This is absolutely amazing to me, people complaining about a lack of free healthcare for illegals. Illegal means you should not be here, period. These people want to be here illegally and get welfare at the same time. We need to round up all illegals now and send them back to wherever they came from period.

Tina,

You don't get it.

---Illegals are NOT human.

You obviously don't live near or among them. If you're so worried about them, take 30% of your paycheck and donate to them.

And from what document have you gleaned that. Certainly not from the U.S. Constitution or any of the amendments. Not from any state constitution.
If all LEGAL American citizens are not recipients and/or cannot afford health care for themselves, why should they pay for the care of illegals?
Better get your priorities in order.

We welcome legal immigrants to this country no doubt. Illegal aliens are a financial drain, California has had almost one hundred hospitals close. In this time of financial stress we don't need to take in freeloaders.
Sorry, but I personally am sick and tired of it.

I don't care about illegals.

Don't care.

Stay in your own country.
Fix your own problems.

Deport them all NOW.

15 year freeze on all legal immigration.

No, for all human beings. Especially in an advanced country like the United States.

You know what I'm sick of? I'm sick of everyone bitching and moaning about how much we spend on immigrants when their labor forms the backbone of our economy, keeps our prices down, and they suffer the stigma we have placed upon them as lesser human beings.
I am also sick of us worrying about social spending when the real elephant in the room is that we spend 51% of our taxes on security and defense (15x more than China, in second place), plus another 17% on internal Homeland Security measures. If you want to be angry about where your tax money goes, that's where it goes. Not to immigrants.

I bet you're one of the bottom 1/3 in this country that pays no net taxes. Easy to say spend here and there when it ain't yours. Remember vote Obama 08, the guy has a horrendous record on lowering taxes but hey whaddya you care?

Angry? I'm jumpin' thrilled that's where most of it goes. There's nothing more important for the government to do than provide for homeland safety and defense. That is what government is best at, and is it's chief responsibility. The real elephant in the room is social spending, and much of it is wasted on illegals.

They all have the "right" or "choice" of going home and making improvements in THEIR countries. WE OWE THEM NOTHING. If I was in the same quandry as an Illegal in Mexico I would receive NOTHING and neither should they. Want to come here??? Then get the hell in line. And Hey Tina Why should we pay for non citizen's health care when over 50 million citizens in this country have none and what' more who is going to pay for it??? My family and I have no health care and I acknowledge it as MY problem not the governments. So we should insure the world??? You should be put in a straight jacket and sent to your nearest mental health facility to receive the treatment you so desperately need.

She expects those of us who work should foot the bill. Liberals have all sorts of ideas as to how others should spend their money.
