Obama kills tax cut deal because it won't benefit illegal immigrants


This goes beyond being an ideologue to just being petty.

from Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama quietly killed a draft tax-cut because the GOP leadership wouldn’t agree to his demand that valuable tax breaks be given to millions of illegal immigrants, according to a Politico article about the secret negotiations.

Just before Thanksgiving, “the deal fell apart just as it seemed to be coming together… [because] Republicans worried undocumented immigrants targeted by [Obama’s Nov. 21 amnesty] would begin claiming the credits,” Politico reported.

The GOP leadership’s reluctance to award tax-breaks to illegals suggests top leaders may use the required December budget bill to deny funds to operate Obama’s promised amnesty. So far, GOP leaders have not said if they will block the amnesty funds — despite growing GOP grassroots pressure — partly because Democrats are threatening to block the complete budget if the amnesty is blocked.

The now-dead tax bill, dubbed the “tax extenders package,” is a grab-bag of tax breaks that are usually passed late in every congressional session. If the bill is not passed, businesses and voters will both face tax increases.

This year’s draft bill was expanded to include more tax-breaks for businesses, and was reputedly valued at more than $400 billion over 10 years.

Politico’s report said Democratic senators initially offered to approve the GOP’s demand for business-boosting tax cuts if the GOP agreed to extend the popular Earned Income Tax Credit for poor Americans.

But GOP leaders stepped back from the deal because they recognized that Obama planned to award the EITC money to illegals covered by his Nov. 21 executive order.

Obama would rather hurt the majority of businesses and individual citizens in the United States rather than give an inch in his support of illegal immigrants.



Obama amnesty plan gives businesses $3,000 incentive to hire illegals rather than US born workers


It’s almost like he’s trying to hurt the US jobs market…

from Washington Times:

Under the president’s new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.

President Obama’s temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare’s health exchanges.

Under the Affordable Care Act, that means businesses who hire them won’t have to pay a penalty for not providing them health coverage — making them $3,000 more attractive than a similar native-born worker, whom the business by law would have to cover.

Obamacare + Amnesty = a disaster for the American economy. 


Amnesty for illegal immigration: Reagan vs. Obama

Liberals are using a whole lot of false equivalence to paint conservatives as being unreasonable on immigration by saying what Obama is doing is no different from Reagan.

There’s a huge difference between signing and implementing a law passed in Congress (constitutional, whether the law is actually constitutional or not is another issue) and ordering amnesty by executive fiat (unconstitutional).

I wasn’t sure which fruit represents Obama better (the corrupted version of the right way, or something totally different/unrelated), so I included both. Feel free to leave a comment and give your two cents. :-)

VIDEO: Illegal immigrant tells CNN that Obama inspired her to sneak across the border


Apparently, Emperor Obama thinks that he can simply Gruber the American people into forgetting about massive flood of illegal aliens on the Southern Border.  We can just take him at his word that the border is “more secure than ever.”  

Last night, CNN interviewed an illegal alien who said Obama’s lawlessness inspired her to sneak across the border.

here’s the video:

Brace yourselves, America.  There’s a whole lot more of this kind of flagrant lawbreaking on the way.

Here We Go Again: GOP Threatens Government Shutdown Over Immigration

The GOP is at it, again! Reuters reports that right-wingers are plotting yet another government shutdown as an expression of their angst. Last year, led by Ted Cruz, Republicans threw a temper tantrum and displayed that they were willing to allow our nation to unravel because of their dissatisfaction with the Affordable care Act. This fit of rage cost our country billions of dollars and had numer…
