    Democrats Choose Immigrant Fraudsters Over Veterans And Unemployed

    Democrats Choose Immigrant Fraudsters Over Veterans And Unemployed

    Conn Carroll | Jan 10, 2014







    Senate Democrats are prepared to let their proposed Unemployment Insurance extension die instead of even allowing a vote on a Republican amendment that could pay for the benefits, and restore some other cuts to veterans benefits, by ending fraudulent tax credit payments to illegal immigrants.

    "We've done everything Republicans wanted," Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said Thursday of his decision to schedule a vote on the UI bill Monday, "Now is the time to fish or cut bait."
    Of course, Reid has not come close to working with Republicans on the issue. Instead, Reid "filled the amendment tree" on the UI bill, a complex Senate maneuver that has the effect of banning all minority amendments.

    Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) had signaled a willingness to work with Democrats on UI by breaking with her party earlier this week to give Democrats the 60 votes they needed to begin debate on the bill. But Ayotte wants a vote on her amendment that would not only pay for the UI extension, but also undo some of the veteran benefit cuts Congress agreed to last year.

    Ayotte's amendment would simply require anyone who wanted to participate in the Additional Child Tax Credit program to supply a Social Security number before they were allowed to collect any checks from the government. According to the Treasury Department, illegal immigrants collected $4.2 billion ACTC funds in 2011 alone.

    According to Ayotte's office, her amendment would save taxpayers more than $20 billion over ten years. That is more than enough to pay for the UI extension and undo some of the veteran benefits cuts made last year.

    Democrats vehemently oppose Ayotte's amendment. "This idea of going after children is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard," Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said in floor debate Thursday, according to The Washington Examiner's Byron York. "I am shocked — I am shocked. You're going to hurt children. You're going to take away food out of their mouths."

    It appears to me that both parties are ignoring, seniors, vets, and the American workers in favor of illegals, welfare abusers and those who simply game the system. The very people who have worked built this country fought /died for this country are being kicked to the curb for a segment of society that believe in socialism, my father had a better word for this groups "bums" and a few other choice words not fit for print here.

    Democrats Save Illegal Alien Tax Credit, Kill Move to Restore Veterans' Pensions

    by Matthew Boyle 9 Jan 2014
    breitbart.com



    Senate Democrats killed an amendment from Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) that would have paid for unemployment benefits for many Americans and replaced recent cuts to veterans’ pensions by closing a tax code loophole that allows illegal aliens to access the Refundable Child Tax Credit.

    The vote failed on Thursday 54-42, with all Republicans but Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) voting for the amendment and against Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) crossed the aisle to vote alongside Republicans in favor of the amendment.

    The amendment would have been to the Unemployment Insurance Extension Bill, S. 1845. On the Senate floor while debating the amendment, Ayotte argued her amendment is “one that would fix fraud in our tax code that really came to light in 2011 in a Treasury IG [Inspector General] report.”

    “What it would simply require is those who seek the additional child tax credit to file a Social Security number just like those who seek the Earned Income Tax Credit in this country,” Ayotte said.

    And why is that? Because the investigations of this tax refund that people receive found that they were claiming it for people who were number one not authorized to work in this country were claiming it and secondly for children that might not even exist. Investigations found that children who don’t even live in this country [were getting the tax credit].

    Ayotte argued on the Senate floor that her amendment would “pay for three months of unemployment insurance for American workers for this issue that we have before this chamber.”

    “It would pay for a fix to the military retirement cuts to the COLA that also impacted our wounded warriors that were done in the most recent budget that were unfair,” Ayotte added. “Members of both sides of the aisle have come together to say we should fix [that] and say it’s unfair. What else would it do? It would reduce the deficit. And what I hear from the Majority Leader is I hear ‘well we’ve heard that idea before.’ Well, we may have heard it before, but we’ve not been allowed a vote on it.”

    While Ayotte made a case for the amendment, Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) argued against it.

    “Now this idea of going after children is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard and I’m shocked,” an irate Boxer said on the Senate floor while shaking her finger up and down. “I am shocked. You’re going to hurt children. You’re going to take away food out of their mouths.”

    At another point, Boxer called on senators to support Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

    “Let us support our leader,” she said. “And let us work through the weekend to come up with a plan. I think the Majority Leader has one.”

    Soon thereafter, Boxer criticized Republicans for wanting to vote on amendments.

    “All they do on that side is complain that their amendments are so important,” Boxer said while throwing both her arms up in the air.
