Would-Be Illegal Immigrants: Please Come To U.S. So We Can Give You Free Health Care

I sure hope illegal immigrants – in whatever countries you inhabit (and that certainly means you too, Mexico) – realize that we Americans love giving away free goodies to non-citizens.  Call it our “But wait!  There’s more!” introductory offer to would-be illegal immigrants.

Being “American” is really overrated anyway.  And to even CALL YOURSELF “American” is really just a prejudiced way of trying to separate yourself from all the “citizens of the world.”

Health care isn’t cheap.  So we should give it away to as many people as we can.  If we utterly bankrupt ourselves in the process, it’s no big deal, right?  We were going to do that anyway, after all.

We should change the inscription on the Statue of Liberty:

“Give me your sick, your cancerous, your diseased masses yearning for free health care on the American taxpayer’s tab.”

Don’t worry.  Democrats are working on just such legislation.

Obama Health Plan to Cover 12 Million Illegals

Sunday, July 19, 2009

By: David A. Patten

On Friday, Democrats moved one step closer to giving free health insurance to the nation’s estimated 12 million illegal aliens when they successfully defeated a Republican-backed amendment, offered by Rep. Dean Heller, R-Nev., that would have prevented illegal aliens from receiving government-subsidized health care under the proposed plan backed by House Democrats and President Barack Obama.

The House Ways and Means Committee nixed the Heller amendment by a 26-to-15 vote along straight party lines, and followed this action by passing the 1,018-page bill early Friday morning by a 23-to-18 margin, with three Democrats voting against the plan.

The Democratic plan will embrace Obama’s vision of bringing free government medical care to more than 45 million uninsured people in America – a significant portion of whom are illegal aliens

According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, costs under the Obama plan being proposed by the House will saddle citizens with $1.04 trillion in new federal outlays over the next decade [NOTE: The Associated Press revised that figure to 1.5 trillion].

Congressional Democrats and Obama have argued that their health plan is necessary to contain rising health care costs.

But, last Thursday, CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf testified before the Senate Budget Committee and warned lawmakers that the proposed “legislation significantly expands the federal responsibility for health care costs.”

A key factor increasing costs is that Democratic plan provides for blanket coverage to as much as 15 percent of the U.S. population not currently insured, including illegals.

Democrats had insisted throughout the health-care reform debate that illegals would be ineligible for the so-called public option plan that is to be subsidized by taxpayers.

“We’re not going to cover undocumented aliens, undocumented workers,” Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, told reporters in May. “That’s too politically explosive.”

Republicans, however, point out that the Democrats, by refusing to accept the Heller amendment, would deny health agencies from conducting simple database checks to verify citizenship. Many states give illegals driver licenses, which will be sufficient to get free health care under the plan.

Critics also contend that millions of illegals who already have counterfeit Social Security cards or other fraudulent documents. There is no enforcement mechanism in the legislation, experts say, to prevent illegals who use fake IDs to obtain jobs from also obtaining taxpayer-subsidized health insurance.

GOP representatives introduced the amendment to provide a way to weed out non-citizens from the program.

A description of the amendment on Heller’s Web site state it would “better screen applicants for subsidized health care to ensure they are actually citizens or otherwise entitled to it.”

The Web post added, The underlying bill is insufficient for the purpose of preventing illegal aliens from accessing the bill’s proposed benefits, as it does not provide mechanisms allowing those administering the program to ensure illegal aliens cannot access taxpayer-funded subsidies and benefits.”

The Heller amendment would have required that individuals applying for the public health care option would be subject to two systems used to verify immigration status already in use by the government: The Income and Eligibility Verification System (IEVS) and the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program.

The two systems cross-reference Social Security numbers and employment information to establish whether an individual is a U.S. citizen.

Critics: Free Health Care Means More Illegals

A recent Rasmussen Reports poll found that an overwhelming 80 percent of Americans oppose covering illegals in any public health care bill.

Anti-immigration activists say the availability of low-cost benefits, including health insurance and in-state tuition, will only lure more immigrants to come to the United States.

Political analyst Dick Morris, in his recently released best-selling book “Catastrophe”, warns that giving illegal free health care will lead to a flood of new illegals who can take advantage of such a benefit not offered in their home countries.

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration, agrees with that sentiment, writing, “Each state and federal elected official must know that illegal aliens should not be given licenses, in-state tuition, mortgages, bank accounts, welfare, or any other benefit short of emergency medical care and law enforcement accommodations before they are deported.”

But a small fraction of illegals end up deported, as many make widespread use of fake IDs to easily gain access to government benefits programs.

“Experts suggest that approximately 75 percent of working-age illegal aliens use fraudulent Social Security cards to obtain employment,” wrote Ronald W. Mortensen in a recent Center for Immigration Studies research paper. Mortensen says one of the big misconceptions about illegals is that they are undocumented.

James R. Edwards Jr., co-author of The Congressional Politics of Immigration Reform, recently wrote on National Review Online that “it’s hard to envision how health reform can avoid tripping the immigration booby trap.”

Edwards says none of the legislation under consideration actually requires any state, federal, or local agency to check the immigration status of those who apply for the program. […]

One of the ironies of the proposed legislation is that it would fine American citizens who opt not to purchase insurance coverage, but would exempt illegals from such fines. This is presumably due to the fact that they are not supposed to participate in the program anyway.

Even if no illegals were likely to benefit from health care reform, Democrats have made it clear that amnesty is the next item on their ambitious legislative agenda.

“I’ve got to do health care, I’ve got to do energy, and then I’m looking very closely at doing immigration,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., declared in June.

Reid explained the urgent need for amnesty in terms very similar to those that Democrats have used to press for health care reform. “We have an immigration system that’s broken and needs repair,” Reid said.

Immigration expert Edwards, for one, says health-care reform may itself need serious medical attention before it is healthy enough pass through Congress.

“The American people may soon realize how much health reform will benefit immigrants and cost the native-born,” he writes. “When that happens, the volatile politics of immigration could derail universal health care.”

If you oppose any of this, you’re a racist.  In fact, if you oppose allowing your children to go hungry so the food from your table can go to hungry illegal immigrants, you’re a selfish racist.  Why should YOUR children matter, you damned bigoted ego centrist?

Ten percent of the population born in Mexico now live in the United States – and the other ninety percent is knocking at the door.  And let’s not forget that there are a ton of Latin American countries behind Mexico.  YOU OWE THEM!!!  You owe them ALL, no matter how many come.  How DARE you hold out on these people???

There are millions and millions of people wanting to swarm across our borders, and they absolutely deserve every possible amenity we can provide them.  It’s just common “welcome, neighbor” courtesy, after all.

If you haven’t sold your car or, better yet, your house, so that you can provide complete free dental care to an entire extended family of illegal immigrants, you may not call yourself a “racist,” but it’s only because you are obviously too bigoted to know any better.

If there is anything else we can do to make it worth your while to cross our border, please let us know.  Because as long as Democrats are in charge, we will do absolutely anything we can to make it worth your while.

Let me say this one last thing to entice you.  As George Borjas, Harvard University economist and immigration expert at the Kennedy School of Government put it:

Being without work here [In the United States] is still far better for most people than being employed in Central America.

Come on in!  We LOVE being suckers here.

Thank God for Democrats.  After they bankrupt the United States, Mexicans will finally be able to take back New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, California, Texas, and Colorado.  In fact, Mexico will probably be able to buy those states back for the same $15 million that we gave them for it – as long as its in pesos and not in the U.S. dollar which will of course be valueless by then.

Pretty soon liberals won’t have to feel guilty for living in a successful country.

I sure hope after the U.S. becomes a banana republic that Mexico and all the Central American countries are as willing to play the sucker for illegal American immigrants who try to flood across their borders.

  1. Brittancus Says:

    The meat and potatoes of this health care crisis is saving money, and a quality of care that everybody can participate in? The amount of cold hard cash spent on doctors, hospitals and a subsidiary of middle men goes into the trillions of dollars annually. Health care is a major part of the GMP, because our system of health care contains very little preventative medicine and–EVERYTHING–to do with keeping the status quo well furnished with dollars. The AMA has ruled the roost since the 1920’s and allowed very little alternative medicine to surface amongst the now multi billion dollar industry such as Cancer. A good example is the Rife machine that was heralded by many doctors in the the 1930’s, but because of its was a new innovation to combat disease it disappeared, with its inventor ostracized and black listed by the medical Federation. The medical profession suddenly come to the realization, that perhaps this new medical tool could cut down the patient line at their office. Instead of the research being immediately picked up by the AMA and studied, it was consumed in ugly controversy and vanished from public view.

    Not having been really sick in the United States, I dread entering a hospital here for serious surgery. Most of my experience is in England and Australia over my early years. Television, radio and the newspapers are already building up a crescendo of negative ads, about the quality of care in Canada, Britain and other industrialized nations, because the special interest lobby doesn’t want their lucrative world shaken. So now I want to clear up the radical propaganda and just downright lies enforced by millions of dollars spent to frighten the population, specially aimed at the senior citizen. Both countries Britain and Australia are a fine example of health care distribution. With England, my place of birth, the National health Service (NHS) was created in 1948 It is a service which offers free access to health care to the entire population as a right of citizenship, regardless of the ability to pay. It is a service which recognizes only one criterion for allocating resources to individual patients, that of need as defined by the professional providers of health care. It is a service, furthermore, which is overwhelmingly financed out of general taxation, and which is thus a powerful instrument for redistributing money from the working population to the sick and to the old. Until the 1950 it worked extremely well, until the importation of commonwealth workers to drive London buses and run the British Railway

    In 1956, London Transport began to recruit directly from Barbados, inviting men and women to become bus conductors, underground staff and canteen assistants. London Transport recruited in Barbados until 1970 and extended the scheme to Jamaica and Trinidad for a year in 1966. Britain agreed in principle to join the European Economic Community effective Jan. 1, 1973. The “Single Market ” that was created in 1993 states that people, money, services, and good can move freely within the European Union. Currently over 450 million EU citizens are provided with these options. In spite of the restrictive immigration policies which have been in place since the 1970s in most Member States Of The European Union, large numbers of legal and illegal migrants have continued to come to the EU together with asylum-seekers. Taking advantage of persons seeking a better life, smuggling and trafficking networks have taken hold across the EU. It was the end to me of the generations of English Pounds, Shillings and pence currency and the introduction of decimal coinage. Good, wholesome health care came to a sudden halt, with the free movement of foreign labor by the globalist agenda, that now threatens the stability of the European common market.

    As a young man I remember getting the flue, and arriving at the local doctors office. Back in the 50’s, you could choose your physician and sit in the reception room , with perhaps 10 other sick patients. The nurse in charge sat at a desk and greeted new arrivals as they entered the office, which was in most cases a large, residential house. When the bell rung you was ushered into the doctors office, who was already looking at your medical record. After an examination, just like in the United States, the doctor wrote the prescription for medicine and you were on your way. If it turned out that your condition required further examination, you received a not from the doctor, with an appointment at the local hospital. But times have changed now and my distant relatives, tell me that because of the continuous import of legal and illegal commonwealth and other countries masses. From what I understand, like never before England, Ireland and Scotland, have become overwhelmed by immigrants. London specifically, is not the place that I once new as it has become jammed with traffic and unholy mess of spiraling crime, never before seen in the England.

    The adverse American health care special interest lobby now have plenty of ammunition, to demonize the once great British National medical care services. Even my relatives agree that the system has rapidly deteriorated from what it was once? I participated in national pool, paid my National Insurance stamps as my employer did and I was always rewarded with decent medical care. On several occasions I ended up in the cottage hospital and their was never a cost applied to it, never a ream of paperwork. No doctor, no hospital or specialist ask me for my Social Security number, drivers license or if I was covered by a predatory for-profit insurer. Unlike America I never had to worry about a debt collector, or being summons to a bankruptcy court. Here, I know actual families who ended up under insured and have spent years fighting with insurance companies. The average American family can suddenly find themselves backed-up, with hospital and doctor bills at any time, even when since Moses they have been methodically paying premiums and co-pays and other extraction techniques adopted by the Insurance companies.

    I certainly don’t agree with every new policy that is under consideration by the majority Democratic leadership, headed by President Obama. When I like hundreds of thousands of other honest immigrants wait for an employment visa, sometimes for years. The inspection process of biographical data, the FBI background investigation, the physical examination and the rest, doesn’t make the sincere immigrant very favorable to those who just literary slip past the US Border Patrol. To me it’s a complete outrage to all of us, who respect the Rule of American law and the omnipotent Constitution of the United States.

    The majority of Naturalized citizens cherish, with great servility that we have been endowed with this great countries freedoms, protection and security. This is not conveyed to me by most of the politicians that we voted into office. Each one when taking the Oath of office, states with their hand on the great book, to protect the citizens of the United States from both enemies foreign and domestic. This hardly bares water, because they are continually genuflecting for all their worth, for campaign contributions, money and gifts and the potential of incumbents ideology of a long career in politics. They have a powerful money machine behind them–THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY–that have all the cards?

    The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (42 U.S.C. § 1395dd, EMTALA) is a United States Act of Congress passed in 1986. hospitals and ambulance services must provide care to anyone needing emergency treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay. The only problem with is, that the federal mandated law never pays the full amount to the institution, if any, so the hospital passes it on to other patients, the insurance company? You guessed it? The good, old gullible taxpayer. This is now the massive problem that surfaced in England and Europe as millions of foreign born have swarmed the shores of half a dozen governmental health care institutions. The main culprit, as here in the United States is the ominous attraction of companies, who identify cheap labor with high profits. Why give benefits like health care to illegal foreign workers, when the American taxpayer can be hit for higher taxes? It seems like that both political parties agree with this summary, because right now if–IF– a health care bill is passed with a government run health agency for the poor, low income–it also means the 20 million illegal immigrants squatting here. So really is no better off. It just means higher taxes for the working class. It certainly does mean a small tax token for the wealthy amongst us? Of course the most wealthy amongst us are the businesses that hire cheap labor, and without any fear of contradiction, they will find a loophole? The mega industries have always found a way, not to pay very few taxes. much of their ill-gotten gains is spirited into off-shore accounts, so the IRS in most cases cannot get to it, or even know about it.

    Another federal mandate forced on the taxpayer through the court system was obviously In the Plyer Vs. Brown case Texas law which withheld funds from local school districts for educating children not legally admitted into the United States and the authorization of these districts to deny these children enrollment, violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution. So now California–the now SANCTUARY STATE– has been seriously damaged by the courts, because literary millions of foreign born children–ILLEGAL OR NOT–swallows up billions of dollars. The schools have become overcrowded, underfunded and embarrassment to much of the country. The teachers are required to spend their precious time on the children of foreign nationals who cannot comprehend English. So the obvious outcome is American children are less educated, and have plummeted to the bottom of the performance chart. Going to pick up my relatives son in K-12, was like visiting a third class nation.

    The blame must be slammed in the laps of the parasite businesses, who seem to think however illegally they have a right to hire foreign labor for the workplace. Second is the all prevailing courts who have fashioned laws for minorities, and not for the American public as a whole? Chief Justice Burger was joined by Justice White, Justice Rehnquist,and Justice O’Connor in dissenting, saying that while it was regrettable that Congress had been lax in its enforcement of the country’s immigration laws,it was not the Court’s responsibility to make up for that laxity. So therefor they judged the law against the common good of the millions of illegal aliens who broke our laws, and the American taxpayer is forced once again owing to the corruption and utter indifference to their countryman from their side of the fence into ours. Yet another law sided with a foreign invasion force is the Birthright law, which should never have been passed. The children born in the United States to illegal alien mothers are often referred to as “anchor babies. these children are U.S. citizens at birth, simply because they were born on U.S. soil. Any female who is is pregnant and like thousands of other women who enter the United States illegally annually, knows that giving birth in the U.S. means her child will be an “anchor baby” and granted instant U.S. citizenship. For this women it means her child will qualify for a cornucopia of federal, state and local benefit programs.

    They are called anchor babies because, as U.S. citizens, they become eligible to sponsor for legal immigration most of their relatives, including their illegal alien mothers, when they turn 21 years of age, thus becoming the U.S. “anchor” for an extended immigrant family. From the beginning the mother can Thousands of pregnant women who are about to deliver come to the United States each year from countries as far away as China and as near as Mexico so that they can give birth on U.S. soil. Some come legally as temporary visitors; others enter illegally. Once the child is born, they get a U.S. birth certificate and passport for the child, and their future link to this country is established and irreversible. The answer lies in how American jurisprudence has interpreted the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.

    The 14th Amendment was added to the Constitution as part of the post Civil War reforms aimed at addressing injustices to African Americans. It states that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the United States” and was crafted so that state governments could never deny citizenship to anyone born in the United States. However, when the amendment was crafted, the United States had no immigration policy, and thus the authors saw no need to state explicitly, what they believed was understood. The phrase “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” was intended to exclude from automatic citizenship American-born persons whose allegiance to the United States was not complete. In the case of illegal aliens who are temporarily or unlawfully in the United States, because their native country has a claim of allegiance to the child, the completeness of the allegiance to the United States is impaired and logically precludes automatic citizenship.
    These Immigrants to the United States are far more likely to use welfare (programs such as Medicare/Medicaid or food stamps) than native-born American families. Nationwide, non-native households are 59% more likely to take advantage of a state or federal welfare program than a native household. Whether by intention or short sightedness of the government, no real numbers are available. The globalists and free open-border traders have seen to that, although our own government and the liberal press always offer the number of 13 million. But this estimation has been amply displayed in newspapers, for the last 7 years.

    The need to curtail illegal immigration prompted Congress to enact the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986. The IRCA toughened criminal sanctions for employers who hired illegal aliens, denied illegal aliens federally funded welfare benefits, and legitimized some aliens through an amnesty program–EXCEPT THESE LAWS NEVER WERE ENFORCED. The real enigma lies in the wording of the 1986 law? The IRCA toughened–CRIMINAL SANCTIONS–for employers who hired illegal aliens, DENIED ILLEGAL ALIENS FEDERALLY FUNDED WELFARE BENEFITS. Neither the federal government, nor state county have denied most benefits to illegal immigrants. That is why one state–California–is involved in a monstrous budget deficit? That is why Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger refuses to sign any legislation for higher taxes, in a collapsing economy that was a financial icon for the whole of America. Bright lights are on at night in the Democratic-Liberal assembly building in Sacramento and has so far failed to pass any budget agreement. I wish them luck as they try to find relieve from the crushing pressure of $24.5 billion dollars, that they have imposed on themselves from the tax and spend politicians that infest the state capitol. City manager Andronovich demonstrated to the people of Los Angeles county, that $11 billion dollars went to underwrite the impoverished, considerable numbers being illegal alien families.

    California has been overrun with millions of illegal entrants, as with Arizona and other border states. An the ingredients of federal law has been a breeding ground for entitlements that have been gravely compromised by pandering to illegal families. The federal government has control over immigration law for the United States. But by not addressing this abuse, fraud with the funds that state and local governments must provide to anchor babies amounts to a virtual tax on U.S. citizens to subsidize illegal aliens. By not closing this loophole, the federal government in effect rewards law-breakers and punishes those who have chosen to follow the rules and immigrate legally. Allowing illegal aliens to give birth to American citizens, in effect, makes citizenship a license for welfare.

    It would be untrue to accuse just the Democrats for this, because all politicians have been involved in distracting–THE PEOPLE–from the real issues that cost them a lot of money. The population falls for these trickster’s every time, so they can hit you with either higher taxes or give huge tax reimbursements to their corporate comrades. Illegal immigration is a major depletion of every tax treasury, throughout this land. Giving any kind of AMNESTY, will enhance the predictable–OVERPOPULATION. The complete neglect of our interstate highway system, tunnels and bridges is just the slow eroding of our infrastructure. In the near future the population growth will explode, to over another hundred million people. Look at it this way? it took from the time of the pilgrims, to our unsettled economic recession of today, to reach a population of 305 million? Within no more than 40 years we could reach an estimated population, according to the US census 435 million people. IT would be an unmentionable catastrophe to open the doors wide at the border, giving millions of illegal immigrants expressway to a path to citizenship. You must decide the future of future generations, because just my ranting will have very little influence on the power brokers in Washington. Call your Senator or Congressman and impress on the people you vote into office that you want an alternative to the predatory health care insurers. You want the right to choose? That includes the Universal government run system, that certainly isn’t any worse than the profit insuers we have now. That you also want your political representative to curtail any path to citizenship, but to enforce with rigid authority E-Verify, police right to arrest 287(g) enforcement of illegal aliens. Tell them you are a voter and convey to them, as you voted them into office as you can remove them.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    There are two issues you present: 1) Your support of socialized medicine,which I reject. And 2) Your support of dealing with the massive problem caused by illegal immigration, which I support.

    People should read your article to find out more about how unrestrained immigration has been a cancer on your national support systems, just as it largely is in our own support systems.

    But let me deal with where we disagree – on the benefit of socialized medicine.

    I’ll just zero in on a few sentences that summarize your view:

    Not having been really sick in the United States, I dread entering a hospital here for serious surgery. Most of my experience is in England and Australia over my early years. Television, radio and the newspapers are already building up a crescendo of negative ads, about the quality of care in Canada, Britain and other industrialized nations, because the special interest lobby doesn’t want their lucrative world shaken. So now I want to clear up the radical propaganda and just downright lies enforced by millions of dollars spent to frighten the population, specially aimed at the senior citizen. Both countries Britain and Australia are a fine example of health care distribution.

    Some of the most successful “radical propaganda” ads feature citizens of Canada who experienced horror stories when they should have experienced quality health care. I’ve seen Shona Holmes – who would have been DEAD if she hadn’t come to the US to get health care when her own system wouldn’t so much as scheduled her for an appointment until AFTER she would have died had she stayed. Another Canadian woman, Lin Gilbert, waited THREE YEARS to get back surgery that she would have had in a matter of one or two months here. Natasha Richardson, the actress who died in Canada, died because the Canadian hospital lacked MRI machines that virtually EVERY American hospital has, and so had to be put on an ambulance for a 3 hour ride because they ALSO didn’t have life flight helicopters that would have been available here.

    There’s a video documentary with a brief article documenting just how truly bad the Canadian system is. Available here.

    In the area where I live, I routinely meet Canadians and Europeans who come to the U.S. for surgeries or treatment rather than get it in their own countries. Just last week I met a German man who was here for chemotherapy.

    In a column in the Toronto Globe and Mail, Lisa Priest explores: “Why Ontario keeps sending patients south.” Clogged arteries? Need an angioplasty? You’re going to be on a bus for Detroit, because Ontario doesn’t offer that procedure. Have a high risk pregnancy? You’ll be on the same bus. Calgary has woefully inadequate neonatal care.

    Recently, the leader of Italy came to the US to avoid his own country’s socialized system and get the finest care in the world.

    So if you don’t like our health care here, Brittancus, with all due respect, go back to England, the land of the rotten teeth. First sentence from the Daily Mail in the UK: “The parlous state of NHS dentistry under Labour was exposed last night after it was revealed 1,000 people in a village ended up on a waiting list for a dentist.”

    has a massive collection of news articles from British papers decrying the terrible health care conditions.

    Here’s a New York Times – that right wing propaganda machine – that has an article titled, “In a Dentist shortage, British (Ouch) do it themselves.” British are pulling out their own teeth. THAT’S change you can believe in!!! Just the sort of thing we should have here!!!

    You want propaganda? I’ll give you propaganda straight from the mouth of Hillary Clinton. On the campaign trail, while demagoguing health care, she told the story of a woman who was about to give birth and felt sick, but was denied care because she lacked health insurance and couldn’t pay a hundred dollars for treatment. Shortly afterward, she was rushed by ambulance to the same hospital, where the baby was stillborn. Several weeks later, the woman herself died from complications.

    Now THAT’S propaganda. The story was false. The woman was NOT turned away from the hospital. She had health insurance. She received obstetrics care. Hillary Clinton searched for an example of the heartlessness of the American health care system, and had to fabricate one. Go to the CNN article and read the story. The title is “Clinton drops hospital story from stump speech.”

    Now, you want a TRUE horror story? Take Oregon’s socialized system. Take Barbara Wagner, who was diagnosed with a recurrence of lung cancer. Her doctors recommended a specific drug, but woe, the state-run Oregon Health Plan refused the request for the drug, since it does NOT cover drugs that are meant to prolong the life of individuals with advanced cancer. Oregon’s socialized system RATIONS health care.

    But Oregon DOES offer assisted suicide, like good little fascists, so Barbara got a letter from the state offering to pay for a doctor who would help her kill herself.

    Unfortunately, Barbara was not ready to have herself put down like a sick dog. But that was her only option, until a private pharmaceutical company heard about her dilemma and stepped in to provide Barbara with medicine FREE of charge.

  3. Martha Lichtenberg Says:

    I paid with my hard earned cash for medical insurance, I made the co-payments, I have five beautiful children, I paid for everyone of their births! It was expensive! I WANT A REFUND!!! My family has roots here going back hundreds of years, we are law abiding citizens who have fought for this country! I WANT A REFUND!! Go ahead, google how many illegals gave birth here not paying a dime in; 1992, 1993, 1995, 1996 and 1998, when my kids were born,
    why did I have to pay? OH MY GOSH, racial profiling perhaps? I’ve been profiled for being white, this is sad and not right! I WANT A REFUND!! Is it my turn to whine and use the race card?

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    You know, you’re right, Martha. I paid for insurance, too. And my premiums have kept going up. In fact, I took PERS (a government health program for state employees) because they made all kinds of promises of how my benefits would never be cut, and my premiums would never go up. And guess freaking what? Premiums up, benefits down.

    They profiled me, too. And then they cut my benefits and raised my costs to give it to someone of a different politically connected race.

    And let’s not forget the poor honkeys in Tennessee, whom Obama allowed to rot.

    You’re right. It IS our turn to whine. And it’s pretty easy to do, too.
