MADRID (AP) — Some 300 people blocked a ring road in the Spanish capital Saturday to protest spending cuts that will leave large numbers of illegal immigrants without access to free health care.
Many undocumented immigrants who do not contribute taxes to social security are, as of Saturday, to lose the national health cards that had entitled them to free treatment

Spain's right: they don't own illegal aliens a thing.

Some countries realize they can't be the healthcare provider for the world. Perhaps one day, the U.S. will come to its senses and stop allowing illegal aliens to fleece taxpayers and bankrupt hospitals.

Spain has money troubles, big money troubles.
We won't see that here though, not for a while.

300 isn't really much of a protest. It sounds like a lot of people are fine with the cuts.

Many of the European countries are having worse problems than even the USA. At least here we get a lot of people who want to work (though it's often under the table and cheapens American labor). In Europe many countries are getting nothing but leeches and some of them are completely different cultures and religions too. People are starting to stand up against this problem and I wish the USA would do it too.

All countries need to take a zero tolerance to illegal immigrants. Any ounce of kindness leads to increased illegal immigration and a sense of entitlement. Why should citizens care about people who show their a$$ in public when they dont get there way.

I applaud Spain and their politicians for this.

Take away the entitlements, and the leeches will return back to their 3rd world hellholes. Spain is for the Spanish, not for the 3rd world.
