Presenting Our New Taxpayer Burden Page

NumbersUSA staff has developed a taxpayer burden page. I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the information on it so you can make the point to your friends that amnesty costs up to 70 times more than enforcement. The cost of amnesty to the taxpayer will be $999 billion, while the cost of the October bank bailout (TARP) was a mere $700 billion. The blog that follows may be somewhat taxing on your mind, but it is nothing compared to the taxes on your money that you will be shelling out to the government if amnesty is passed!

Eighty percent of illegal aliens are low-skilled.1 Paul Krugman, the liberal economist and Nobel Laureate has written, "Unfortunately, low-skill immigrants don't pay enough taxes to cover the cost of the benefits they receive.â€
