The same reason Mexico in particular exports their poor to America. Why should their government care for their poor when their neighbor to their north does it for them, seemingly so willingly.

Dear Mr Alan

Application of ITPP for horses is fast and simple without any risk. All you need to do is dilute 650mg in water and give your horse to drink 6 hours before the race or inject the horse using a syringe. Please note that this has to be done 6 hours before the race so that the product can work effectively and can not detectable in the post-race tests,many trainer now used Itpp that is why the perform well now.Also we have most customer from U.S.A and Australia,
waiting on respond via [email protected]

Today in the news an illegal got busted for using false I.D. She claimed she had Lupus and received disability payment's, she had also received 200 thousand dollars in School Grant's to attend Cal State. She lived with her mother also illegal also on disability for fibromyalgia. She was obese as was her mother, living free on Americans taxes. This element of human being are many in number's, who use this Country as a bank account, when millions of Legal Americans can barely get by anymore.... They need to be imprisoned and deported never, never to even think of returning.

America and the corporations of American have enough $$$$$ to give everyone free healthcare.
Your attitude and feeling that this country owes you anything is the reason we are in the proverbial crapper. We need to help those who are down and out, however that help should not be turned into a way of living. Americans need to get off their tails and work to provide for themselves and their families, and if that means removing interlopers in order to get them back to work...so be it.

All things considered, health care should be available to everyone on U. S. soil......everyone.

It is available, however it should not be free, because that means somebody else will be picking up the tab, the taxpayers, who are already propping up too many people who choose to be dependent upon others.

I do not provide health insurance to my employees, I can't afford it, they just have to go to the emergency room at Indian River Medical Center.
By law they have to treat them.

I guess this expenditure bothers you because it is spend on services to illegal which is legal with current law and Constitution.
.
Right now the yearly cost of medical treatment (including out pocket fees and payments to insurance) is four trillion dollars!
Poverty cost money. The amount we spend on the poor in Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, Baltimore, Newark, Memphis, Mississipi, Alabama, Louisiana, South Carolina, Georgia, Kansas City, St. Louis, etc. is huge!!!
.
Demographically, the elderly makes a significant fraction of the poor in the US. Their medical requirements is order magnitude larger than the young poor. The bad behavior and poor diet of the poor make them more costlier to attend to. The poor tend to be less educated and have a tendency to birth at a faster rate than the middle or upper class.
.
Geographically, the biggest drain on medical cost in the US is North, South, and South East (including Florida). Again places where there are more legal than illegal.
.
Thus, your complaint is based on a particular group that in the global aspect of things is miniscule. If you really care about medical cost, you should be after those retirees in the South, AZ, CA and other locations.
