It Pays To Be In The Country Illegally - Literally

A report in the Washington Times says that President Obama's so-called "executive amnesty" will give illegal Democrats aliens the right to file and claim Earned Income Tax Credit for the last three years - even if they did not pay taxes.

“IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress on Wednesday that even illegal immigrants who didn’t pay taxes will be able to claim back-refunds once they get Social Security numbers under President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty,” the Times reported. “The revelation — which contradicts what he told Congress last week — comes as lawmakers also raised concerns Mr. Obama’s amnesty could open a window to illegal immigrants finding ways to vote, despite it being against the law.”

So under President Obama's order, people who are not even supposed to be here can collect money from the government that they didn't earn, paid for by the money you and I earned. 

And that's not the only perk Obama has given to illegals. Once illegals are allowed to obtain Social Security numbers and get driver's licenses it will be easier for them to register (illegally) to vote. In fact, many driver's license offices throughout the country ask applicants if they want to register to vote when they are getting their licenses. 

Kansas Secretary of State Kris W. Kobach says it has happened before and that this will cause it to occur even more.

“It’s a guarantee it will happen,” Mr. Kobach said.

Of course, Democrats say that voter fraud and voting by illegals doesn't happen - regardless of the many cases that have been prosecuted. 

In other news, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg said that she had been drinking a little prior to the State of the Union address during which she was seen dozing. (President Obama perhaps thought she was bowing to him...)

"The audience for the most part is awake, because they're bobbing up and down, and we sit there, stone-faced, sober judges. But we're not, at least I wasn't, 100 percent sober," Ginsburg said while speaking at George Washington University. "I vowed this year, just sparkling water, stay away from the wine, but in the end, the dinner was so delicious, it needed wine," she added.

My guess is she needed the wine because she remembered where she was going after dinner. But that's just my opinion - I could be wrong.
