    If the goal is to thwart illegal's sending money, then those who do not have a SIN to attach get the 5% ding.

    You would have a secondary benefit in those who are laundering money , and choose not to supply a SIN, that money can go to the kitty to investigate money laundering :-)

    Social Insurance Number. The number you would attach to your tax return to identify you as you.

    To the best of my knowledge many of my ancestors were immigrants and they sent not a pence or a cent to their crap ex-country. Their money stayed in the US to build the US.
    Like a relative said a while back: Los Angeles is not a city to make a home, it is just a place for foreigners to make money and then move elsewhere.

    Glad to see that the proposed law doesn't screw those of us live here and send money to ourselves, although we will have to do an extra federal form every year to get our own money back.

    SSN, Social Security Number. What if they just make up a number?

    I’m for the bill, make it happen.

    Reminds me of that old Seinfeld episode with George trying to convince his GF that he was "bad"

    George would do anything to get laid.

    Then there was the episode where he tried to do his three favorite things at the same time:

    Get laid, watch TV, and eat
