The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Government Answer To Fix Unemployment: Fire You, Hire Illegal Immigrants


Here's the Nonsense:  The politicians in Washington are trying hard to fix our unemployment problems.  The Senate's immigration bill is designed to help that and other problems in America.

Here's the Horse Sense:  Anyone who's foolish enough to think that most of the politicians even care about unemployment is fooling themself.  The Senate's immigration bill is a perfect example of the destruction these people are bringing upon America.

The Gang of Ocho's immigration deal just keeps on giving with its latest revelation.  It seems that part of the deal would give incentive to American employers to get rid of American citizens and hire illegals (we're supposed to call them amnestied immigrants).  It's a simple plan and, as usual, does nothing for hard working Americans who are struggling to survive these days.

Good ol' Obamacare is once again the tool to ruin the lives of many Americans.  Employers have a penalty of up to $3000 per employee based on whether they provide healthcare coverage for them are given a break in the immigration bill.  That's right, the illegal Democrat immigrants that are hired would give the employers the advantage of avoiding the penalties because if they hire illegals instead of American citizens they would not have to pay the Obamacare penalty.

So, here we once again have our elected leaders pushing through a bill that's lousy for America.  Here are some of the known highlights:
1.)  is 1190 pages that is scheduled to be voted on before anyone reads it
2.)  has a surprise addition to it from Harry Reid that has the feds spending $100 million annually to promote tourism to places like Las Vegas
3.)  provides lesser punishment for crimes of illegals than for American citizens (see this for more info)
4.)  includes an Obama stimulus program
5.)  gives Janet Napolitano authority to cancel building of a border security fence
6.)  and who knows what else since no one's read the whole thing yet

But on top of all that, it's also giving a break to employers that get rid of you and me and hire those immigrants instead of American citizens.  Quite simply, they are incentivizing employers to hire the illegal Democrat immigrants instead of employing legal, hard working American citizens who need jobs.  Sounds like those politicians are really doing a bang up job for us, doesn't it?  

I think it's about time to quit talking about it and just remove the clowns from office in 2014 so we can get back to the America that gives great opportunities to its citizens.
