On spending. At some point, SOMEONE is going to have to address the immigration issue. At least 6 or 8 years ago, Nat. Acad. of Sciences estimated that if NO MORE immig. crossed our borders, we would spend at least 3 TRILLION dollars in the next 10 years on ILLEGAL ALIENS. That was a very low estimate. The Census Bureau estimates that, by 2050, (largely due to illegal immig) Hispanics will be AT LEAST 30% of U.S. population. That, too, is a very LOW estimate. And our politicians talk about REACHING OUT to Hispanics ?
We could save 100s of BILLIONS per year, VASTLY improve (and dramatically cut the cost of) our health, education, and legal systems, annnd -- preserve America for OUR kids -- by NOT giving benefits to ILLEGAL ALIENS .
