 Power Line: Ensign Amendment Defeated
Earlier today, the Senate voted 50-49 to kill an amendment to the immigration bill offered by Senator John Ensign of Nevada that would have barred illegals from getting Social Security credit for the time when they were working illegally.
(John McCain's "Call it a banana" was one of the low points of that debate.) Under the Senate bill, illegals will get Social Security credit for contributions made when they were working in violation of the law, resulting, in many instances, in their receiving benefits that far exceed those contributions.
Senator Ensign's amendment represents common sense and fiscal responsibility by refusing to reward illegal work when Social Security is facing such long-term difficulties.
