Ann Coulter's posting on May 31, "SE PUEDE GET TWO YEARS TAX-FREE", shows more of the same hatred and idiocy from her.
Ann: "The "path to citizenship" that Bush and the Senate are trying to pawn off on Americans requires that illegals pay huge fines and back taxes, with "huge" being defined as a $2,000 fine and taxes for three of the last five years."
Ann criticizes the immigrants for being low wage workers and getting a two year tax break. However, she doesn't mention the $2,000 fine is far more than what the low wage earners would have to pay in taxes in two years. In other words, the immigrants will pay more in taxes overall because of the $2000 fine.
Ann: "We're told illegal immigrants are dying to pay taxes if only they can become citizens. Oh by the way, they also will have a panoply of government benefits available to them if they become citizens Â in fact, even if they get green cards."
Ann doesn't mention that illegal immigrants do not receive any of those benefits. Sure they will receive some benefits when legalized, but they will pay taxes for those benefits. A fair tradeoff.
Ann: "Inasmuch as most of these low-skilled immigrant workers are in the 0 percent tax bracket"
Actually, the lowest tax bracket is 10 percent.
Ann: "The Senate bill also forgives illegal aliens who have committed identity theft by stealing American Social Security numbers to get jobs."
If the immigrants have to use a different social security number, the IRS will deduct taxes from that paycheck which the IRS keeps and the immigrant does not.
So Ann Coulter is trashing on immigrants as tax evaders. Like Sailer's tactics, she only points out part of the truth. When immigrants are undocumented, they do not receive any benefits like social security for their work. When immigrants become legalized, they must pay taxes to receive the government benefits.
However, Ann Coulter's greatest hypocrisy are the felonies she has committed and continues to commit against America at the cost of the American taxpayer. Her primary employer, Young America's Foundation, is a tax-exempt organization which literally takes tax revenue out of circulation by the millions annually so they can pay bigots like Ann Coulter a hefty $25,000 speaking fee
to spew her crap. She is also involved in criminal treason
and voter fraud
