Obamacare or Hondacare?
(The Illegal alien Acambaro Crime Family of Arkansas)
by Kenneth Wallis: The health care / illegal immigration issue has risen again, thanks to 2 letters sent by about 20 or so extreme leftist in the House of Representatives led by Congressman Mike Honda. The 1st letter is a request for quicker access to Medicare benefits for legal immigrants, benefits that we can't even afford for U.S. citizens. Here's a quote from letter below. Notice the lack of concern over the tenth amendment of the U.S. Constitution (The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people).
Congress recognized the harm of a waiting period for vulnerable residents and partially addressed the situation by allowing states to opt to cover lawfully residing immigrant children and pregnant women without a five year waiting period in the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (H.R. 2) enacted earlier this year. Although this was a step in the right direction, these children are not guaranteed access to affordable health care and their coverage is vulnerable to budget cuts and ideological changes to state policy.
The second letter is even worse, it demands that Obamacare cover illegal aliens. This is in defiance of the majority of the American voters, most legislators, and even Barack Obama himself. Of course Obama was lying when he claimed that illegals wouldn't be covered, because there is no enforcement language in any of the 5 Obamacare proposals. The Honda letters however, wants an Obamacare bill to state that illegal aliens should be given health care coverage. Here are some of the reasons.
Immigrants have been shown to seek substantially less medical care even while carrying insurance than native born Americans. In fact, immigrants spend 55 percent less on health care than U.S. born individuals. Thus, immigrants' contribution to the health care system would buoy the affordability of health care for everyone else in this nation.
First off, we have no idea where Honda got this stat, probably from The Urban Institute, a leftist organization connected with Obama. The stat doesn't separate legal immigrants from illegals, nor does it show how many immigrants are in America in comparison to U.S. born individuals. The idea that poor, uneducated, neglected citizens of other countries are going to be a benefit to the health care system or any other system has already been proven to be a lie. We have had hospitals along border states close because of illegal aliens.
The threat of pandemics and other infectious diseases demonstrate particularly well the folly of politicized public health policy.
Why do pro-illegal immigration supporters like Honda not care about the threat of pandemic when talking about building a wall, or more border patrol, or troops on the border, or raiding corrupt businesses, or requiring proof of citizenship to enter our schools, or requiring citizenship for tax payer funded benefits, or forcing reform in other countries? Anyone with a pandemic disease is treated by our medical system regardless of status. The letter fails to mention that there is a difference between treatment, which everyone gets, and payment for treatment. Of course if a version of Obamacare or Hondacare is passed, we will have more illegal aliens and thus more 3rd world diseases. Here is the full letter.
