A better way to save money is the new approach of limitingthe number of family into the country where sponsoring families earn less than a predetermined annual salary. That way the higher taxes pay off aome of the debt incurred by brining over the family.

i am an immigrant but i completely agree with peter's statement, a lot of perents coming this country only for free health and dol. i met many people and talk to hundreds of people and met with many own country people but all are bringing their parents for DOL and free Medical. We are paying tax for the people who does not contribute anything to economy and day by day the tex , the road rego, and everything is going up result of this.
