here's mud in your eye, uninformed H-1B opponents

This is to all those politicians, douchebags, gormless gowks, and noddypeaks, who have decided to brainwash the media-fed American public with bags of mendacity on the H-1B visa. My pet peeve is echoed somewhere in the middle: People who come here on these visas pay every tax that U.S. citizens do, including Social Security and Medicare. But if they return to their homeland, then they will not get any benefits from these programs. The recent recession cost the United States more than half a million immigrant high-tech workers who had to return home -- after paying all these taxes. And what about the enormous expenses they incurred to settle down in the United States?. If this is incorrect, please correct me. I can appreciate "no representation despite taxation", but if there's a legal process to return the inaccessible OASDI/SS/Medicare $$$ to departing H-1B employees, I'd be more than willing to take note.

On a related note, the H-1B cap of 65000 visas closed on the first day of the fiscal year on October 01, 2004 (thanks, no doubt, to all those pending applications from the previous fiscal year)
