|Paul Ryan to Americans: "Fuck You!"|
"Conservative" GOP Congressman Paul Ryan, the former vice-presidential candidate, is emerging as his party's leading champion of immigration reform in the House of Representatives. Ryan has been meeting with House conservatives to persuade them to support "reform" of the immigration system, a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and importing more workers into America.

Obamacare makes it cheaper to hire non-citizens
- With massive poverty and unemployment among American citizens, both parties fall all over themselves to pander to citizens of foreign nations and give them the jobs and wealth of native born Americans of all races.
As the Washington Examiner's Philip Klein recently reported:
"Under Obamacare, businesses with over 50 workers that employ American citizens without offering them qualifying health insurance could be subject to fines of up to $3,000 per worker. But because newly legalized immigrants wouldn’t be eligible for subsidies on the Obamacare exchanges until after they become citizens – at least 13 years under the Senate bill – businesses could avoid such fines by hiring the new immigrants instead."
THE WEEKLY STANDARD asked five different U.S. Senators about this problem. These five senators, all Democrats, voted to cut off debate Monday night on the revised immigration bill, but none of them knew if the bill would create a financial incentive for some employers to hire amnestied immigrants instead of American citizens.
"I don't know. I'd have to look at it closely," said Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania. "I just haven't read it that closely to know."
Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said he thought the Affordable Care Act's fines would apply no matter what. "I'd have to look at the ACA, but I don't think it distinguishes" between citizens and those on a path to citizenship, Blumenthal said. But then he said he wasn't quite sure. "I mean I'd have to look. You're asking a legal question. It's not an opinion question," Blumenthal added. "I don't recall any distinction in the law. But that's a good question. I'd have to check."
Senator Tom Carper of Delaware said he was too busy to answer the question. "I don't have the time to drill down on it right now,"
