"Hispanic Caucus Tells Pelosi That Health Bill Just Right To Give Full Coverage To Illegal Aliens

By Roy Beck, Sunday, July 26, 2009, 10:28 PM

"You know we are in trouble when the supporters of a massive taxpayer health benefit giveaway to illegal aliens say the current House plan is just right. The authoritative ROLL CALL publication says Hispanic Caucus Members told it confidentially that the Caucus told Speaker Pelosi not to change a thing because as written illegal aliens will get the benefits.

CHC Presses Pelosi to Include Illegal Immigrants in Health Bill

-- Headline about CHC (Congressional Hispanic Caucus) by Jennifer Bendery in the Roll Call newspaper (July 24, 2009) 

Interestingly, the article also says that CHC Chairwoman Nydia Velázquez (D-N.Y.) said that only "documented immigrants" were discussed.

But the reporter got quite a different story from other CHC Members who talked off the record.

A CHC member, who requested not to be identified, said the group is urging Pelosi to ensure that everyone — including illegal immigrants — will be able to receive services . . . 'We’re pushing to include everyone in the health care bill. Everyone,' said one CHC member.

-- Roll Call 

So, what does CHC want Pelosi to add to the House Health Bill to make sure 12-20 million illegal aliens get full taxpayer-paid health coverage?

Nothing.

That is because CHC apparently feels that the House Bill as written pretty well guarantees the coverage. Look: 

Asked if CHC leaders will ask Pelosi to specifically spell something out in the bill to address illegal immigrants, the Member said no. Rather, the Member said the CHC simply wants to make sure the bill — as drafted — doesn’t prohibit illegal immigrants from accessing care.

-- Roll Call 

Our allies on the Hill have been making just this point.  Speaker Pelosi and others have been trying to say that the House plan doesn't cover illegal aliens because it doesn't specifically say that it does.  Our allies, however, point out that unless legislation specifically bars illegal aliens from anything -- and requires verification -- illegal aliens always end up getting the benefit.

The fact that the Hispanic Caucus appears to be satisfied with the language the way it is suggests that our allies are right.

Roll Call reported that the CHS emphasized to Pelosi that she must block any language that would restrict the federal health plan to illegal aliens.

Once again, it appears that the Hispanic Caucus cares more about illegal aliens than Hispanic American citizens.

We will continue to provide multiple opportunities through the week for NumbersUSA members to fight this incredible reward for immigration lawbreakers.  At a time when negotiations are breaking down because of the gigantic projected costs of the House plan and as lawmakers try to find ways to cut benefits to -- and increase taxes on -- U.S. citizens, it is most telling that so many Members of Congress are insistent on protecting beneifts for illegal aliens.

Any federal health plan must include verifiable prohibitions against inclusion of foreign citizens who are illegally in this country.

Venusians and Martians also need to be healthy, but maybe after they are healed they should be deported.

If this is the case then all we have to do is to look at California to get an idea where the economy is headed (but most of us already know that). Everyone blames California's financial meltdown on giving illegal aliens BETTER benefits than its citizens. So we're going to do the same thing on a national scale since that worked out so well?!? Alrighty then!

There are no policy mistakes being made, it is deliberate. This is our fate in the New World Odor.

This is a tough one for me. As a Nurse, I've had to work with several patients, whom I know were illegals. After coming into the hospital for what would be minor procedures for us usually ended with finds of very serious illiness among this group of people. Of course, treatment for them is the same as for anyone else.
As a Nurse Casemanager, I know that my hospital is going to eat the bills of the illegal immigrant because they are uninsured. We coould have little recourse. Yes, the hospital gets so much grant moneys to take care of the uninsured, but by fiscal years end, we may blow that budget because of the overload of uninsured patients who are both legal or illegal.
I have my thoughts and beliefs that my edge on the cusp of being selfish, bias or prejudice.

Thanks Lantern!!! That was a funny show, wish they had more that good now. If they were as serious about deporting illegals as they are taking away US citizen's Constitutionally guaranteed rights, they would have rounded them up and slammed the border shut about 30 years ago. However they're too useful to (as Rick said) New World Odor.

Thanks Rick!! Nowhere in the history of the US has any other nation taxed its citizens into poverty to guarantee US citizens free health care. Heck nowhere in the history of the us have US citizens (military excluded) crossed the border en masse to sponge off what another nation set aside for its citizens. I would expect if that happened we'd be sitting in Canadian, Mexican, etc., jails for a long time.

Rick ... "There are no policy mistakes being made, it is deliberate."

It's not humanitarian, it's not an oversight, this is designed to loot the treasury, bankrupt the US into non-existence, period.

Thanks Litebets!!! One of my best friends for over 30 years is a nurse practitioner who's worked for several health departments, for several hospitals also. Generalizing what they've said over the years it's difficult enough to fill needs for our own citizens much less overburden it beyond its capacity.

I've always been in favor of locking the borders, deporting and letting whoever wants to become a citizen do it the way it's supposed to be done. Forget amnesty, forget fast tracking whoever is here. We must take care of our own legal citizens first.

Konane, you are one of the few who understands what is going on. It's not about health care or immigration or the environment; it is about dismantling the US.

Thanks Em!! No indeed we don't beginning with the military who've followed orders .... now information is leaking out based on false pretense .... who fight to make bankers fatter. Parent's kids come home in body bags, maimed, shell shocked (PTSD), Gulf War Syndrome and Agent Orange effects the last two of which are denied so the bankers don't have to pay.

I have the utmost respect for the military which simply follows orders as handed down.

Read an article about chem trails (comtrails) which named chemicals being sprayed into the atmosphere over the US. Dunno if it's correct but apparently there has been a long term suspicion the powers that be are up to no good.

Do they have US citizens' well being uppermost in their minds when creating current legislation 'for our own good' to tax us out of existence to make bankers fatter.? Me thinks not.

Thanks Rick!! If a person not politically astute observed a few simple 'markers' about the North American Union as a result of NAFTA (SHAFTA) read some of the objectives of communism, most of which have been implemented over time ..... they wouldn't have to stick their fingers very far in the air to determine which way the wind flows.

Deliberate in slow motion before our very eyes to prevent alarming slumbering sheeple as they're herded toward the abyss.

Not scientific but read that about 15% of the earth's population is not susceptible to brainwashing due to being ET alien origin (didn't say how far back). ROFLMAO guess that says a lot!!!
