Will we pay for illegals' healthcare?

by Kenneth Wallis: There are 3 ways in which Obamacare can deal with illegal aliens. First, it can state in the bill that illegals are allowed to access taxpayer funded health care system. This is what Rep. Honda of California and several other representatives demand in a letter written to Nancy Pelosi. This would encourage illegal immigration into the U.S., allow/require even more fraud to occur in the medical system, and force U.S. taxpayers to do the job of lazy corrupt regimes. [Full text of that letter]

Another way for Obamacare to deal with illegal aliens is to require enforcement language. This would require proof of citizenship in order to access the health care benefits created by Obamacare. For those who have paid attention, you know that efforts to amend any of the Obamacare bills with enforcement language have been stopped. What many people don't realize, is that even if enforcement language were to be added, it could be removed by the U.S. Supreme Court while allowing the rest of Obamacare to go through. Furthermore, an enforcement language amendment wouldn't deal with the other problems created by Obamacare, such as the 56 government organizations, privacy issues, and IRS code changes. [Source]

So how does Obamacare currently deal with illegal immigration? HR3200 states that illegals are not allowed access to benefits. SEC. 246. 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. However, as stated earlier, there is no enforcement language. When Joe Wilson said, "You Lie" during the Obama speech, on paper he was wrong, but in practice he was right. Even if some insurance companies/a public option company/hospitals were to require citizenship for access, leftist groups like ACORN who have connections with the government would fight to remove such requirements. Courts, local governments, and Federal Bureaucracies could do the same.

We know this because it is exactly what happened to the housing market. Banks were forced by HUD, ACORN and other groups to give loans to people who couldn't pay them back, many of them illegal. Government run Fannie/Freddie then promised the banks the loans would be secure. Efforts to reform this system were blocked by politicians such as Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Barack Obama.Taxpayers were forced to pay for the mistake, while Capitalism was blamed, and the politicians who kept the system alive were given more power. Recent ACORN videos show them still helping people who can't afford housing get home loans, among other things. If one of the 5 Obamacare bills is passed, health insurance companies will be forced to provide services to illegal aliens; not just treatment services, but payment services. You will pay for the additional cost.

So what do you do about all this? The simple answer is that you demand Congress kill all forms of Obamacare. America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 (HR3200), America's Healthy Future Act of 2009 (The Baucus Bill), and other forms of Obama's health care plans need to be voted down. There are no amendments that could fix this disgusting attempt to put government control over 1/6 of the U.S. Economy.  The Baucus Bill is currently before the Senate Finance Committee, which AR Senator Blanche Lincoln is a member of. If it leaves the Senate Committee process, Lincoln and Pryor will vote on the bill. John Boozeman, Marion Berry, Vic Snyder, and the Representative who could have killed HR3200 Mike Ross; will be voting on HR3200 when it goes before the full House. Call them, email them, try to meet with them, and support their opponents if they don't stand up and state that they will do everything in their power to kill this bill.

U.S. congressional candidates need to state that they will kill bills like this and show that there are better ideas. Republicans should state and waive bills such as The Patient's Choice Act of 2009 (HR2520/S1099) every time they are on TV talking about healthcare. The reason many Democrats claim there is no other plan on many issues, is that Republicans sit around like idiots not stating their bills. They need to be a party of ideas instead of a party that just says no.

Just when the health care debate couldn't get any more intense, Alan Grayson brings up the nothing argument. This is a tactic where Obamacare supporters claim that those who oppose Obama's plan have no plan of their own.

After you watch Grayson's claim, you can do a youtube search for- You lie! to President Obama. Rep. Joe Wilson R-(SC) and pick the video from realclearpolitics. In 1:57-2:00, You can see the pieces of paper being waved and you can see that they are not blank.

Grayson is lying, and like Obama, is still pretending that Obamacare is the only healthcare plan. HR2520, The Patient's Choice Act of 2009, does what Obamacare bills don't do & in only 21 pages. Tort reform, interstate insurance, & reducing Medicare/ Medicaid fraud.
