Do you think if the U.S. deported ALL Illegal Aliens and stopped the drain/strain they put on welfare programs that the funding would then be available for Healthcare Reform?

With millions upon millions NOT paying taxes and only sponging off of the medical industry and the welfare system I think it would be a great step in the right direction.Do you?

i agree 100% that it would help a lot! i am not sure that it would fund it completely, but it would be the easiest and smartest thing to do to get us on the right track.

I agree 100%....if we,the "common" people see it,WHY can't the lawmakers?

Detached from reality? Pandering for the votes? Pandering to big biz?

Exactly - I voted "yes", but I probably should have voted for "it would help, but not enough" because I don't think there'd be enough money to fund it entirely.
