One may recall that Fact Check claims to be a nonpartisan, nonprofit “consumer advocate” for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in US politics. It may be possible that in 2009, Fact Check was being honest as they sought to debunk the rumor … but it is equally possible that Fact Check Organization, which is part of the Annenberg Public Policy Center, is actually a communist front organization that intentionally lied to the American people.
Of course, no one is surprised that these schemes add to our explosive debt and encourage a culture of dependency. Increased debt is bad enough; worse when there is a vigorous campaign to encourage fraud among illegal aliens. Are we no longer a nation of laws?
As a case in point, reporter Steve Harrigan tells us about 50-year old illegal alien Maritza Nelson, a single mother living in Florida who lives chiefly on what she can get from state and federal assistance programs, including government-funded housing, $700 a month from the Social Security Administration, food stamps, and Medicaid benefits. Additional benefits include supplemental “entitlements” to help defray the cost of water and utilities.
To assist people like Nelson, Harrigan reports that “expert navigators” help citizens —illegal or otherwise— to locate programs that might apply to them, and then apply for benefits on line. Other illegal aliens, such as Belci Encinosa (Healthy Mothers/Healthy Babies), want these needy persons to “get every penny they deserve" from programs that provide rental assistance, supplemental nutritional assistance programs (SNAP), and free medical care.
What is going on here?
Not long ago, we learned that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is providing Spanish language fliers to the citizens of Mexico, in Mexico, offering them clever suggestions about how to take advantage of American’s new welfare state. Liberals responded by saying the report was completely unfounded. No surprise, the liberals were lying. The USDA does in fact provide these fliers to citizens in Mexico, and as demonstrated by Steve Harrigan’s report, illegal aliens are in living free of charge at the expense of the American taxpayer.
So here it is in a nutshell. The United States government, under the direction of its Marxist president, is determined to make fundamental changes to the United States of America. He will transform this country from a free market economy to a socialist state. In order to achieve this, he has worked tirelessly to create a society that is heavily dependent upon the national treasury. And, in order to do that, he has eased immigration restrictions, ordered border patrol organizations to be less attentive in their duties, which actually encourages illegal immigration, and to help achieve this, authorized the USDA to help illegal aliens qualify for welfare benefits.
There is nothing responsible about such an endeavor. It even surpasses the incredible. That isn’t the worst of it … the worst of it is that the American people are not flooding Congress and state legislatures with highly pissed off demands to change direction.
