"Speaker Pelosi and the Rules Committee have broken the promises that Pres. Obama made that illegal aliens would be excluded from any part of a new federal health care plan.

The loopholes that are being allowed in H.R. 3962 would be yet another major incentive for illegal foreign workers to break immigration laws to take jobs from American workers"

My honest opinion is that your loopholes are akin to trying to pick fly***** out of pepperjars. But hey, that's your job, to discredit health care reform any way you can. So have at it.

Pelosi is scrambling to gather the needed votes to get this abomination thru the House, so she'll be trying to appease any group with the numbers. Of course this thing is not online for 72 hours before the vote as promised...she's tweaking it on an hourly basis to buy the votes.

By now, it should be obvious to all you left wing loons with your hands out looking for a free ride, that the UHC doesn't have a chance in Hell of passing. The smart people outnumber the fools and the freeloaders, so we will save you all from yourselves..!
The good news is, only three more years and we can vote the spin less cowardly socialist out of office.
The healthcare needs to be fixed, but not by the method the buttheads who run this party.
The solution is simple, tort reform, and Insurance company competition. But those losers in charge won't touch on that, because all of their money comes from lawyers, not to mention, many of our leaders are lawyers. Why would they cut off their money tree, when they can take your's to pay the bills.....!
Wise up left, your party is OVER...!

The general rule is that if there is a loophole, no matter how small, everyone will use it.

I remember hearing the same tirade a few years ago when Republicans were talking about having a permanent majority.

You don't believe this ? Pelosi has, all along, been on the side of the immigrants.

The illegals will be allowed to buy from the pool with their own money.

There's nothing made up about that whether you like it or not.
It's going to happen. Hispanics make up a large portion of the Democratic voter pool and if they want to maintain control then this WILL happen.

snippet:
"The controversy surrounding illegal immigrants remains "a work in progress," Rep. Nydia Velazquez, a New Yorker and chairwoman of the Hispanic Caucus, said after a mid-day meeting in Pelosi's office.

As drafted, the legislation permits illegal immigrants to purchase coverage with their own money inside the insurance exchange that would be created — a provision that the 23-member Hispanic Caucus wants retained in any final compromise that reaches Obama's desk."

Let's get some clarity on this.

Quote:
Obama met at the White House with several Hispanic lawmakers who oppose any prohibition on the ability of illegal immigrants to use their own money to purchase health coverage in a new government-run marketplace.
