Here we go again with the “immigrant” BS. We do not need to include illegal aliens in our healthcare plans, because they are not citizens. We certainly don't need any additional incentives for them to remain in this country, or for millions more to flock here seeking benefits.

Democrat senator Max Baucus today in a session with reporters told that his plans will not offer health insurance coverage for undocumented immigrants because it's "too politically explosive." We find it unfair to deprive undocumented immigrants from health insurance proposed reform plan while we are quick to use their low cost services throughout the nation.Moderator cut: shortened, copyright protection
Baucus Health Insurance Plan Unfair To Immigrants, Affordable Health Insurance

"Show compassion and be All Inclusive".. Maybe these Illegals need to show compassion for the U.S. Citizens that they are bankrupting and the health care system that they are bringing down.. What about the Legal U.S. poor working single mom who's son just broke his leg OR got bit by a poisonous Spider and needs to go to the Emergency but the Emergency room is TOO FULL or has been CLOSED DOWN due to the costs inflicted by Illegal Aliens, to take her son so she has to drive 20 miles to the NEXT Emergency room where they will have to wait up to 12 hours to be seen because the Emergency Room is PACKED with Illegal Aliens and their large abundance of kids that have The Common Cold?

Shhh! We need to provide illegals with every tax payer-funded social and financial service or else we will be called 'racists' and lose votes from the pro-illegal crowd.

As long as it satisfies the ethnocentricists, big businesses, Mexican government and the pro-illegals it's 100% acceptable!

As the middle continues to finacially fail there will be nothing left for them to take to give to the illegals, its already started at the job level/housing crash, as the border states go broke the voters will see the true cost of the illegal immigrant invasion. old saying, cant get blood out of a rock.

Then maybe the poor ilegals will finally take some pride in their own country by fixing the beloved mexico or those that say make an effort to become americans and then we can respect each other.

I was also shocked. I guess there is some hope for the Dems.

Someone needs to point out to the illegals that they already have health care plans back home.

Mexico for example has nationalized health care, they don't give them completely free medical care but offer it on a sliding scale. Those who make little are expected to pay little. Medical care in Mexico is much much more affordable than it is here.

You have to understand, nearly 60% of Mexico believes that the southwest of the U.S. belongs to them anyway. They are just reconquering what the large majority believes is theirs. They are fixing it up, by trying to be squatters in a really nice loft apartment directly above Mexico's disastrous fiesta...
