None for illegal aliens too. I bet California will give them free medical and for anybody else who can cross the border.

Nor should undocumented immigrants get access to health care reform. If they want free medical care become a legit documented worker or citizen to become elidgable for low income health care.

People have to understand the ILLEGAL undocumented workers are NOT just here to escape what ever they are here with a sense of entitlement and intent to get as much as they can off the books or for free. Meaning they have no real intentions of immigrating.

Oh well, can't play both sides of the fence-pun intended.

You people are nuts. One of the rewards Illegals are given for ignoring our immigraiton laws is unlimited free tax slave funded health care.

You can barely get into an emergency room in So Cal. They are swarming with illegals getting all their families health care FREE at the expense of the pitiful citizen families. Hee Hee Hee.

If citizens are NOT stupid or weak minded enough to pay for illegals to get all sorts of free stuff where they are the should come to California. It's ONLY a Blue State! The State is already hundreds of BILLIONS in debt so nobody cares what anything costs.

Illegally colonizing Calif. is like hitting the Lottery for Illegals. The citizens here have no spine or backbone whatsoever and NEVER stand up for their families best interests.

It was several years ago at this point but I remember CNN report found illegal immigrant who used an ER around a dozens times and was proud of it but answering any questions.

ER service is not mandatory to those without insurance unless they have a life threatening condition. That means if you got the sniffles you sniffle some more. The hospitals in Calif probably treat those ILLEGALs because they might not only have fellow countrymen patients but there is probably somekind of reimbursement or tax write offs for treatment of uninsured patients. But this goes back to the problem of somebody else is paying for it.

Let's see, what has the obam's amnesty program netted the illegal aliens? 2 years of green card. Hell, it's going to take them at least that long to find one! LOL

Yes, I know, if the obam wins, there will be special programs that provide special jobs for these illegal aliens. After all, it isn't their fault. I wonder how far you or I could go through life with that mantra?

I understand they have had to close some emergency rooms because of this. What a shame, like education, CA's hospitals use to be one of the top in the nation...now it is the arm pit! I grew up there. I only go back for funerals, brides & grooms should know better!

Anyone who shows up at the emergency room wih an emergency should be treated. Cost should not be an issue. The law says we can get treatment.

Law says you can get treatment for a life threatening but mandatory treatment of the sniffles, tummy ache or boo boo isn't required.

I know US citizens without insurance sent home from the ER with sky rocketing blood pressure and misc complaints. Even with a recent history of hospitalization for misc ailments. If a state like Calif voluntarily choses to treat all uninsured ER patients probably for reimbursement of somekind that is on them.

Take full advantage of the pitiful losers who elected the unpatriotic garbage who are squandering American citizens money on you. If Americans had a spine or a back bone Obama wouldn't be in the White House...and you wouldn't be getting "special privileges" for ignoring American Law.

The fact that Voters were pathetic enough to elect Obama to be President is not your fault. Take all you can get from the Suckers who Obama is forcing to PAY for it.

You Racists need to Man Down. Cowardice is vital to accomodaing Illegals.

Californian's stood in silence as their Public Schools plummeted from 9th to 47th in quality education in service to the massive number of illegals. In Southern California, 13 major Hospitals were force into Bankruptcy serving non paying Illegals over the last few years.

Lower your standards. You must accept every tragic out come as all your family deserves if you are going to be seen as a "good" Democrat.

Embrace the Disgrace as though it is all your families deserve. Obama 2012! Obama 2012!

Why should legal US citizens be subject to lawsuits and/or denied medical care but an ILLEGAL alien gets their boo boos and sniffles taken care of like that. California?

I guess you can't be sued when you don't have a valid home address to or permanent phone line for the bill collectors and lawyers to pursue. Hah! A perk to being an ILLEGAL alien, avoid obligations.

Gee Juan, who do we bill for your free healthcare? Since you do not have a SSN, us US citizens eat those costs too? Typical illegal thinks they are entitled to free everything. I wonder who gave them that idea? Stupid liberals!!!

Don't stoop to demeaning the Illegals. The relentlessly unpatriotic citizen Commnity Organizers have driven the Illegals to DEMAND rights invented for the express purpose of DIVIDING Americans against one another.

Diabolical Citizen Community Groups like La Raza and ACORN are using the Illegals to drive a wedge between Americans. Like all of the UnAmerican Class Warfare crap we are seeing from the Obama campaign.

Divide and Conquer.
Very Progressive.
Very Obama!

I'm as close to a citizen as one can get. I was brought to the states as an infant, I've been Americanized and deserve all the benefits a citizen gets.
