Idea for the fiscal cliff

So with the cliff and Taxmageddon approaching, Republicans honestly don't want to cut entitlements and be seen as the bad guy. Democrats used our money and borrowed from China to buy the votes through entitlements, so they won't do it.

What if instead of cuts, we just enforce it so only CITIZENS can get food stamps, medicare etc?

Has it been tried? Certainly not in Texas.

That's pennies on the dollar of the problem. No one wants to share in the pain so the whole thing is going to go down.

the GOP will cave in.....increased taxes on the working class will be blamed on the GOP no matter what they do.

Facts are no match against enthusiasm and ignorance...

Illegals' votes for commie-crats are as good as anyone elses' ...

They'd created a vast, permanently unemployed underclass, dependent upon the Republic's stupendous welfare machine for its very existence, and in so doing, they'd sown the seeds of their own destruction. No one could place two-thirds of a world's population on the Dole and keep them there forever without the entire system crashing . . . but how in hell did one get them off the Dole? -David Weber, Flag in Exile

Nope the GOP is going to be blamed no matter what so let the Usurper have his way and let it crash around him. He signed off on this back in June so let him have what he created!
