Bullshittery! 5 billion is set aside for migrant workers and their families it doesn't identify them as 'illegals' so we have a play with words a legal technicality lol. Don't you hate lawyers double speak?No free health care for illegal immigrants in the health bill
It may be the longest chain e-mail we've ever received. A page-by-page analysis of the House health care bill argues that reform will end the health care system as we know it: "Page 29: Admission: your health care will be rationed!... Page 42: The 'Health Choices Commissioner' will decide health benefits for you. You will have no choice.... Page 50: All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free health care services."
Most of the e-mail's claims are wrong, and you can read our extended analysis to find out why.
One of its most bizarre claims is the one about free health care for noncitizens, "illegal or not."
We read the bill and its legislative summary, and could find nothing about free health care for anyone, much less noncitizens.
To confirm our examination, we turned to Jennifer Tolbert, an independent health care analyst at the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan foundation that studies health care reform. Tolbert has read and analyzed all the major health proposals, including those of the Republicans, and the foundation provides point-by-point analyses of the plans on its Web site.
"No one's provided with free health care. That's ridiculous," she said.
Page 50, which the e-mail references, is part of Section 152, which includes a generic nondiscrimination clause saying that insurers may not discriminate with regard to "personal characteristics extraneous to the provision of high quality health care or related services."
The section says nothing about "non-US citizens" or immigrants, legal or otherwise. In fact, the legislation specifically states that "undocumented aliens" will not be eligible for credits to help them buy health insurance, in Section 246 on page 143.
The bottom line here is the e-mail is making things up. The bill does not say anything close to "All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free health care services." We rate this chain e-mail statement Pants on Fire!
lesson....never believe anything you read in a right wing chain email.
It's also illegal for a doctor or hospital to ask if a potential patient is of legal status did you know that little gem?
Once the migrant and his families members tell their extended families about the FREE healthcare bonus do you think more or less will come into our country? Why do you think they are pushing legalization of these people? Why did California suggest aliens should be able to serve on juries?
