In 2012, the average American taxpayer making $50,000 per year paid just $36 towards the food stamps program and about $6 per year for the rest of the social safety net programs.
Well.
ATD Fourth World, a non-profit International organization fighting poverty took a look at the state of Welfare in the USA and has a different perspective.


141,204,625 Americans paid income taxes in 2015[. Because of our progressive tax rate, the top 5% of taxpayers (the 7 million wealthiest Americans, those earning over $350,000 a year) cover 60% of the program’s cost. This means that SNAP cost the remaining 95% of taxpayers just $200 a year.

None of which actually contradicts what Barton posted, despite your claim that it is a "different take."

Republicans care less about what their priorities cost than Democrats, and the price tag on those priorities is much, much higher.  Corporations are paying the lowest taxes in 50 years despite record high profits.  Those corporate tax cuts from Trump's bill alone could end up costing $2 Trillion over the next ten years alone.  Who ends up paying for that eventually?  Every day joe taxpayer.

But Trump will likely get a record amount of donations from rich folk anxious to keep their "winning" going, and to the GOP that is what matters.

I wasn't quoting you, asshole.

I was quoting WP.

If you want to claim he should have said "What?" that is your option, but given your idiocy in saying "say what?" to start with, there is little point to driving home the point of how inane you are.

Trump vows mass immigration arrests, removals of ‘millions of illegal aliens’ starting next week

President Trump said in a tweet Monday night that U.S. immigration agents are planning to make mass arrests starting “next week,” an apparent reference to a plan in preparation for months that aims to round up thousands of migrant parents and children in a blitz operation across major U.S. cities.

“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump wrote, referring to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “They will be removed as fast as they come in.”

Yes, 'turn back the boats'...or in this case people without boats.

It's the only way...to have an immigration system with integrity.

The US govt must be deciding "who comes to this country"...and "the manner in which they come".

We have laws for immigration control that the president alone does not have the power to change.

He is a lawless creepy fuck so this is exactly the type of idiotic misery inducing move he tends to make and that the lower invertebrates with internet access tend to applaud.

That said, if they send some Aussies back to the decaying hellscape that spawned them I won’t be too broken up about it.

Immigrant rights are human rights. Australian rights are conditional on good behavior.

Who wants seriously criminal immigrants staying in their country after their prison sentences have been completed?
Not many...so back from whence they came they go.

Good behaviour...passing all the tests, and being in possession of a correct visa;

https://www.watoday.com.au/national/western-australia/perth-grandmother-faces-deportation-despite-living-in-australia-for-over-a-decade-20190606-p51vcd.html

A grandmother who has lived in Australia for over a decade with her family has been threatened with deportation back to her home country.

Mollie Manley, 93, moved to Perth from Somerset in the United Kingdom 11 years ago so she could be with her family, which included her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Ms Manley was allowed into the country on a temporary bridging visa while her aged-parent visa was processed.
At the time of her application, which can sometimes take a number of years to be completed and accepted, she had passed all relevant medical tests.

However in recent years, Ms Manley became blind and is now living in an aged-care facility.
As a result, the Australian migration authorities deemed she was “too much of a burden” on the national healthcare system to be granted a visa.

They formally denied her visa earlier this year, but her family have not informed the 93-year-old of the decision.
Her family members told Nine News Perth it would be a mistake to deport the elderly woman, as she has no remaining family in the UK.

“She has no family in the UK whatsoever, her husband died in the 1980s and she was living alone in the UK. If she goes back, she will have no family support,” son-in-law Robert Rowe said.
“She’s 93, it’s unlikely that she is going to live in her present state for very long ... we’re just asking them to show a bit of compassion and allow her to stay and live out her life.”
