Ted Cruz Exposes The Amnesty Bill… $5000 Penalty For Hiring Citizens Over Legalized Aliens… SERIOUSLY!!!

We can’t possibly expect our Senators to read a 1200 page bill before voting on it. Can we? Well Thank God Ted Cruz read it. Not only did Cruz read it but he schooled anyone who would listen from the Senate floor on Tuesday. Cruz found a loophole that actually penalizes an employer $5000 for hiring a citizen over a legalized alien. Seriously. You can’t make this stuff up. Senator Cruz was quoted as saying:
“I filed an amendment that would have corrected one of the most egregious aspects of the gang of eight bill as it intersects with Obamacare legislation, namely a penalty imposed on U.S. employers for hiring U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents. This bill says if an employer hires a citizen or a legal immigrant, the IRS can impose a $5,000 penalty on that employer. But if the employer instead hires someone with RPI status, that penalty will go away. That is utterly and completely indefensible.”

“Nobody in this body wants to see African-American unemployment go up. Nobody wants to see Hispanic unemployment go up, youth unemployment go up, union household unemployment go up, legal immigrant unemployment go up. Yet every one of those will happen if this Gang of Eight bill passes without fixing this problem. If that happens, all 100 members of the U.S. Senate will be accountable to our constituents for explaining why we voted to put a federal penalty on hiring U.S. citizens and hiring legal immigrants. I hope this body will choose to pass my amendment and fix this grave defect in the Gang of Eight legislation.”

Wow. Now could we expect anything better from Democ-rat Socialists like Harry "Whorehouse" Reed, Nancy "Queen of Deception" Pelosi, Diane "Ban All Guns" Feinstein and other "senior members" of Senate? Did Barb Mikulski and Ben Cardin Voted Yes on this, too ? Please tell me it isn't so. Wow, what A Shocker, surpprised anyone? Remember, they have done this before with Obamacare bill - passing it wirhout reading it. Kudos to Mr. Cruz for exposing this. Lets hope the House of Delegates will flush this bill where it belongs - in the crapper.

Sigh! Nothing new for Mikulski. It's the same "incentive" she has offered for employers of Visa workers for years via the unemployment tax.

This bill needs to be stopped at all costs and every low life "moderate Republican" that voted for it voted out of office.
