Video: Dem. Congressman Says Census Needs To Count All Regardless Of Immigration Status

January 7th, 2010 by mopns · No Comments

This is complete madness! Since Congressman Clay was a fierce advocate for ACORN’s inclusion in census canvassing, what is his position on this radical idea?

These Democrats are demonstrating everyday their raw thirst and desire for power. First they force through an unpopular healthcare bill the public doesn’t want, and now to help facilitate their congressional majority forever, they want to include illegal aliens in the census count. Of course these illegal/legal aliens will have a future preference for a party that bestowed citizenship on them after they willfully broke the law to enter this country.

    I wrote two detailed columns on this for my blog. This comes down to Clay trying to ensure that Missouri and other Democratic districts do not lose seats in the House to areas with a Republican majority.

    Clay is the perfect example of Big Daddy Politics. Apparently he is not concerned with the $115+M illegals cost Missourians annually. As long as he and his kind can give illegals all the benefits paid for by working taxpayers, he has everything to gain if those illegals can be counted to keep his district with his party. Meanwhile, he probably claims to be working for the poor. Does he support the FairTax? Ed Emery’s HJR 56 would bring jobs to MO and allow the working man to keep the payroll deduction now going to state income tax. Plus everyone would get a rebate equal to the taxes paid up to the poverty level of spending. Now with corporations face higher taxes they have to either cut hours or labor – both detrimental to the lower wage income earner. That poor man who is holding two or three jobs takes the worse hit as he sees his take home pay dwindling. Not much incentive to work that extra job. If Clay was really worried about bettering lives of Missourians, he would support the FairTax.
