  • CIR - An Executive Solution

    Dear ILW.COM discussion board members:

    Gary Endelman and Cyrus Mehta offer an alternative for immigration reform that does not involve any legislative action at all. "The Path Less Taken: Is There An Alternative To Waiting For Comprehensive Immigration Reform?" argues for a solution that would help millions of immigrants in their struggle to obtain legal status.

      this will not work. It has the perfect intentions, but does not solve the real issues dealing with PERM labor certificates, H-1B visas, or other work related or family related immigration issues.

      Quotas should be eliminated and replaced solely with a qualification based immigration policy.

          Not like tax reform? That subject was front and center last night. 95% will get more money back to which he received a roaring ovation.

          No one asked who is going to pay for it though. Ain't gonna be me, I'll tell you that. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
          No, that is a tax cut. Tax reform is something completely different. there are parts of Title 26 that need to be overhauled completely to allow better collection activities and to pursue tax fraud cases, not to mentino other things.

            with the dropping rate of unemployment I don't
            think there is a future for CIR.

            The Guest Worker Program would have been one of Pres Bush greatest achievement if not because of this people around him who argues promoting their own political agenda all they did is blah blah!

            This could have created funds to build our boarder or lowered the cost of illegals if all this illegal workers were given the documentation to work and pay their taxes and penalties!

              No they won't pay. Besides, Obama said 95% will get something. Which implies the other 5% will pay for it all. Those would be people who earn just over 150k a year.

              Trust me, within a year the 5% will have done what they always do. The net result of this extortion will be job losses. The business owners who earn this will cut back employment. Or worse, ship the jobs overseas.

              The same thing was tried in California. Now look at the state. The biggest tax increase ever in recorded history of any state. Why? For the last several years they tried this soak the rich campaign. What happened? Many left. Now you have more people needing stuff and less people to pay for it. Did they cut spending like any sensible person would do? Our state is run by the Dems. Nothing further needs said.

              This was the final nail in the coffin for many. It isn't a question of if I'm leaving. Just when. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
              Davdah, the "rich" are already doing it. By raising the taxes, the IRS will now have to use its limited resources to go after these very complicated tax schemes. Look at the UBS situation. This is just the beginning. The capiatal gains issue will not be more complicated with "qualified five year property" tax calculations (8% or 18%( nor does it allow the lower incomes an incentive to invest in the stock market, lower mutual funds and equity financing. The elderly will not have only one viable option to invest, munis. Employers will not use the stock options as an effective tool for deferred compensation. And the 529 plans and other college investment funds will continue to take a hit.

              The problem I have with the budget is that it is not cutting the spending where it needs it. Balanced budgets are fine with there is a robust economy. Deficits are fine if that spending or tax cuts is directed at improving infrastructure, creating jobs, etc. The stimulus bill and this budget does neither. it is a repeat of '93 and '94.

                  In the UK when they put up Taxes to penal rates, the overall take reduced, not increased.

                  If you are paying that much tax it pays to reorganise your affairs, incur fees etc etc

                    Clearly unconstitutional. Parole was not designed for the executive to evade the immigration laws. Impeachment is the result, but then Obama is an illegal.

                            You are right in one sense Hudson. The more complex the tax code becomes the more sophisticated people will become in trying to avoid taxes.

                            For example. The recent stock market bomb. There is one bright side to it. During the last days of 2008 there was a gigantic sell off. Me included. You already know why. To take advantage of a capital loss write down. On january 2 the stocks were re-purchased.

                            What this goes to show is the tax system is understood to be unfair by nearly everyone. The very notion that its progressive speaks to its inequity. You are taxed at a higher rate but receive no increased benefit. Fair? No, and no amount 'you need to give back' is going to convince anyone. Those that pay next to nothing or worse, get free money are viewed as parasites by the middle class. Who feel they are carrying the weight. No one is happy and everyone is looking for ways to bend the rules. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
                            Well, that is one way at looking at it.

                            However, no tax system is fair and there will always be people who will not want to pay in whether it is a flat tax, regressive, VAT, or any other system.

                            But the point was that if tax rates increase while not increasing enforcement in anticipation rate hikes, the regulatory service is at an extreme disadvantage. Eventually, the agency will get "blamed" for not doing their job while one party will use it to propogate class warfare and the other party will use it to state federal service is worthless. In other words, Congress is about as useful as a tick on an elephant's butt, IMHO.
