Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a former stand-up comedian, almost always throws a silly joke into a conversation. Not this time.
He finds it no laughing matter that Healthy San Francisco, the city's universal health care plan, will continue to be available to undocumented immigrants who don't qualify for health insurance through President Obama's Affordable Care Act but not to U.S. citizens who qualify for it but can't afford it.

It is odd, isn’t it, that illegal aliens can get on SF health plan, but not actual American citizens????
Liberalism is crazy in its reasoning, and when specific policies are established, isn’t it?
This one single piece of horribly flawed legislation has the potential to really wake people up to the out of control nature of government in general.
One of my bigger pet peeves.
Why is this a problem? Is this man RACIST???
this is the first time this clown has said anything I even nominally agree with.
will wonders never cease?
will obamacare be the straw that breaks the camel’s back!
I think it’s time to considering building a stash of cash——so that if the time ever comes that you get really ill, you will have enough money on hand to pay for it-—and balmy boy can go scr#w himself.
uh—make the word CONSIDER. (makes a tiny bit more sense that way-—LOL!)
Before you adopt him for pointing out an obvious problem, wait until you’ve had a chance to examine his solution. Usually the liberal idea of solving a problem involves massive new laws with equally massive tax increases.
Give him time; he’ll re-earn your contempt.
“Bali Nelson, a 48-year-old Hayes Valley resident and U.S. citizen, has participated in Healthy San Francisco since its start. She makes $30,000 a year teaching English as a second language at a private school and has several chronic health conditions that require daily medication...
...Nelson qualifies for subsidies for private health insurance through Covered California. But when she went shopping online, she realized the only plans that come with affordable monthly premiums also come with $5,000 deductibles and high co-payments.
She can’t afford that so she’ll be out of compliance on March 31 when the individual mandate goes into effect. That means she’ll be on the hook for a fine from the federal government and stands to be booted from Healthy San Francisco.
“They’re trying to throw out citizens and legal immigrants - to me, that’s just really unfair,” Nelson said.”
That’s what you get for electing Nancy Pelosi. They passed it, now you get to find out what’s in it.
Right. It’s not that he doesn’t want socialized medicine for illegals, that was the idea. He just wants everyone else to get it too.
What a hoot, the SF chumps are now on the hook paying for a health plan for Illegal Aliens only.
