Free Health Care For Illegal Immigrants - Paid For By You
The Message could not be clearer:
Illegal and Undocumented Immigrants are the Democrats top priority and you will pay for it.
Every Democrat At Thursday’s Debate Said They’d Extend Health Care Coverage To Undocumented Immigrants. Not one of them addressed the Homeless Crisis in America.
President Donald Trump found time to take to Twitter from the G-20 summit to take to Twitter when Democrats backed healthcare for undocumented immigrations Thursday night.
“All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare. How about taking care of American Citizens first!?” the president said as Republicans in the previous Congress had failed to pass the Senate’s version of a reformed Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
“That’s the end of that race!” Trump tweeted, perhaps indicating he will hit the campaign trail hard with repealing and replacing Obamacare as he did in 2016.
“A lot of you have been talking about government health care plans you proposed in one form or another. This is a show of hands question and hold them up so people can see. Raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants,” NBC moderator Savannah Guthrie asked the ten candidates, all of whom raised their hands.
Vice President Joe Biden was then asked how he has evolved on the issue since he served with President Obama, who intentionally chose to exclude illegal immigrants from the Affordable Care Act.
“You cannot let people who are sick, no matter where they come from, no matter what their status, go uncovered,” Biden said, when asked to explain the change in philosophy. “You can’t do that. It’s just going to be taken care of, period. You have to. It’s the humane thing to do.”
Southbend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg cast his support for the proposal in fiscal terms, suggesting that it would ultimately prove cheaper to insure the millions of people in the country illegally rather than allow them to continue to rely on emergency services.
“This is not about a handout,” he said of providing illegal immigrants with publicly funded health care. “This is an insurance program. And we do ourselves no favors by having 11 million undocumented people in our country be unable to access health care. But, of course, the real problem is we shouldn’t have 11 million undocumented people with no pathway to citizenship.”
On immigration, Democrats want open-borders while having no policy on how to handle the influx of arrivals, other than to provide them with free health care and a path to citizenship.
