Here's the exact text:
"Obamacare cash to 67 community health centers where the money would be used for migrant farm workers. HHS also informed us that the immigration status of said farm workers would not be ascertained before free care was given meaning that illegal aliens would be given Obamacare funding."
Which doesn't rule out the possibility that if a migrant farm worker was LATER found to be ineligible, his benefits would be terminated.
Nice try.

We're not heading into an ice age, you scrambled-brained retardican. More like an age of higher temperatures.

Have you read up on the Green House effect? Obviously not.

Dave is right. Only an idiot would think you can pump tons of carbon residues into the atmosphere and think nothing will happen.

The climate scientists are on our side, not yours.

Mormons Found Guilty on 13 Counts of Prop 8 Malfeasance, Fined by FPPC

It was eventually learned that the Mormon Church coordinated contributions amounting to more than half of the $45 million dollar Yes on Prop 8 campaign, as well as contributing non-monetarily to the campaign by sending Mormon campaign volunteers through the Church's "mission" program and offering use of church ward (parish) properties throughout the state.

The LDS exerts influence on social issues in Utah's neighboring states, as well, creating what is known politically as "The Mormon Corridor," from Eastern California to Colorado, Idaho to Arizona.

The complaint by Karger and CAH resulted in the FPPC's 19-month investigation, leading to today's decision. "They got off easy," said Karger, "but this is only one state. They were involved in all 30 state [marriage] battles. This is just the beginning."

Along with the complaint filed in California, Karger and CAH also filed a complaint "against the Mormon's front organization, NOM [National Organization for Marriage]," Karger said. Maine's Fair Political Practices Commission "voted 3-2 to investigate them and to turn over their donor names which they're required to by law," said Karger. "They contributed another $2 million dollars in that campaign."

NOM is under investigation in the state of Maine for possible money laundering and failing to file the required campaign reports for that state’s Question 1 campaign. Question 1 took away gay marriage in Maine just last November.

First, it's only on a temporary basis until his immigration status is confirmed.

Second, keep guessing as to which president left behind the recession we're in.

All those bail-outs, re-capitalizing of the banks, added unemployment claims came about because of your chimp.

Live with it.

in midsummer, Karger noticed something new. Suddenly, money started pouring in to ProtectMarriage.com , and by August, the group was raising about $500,000 a day. Karger wondered where all the money was coming from. Most of the donors, he soon realized, had never made a political contribution before. Some had given to just one candidate: Mitt Romney. Quite a few were graduates of Brigham Young University. It wasn't hard to connect the dots: This was Mormon money.

No, because official policy is not to give it to illegals.

A temporary error due to fraudulent or erroneous application does not show the policy is different than what Obama said it was.

You are stretching the truth on the basis of bureaucratic error. Error is not policy, you GOP lying dingbat.

Furthermore, once the error or fraud is discovered, no more benefits.

You scumbags will say anything.

Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family gave $727,250 in cash and services to the anti-gay marriage Proposition 8 campaign in California, according to records released by the California secretary of state, including a $100,000 check in late October, just days before the evangelical media empire announced it planned to lay off nearly 20 percent of its employees.

While there has been public scrutiny of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for its attempts to influence the campaign to reverse a California Supreme Court ruling allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry, Focus on the Family and related donors pumped more than six times as much as the Mormon church did into the ProtectMarriage.com campaign, records show.

In sum, the Independent reports, Focus on the Family and its sister groups gave a stunning $1.25 million to the Yes on 8 movement, including $50,000 in seed money a year before the election. It is worth noting that the largest benefactor supporting Proposition 8 was not Focus on the Family. It was the Knights of Columbus, the Connecticut-based political arm of the Catholic Church.
