D.C. Council member David A. Catania has found an additional $20 million in the budget to continue offering free health insurance to 19,000 undocumented immigrants, reversing a proposal by Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) that could have restricted them from receiving emergency care.

Catania (I-At Large), chairman of the council’s Health Committee, has made full funding of the Alliance Insurance program a chief priority as the council prepares for final budget deliberations.

But that’s about half as much as Columbia University charges their students for health care...

American Airlines will give you a First Class seat for a one way overnight nonstop trip to Mexico City from Dulles Airport for $929.00.

That eliminates this years need for medical insurance for these guys as well as next year's and the next year's and so on.

Do a 10 year ROI on that sucker ~ that's $100,000 cost avoidance over 10 years with $1,000 (includes taxifare) cost this year (0).

Well, I Need not continue!

See how easy it is to DEPORT people to Mexico.

Wouldn’t it be a better idea to return that “found” 20 million to the taxpayers? After all, IT’S THEIR FREAKIN’ MONEY!

Meanwhile, millions of Americans have lost their heath insurance or had it reduced to near worthless.

“D.C. proposes more money for illegal immigrant care”

I propose less money for illegal immigrant care, just enough to keep them stable until they can be deported.
