BOHICA: Democrats Want To Give "Free" Health Care To 12 Million Illegal Criminals

This is so far beyond outrageous it is utterly insane, and I consider it to be nothing less than flagrant criminal behavior on the part of congressional democrat congress-critters. Not that this as anything new, mind you, but once upon a time, they at least tried to conceal it.

Not anymore.

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.

Of course, anyone with an IQ above room temperature knows full well that there is no such thing as "free." Despite the assertions by the demorats that they will tap the "wealthy" to pay for all this insanity, eventually the cost will trickle down to the rest of us. It always does.

What is even worse, should ObamaCare pass, it is sure to attract even more illegals into this country:

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.

Just make sure you are current on your blood pressure medication if you do so.

At a time when millions of American citizens are losing their livelihoods, their retirement, their medical insurance, their cars, their homes, and their good names, our democrat-controlled congress, who bears the brunt of the responsibility for this entire mess to begin with, is looking to screw us into paying for the health care for millions of criminals who have broken our laws by entering our country illegally.

I say we screw them right back. Every last one of them.

Keep sharpening those pitchforks, folks.
