    Health Care Debate Revives Immigration Battle

    Health Care Debate Revives Immigration Battle

    By JULIA PRESTON
    The Obama administration took an overhaul of the country’s immigration laws off its legislative agenda this year, but the prickly issue of public benefits for illegal immigrants has resurfaced in the health care debate.

    During the summer recess, members of Congress faced persistent questions from constituents worried that health care changes could leave taxpayers footing medical bills for illegal immigrants. President Obama has not been able to extinguish the doubts despite giving repeated assurances that illegal immigrants would be excluded from any subsidized benefits under proposals before Congress.

    Democratic lawmakers, growing exasperated, have taken to reading directly from the House and the Senate bills at town-hall-style meetings.

    “I don’t know how it could be more clear,
    Matthew 19:26
    But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

    thats why the goal was to pass Obama care first THEN pass Amnesty

    it looks cheaper that way ...

    this way it apears that Illegals will be denighed Medical care, but can still go to the emergency room just like they did in the past, using them as a general practicianer, bankrupting hospitals

    pass Obama care .. then give Amnesty for 25 - 40 Million Illegal Aliens

    Gee, the NY Times doesn't mention the amendments proposed by some Republicans to try to close the loopholes in the bill. Hmmm....
