One Big Problem for Obama Health Care Plan

July 21, 2009

That one big problem is that, according to this Newsmax article the Obama health care plan would cover 12 million illegal aliens. Other than finding work, illegals come here for health care. It is all to easy for them to obtain fake social security cards and I.D.’s.

According to a June report by the Center for Immigration Studies, “75 percent of working-age illegal aliens use fraudulent Social Security cards to obtain employment.” (http://www.cis.org/IdentityTheft) And if they are gaining employment through fake cards, then you can be assured they will use them to their fullest for health care.

On Friday the democrats defeated  a Republican-backed bill called the Heller amendment that would have

…prevented illegal aliens from receiving government-subsidized health care under the proposed plan backed by House Democrats and President Barack Obama. (http://www.newsmax.com/headlines/health_care_obama/2009/07/19/237484.html?s=al&promo_code=83A3-1)

The Heller amendment would have required health agencies from conducting simple database checks to verify citizenship. Now what’s wrong with that? If the democrats insist on going forward with this reckless plan, at least they shouldn’t draw in huge masses of illegal immigrants in the process.
