Remember when ObamaCare was going to CREATE jobs? When unemployment was good for economic growth (“Unemployment Benefits ‘One of the Most Important Stimuli for the Economy”) well now we have the latest in the Democrat Ideological Job Creation Myths.
Illegal Aliens!! (aka Future Welfare Voting Democrats).
When asked whether legalizing illegal immigrants would help unemployed Americans, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D.-Md.) responded by pointing to testimony from the director of the Congressional Budget Office that Van Hollen said indicated enactment of the Senate immigration bill (which gave illegal aliens a “path to citizenship’) would “reduce the deficit and increase long-term economic growth.”
Van Hollen responded: “I think what we need to do is pass comprehensive immigration reform, and I just came from a hearing with the non-partisan director of the Congressional Budget Office, who testified that if you passed the Senate bipartisan bill, you will reduce the deficit and increase long-term economic growth in the United States,” Van Hollen replied.
This would be the latest in the “CBO says…” line of Democrat ‘arguments’ for their ideological needs.
Mind you ever since the CBO gave the Dems the green light on ObamaCare (with fake the false numbers provided by the Dems) the CBO has been whithering bad to the Democrats.
But THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA.
So the CBO is good when they agree with The Agenda, and are ignored when they don’t.
Just like most Democrat Agenda items. The ‘evidence’ is always in their favor and any evidence to the contrary is a lie, “racist” or some other form of contempt is heaped upon it.
It’s all too predictable really.
After all, Foster parents have the ability to collect more than $7,400 per month, considering that they can house six immigrants at any given time.
So Illegal Aliens are a stimulus. Just like Unemployment. So what we need is even more of them!
Don’t worry, be happy. We are from the Government and we are here to help you! 🙂
