Many Senators want to grant illegal aliens Social Security benefits which is absurd. If they have been paying into Social Security at all it is with fraudulent documents or stolen identity of someone's SS number. I received an Email today which I have seen many times indicating the desire to "Jerk the Golden Fleece Retirement Plan from under the Senators and Congressmen. Put them into the Social Security plan with the rest of us."
The email urges us to make this an issue in the 2006 and 2008 elections. Years ago congress voted themselves a great retirement package allowing them to continue to receive their salaries upon retirement. They do not pay into the system because they figure the taxpayers are so thrilled by the great service they provide that we will reward them until death. We all know Social Security is not secure for future retirees so perhaps paying it out more quickly to those who enter our nation illegally will be a compassionate gesture to hasten a speedy death instead of a long drawn out misery caused by the uncertainty of younger workers wondering if they will have any chance of collecting some of the money they paid in and the ever increasing age for retirement.
