You knew this was coming didn't you? 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.
Of course, the Donks won't admit that they want to make the taxpayers give a medical care entitlement to illegal aliens - they just won't do anything to prevent it: It's like the Democrat position on illegal aliens voting: they claim not to support it, but won't do anything to stop it.
Democrats had insisted throughout the health-care reform debate that illegals would be ineligible for the so-called public option plan that is to be subsidized by taxpayers.
"We're not going to cover undocumented aliens, undocumented workers," Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, told reporters in May. "That's too politically explosive."
Republicans, however, point out that the Democrats, by refusing to accept the Heller amendment, would deny health agencies from conducting simple database checks to verify citizenship. Many states give illegals driver licenses, which will be sufficient to get free health care under the plan.
Welcome the "new neighbors" and hand them your charge card - it's the Democrat way.
