Clearly the author of this article prefers to take an optimistic view of this travesty of a bill. Is anyone at the CBO projecting the costs of healthcare subsidies for all of the families and the kids they will be having as well as the kids of those kids? (not to mention Medicaid, Medicare and food stamp costs) How much it will cost us in welfare benefits? Unemployment benefits? Do they really think that the illegals will bother to register legally and pay fines? Why would they, they won't be getting legally pursued and deported so why would they register? This is candyland mentality. News to you all. We have 20+ million here already and they're aren't enough of them to pick the produce. Know why? THEY DON'T WANT THOSE JOBS EITHER. NOW THEY ARE TAKING LANDSCAPING AND FACTORY JOBS!!
