More than 300 doctors and other health professionals from across the country gathered Thursday at the Arizona Capitol to protest the state's anti-illegal immigration law, saying it prevents a vulnerable community from receiving necessary medical care.

Not with our tax dollars.

Let the doctors come out of pocket for them.

More than half of all illegals are from Mexico. Mexico has a health care system that provides subsidized care for Mexican nationals. Why should Mexicans be entitled to tap into our health care dollars as well?

This is ridiculous.

Why of course. They don't like their own nationalized health care with it's very reasonable rates, they are given health care but have a sliding scale based on their incomes, but the rates are low. In their own country, they can see a doctor and get their medicines for less than $30 a visit.

But why pay anything when you can come to the USA and expect to have to pay zero? Here we don't expect them to pay a dime, usually they aren't sent a bill, aren't expected to put down a real address, and nothing is done about them using fraudulent Medicaid cards when they go to a physician's office for health care. They commit major fraud, no big deal.

And not only that, they will demand amnesty and easy citizenship and even the big deadbeats will get in on it. Imagine if amnesty meant paying up all past hospital and medical bills?

Such BS.

A friend of my family is Brazilian but also holds US citizenship. She goes back to Brazil every year for check ups and to see her dentist because she cannot afford to do so here.

What about the Americans who are vulnerable and cannot afford health care? They don't matter do they?

Let's give illegal aliens everything they need!
