"The less you know, the more they lie"
“Tom Kean opposes embryonic stem cell research.” Tom Moran calls this a lie, one of many, Bob Menendez has told innumerable times. Kean’s position on this issue is clear to anyone who has bothered to check the facts, as voters who oppose federal funding of stem cell research will be quick to point out.
Tom Moran also calls this statement a lie – “Bob Menendez wants to grant Social Security benefits to illegal aliens” and explains his opinion with this “logic”:
He [Menendez] supported a bill that would grant Social Security benefits to some immigrants -- but only if they follow the steps to earn legal status first. Those who remain here illegally would get nothing.The “some immigrants” Moran refers to are the millions of illegal aliens Menendez favors making legal through an amnesty plan. The Washington Post reported on the cost to American taxpayers if the Senate illegal immigrant amnesty bill became law:
Over the next decade, legalized workers and their families, in addition to guest workers and theirs, would claim $24.5 billion in tax refunds through the earned income credit and child credit, $15.4 billion in Medicare and Medicaid, $5.2 billion in Social Security benefits and $3.7 billion in food stamps and child nutrition programs, the report estimates.Depending upon your perspective, conferring these benefits may be a good idea or a bad idea, but there’s no doubt Menendez favors legalizing illegal aliens and awarding them an array of benefits, including Social Security.
“The less you know, the more they lie” – “they” includes the media.
