Exclusive: GOP Establishment Uses Obama's, Left's Data to Argue Amnesty 'Creates Jobs'
Breitbart ^ | 21 Aug 2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 08/22/2013 7:12:01 AM PDT by xzins

The American Action Network (AAN), a GOP establishment organization headed by former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN), is trying to argue that passing an amnesty would “create jobs.”

AAN data reportedly shows the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” immigration bill “would add nearly 14,000 new jobs on average in each congressional district over the next decade.”

AAN violating American Economic Association (AEA) standards

“This is outrageous,” a former Heritage Foundation staffer told Breitbart News, regarding the fact that an economic analysis produced by a shop that Holtz-Eakin is involved with would not publish the required economic data to be considered credible and has not released it upon request. .

what is known about AAN’s work is that it used economic data that President Barack Obama’s White House has touted after the Institutional Left funded the production of the research. The Ford Foundation ...George Soros-funded National Immigration Forum (NIF),

Ironically, that same CBO report points out that wages of American workers would be driven down for at least a decade if this bill were to pass.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told Breitbart News on Tuesday that the group needs to release the relevant information or pull it down from its website.

Sessions also told Breitbart News that the Senate Gang of Eight bill’s failure will only at best reduce illegal immigration 30 to 50 percent from current levels—

"Based on conservative CBO projections, the senate bill would add approximately 46 million immigrants by 2033,” Miller said in an email. “Even using AAN's inflated claim of 6 million jobs that's not nearly enough to keep up with the expansion of guest workers and low-skill immigration contained in the proposal. That's why CBO reports that joblessness will grow, wages will fall, and per-capita GNP will shrink for the next 25 years.”

I can’t think of a more effective way for the GOP to demoralize its base before a key election.

They are elitists. They want to please their major donors, and to hell with anyone else.

The GOP is broken beyond repair. It’s time for a replacement, ground up.

Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.

Where are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?

Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?

Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?

More BS for the amnesty pushers.

If the illegal border jumper were actually creating that kind of economic benefit, Mexico would be building the fence -- to keep them in Mexico.

That would be a lot of government and correctional institution jobs, maybe it’s including all of the construction work to build more prisons?

I think they mean that putting 30 to 50 million foreigners on welfare and ObamaCare would create a lot of “new jobs”. That’s a lot of “navigator” jobs.

I'd guess they're being blackmailed by the F, the B, and the I on Democratic [sic] party orders—unless, of course, they're just completely stupid.

My daughter sent my wife a text yesterday (both are teachers) saying, she wished they’d fully fund schools and let prisons get their money from property tax bond issues.

I laughed.

I believe it will create jobs. If a 10 million people immigrate and employment among citizens drops by 2 million jobs while 2.1 million immigrants get jobs, then it created jobs.
Unemployment as a percentage of the population or workforce may have risen. Unemployment as an absolute number and as a percentage among citizens will have risen. The standard of living among citizens or the entire population may have fallen. But jobs were created.

If Boner brings any "comprehensive amnesty" bill up for a vote I can assure him this is the status he will find the party in come Dec 2014.

Sort of like unemployment compensation creating millions of new jobs according to Nancy Pelosi and other politicians.

It never ceases to amaze me the loads of manure politicians try to pawn off on the American public -- and the number of times they actually succeed in doing so.

AAN data reportedly shows the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” immigration bill “would add nearly 14,000 new jobs on average in each congressional district over the next decade.”

The trouble with that stat is that legalizing the stated 10 million will create 22,988 job seekers, instantly. Over 10 years, triple the number of job seekers and we have a deficit if about 55,000 jobs per legislative district.

They are both on the same page in the “Lets Make America Marxist” playbook. The only difference is that they read slower. We are no longer a Representative Republic. We are a Dictatorial Oligarchy!

American Action Network is associated with American Action Forum, both of which are Jeb Bush & Karl Rove.

Nobody says they’ll be American jobs.

To pay for anything with welfare wages the norm, they’ll be buying more garbage from slave laborers in overseas factories.

I have no doubt that there are literally leftist infiltrators in the GOP. It would only be their SOP, as it’s worked so well in all the other American institutions they’ve infiltrated and then taken over, like academia and the media. The only major institutions they hadn’t yet infiltrated and taken over were the military and the “opposition” political party, and now they’re completing their take-over of those. They began their infiltration of mainstream Christian denominations a long time ago, and have consolidated their infiltration, takeover, and destruction of many of those. You can easily tell the few they haven’t infiltrated and destroyed, because those are small, separatist, often fundamentalist, and resistant. So those are mocked, marginalised, and now being persecuted (the sodomite agenda are the frontlines for this purpose).

Import hb 1 visa holders to scale back wages on high tech jobs,import South American peasants to scale back wages on the entry level and blue collar jobs, import more Middle Eastern and African muslims via the diversity lottery.Give them preforgiven loans and grants to start 0 % income taxed businesses and push them to the front of the line for free college education during the worst economic recession in 50 years. Next tell native Americans that it’s time to lower their expectations and they need to cough up more tax money in the name of fairness.While we’re at it we’re going to move more section 8 housing into your area to ensure diversity, sorry about your schools and home values! Oh we need to more tax money from you to help the immigrants and minorities moving into your neighborhood too!
Thankfully the Republicans are looking out for and standing up for the American citizen! Oh wait that would be racist! Better reach to across the aisle and surrender to the democrats that way we can grow the economy and prove we’re the party of Yes!

My favorite is when Obama said that adding people to government payrolls would increase tax revenue and REDUCE THE DEFICIT. Increase tax revenue? Technically yes, it would. Reduce the deficit? Only in the Merry Old Land of Oz. You have to be high on alcohol, pot AND meth to believe it would reduce the deficit.

Thanks for saying Republic rather than Democracy. Yes, we are a Dictatorial Oligarchy, it is time to stop pretending otherwise. The rule of law is effectively dead in this country, the question is not whether we will lose it but whether we can ever regain it. My guess is certainly not during my lifetime.

To better understand why many Corporate management types embrace this type of lunacy:

1. Most of the major Corporate contributors are overly focused on the immediate boost to sales from an increase in the number of consuming bodies within our borders. This focus on quarter by quarter benefits, largely ignores the slightly slower to accelerate, but enormous social costs (including Welfare & Medical costs, that will result from those additional bodies.

1. Most of the major Corporate contributors are overly focused on the immediate boost to sales from an increase in the number of consuming bodies within our borders. This focus on quarter by quarter benefits, largely ignores the slightly slower to accelerate, but enormous social costs (including Welfare & Medical costs, that will result from those additional bodies.

2. These same big donors like the downward pressure on wages, which will also result from having more bodies to fill what job openings there may be. (There will not be, as some propagandists have falsely claimed, any remotely like a one for one increase in available jobs, for each new body.)

3. In addition to ignoring the more readily observed social & governmental costs from the increased bodies within our borders, there are less immediately obvious costs, which are ultimately more significant, but often overlooked by the myopic immediate focus of the Corporate contributors, such as the over-crowding in our cities; the need for extra security; the loss of a reflective, spiritually rewarding ambiance in our parks & open spaces; the deterioration in our schools--already evident in the most afflicted areas, etc., etc. (Form your own list.)

4. Finally consider why--besides pure avarice--that the Corporate types refuse to focus on anything but the short term benefits to their businesses; why they even overlook the fact that the newcomers will pay less taxes towards the new costs, than those business men themselves--a trend likely to accelerate, as the Congress moves further Left as the new bodies get the vote.

You may call it being "politically correct." But the Corporate business community have been conditioned like Pavlovian dogs, to consider just about anything, before they consider an ethnic factor in any way that any extreme activist on the Left or in Government, might be able to view as anti-egalitarian.

The Jesse Jacksons & Al Sharptons, the Justice Department, a host of other agencies, including State & local, have a chilling reputation for being on the prowl. There are few things more frightening to Corporate management, today, than the thought that they might be targeted with a "Civil Rights" Complaint. Few will even send an email, today, which might offer the slightest hint of an intent to discriminate in any way on any forbidden basis--or even the awareness of a problem in a frightening area.

Now, have I suggested anything here, that does not fit with anybody else's observations?
