I am not sure if our numbers are so strong, why can't we make our point and get things done.
Even if we take a conservative estimate and reduce these by half we still have a good case.

We cant make a difference, because we are fragmented. Forget helping out, others, we refuse to help ourselves

As per this link, there were 313K H1 petitions filed with an annual salary of $61K in 2005 ALONE.

I guess the perition number included H1 renewals etc, but even if no other H1 was filed ever (which is clearly not the case), assuming $15K federal tax this would amount to

313K*(15K + 5k) = more than $5 Billion tax in one year alone. Guess now we know who's funding the Iraq war (atleast partially!)
Those numbers are on the higher side, Generally the actual number is much lower. USCIS never publishes the actual unique H1-B's I wonder how many companies actually inform the USCIS when somebody does not join the company. 4 H1-B's were filed for me last year. On average there may be around 200K

How about not filing taxes this year?
We would automatically be in Illegal camp and have a shortcut to Citizenship.
Our status would be hottopic just like Big Brother issue.

Or, go on a plane and come back on a boat from Cuba.
I don't see why we are feeling so much pain when there is no pain in this GC wait?

I fail to understand, when people say that they can't change jobs.
Quit the jobs in mass. Go to a new employer and start your GC in perm.
I don't see a problem for those who already have EAD.
I still don't understand the problems who have I-140 approved. You can easily change jobs and start over with your old prioroty. All it takes is damn $8K (which employer will bear) for restarting the process.

Most of the problems and pains are from those people who want to quit IT as soon as they get GC.

Most of the problems are for those whose I-140 is pending.
I am not offending anyone by this message. There are my 2 cents.

You seem to be blissfully ignorant of the dependents' plight in this whole GC mess...
