending out the estimates of benefits if you were to retire based on your income, I was totally shocked to find out that listed under my social security number was income from a job in Wilkes Barre, Pa. The listed income from that job was 41,000 dollars for the year.
I called the Social Security Administration and said..........I've never been to that are before in my life, and it's 300 miles from where I live.
The response from the person on the phone was that an illegal alien
was using my social security number for employment, and I should do nothing because the money was being added to my account.
I thought to myself...........now what happens when I go to retire, and this fact comes to light?? I told them to stop the activity from the illegal alien
But ya ready for the real kicker?????
My actual income at that time was 12,000 dollars a year.
Just what kind of job, do you think that illegal alien
was doing, that I would have refused to do..........for that kind of money???????
