You Need to Spend Money to Waste Money
In order to spend wastefully to the point of collapsing our economic system, the government uses our money to enable still more spending. For example,
A Washington group is criticizing the Senate immigration bill because it allows for up to $150 million for organizations to advertise citizenship opportunities and to help illegal immigrants sign up to become citizens.
The nonpartisan Center for Immigration Services calls the money “slush funds” and earlier this week cited several concerns — particularly that the money can go to the same groups that helped craft the legislation and that the spending appears to have no cap or oversight.
The money is divided into two parts. The first is $100 million in grants to public and private nonprofit groups for programs that help people apply for provisional immigrant status, which includes assistance with completing applications and gathering proof of identification.
The other part is $50 million for additional assistance that includes legal help and public-awareness campaigns that tell illegal immigrants about the “eligibility and benefits of registered immigration status.”
That $150 million is only the beginning…
Though the bill guidelines are specific regarding amounts and which types of groups are eligible, the Center for Immigration Services is also concerned about a provision that leaves open the possibility of addition taxpayer funding and another that says the money can be spent on “any other assistance” considered “useful or necessary.”
The beauty of it, from a Cloward-Piven point of view, is that the more illegals they make legal, the bigger the drain on the economy through welfare. Jim DeMint estimates that the Gang of Eight Quislings’ amnesty bill would “cost Americans trillions of dollars.” That is, it would be a death blow not only demographically, but economically.
America’s enemies are on the verge of erasing the country.
