More than 150,000 doctors, health care organizations and others have flooded the Federal Register with comments condemning a Trump administration plan that would make it harder for immigrants to maintain their legal residency status if they seek federal assistance for food, health care or housing.

Norway requires immigrants earn $47,000 a year to come in.
Socialists need to be consistent in their utopias.
Follow the money. The “150,000 doctors, others” want to keep the taxpayer money flowing to themselves “on behalf” of the immigrants.
Send the bill to the 150K a-holes who oppose the common sense course of kicking non-American leeches off of welfare.
You are just a wallet to libs/socialists.
You are their husbank, they are like modern wives.
Meanwhile, the same foreign medical racket people are rejecting many real Americans who need help, especially real American men. ...not to mention their big push for gun control and every other cause of the radical, anti-American left.
Why? Because the “medical industry” is a very wide brush, and includes an abundance of crazy democrat liberals.
This country is FLOODED with foreign-sourced physicians who have imported their parents/relatives who then went on the public dole!
Single Payer without co-pays or partial premium buy-in is a recipe for YUGE medical financial fraud if not treatment fraud.
TOTAL LOOSER plan.
Notice the “...and others”
Meaning Media sMatters Flying Monkeys and the usual Pigs-in-a-Basement making themselves look like thousands
The American medical (and particularly pharmaceutical) system is a government-run cartel.
Just as I thought, they are worried about losing federal dollars and job losses.
Every state will feel the impact of this rule change, but none more so than California where roughly one in every in every four state residents are immigrants. The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research warned in a statement released Tuesday that California residents could lose $1.67 billion in federal dollars as a result of this policy change, and that large loss would have economic reverberations for not only health-care companies but also for farmers, landlords, financial services companies, grocers, food production companies and more.
Those job losses and the corresponding drop in sales of food and other goods and services would result in a loss of $2.8 billion in spending. Like the changes to the U.S. tariff policy, this type of broad policy shift can have devastating consequences, Ponce said.
Forgive me but isn’t things like government assistance, welfare only for Citizens, not non citizens, the hell?
One defrocked pill-pusher turned FBI informant, and 149,999 others would make it true.
I love how they wrote this to sound like 150,000 doctors wrote in opposition, when it appears to be that the combination of doctors, health care organizations, and OTHERS (clearly including leftists and activists) totaled together = 150,000 (if that figure is accurate).
This isn’t about a lack of compassion, or anything remotely like that. We live in a world in which genocide is still a risk; people starve; children are neglected, abused, sold into slavery, and killed; drug cartels torture and kill people just south of our border; and hateful people seek nuclear weapons. We have to protect ourselves and our way of life, AND, we do not owe it to others to destroy ourselves for the sake of appearing ‘fair’. Further, in a world in which things like the above happen, we have a great responsibility to stay strong and solvent as a nation, so that we can be a source of stability in an unstable world.
Lots of libs in medicine but I can tell you that most docs are conservative. The elites occupy administrative and academic positions like in all areas. We have to take these people on and defeat them.
Open borders or a welfare state, can’t have both.
These must be the doctors that make all the medical mistakes we done heard tell of.
The more diseases we import the more $ for the doctors
