Loophole for illegals in 'Obamacare'?
Loophole for illegals in 'Obamacare'?
NO FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR UNDOCUMENTED ALIENS.
Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.
But Stuart Bybee, spokesman for Rep. Dean Heller, R-Nev., told WND restrictions on illegal alien enrollment are not clearly enforced under the House bill.
"Essentially, it's just a very vague provision, and it really doesn't have any enforcement capability to it," Bybee said. "It just says if you go in and claim that you are a citizen, that's good enough."
Got a couple days to read thru this double talk
To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce
the growth in health care spending,
"and for other purposes"
I feel there's someone standing behind me. An evildoer,,perhaps

"And we've got legal residents or citizens who are eligible for the plan. And I want a comprehensive immigration plan that creates a pathway to achieve that."
Anyone wanna bet that there is going to be an exodus from Mexico to the US, unlike any seen before?You people are you satisfied with this kind of world? I'm not.

Unfortunately you don't have a monopoly on this in the US, consider these short article links:
Failed asylum seekers to get free NHS care:
Failed asylum seekers to get free NHS care - Telegraph
Illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in Britain under amnesty, says influential think tank| News | This is London
Amnesty on illegal immigrants is 'worth £6bn to UK' - This Britain, UK - The Independent
Britain owes these immigrants nothing. My descendants worked hard developing this country and fought wars for this country and do you know who they were working and fighting for? Thats right me and my children not Mr Im E Grant and his seed.
It makes me sick and if it were up to me i'd send the buggers back."I hope you leave enough room for my fist because I'm going to ram it into your stomach and break your god-damn spine! "

The problem with illegal immigrants is the process in which to become a legal citizen, (especially mexico). It can take a decade just to acquire a visa number, assuming you have the money and documents to qualify. Then its another 5 years in the states before you can apply for actual legal citizenship.
As of right now we are paying for those who arent insured, illegal or not, monetarily competent or not, and have been for decades. It effects us whether we like it or not.An article in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons states that the burden of illegal immigrants on the health care system in the US has forced many hospitals to close due to unpaid bills and the unfunded mandate of Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA). Between 1993 and 2003, 60 hospitals in California alone were forced to close, and many others had to reduce staff or implement other procedures which reduced the level of service they could provide. The article attributes these closings mainly to illegal immigration.

Every single illegal alien is a criminal, they are breaking the law and they deserve nothing...
They do not deserve citizenship, they should all be deported back to their country.You people are you satisfied with this kind of world? I'm not.

You think it's bad now, wait until all the sick illegals come flowing over into San Diego for "free" medical treatment.
The problem with illegals is that they are poor and are going to stay that way, since they are in the business of working cheap. They hold down the wages of legal citizens.
Construction wages are lower in real dollars than they were in the '70's due to illegals taking over the workforce.
It's so bad, that when housing in California crashed, the unemployment rate didn't budge for six months since the illegals aren't counted since they can't draw unemployment.Obama doesn't need an "enemies list"... He sees half the country as his enemy.

raising the wages of those that are legal, but I can just hear the complaints about price increases.Conservatives: "If the facts disagree with our opinion, ignore the facts -- or at least misrepresent them."

Oh, what to do. Bring them into the system so we can tax them and essentially make them a part of the buffer to cover the costs of such a healthcare system so they're not freeloading? Kick them out of the country to prevent them from freeloading onto such a healthcare system, and also open up more job opportunities for legals? Though, MTA, I don't see the latter increasing wages, but in fact decreasing them, as their cost or standard of living is lower which is why they work for less. Granted either option will raise the cost of these working positions in our economy, thus pumping an at least minor inflationary effect through the system landing on the consumer, only to be countered with deflationary effect on the labor end - both to be met somewhere in the middle.
Well, anyway, any "healthcare reform" that involves a third party insurance rather than just the government for the statistical financial buffer is going to be a rape of the people. Insurance companies are big enough frauds and drains, god help us when they become manditory after such a performance history.

Yes, wages will go up. And the recipients of those wages will live a little better. Maybe even get off welfare.
It sounds like you are in favor of "outsourcing" America's economy to illegal aliens within the country.
Why do we allow illegals to hang around Home Depot to work for $ 50.00 a day? I'll give you one reason: You are afraid to hire the college kid around the corner for fear he will step on a nail and sue you.
I obviously don't understand how liberals think. If they think at all.Obama doesn't need an "enemies list"... He sees half the country as his enemy.

Liberals are the ones championing the minimum wage raises, while conservatives complain about how inflationary it will be. I think that I can speak for all liberals when I say that we don't have any problem with raising the standard of living of the poor and the working classes, even if it means higher prices.Conservatives: "If the facts disagree with our opinion, ignore the facts -- or at least misrepresent them."

Re: original topic - obviously illegals will be covered. Once they become naturalized, they're gonna vote, and who better to vote for than the traitors who give 'em free health care?
They're already a drain on our system, but as usual, our leaders don't want to confront that problem - they think it'd be easier to just revamp the entire system. Kind of like having a leaky pipe that's flooding the house, and instead of fixing the pipe, the idiots build a new house.

If he's ILLEGAL, why don't you turn him in and have him deported. Love to see you on the news loading them into a cattle car on their way back to Mexico.
