By looking at your profile, you have your h1 from '01, got your PR in '11 and you must have accumulated enough credits to satisfy the rule . Did you become a citizen yet?
You don't need to become a citizen to claim SS benefits. You just need 40 credits. You need to refer to the SSA documents.

I guess you did not read the complete thread, I am not talking about SS benefits. Please see below.

to be eligible for ssn, one has to earn 40 credits but you can earn only 4 credits every year so 10 years of work in total.

Someone waiting for 5 yrs in backlogs wants citizenship laws changed to benefit 5 yrs from priority dt.
Someone else waiting for 5 yrs since I-140 wants citizenship laws to changed to count 5 yrs from I-140.
Another person waiting for 5 yrs in I-485 wants it to be changed to count 5 yes from applying I'485.
Then same thing with 40 credits for SSN and blah blah blah blah

We want every law customized to benefit our individual situation that its getting to a point of being absurd. Without actually doing diddly sqwat people post action action items for someone else to work on. Can there be a better example of laziness of mind and body? I will search around, or just hang around here and see more of this coming :-)

I was about to say this. But one thing is, even one of them happens, everyone will benefit. But we just need to think which is rationale.

Most of all, just wishing something would be good, not going to help. We'll have to collectively decide and work on this to bring this to law makers. This takes money, time and and energy from every individual, who directly or indirectly gets benefited.

Someone said they are brainstorming ideas. Why don't we assign responsibilities to people who came up with the idea. The person who started the thread should take the headship of this bill. How can we contact him?

yes, visiting a forum and not posting an idea is most likely more lazy than actually posting an idea without any action.

can't even have a discussion anymore without somebody crying about "action items"

You are funny. I thought you have been around enough to know that everyone will just post and argue for provisions that will help their individual situation. Other than asking to pass a law that says "This bill gives green card to Mr. Radhe Shyam....." most posts here are so customized that its meant to fix the problem of only the guy or gal posting the suggestion.

So how about this - reduce the wait time of 5 years to get citizenship to 3 years for those who have EB green card. This is similar to what the law makers did to spouses of U.S citizens by reducing the wait time to 3 years from 5 years.

Now, before you raze me for posting this idea (yes, I admit that I am one of those arm chair bloggers) I will disclose that I have a green card and I waited 10 years to get it. So, please take this idea with a grain of salt.

Great idea! You forgot to say that your idea is "easy sell", "no brainier", "low hanging fruit", "should be easily done by next week if we only ask" and "who owns the action item to make it happen because you said so".

Got two new once - "will benifit everyone from people in immigration queue" and "is a good chance that this will get accepted if we can present this in a right way".
