I don't know if this has already been around but I've never seen it before.

Looks like it's time to claim refugee status?

Welfare Poem
...
I cross ocean,
poor and broke,
Take bus,
see employment folk.

Nice man treat me
good in there,
Say I need to
see welfare.

Welfare say,
'You come no more,
We send cash
right to your door.'

Welfare checks,
they make you wealthy,
Medicaid it keep
you healthy!

By and by,
I get plenty money,
Thanks to you,
American dummy.

Write to friends
in motherland,
Tell them 'come
fast as you can.'

They come in turbans
and Ford trucks,
I buy big house
with welfare bucks

They come here,
we live together,
More welfare checks,
it gets better!

Fourteen families,
they moving in,
But neighbor's patience
wearing thin.

Finally, white guy
moves away,
Now I buy his house,
and then I say,
'Find more aliens
for house to rent.'
And in the yard
I put a tent.

Send for family
they just trash,
But they, too,
draw the welfare cash!
E verything is
very good,
And soon we
own the neighborhood.

We have hobby
it's called breeding,
Welfare pay
for baby feeding.

Kid's need dentist?
Wife's need pills?
We get free!
We got no bills!

American's crazy!
He pay all year,
To keep welfare
running here.

We think America
darn good place!
Too darn good for
the white man race.
If they no like us,
they can scram,
Got lots of room in Gaza strip & Pakistan .

It is interesting that the federal government provides a
single refugee with a monthly allowance of $1,890.00
and each can also get an additional $580.00 in social assistance for a total of$2,470.00 .

This compares very well to a single pensioner who after contributing to the growth and development of America for 40 to 50 years can only receive a monthly maximum of $1,012.00 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement.

Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees!

Lets send this to all Americans, so we can all be ticked off
and maybe we can get the refugees cut back to
$1,012.00 and the pensioners up to $2,470 00 and enjoy some of the money we were forced to submit to the Government over the last 40 or 50 years.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

Just that alone is about $350.00 more than I get in Social Security benefits. I paid into that all my life.

Heck, where did I go wrong?

CHECKLIST OF FEDERAL BENEFIT PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO DOCUMENTED AND UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS
This is put together on the AFL-CIO web site.

Food Stamps –

Undocumented workers are not eligible. However, New York recently received a waiver from the Department of Agriculture for the Disaster Food Stamp Benefit program. The program does not mention benefit status, and New York is promoting the program as available to all who were affected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Medicaid -

Undocumented workers are only eligible for emergency medical services. However, all immigrants are eligible for the New York Family Health Plan for the next four months. New York has also elected to cover other groups of immigrants, including undocumented pregnant women.

State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)-

A few states have extended SCHIP to “unqualified children.”

COBRA Insurance Coverage –

Both legal and illegal immigrants are eligible for COBRA if they participated in a group health plan with an employer having over 20 employees.

Federal Emergency Management Agency Programs (FEMA) –

Illegal immigrants are limited to receiving non-cash benefits and in-kind services.

Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC) –

Immigrants of any status who are otherwise eligible may receive WIC food supplements.

School Lunch Program –

Immigrant children are eligible for the school lunch program regardless of status.

This comes from the Center for Immigration Studies
Increasing Tax Revenue by Granting Amnesty. As discussed above, our research shows that granting illegal aliens amnesty would dramatically increase tax revenue. Unfortunately, we find that costs would increase even more. Costs would rise dramatically because illegals would be able to access many programs that are currently off limits to them. Moreover, even if legalized illegal aliens continued to be barred from using some means-tested programs, they would still be much more likely to sign their U.S.-citizen children up for them because they would lose whatever fear they had of the government. We know this because immigrants with legal status, who have the same education levels and resulting low incomes as illegal aliens, sign their U.S.-citizen children up for programs like Medicaid at higher rates than illegal aliens with U.S.-citizen children. In addition, direct costs for programs like the Earned Income Tax Credit would also grow dramatically with legalization. Right now, illegals need a Social Security number and have to file a tax return to get the credit. As a result, relatively few actually get it. We estimate that once legalized, payments to illegals under this program would grow more than ten-fold.

From a purely fiscal point of view, the main problem with legalization is that illegals would, for the most part, become unskilled legal immigrants. And unskilled legal immigrants create much larger fiscal costs than unskilled illegal aliens. Legalization will not change the low education levels of illegal aliens or the fact that the American labor market offers very limited opportunities to such workers, whatever their legal status. Nor will it change the basic fact that the United States, like all industrialized democracies, has a well-developed welfare state that provides assistance to low-income workers. Large fiscal costs are simply an unavoidable outcome of unskilled immigration given the economic and fiscal realities of America today.

Keep a sharp eye on Palosi & Reid this year. They WILL try hard to legalize all illegals. Its the best way they can almost guarantee a very large block of voters for themselves.

Regardless of the consequences, that is how they operate.

Yeah and McCain was leading the charge on immigration amnesty.

Talk about another reason we gave the White House away!

Should have gone with Huckabee, IMO.

Or how about McCain and the danged bailouts. He pulled himself off the campaign just so we can have it.

Man he really shot himself in the foot over that. I had no respect for him after that. Him or Bush.

Bush should have vetoed that damned bailout and let the system work itself out. He was truly a big government spender in Republican clothes. There was NOTHING fiscally conservative about him.

Yes, you can sit there and say "Obama is worse" But that changes nothing. Realize that this type of thing was the PRIMARY reason that we gave the White House up.

Conservatives were not BEING conservatives!!!

Yup, agreed. With all respect to his service to the USA, McCain was a poor choice.

I see 2 possible consequences. The first one is actually a good consequence. Many illegal aliens will become legal, and start to pay taxes and then have a vested interest in where their money goes. Most immigrants are hard-working people and will not appreciate social programs taking the money they earn away. In fact, I propose the idea that even given the chance to come clean, many illegal immigrants will remain off the books to ensure their taxes are not taken.

Basically, I see that possibility as a good thing because a PRODUCING segment of society would now vote and have a vested interest. We have been facing a problem in society where the NONPRODUCING segments of society feed off of the PRODUCING segments. This would effectively help the conservative base in some ways. No hardworking immigrant wants to see his money disappear.

But I'm still anti-amnesty for this reason....what disincentive exists in the future for floods of immigration into the U.S.? It's like letting criminals go free and then expecting them to behave in the future. Impossible and ridiculous to not see the negative effects of this.

In the end, I'm not sure what would happen but I don't want to find out.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, granting amnesty would not gain in taxes paid. Making existing programs available to them would actually cost the American taxpayer $6000 to $7000 a year for each one.

Also they do not factor in the extra push caused by more illegals once they realize amnesty is real.

Hell yeah. The cost we pay now because of illegals (especially the southern border sates) is in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Not the only reason, but definitely a very high contributing factor, that California is in the budget crisis they are in, is because of illegals.

The simple act of verifying employment AND enforcing immigration laws would save the tax payer millions upon millions. But, the feel good laws we have in place (both local & Federal), and political correctness prevents that.

Watch Palosi & Reid closely very soon. They need those votes before the next election. They will work hard on it.

I like that Huckabee guy. A straight shooter. I hope he is in the running. He has a chance at it.

Not sure if he could have beat Obama although he would have probably done a bit better than Lefty/Righty (who knows) McCain.
