President Barack Obama said he would be okay with illegal immigrants being treated in emergency rooms in some situations under his health care plan.

they already are being treated
And suing the doctors for malpractice, too, as I recall
Where else is he going to get his henchmen to strongarm the American peoploe?
So Air Force One will now scour the world looking for people who need healthcare but can’t afford it?
I suppose they can stay in Obama’s mansion while in the country.
I guess people have forgotten that during the campaign he called for drivers licenses for illegals.
If they want free medical care let them go home to their own countries and ask THEIR governments to supply it.
Many hospitals simply have shut down their emergency rooms to avoid this problem. They never get paid.
So..now if you really need an emergency room, you will be stuck at the county hospital competing with all the illegals for attention. Good luck, hope you don’t die in the process.
It is best to avoid an emergency room admission. You can do this by faking symptons and getting tested for various aliments before and emergency takes you to the emergency room. For instance..I just had a complete heart work up based on my complaint of frequency of chest pains and shortness of breath. I got a clean bill of health, and the knowledge that I won’t be going to the emergency room for a while. My max deductible for the year was used up..so all it cost me for tests was $60. Well worth it.
Basic decency requires that American citizens not be enslaved for the benefit of foreign nationals who have come here without any permission or invitation.
If you have Alzheimer's, and need an angioplasty:
YOU MUST DIE!
If you are an illegal alien?
Obama will treat you!
I want a life that style I can't afford either. Where can I go and receive everything for free then just hand the bill to my neighbor?...(never mind how abjectly immoral or burdensome TO my neighbor this would be!)
Emergency stabilization is one thing; free care is another. Why was the Heller amendment to HR 3200 voted down?
Emergency treatment enough to get them home, only!
If the emergency treatment is accompanied by deportation, no problem!
Illegals are criminals, Obama. Like you.
Then, many are taken “home” to the nearest bus stop by taxi’s we pay for so their address can never be verified—no bill, free care!!
“I guess people have forgotten that during the campaign he called for drivers licenses for illegals.”
How about this insane statement:
Aug. 2007 - MIAMI — Before 2,000 people at the convention of a powerful Hispanic advocacy group recently, Sen. Barack Obama made a pitch for unity between African Americans and Hispanics. “Our separate struggles are really one,” the Illinois Democrat declared, quoting a telegram Martin Luther King Jr. sent in 1968 to farm-worker activist Cesar Chávez.
*******Mr. Obama compared last year’s massive immigration rallies led by Hispanics to the civil-rights marches of African-Americans in the 1960s, *********and called for the two groups to stay the course in a common fight for equality. To rousing applause at the convention of the National Council of La Raza, he alluded to “one dream” for blacks and Latinos. Later, he cited his Kenyan-born father as an example of an immigrant who came here in pursuit of the American dream.
. He’s also apparently proud of having spoken at the May 1, 2006 event in Chicago; the main organizers of that event have links to the Mexican government with one even being an official with a foreign political party. That same official is a “key organizer” of this year’s Chicago march .
Two years ago, I came home to Chicago to witness the mobilization of hundreds of thousands of citizens and immigrants united in an effort to fix our immigration system. I spoke to the marchers that day, and Senator Kennedy spoke to those marching in Washington. They said to us, “today we march and tomorrow we vote.”
i saw him on FOX (as much as I could stand)
He was asked about covering illegal aliens- he completley denied it, then he said “but of course any child who shows up in a hospital with tuberculosis...blah blah blah “
he has the amazing ability to talk out of both sides of his mouth
and he never hesitate to say “the previous conservative republican administration” started all the mess.
Shrub (yes he deserves it now) should NEVER HAVE LET THEM SUCKER HIM INTO SIGNING ANYTHING 3 MONTHS BEFORE AN ELECTION!!!
Him and his idiot old man- who ruined Reagans Legacy
Isn’t that, pretty much, how we get into this mess treating indigent and illegals in emergency rooms. If this is already a source of the high cost of health care how will costs be reduced?
“Illegal immigrants don’t come here to drive, they come here to work...” ~ BHO
0bongo—typical liberal hypocrite— Loves to be “compassionate” with other people’s money. Not his own. I am taxed to pay these invader’s health care. The other day there was an article about a hospital in debt due to treating illegal aliens with dialysis
Can't we all just get along until we takes down the Man? Perfect time to get rid of "The Star-Spangled Banner," and go with the stirring strains of the Marxist "Internationale!"
I think our charming POTUS ought to head out to Maxine Waters' district and get between a African-American Street Gang and an MS13 Gang and help them get along! "Come on kids sing it with me and Michelle!"
I guess they don’t come here to drive to work. Thanks Hussein!!
