The Great Social Security Giveaway - to Illegals

The following are the senators who voted to give illegal aliens Social Security benefits:

Arkansas: Lincoln (D) Pryor (D)
California: Boxer (D) Feinstein (D)
Colorado: Salazar (D)
Connecticut: Dodd (D) Lieberman (D)
Delaware: Biden (D) Carper (D)
Florida: Martinez (R)
Hawaii: Akaka (D) Inouye (D)
Illinois: Durbin (D) Obama (D)
Indiana: Bayh (D) Lugar (R)
Iowa: Harkin (D)
Kansas: Brownback (R)
Louisiana: Landrieu (D)
Maryland: Mikulski (D) Sarbanes (D)
Massachusetts: Kennedy (D) Kerry (D)
Montana: Baucus (D)
Nebraska: Hagel (R)
Nevada: Reid (D)
New Jersey: Lautenberg (D) Menendez (D)
New Mexico: Bingaman (D)
New York: Clinton (D) Schumer (D)
North Dakota: Dorgan (D)
Ohio: DeWine (R) Voinovich(R)
Oregon: Wyden (D)
Pennsylvania: Specter (R)
Rhode Island: Chafee (R) Reed (D)
South Carolina: Graham (R)

Since illegal aliens are not entitled to obtain Social Security cards, if they use an SSN to obtain employment, the number is false, forged or stolen from a citizen, legal immigrant or authorized foreign worker. (Although I must say, I have never heard of a legal temporary worker as a victim of identity theft by an illegal alien.)

What the Senators listed above never told us was how they would verify Social Security contributions were actually made by illegal aliens and to which account(s). And how would the minimum of 40 quarters of work be verified? And above all, what impact would it have on the Social Security benefits of the rightful holder of a stolen SSN?

There are already senior citizens who depend on their rightfully earned Social Security benefits for their livelihood who have been victimized by illegal aliens. A wheelchair-bound octogenarian in Colorado had her Social Security cut off several times: she was supposedly working in Colorado, New Jersey and another state - simultaneously! How many more of us will find ourselves stripped of the benefits we paid for?

These Senators who would rather represent the interests of illegal aliens instead of the rights of US citizens - the voters - need to be booted out of office the next time they are up for re-election, whether that's this year, 2008, or 2010. Otherwise, US citizens' Social Security will go to the thieves of our identities.

Social Security is in enough trouble without giving benefits to illegal aliens! Since about half of the "working" illegals are paid under the table and pay no taxes or Social Security whatsoever, and the other half uses phony - or stolen! - SSN, whose Social Security can they collect except what honest citizens paid in?

This is such an outrage! Vote these worthless thieves out of office!

Let's dispell a myth. Illegals allegedly contribute $7 billion to the social security system. Well, half is paid with employer matching and the other is paid with earned income credit. The earned income credit exceeds the social security tax; therefore, we are actually paying these aliens their share of social securty plus another $2 to $3 thousand each.
