    If you think the war in Iraq is costing too much


    If you think the war in Iraq is costing us too much, please read the following:
    We have been hammered with the propaganda that it is the Iraq war, and the war on
    terror that is bankrupting us. Following are 14 additional reasons why the American taxpayer is being bankrupted. Included the URL's for verification of all the following facts.
    1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments. Verify at: FAIR: Immigration and Welfare
    2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens. Verify at: Center for Immigration Studies
    3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens. Verify at: Center for Immigration Studies
    4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally, and they cannot speak a word of English! Verify at: http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP.../01/ldt.0.html
    5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies. Verify at CNN.com - Transcripts
    6. $3 Million dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. Verify at: CNN.com - Transcripts
    7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens. Verify at: CNN.com - Transcripts
    8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers. Verify at:http://premium.cnn.com/TRANSCIPTS/0610/29/ldt.01.html
    9. $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens. Verify at:CNN.com - Transcripts
    10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two and a half times that of non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US. Verify at: CNN.com - Transcripts
    11. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our Southern Border. Also, as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin and marijuana, crossed into the U. S from the Southern border. Verify at: Homeland Security Report: http://*******.com/t9sht
    12. The National Policy Institute estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period. Verify at: http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute.o...eportation.pdf
    13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances to their countries of origin. Verify at: Wooldridge - How Much Further Into This Nightmare?
    14. The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States. Verify at: www.drdsk.com/articleshtml
    The total cost is a whopping $ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!!
    Are we THAT stupid?
    If this doesn't bother you, then just delete the message. If, on the other hand, it does raise the hair on the back of your neck, I hopeyou forward it to every elected representative in Washington D.C. - five times a week for as long as it takes to restore some semblance of intelligence in our policies and enforcement, thereof.

    Because deporting them is cruel, inhumane and not American, it's racist and immoral to not want to give everyone a chance....

    Another thing I want to clear up is if Obama does get elected its not just the Rich people that get taxed since we all pay taxes. Every one will get a tax raise.

    CAPITAL GAINS TAX
    MCCAIN
    0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples). McCain does not propose any change in existing home sales income tax.
    OBAMA
    28% on profit from ALL home sales. (How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.)

    DIVIDEND TAX
    MCCAIN
    15% (no change)
    OBAMA
    39.6% - (How will this affect you? If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama becomes president. The experts predict that 'Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market, yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.')
    INCOME TAX
    MCCAIN
    (no changes)
    Single making 30K - tax $4,500
    Single making 50K - tax $12,500
    Single making 75K - tax $18,750
    Married making 60K- tax $9,000
    Married making 75K - tax $18,750
    Married making 125K - tax $31,250
    OBAMA (reversion to pre-Bush tax cuts)
    Single making 30K - tax $8,400
    Single making 50K - tax $14,000
    Single making 75K - tax $23,250
    Married making 60K - tax $16,800
    Married making 75K - tax $21,000
    Married making 125K - tax $38,750
    Under Obama, your taxes could almost double!
    INHERITANCE TAX
    MCCAIN
    - 0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)
    OBAMA
    Restore the inheritance tax
    Many families have lost businesses, farms, ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will only lose them to these taxes.
    NEW TAXES PROPOSED BY OBAMA
    New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 square feet. New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already) New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity) New taxes on retirement accounts, and last but not least....New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other third-world countries!!!

    You think America is any different from any other developed country when it comes to taxes and illegal aliens? Stop complaining. Its pathetic, welcome to how the rest of the world works. Your taxes are still low.

    so in essence, you are saying that the US is screwed up? thanks for that breaking news.

    However, considering who the 2 candidates are, nothing will get better on the illegal immigration front, so we have to help financially elsewhere

    You think youre alone when it comes to tax rises -far from it.
    Look at the countries outside the US that have used tax payers money to bail the banks out.Who is going to pay the price for this for a long long time -the tax payer.

    So dont think youre hard done by.

    Thanks for the detail on the "shadow footprint" of illegal immigration; however, since the sort of ruling-class capitalism we have in this country *requires* a never-ending supply of cheap, expendable labor, illegal immigration to this country will never be meaningfully restricted.

    Agree w/ you on all particulars.
