'Equal protection' amendment to the immigration bill
It occurred to me that there might be a very short and very simple amendment that would ensure the support of a majority of the citizens of the United States for the immigration bill. John McCain ought to be demanding space be found in the bill's 600+ pages for this single sentence:
"Every citizen of the United States shall be entitled to the same treatment for taxation liability as this bill provides for individuals who have entered the United States illegally."This would mean that we will all be exempt from taxation for the same number of years (all) that illegal aliens would be exempt from taxation. Since illegal immigrants won't have to pay taxes for the years that they have worked in the United States, legal citizens should similarly be entitled to that benefit.
Surely there breathes a Senator who will fight for the rights of citizens to be treated equally with individuals who have broken the law. Who could vote against this?
I can't wait to get my refund.
