I’m still waiting for someone to provide facts and proof that the health care bill does in fact cover illegal immigrants. After all,that is why Mr.Wilson called Obama a liar.[/quote]
Boss, this is done in 2 ways.
- The Heller Amendment was defeated, which would have made it mandatory to for someone who plans on using the government option to actually PROVE their citizenship, rather than just claiming it. So you would actually have to use something like E-Verify or something showing that your name matches the Social Security Number you are providing, instead of any old number. This was bill did not pass in the Ways and Means Committee by 26-15 vote.
- In the bill, there is a clause which states that if one person in your family qualifies, everyone in the family qualifies. Section 242(a)(2) of the bill suggests that if one member of a family is legally eligibleâ??say an anchor babyâ??every family member will be considered
Now answer me this Boss, if you really intend to keep illegals from getting healthcare, why would you vote down a bill that would check their status? If you are truly sincere about preventing them from getting it.
This is my real beef with approaching the healthcare issue. If you are going to honestly try to fix this shit, then do it right.
People like to ignore this issue, but here in Caifornia it is a serious problem. If you add up the entire cost that illegals cost the system (education, welfare, food stamps, public benefits, and incarceration), you are looking at 12 BILLION dollars IN CALIFORNIA ALONE. We have 12% of the US population, but 33% of the US welfare. People wonder why we are going bankrupt, here you go. This state’s deficit this year is 26 billion, and half of that cost is due to illegals gaming the system. I don’t know about you, but if this is half the problem, I would fix it.
