Yeah, I guess. As much as I abhor this development with Newt, there is no perfect candidate. We just better accept this fact to be true about each one of these Republican candidates.
Newt could also just be plainly playing politics to garner some portion of the hispanic vote.
I’m just tired, as a nurse, of seeing them in our hospitals.
Took care of a 59 year old unemployed woman this weekend from El Salvador who had stayed with us for days while they dithered over giving her a heart transplant. (ended up not giving it to her).
However, she was on Medicaid/Medicare and was receiving those benefits — although I’m sure she was illegal. (how does that happen?) However, she spoke no English and was illiterate in even her own language. Gimme a break ...how much did THIS woman contribute into our system? She’s probably been here about 10 years. What it cost just to hospitalize here for 10 days — oh, some $30K likely.
So, she was turned away, but will likely go next door to Maryland to see what they’ll do for her. They’re serial benefit seekers ...
There are a lot of different stories with these people ... there needs to be a very CLEAR procedure for dealing with them all.
