Obama Health Plan to Cover 12 Million Illegals
On Friday, Democrats moved one step closer to giving free health insurance to the nation’s estimated 12 million illegal aliens when they successfully defeated a Republican-backed amendment, offered by Rep. Dean Heller, R-Nev., that would have prevented illegal aliens from receiving government-subsidized health care under the proposed plan backed by House Democrats and President Barack Obama.
The House Ways and Means Committee nixed the Heller amendment by a 26-to-15 vote along straight party lines, and followed this action by passing the 1,018-page bill early Friday morning by a 23-to-18 margin, with three Democrats voting against the plan.
The Democratic plan will embrace Obama’s vision of bringing free government medical care to more than 45 million uninsured people in America – a significant portion of whom are illegal aliens.
According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, costs under the Obama plan being proposed by the House will saddle citizens with $1.04 trillion in new federal outlays over the next decade.

Obama Health Plan to Cover 12 Million Illegals
NO! How simple can we make this for the POSER in Chief? The socialist in the Oval Office that seeks to bankrupt this nation? NO NO NO NO NO NO a hundred times NO! What part of NO does this ignorant Kenyan not grasp?
Cover the illegals? He has got to be OUT OF HIS MIND! The ILLEGALS are one of the reasons this nation is in the fix it’s in. Sure, they work hard. They make money, and they do a good job for the most part. But, for the most part, they do it OFF THE BOOKS!
What little bit of money the U.S. realizes from these ILLEGALS is the small amount of sales tax collected when the ILLEGALS buy food, beer and cigarettes. They are NOT paying property taxes. They are not paying income or business taxes. They are milking our health system to death as it is. Now the biggest MORON to ever occupy the Oval Office wants to give ALL of them FREE MEDICAL CARE? And just WHO, Mr. Chicago Community Organizer, do you think is going to pay for THIS brainstorm?
A recent Rasmussen Reports poll found that an overwhelming 80 percent of Americans oppose covering illegals in any public health care bill.
Anti-immigration activists say the availability of low-cost benefits, including health insurance and in-state tuition, will only lure more immigrants to come to the United States.
The POSER in Chief had best pay attention to the above blockquote! Americans are already balking at a national health care plan, covering the ILLEGALS is going to be the straw that breaks the camels back. Or, perhaps I should say, it had better be that straw!
Senators and Congressmen of ALL feather had best be paying attention as well. As I told Sen. Cornyn and Hutchison regarding the nomination of Sotomayor, 2 words, and those 2 words should suffice in telegraphing the opinions of the vast majority of America. If you support this incredulous plan you are committing POLITICAL SUICIDE.
Estimates of the cost of providing illegals with medical care vary. Most uninsured illegals who need medical attention obtain it from hospital emergency rooms. And several states are already straining under the huge burden of paying for the health costs of illegal aliens.
According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), in 2004 California’s estimated cost of unreimbursed medical care was $1.4 billion. Texas estimated its cost at $850 million annually, and Arizona at $400 million.
I can’t speak for ALL states and hospitals, but I do know this, Parkland Hospital is inundated with ILLEGALS seeking medical care. Care they have NOT earned, care that they don’t pay for, and care that once they receive it, they brag about to their friends and families in other nations, and they offer encouragement to those friends and family, attempting to get even more of them here to the land of milk and honey, free medical care, free cheese! Free! FREE STUFF! Lots and lots of FREE STUFF in this wonderful land called the U.S.A. Well, free to them!
Someone has to PAY for this FREE MEDICAL CARE. Who is that going to be Oh Great and Mighty Obamanure? Are YOU going to foot the bill yourself? Are you going to instruct the Treasury to print more BILLIONS of PAPER dollars to cover this FREE medical treatment?
Free health care is NOT what these estimated 12 million ILLEGALS need. What they NEED is to be rounded up and deported back to their nation of origin. Once that task is accomplished, our borders need to be SEALED! I mean shut down tight. The financial burden that these ILLEGALS place upon us will more than cover the increased border security.
And while I am thinking of it, that nation of origin thing, maybe they can take Obamanure with them.
Surely his TRUE nation of Kenya would welcome a man of Obamanure’s obvious brilliance, a man that possesses a degree of business acumen that escapes even the most brilliant financial minds of this nation.
Yes, that is sarcasm. Sarcasm of the 1st order. Bitter, frustrated and sincere sarcasm!
Obamanure, and his Democratic money burning furnace MUST be stopped. I don’t mean challenged. I don’t mean slowed down. I mean stopped! By whatever means necessary, they must be stopped in their tracks.
We tried to get George Bush to address the problems this nation faces with ILLEGALS. He did very little, if anything. Americans haven’t had a president willing to address the problems of ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION since Dwight Eisenhower. Operation Wetback
Even the great Ronald Reagan was saddled by bad, and ultimately, unenforceable legislation regarding ILLEGALS.
President Ronald Reagan signed that bill into law with great fanfare amid promises that it would grant legal status to illegal immigrants, crack down on employers who hired illegal workers and secure the border once and for all. Instead, fraudulent applications tainted the process, many employers continued their illicit hiring practices, and illegal immigration surged. SOURCE
We all know how the Reagan amnesty thing turned out I believe.
Obamanure will do nothing at all to stop the ILLEGALS that are rapidly bankrupting this nation. He, and his evil minions, are encouraging the ILLEGALS to come here in even greater numbers with this ridiculous plan.
Stand UP America! For the love of God and Country, STAND and stop this debacle dead in it’s tracks! No nation allows itself to be bankrupted by ILLEGALS. No nation provides ILLEGALS with a blank check. No nation provides ILLEGALS with the amenities the U.S.A. offers. Now is the time to shut off the gravy train.
America 1st, for Americans. NOT the cretins that come here to get all the FREE everything they can get, and as soon as the FREE RIDE stops, turns tail and runs back to their HOME country. We can’t support the world any longer. America has been the beacon of light any time a nation faced disaster, and all we got for our efforts was a slap in the face.
Now we’re going to dangle the biggest carrot in ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION history?
NO! This can’t be allowed to happen.
