So because you posted an article that didn't mention the 75% illegals (it actually stes a whopping 70% of costs are due to illegals - not much of a difference), then what is your conclusion? That it never happened?

Nearly 70 percent of costs for medical services in fiscal year 2009 were for illegal immigrant children, but some of those children actually were legal immigrants who could have qualified for federal money.
What percent is some?

No one denies illegals use healthcare, but does it matter if the number is 98% or 9.8%? does to me...may not to you,

No one can deny the fact that if the illegals weren't here neither would their children. Maybe some teens would come alone but not the millions helping to dismantle our social service system.

This article also explains more why Obama is comfortable with just how things are.

Whether it's 98%, 9.8% or .98%, anything over 0% spent on illegal aliens is too much.

I was watchig the sneate heqarings o sates. The conclsio was that Illoinis was i the worse shape of any stae overall. They actually passed bonds to fund the budget and they are one of several states that paid nothing inot their pension fund this year.The liabilty incrase means it could be the stae that actaully deflauklts if any does experts testified. But they said they don't beleieve any will and that at most specail distiqctsa are more likely to because of special projects that have collapse.

The number could be 100% and you would not care because you have your agenda. You know it and it's very obvious. For that reason discussing anything to do with illegal immigration with you is pointless.
