I'm all for children getting healthcare, I am not for how illegal aliens and their children are getting it.

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

As I was looking around for the, "not so obvious political news," I came upon Dennis Byrnes' piece in the Chicago Daily Observer regarding the Illinois All Kids Health Care Program that was introduced by our indicted former Governor Blagojevich. It turns out the program's enrollment rolls are 75% illegal aliens. This revelation was made by the Illinois Auditor General, William G. Holland in a recent report. Byrne alludes that the report was "insufficiently noticed."


Gee, I wonder why it was insufficiently noticed? Do you think that the taxpayers of Illinois would be very happy about such a revelation? Of course not.


For legal residents and citizens of this country, state and city, this should be another reason to be outraged with the Illegal Immigration / Migration Issue. This is exactly why states like Arizona, and now eleven more, feel the need to pass legislation that not only enforces current immigration laws, already on the books, but eases the economic pressures placed on their state treasuries with a non-contributing group of people taking advantage of it.

Not at all surprising. It's like that everywhere, rarely do illegals bother with paying monthly premiums to have insurance, their attitude is let someone else pay for what they want.

Escondido has a school that is 100% on the free meals program we tax payers cover. Here's a hint, their Parents for the most part don't speak English. Your guess on their Parent's immigration status since learning English is part of it.

It's like saying that you can't remove a tick from your pet once it's on it. What a joke.

This is so not right. And the guilt is laid on people because who wants to see any sick child not cared for. The answer must be to STOP illegal immigration. Send them home. Build a wall. Ask for papers. Fine employers. Guard the border. Whatever it takes. Legals - Welcome. Stay. Illegals - Go Home.

Here is a non-bias account of the problems with this state health care. No where does it mention the 75% of the participents were undocumented aliens.

It discusses all the problems the audit found with the program.

So are you trying to mitigate, or all out deny the accuracy of the OP?

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?

Illegals who come to America should be kicked in the pants for having large numbers of kids and not paying enough in taxes to pay for schooling and other services. This is grossly unfair to American citizens and only breeds resentment. If the shoe was on the other foot and it was illegal immigrants doing the same in Mexico you would expect outrage from Mexican citizens.
