    Dems Considering Health Care-Immigration Deal ... -obama.php

    Democrats Considering Health Care-Immigration Deal To Overcome Key Sticking Point

    Lawmakers who want to extend health coverage to illegal immigrants will not block the passage of the final health care reform bill so long as the White House offers a substantive promise to start pushing comprehensive immigration legislation this year.

    Democrats who want a comprehensive bill that reforms immigration law but also offers a pathway to citizenship have threatened to vote against health care if illegals aren't included in the new system, making immigration one of the sticking points as Democratic leaders negotiate the final details.

    Democratic leadership aides believe that a firm White House promise of a comprehensive immigration bill will be enough to quell any House dissent.

    TPMDC sources have been telling us that members won't admit it publicly but they are ready to concede on immigration in the health care bill. Political aides in the White House have told key parties in Congress that President Obama wants to see a bill this year, and negotiations are under way for how it would be written.

    A source familiar with the negotiations between Congress and the White House told TPMDC the Congressional Hispanic Caucus will demand an agreement from Obama that health care coverage for illegals who earn a path to citizenship will be addressed in an immigration bill.

    The Senate's health care bill bars illegals from any sort of coverage, a provision embraced after Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) shouted "You lie!" during Obama's address to Congress when the president said that illegals would not be able to get health care under the legislation.

    Those familiar with the talks say any immigration legislation will include various amnesty provisions to allow for health care coverage.

    Lawmakers want to be careful they aren't viewed as giving up on a key goal, but have said they are confident the White House is being honest that Obama wants to see a comprehensive bill this year.

    A source told us that members who have championed immigration reform "aren't actually conceding, just changing tactics" to secure coverage for illegal immigrants whatever way they came.

    Seems to me that these Dems are OK with senior citizens not getting the health care they need, as long as illegal aliens get it? What are they thinking?!?!?!

    Who was the moron Dem who said Republicans answer to health care was die quickly?

    Isn't that what Obamacare would do to seniors?

    Some deal! These traitors will agree to sign off on health care that bars coverage to illegals if the next month, they agree to pass amnesty so there will be no more illegals. So not only do they get their health coverage, they get their citizenship to boot!

    With representation like this, who needs enemies!

    I just got out of a Townhall with Sen. Ron Wyden. He did get grilled by people about E-Verify (he has only voted for 6 month extensions). Wyden likes to talk tough on border enforcement, but with an F Grade fron NumbersUSA it doesn't take a rocket scientist to decipher his real intentions. He's only stalling on the E-Verify issue until CIR can be passed.

    Plus, this was at a retirement villa, so the seniors were up in arms about medicare cuts. Pretty good meeting, overall, considering that the Dems hosted it.

    So expect this from the majority of the Democrats---lots of doubletalk.

    We had to draw lottery tickets to ask questions---but I did have a chance to go up afterwards and ask why he had met with representatives of a non-constituent organization (for foreign citizens). He dodged the question, but I think I will persist at some more town halls.
