Piling on ObamaCare v?.0

Although I'm loathe to pronounce it dead, ObamaCare seems to be in the same position as its projected "recipients:" the operation was a success, but the patient died. The problem is that, as each special interest group demands its pound of flesh, the likelihood of any bill actually passing diminishes.

Case in point:

"A group of Hispanic lawmakers on Thursday will tell President Barack Obama that they may not vote for healthcare reform unless changes are made to the bill’s immigration provisions."


As readers may recall, the PelosiCare version of "reform" would bar illegals from receiving taxpayer subsidies to buy a policy from the new Insurance Exchanges. ReidCare goes even further, prohibiting illegals from purchasing through the Exchanges at all. The Hispanic Caucus, however, is threatening to hold ObamaCare hostage unless illegals are able to both buy from the Exchanges and to take money from those who are actual, you know, legal, taxpaying citizens.

Hasta la vista, baby.
