That's a pretty horrendous typo.<quoted text>
No...it was a typo. But, we all know that fraud is rampant within the system and that ineligible people receive taxpayer-funded benefits every day. Further, your correction does not erase the fact that "legal" immigrants will receive taxpayer-funded benefits denied to U.S. citizens.
Worse, as soon as the WH/Congress pushes through their current amnesty proposal...MILLIONS of "suddenly-legal illegals" will immediately be eligible for these and other taxpayer-funded benefits.
Make no mistake...U.S. citizens are being gouged daily in the wake of destruction left by the progressive agenda.
However, it would appear as though the solution to this one lies at the state, rather than the federal level. It is up to individual states to determine whether or not to expand Medicaid--in generally in their best interests to do so.
But if, as you suggest, it is so incredibly easy to just get on Medicaid whether legally qualified or not--wouldn't folks just go and sign up and get on anyway?
