Why stop with illegal alien criminals? Why don't we just settle the problem by having US citizens pay for free health care for everyone in the world?

We need to get out of all these globalist organizations like the UN, NATO, the G8 or 7 or whatever the hell it is now days. We're just blowing a lot of dough for NOTHING. We should get out of NAFTA and GATT while we're at it. Globalism sucks.

Obamacare explicitly denies insurance coverage to illegal immigrants in Section 1312 (f)(3):

Access limited to lawful residents. If an individual is not, or is not reasonably expected to be for the entire period for which enrollment is sought, a citizen or national of the United States or an alien lawfully present in the United States, the individual shall not be treated as a qualified individual and may not be covered under a qualified health plan in the individual market that is offered through an Exchange.

The truth is you were already paying for some illegal immigrants' care long before Obamacare. It's because of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), signed into law by Reagan in 1986.
More than 100,000 people a year, mostly illegal immigrants, receive "emergency Medicaid" in the 7 states with most immigrants, according to a Kaiser Institute study.
That 100,000 are people with no insurance who go to the emergency room for treatment, and don't meet the immigration requirements for regular Medicaid. "Emergency Medicaid" also applies to legal immigrants who've had lawful status for less than 5 years. The cost to the taxpayer is around $2 billion a year, or 1% of the Medicaid budget.

If it's true that illegal aliens are ineligible for Obamacare coverage and it's also true that Obamacare won't be able to fund itself without raiding the taxpayer, why would we want to add 12-20 million new recipients? Obamacare and amnesty are both stupid ideas but when you put both of them together, it's insanity.
