I'm sorry folks for such a long title. BUT Really, what in the world is going on with the conservative right? Folks marching on Washington to prevent illegal aliens from getting medical coverage? News flash people, illegal aliens come to this country because companies like Tyson foods and Dole Fruits and Vegetables, etc. EXPLOIT HIRE them.
I am really not concerned if they can be treated in a hospital, heck I prefer they go to a clinic (CHEAPER FOR THE TAX PAYER), they being healthy helps everybody else. OR do you not want them to get that flu shot? Want them to NOT get immunizations? Not a smart thing to do. How about we get these companies to actually start HIRING LEGAL IMMIGRANTS (at the least) or FINE Them in a way where they get the point when they look the other way in hiring?
And what the heck is everybody worrying about "people sitting at home watching TV getting MEDICAID? Really, how FEW people is that? I know folks who work everyday who couldn't or can't afford Health Insurance who get MEDICAID, I think it is money WELL SPENT.
Sure in any system you have get over artist, but damn people, unemployment is going UP people are losing the jobs and with those jobs their HEALTH INSURANCE, shouldn't we want to help them as they go along until they are back on their feet? I'm sorry, but I am baffled at the Right on this issue...Just saying...
