One of the very first bills Obama is expected to sign is a bill granting illegal aliens FREE health insurance. It will also give FREE health insurance to children whose parents earn up to $61,000 a year with a family of four.
Now, if you make SIXTY ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR you do not deserve free health care for your children. You can afford to pay for it and you should pay for it. PERIOD. That should be factored in above your mortgage. If the amount you have to pay for health care for your children is going to affect you, then buy a smaller house. Trade your car(s) in for something less expensive. Cancel your damn gym memberships....OK?
As for illegal aliens....they are not entitled to health benefits using American tax dollars. As I understand it, they can sign up with no passport or green card. They must provide a social security number and they will be given health benefits for up to 90 days while they verify the social security number. That being said, is the Social Security administration tracking stolen numbers? If a stolen SS number is not yet known to be stolen it will appear as valid. Which will allow illegal aliens to continue to burden our health care system with free health care.
Medicaid is meant to be for those in hard times, temporary. Sadly, it is used as a way of life by many Americans and illegal aliens.
America cannot afford to provide them with free health care. We are up to our ears in debt...have a sinking economy.....and these benefits should be paid for those hard working Americans and LEGAL immigrants who are suffering through this collapsing economy.
When is America going to wake up? They are here in violation of American laws! Why should we feel sorry for them? What about the people waiting in line legally to come live the American dream? Those who want to come here and propser, not come illegally to steal health care, food, housing, and education from the American tax payer.
America has to get a grip on the illegal alien issue. Yes, ILLEGAL ALIEN. They are here illegally. They are not undocumentented workers....they are criminals. They are stealing from the AMERICAN PEOPLE, and LEGAL IMMIGRANTS....they are stealing our AMERICAN DREAM. So that makes two crimes....entering illegally and stealing.
Sorry, I have no sympathy for them. Yet, by the end of the day tomorrow, this could be law.
