Reid protects illegal aliens taking taxpayer funds

Reid Objects To Bill Closing IRS Tax Credit Loophole For Illegal Aliens

Sen. Sessions and Louisiana Senator David Vitter spoke on the Senate floor today to explain a tax loophole that allows illegal aliens to wrongfully claim more than $4 billion a year in child tax credit for dependents, many of whom don’t even live in the United States, and to ask unanimous consent to call up and pass legislation that would close this loophole (which the Treasury Department’s independent Inspector General for Tax Administration has asked Congress to do in the absence of administrative action). But, as seen in the video above, Majority Leader Harry Reid blocked the effort. Closing the loophole would save taxpayers at least an estimated $4 billion per year, or roughly $10 million per day. – released by Senator Sessions on May 22nd, 2012

    Mr. Russell, Fair Tax is NOT a FLAT TAX. These are two different issues. By putting them in the same message, you can confuse people to support the wrong issue. A flat tax is a INCOME tax without loopholes and deduction. You take a percentage of your income, no matter how much and send that percentage of your income to the IRS. It does NOT end the IRS!!
    It does NOT eliminate the Income Tax. When the income tax started in 1913 it WAS A FLAT TAX!!! It didn’t go into effect until a person earned over $4,000 per year. (equivalent to $250,000) now. Anything after $4,000 was tax a a FLAT 10% ergo, the FLAT TAX. Some of the sleazy politicians want the flat tax knowing that it will end up the same way it is now within a few years.
    The FAIR TAX is a consumption tax. It WILL end the IRS. It will end the INCOME TAX. We have to repeal the 16th Amendment according to the sleazy politicans even though the 16th Amendment gave no new taxing powers to Congress!!!! FAIR TAX is a viable alternative to the current system and the sleazy FLAT TAX.

  • I support the FairTax. I would run against any Democrat or Republican that steals taxpayer money to support illegal aliens or who allows these loopholes to continue. Anyone who does not seriously want a simple flat tax that protects Americans wages while eliminating Income Taxation completely. Visit: http://www.fairtax.org for more information.

  • Reid is a traitor to the United States. He is allowing illegal aliens to steal taxpayers money. Harry Reid will do anything to get illegal aliens votes even though they are not allowed to be here or vote. He is wasting Tax payers money and should be thrown out on his ass.
