Yet another incentive for illegals to stay. And, why aren’t the employers of these “migrant workers" responsible for their healthcare?

Quote:
On September 9, 2009, while addressing a joint session of Congress, President Obama told the nation that his so-called health care reform legislation (Obamacare) would not cover illegal aliens, saying: “The reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.”

On Tuesday, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced it was awarding a $28.8 million Obamacare grant to 67 community health centers, many of which offer free care to ‘migrant workers,’ in other words…illegal aliens.
Joe Wilson was right

Yes, it was there from the start, the illegals would be given free health care but are not required to pay anything in.

It's the American chumps who are expected to pay for insurance or pay the penalty, that was never going to apply to illegals, they will pay no premiums, no fines for not having insurance.

They wouldn't be dirt cheap servants if the employers of them had to actually pay for their support. They are dirt cheap servants because they are heavily taxpayer subsidized.

Yes, we MUST pay, while illegals continue to be coddled. What the hell is wrong with this country? Obamacare offers tax-funded healthcare to foreigners who brazenly flout our laws, while our own citizens will be penalized for non-compliance. It’s total insanity.

Yes, it really makes you wonder. How much is it again that Americans failing to purchase insurance will have to pay -- yet anyone here illegally isn't expected to buy insurance at all, and faces no fine, yet has complete access to all the healthcare they could want.

Same as is done now, a citizen may end up losing his home or take on life-long debt for a hospital stay while illegals will never be sent a bill, never be expected to make a co-pay. It's absolutely insane.

It seems pretty clear that Obama was referring to the actual subsidies in the bill, ya know. This is apparently about some tiny grant toward facilities that may or may not treat illegal immigrants.

The "benefits" are not part of the bill, the bill is just funding the community health centers. It will fund hospitals, too, and - omgcanyoubelievethisoutrage - they don't check immigration status in ER's either.

Uh, yes, under $30M out of a piece of legislation that will cost many billions. That is, in fact, relatively tiny. The amount of care that will actually go from this money to illegal immigrants is even tinier.

What is Obamacare, if not the new healthcare law?
