Illegal Aliens get Social Security

So today I received an email from one of my family members asking to sign an email petition list against the bill being approved. Below is an cut of the email and of course I had to reply all to the email but I wanted to see if I could get more peoples comments by blogging on the same subject.


It does not matter if you personally like or dislike Obama. You need to sign this petition and flood his e-mail box with e-mails that tell him that, even if the House passes this bill, he needs to veto it. It is already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If the government gives benefits to 'illegal' aliens who have never contributed, where does that leave those of us who have paid into Social Security all our working lives?

As stated below, the Senate voted this week to allow 'illegal' aliens access to Social Security benefits.
Attached is an opportunity to sign a petition that requires citizenship for eligibility to that social service.

Instructions are below. If you don't forward the petition and just stop it, we will lose all these names.

If you do not want to sign it, please just forward it to everyone you know.

Thank you!

To add your name, click on 'forward'. Address it to all of your email correspondents, add your name to the list and send it on.

When the petition hits 1,000, send it to

PETITION for President Obama:

Dear Mr. President:
We, the undersigned, protest the bill that the Senate voted on recently which would allow illegal aliens to access our Social Security. We demand that you and all Congressional representatives require citizenship as a pre-requisite for social services in the United States .

We further demand that there not be any amnesty give n to illegal aliens, NO free services, no funding, no payments to and for illegal immigrants " href="" target="_blank">gov%3E>

And now for my comments.

This is a good thing if you think about it. First off illegal aliens now aren't paying taxes at all so our money is going outside the US. To be eligible for social security you have to pay taxes and you have to have worked at least 40 quarters full-time in your life. Then if you finally meet the age cutoff you can receive social security funds.

Consider it this way. The government is giving social security money away as an incentive for illegal aliens to pay taxes. I don't like anymore than any other American that illegal aliens are taking our jobs but if they are going to I want them to pay taxes just like I do. So to put it in a nutshell the government is giving away 5 dollars to make 10 or 15 dollars.

Until SBI Net, built by Boeing, comes online fully operational to prevent illegal aliens from crossing the border, let them pay taxes and for their courtesy we'll give them social security.

Here's a link to my blog. I'm going to post this same message up there but remove the names.

So everybody post up their comments. I'd like to hear what everyone has to say.
