Free Health Care

Obamacare says "Bring us your tired, your poor, your illegal immigrants and we will give you care". Seriously. Washington is using OUR tax dollars to provide free health care to anyone regardless of citizenship or legal status.

Illegal immigrantsTaxpayer Funded Health Care Centers Won't Check Immigration Status

According to CNS News:

“Health centers do not, as a matter of routine practice, ask about or collect data on citizenship or other matters not related to the treatment needs of the patients seeking health services at the center,” Andrews said.

Further, the grant recipients are required to serve "all residents" who walk through their doors.

“The Program’s authorizing statute does not affirmatively address immigration status,” said Andrews. “Rather, it simply states that health centers are required to provide primary health care to all residents of the health center's service area without regard for ability to pay.”

You are probably thinking, this isn't what we were told when Obamacrap was signed in to law.

You would be correct.

“The reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally,” Obama said then.

Of course that was then, this is now.

I suppose the part that does not apply to illegal immigrants is the requirement to buy health insurance.

But why buy health insurance when you can get treated for free?
