Obama's Pan American Health Care

Last Friday, Democrats in Washington were forced to show their hand when it comes to providing taxpayer-funded health care to millions of Mexican citizens, PG 50 Section 152 of H.R.3200. The House Ways and Means Committee nixed a Republican-backed amendment that would insure that whatever health care legislation comes out of Washington will not include health care for citizens of Mexico or any other country.

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.

The House Ways and Means Committee nixed the Heller amendment by a 26-to-15 vote along straight party lines, and followed this action by passing the 1,018-page bill early Friday morning by a 23-to-18 margin, with three Democrats voting against the plan.

Additionally, the Democrats are exempting illegals from paying the same penalty that would be assessed on US citizens for not participating in the government-run health care system. Short of amnesty, I can’t think of a better illegal alien magnet. Instead of removing incentives to illegals, they are supplying them.

Thanks to Rep. Dean Heller (R-Nev) for introducing the legislation that forced Democrats to show their hand when it comes to illegal aliens.

As usual, the media gives this action little attention, paying more attention instead to what Obama and his administration is saying rather than to what it is actually doing.

The fact that Mexicans, if and when they are allowed to vote in the US, would be a solid Democrat voting block has not been overlooked by the Obama administration. Doing that is not an unintended consequence of ‘health care reform.’ It is, by design, politics by the numbers.

  1. It won’t change one’s budget, except to make it less capable to meet the new higher cost that the proposed legislation will have across the board.

    Whether the ‘improvements’ counterbalance the bad aspects depends on whether you feel like voting for bad aspects. ?? Well, actually, neither you or I will have an opportunity to vote for or against it. That’ll be done on Capital Hill.

    And whether one could call socialized medicine an improvement depends on your political bent. If you like Europe’s model, where there is rationing of services and long waiting periods, then I guess you would like it.

    Beyond that, just ask yourself why it is that people come to the U.S. when they need quality medical care quickly.

  2. Send all you earnings to the Obama camp.

    The tax return that used to be a joke is fast becoming the Obama reality.

    What you made this year $

    Send it in $

  3. All ya got is a racist spirit accusation? Save it for the dems that will believe it.

    And Obama saying a police officer acted stupidly was the proper approach. Bet he didn’t read that report either before opening his pie hole.

  4. ‘Rep. Heller made the amendment in a racist spirit’

    Please justify that accusation if you can. I’d bet you a cheesesteak that if Rep. Heller actually ‘made the amendment in a racist spirit’ that there would be nothing else on the news but that until he was run out of town.

    The Left’s use of the race card is the knee-jerk reaction whenever measures to preserve our national integrity are discussed. It’s not about race. It’s about why should Americans pay for Mexico’s citizens?

    Besides all that, even if it were true, how did Charles Rangel (D-NY), the Chariman of Ways and Means handle it? Did he denounce the ‘racist’ angle and say that it’s not about race, and then voice his approval of the amendment, at least in principle? No. It went to a vote where it died along party lines.

  5. I agree with the concept, but Rep. Heller made the amendment in a racist spirit. Immigration reformists would do so much better if they managed to separate their racism from their positions and focused more on the fiscal benefits.

  6. How many times last night did Obama say that he hasn’t read all of the reform bill?

    He’s pushing to pass a bill that will impact us greatly but he hasn’t even had time to read it?

    That’s presidential leadership? God help us.
