HEY, WHY NOT? Boehner Omnibus Spending Bill Funds Social Security Benefits for Obama's Amnesty Aliens

What else would you expect?

Pages 958 and 959 of the 1,603-page omnibus spending bill from House Speaker John Boehner include a provision that gives Social Security benefits to illegal aliens under President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty...

...Right after Obama’s executive amnesty announcement, the White House confirmed to the Washington Post that illegal aliens who get amnesty from Obama—paid for by Boehner, and any Republican who votes for this omnibus bill—will have access to Social Security benefits.

By not including language saying that Social Security benefits can’t go to illegal aliens under the executive amnesty—just as they didn’t include language going after funding for the implementation of the executive amnesty itself—Republicans are completely surrendering, ensuring that millions of illegal aliens will get Social Security.

...[A] GOP aide said he’s not surprised Boehner caved to Obama’s amnesty... “I can’t say I’m surprised by this, given the apparent lack of will to protect the American people against Obama’s illegal actions,” the aide said.

I get the feeling that the Oligarchs in Washington can be segmented not as Democrats and Republicans, but as "Traitors" and "Quislings", respectively.

Yeah, you can use that one, royalty-free. It's the least I can do.

C'mon boys, you should know that that is THE REASON that the Republican Establishment™ secretly wanted the aliens by the trainload. Jeb gave it up when he blurted out, "well, who is going to pay the benefits of all those (white) retirees?" Make no mistake about it, the Repubs are more worried about pitchforks and torches than you can imagine. They know the truth about how close we are to the tipping point, and foolishly decide to screw posterity (yet again) to save their own quisling hides. Remember when Rick Perry called SS a Ponzi scheme? The flak he received from the Establishment Right told you everything you needed to know about illegal immigration and the "Jobs That American's Won't Do"©.

Okay now wait, in fairness: The last paragraph says "by not explicitly including language" that would ban payments to illegal aliens, it allows it. So I haven't checked the text of the bill, but it sounds from this like the Republican budget bill does have a line item like "social security benefits for illegal aliens given amnesty by Obama ... $20 billion". Rather, it allocates a certain amount for social security benefits, and doesn't mention illegal aliens. Hey, I'm annoyed at Republican cowardice as much as anyone. But while this could have been a good opportunity to interfere with Obama's amnesty, you imply that the Republicans actively supported his program, rather than that they failed to use one particular opportunity to block it.
