    Obama's Health RX to cover Illegals

    Care for illegals is the biggest unmet medical need in our nation, and Obama's program targets it squarely. But do we really want to give them federally paid coverage equal to what US senators get, as Obama proposes?


    Covering illegals adds dramatically to the cost of any program - and would encourage more folks to enter America illicitly.


    Obama's plan will likely have a horrific effect on some local health-care systems

    McCain probably is not making an issue of this because he needs the
    Latino vote.

    We need a 527 add to expose this nightmare in key states.

    You cannot reward bad bahavior.

    Welcome back cupofjoe, but too bad you're relying on the New York Post. Clearly, Obama is simply making a mistake with that 47 million number, when actually only around 35 million citizens are uninsured. At any rate, I think illegals should be eligible for paying into a national health care system, otherwise they get the services for free at emergency rooms.

    This issue came up during the Clinton-Obama debates and was the basis for Clinton saying that Obama's plan would leave 15 million people uninsured. (Clinton's plan didn't cover illegals either.)

    Obama's health plan does not cover illegals:

    Whether you realize it or not, an any person showing up to a hospital that receives federal funds has to receive care regardless of whether or not they have insurance or their ability to pay...

    Since Obama wants to give drivers licenses and free tuition to illegals, what makes you think he's just making a mistake with the 47 million figure? Illegals should be rounded up and deported, as opposed to be permitted to get a subsidized anything from the gubmit. The only money I'd give an illegal, is bus fare to the border.

    He better not give illegals one dime for tuition. That is just plain bull sh1t. Let's take care of our own and let illegals fend for themselves. Honestly, if I was a legal immigrant, I'd be very upset by illegals getting any subsidy from our government.

    I hope your right !
    Bill O'Rielly said O'Bama was covering illegals the other night.
    I just did a google search and posted the NY Times story.
    A few other media outlets had the same story.

    I don't have a problem with anyone getting free medical care at
    the emergency rooms. If they are going to wait 6 hours... they
    must need the coverage.

    I am cold... but not that cold.
