You're mixing two different problems.<quoted text>
Question with a question.
So what is the answer?
How is the hospital going to know the status of a patient? Are they going to ask?
Tax payers are going to be assessed penalties but illegals obviously have no penalty.
1. Inadequate healthcare for a segment of the legal population
2. Illegal Immigration and the cost to our society (healthcare, education, taxes, etc.)
Obamacare's scope is point 1 only.
For sure, illegal immigration needs to be dealt with, but it's not the job of the healthcare bill to do it. Only illegal immigration enforcement will solve that problem.
