Today the Supreme Court ruled that Illegal Aliens can VOTE in American elections without restriction. Now the Illegals can back Leftwing Candidates who will force the filthy American citizens to squander more and more and more of their families hard earned money on benefits and services for the Illegal Alien hoardes.

Anyone including the undocumented should not have to suffer because of an ailment when medical facilities are available. Many of us go to the Emergency Room because they have to treat us by law. Free health clinics would reduce the medical cost of the U. S.

obviously you know squat about Medicare for seniors that worked a job for 50 years and contributed by paying (not free) medicare taxes. Then when they are eligible to sign up for medicare pay a monthly premium currently just over a hundred dollars a month, have to pay (not free) the unpaid portion of what medicare does not cover. The co-pay is usually a 80% medicare pays and 20% the patient pays. If you want prescriptions then there is a different monthly premium and a co-pay. Where you think the FREE comes from is beyond me. So crow and gripe all you want for FREE benefits, the citizens of this country get NO FREE MEDICARE.

I disagree; medical medicaid should be for American citizens.

GET it in your thick head, NOTHING IS FREE, somebody has to provide the funding for the services rendered. You claim to have a good job and are providing for yourself,(your own words) so why shouldn't YOU PAY for your own services, hmmmm?????

What Government are you talking about???? This isn't Switzerland for Gods sake.... Where they take 80% of your income to give you healthcare for "FREE".... There is no free dude... Ever. We pay through our arses for you and millions of other's that think like you do. You're nut's if you think this Government is going to give you free healthcare. Someday you'll be caught. When that happens, you'll be forced to pay back tax, and the free healthcare you've already received in Pearland. There is no FREE anything.!!!!

racists always misuse economic reason to justify their racism (sickness). don't misuse taxes to justify your sickness. I am in Denmark and Turkish have more private companies than Danes it means Turkish pay much bigger taxes than Danish worker. But here is also popular to be racist, it doesn't mater are you rich or poor immigrant. Even when somebody grow up in immigrant family but he is born in DK and finished school here and got citizenship and make his own business, again, he is marked as an immigrant, newspapers and all people call them immigrants even they are born in DK. when majority of society is racists, it means somebody (like FBI and their rats) care to widespread racism in society. Individual racism exists in every country but systematical racism is developed by those who administrate the state: politicians, police, justice department, secret service, medias, etc. Without them, it is not possible to widespread any kind of beliefs. And racism has one aim: to justify economic exploitation of some community, in the US it is Afroamerican and Latinoamerican community. Think why people are illegal by the law, in order that rich people can exploit them. In EU, Hungarian worked in Germany 6 months and never got any money, police didn't help him, Bulgarian in Switzerland the same, etc, old European countries are equal but they don't accept east Europeans as equal (the same like in history when they tried to enslave East Europeans). So, all people should get medical care, equal chances when they apply for job, etc. If I have my own company, I will decide who will be worker and not politicians, if I decide that Mexican is better than American, nobody should limit my business with political racist decisions. Giving bigger rights to domestic workers is just election idiotic politics and nothing more than it. abolish illegal status of people and they will work and pay taxes and pay medical care. but then you will not have reason to spit on immigrants anymore and that's not acceptable for racists, they must have reason for hate, without hate for other people, they don't see the sense of their life. they make themselves (in their eyes) better and higher when they are racists. it is similar like snobs, just this is not about money than about race. it is sickness in any case.

You're not undocumented you're an illegal alien! Keep your PC language to yourself. If you weren't here illegally we wouldn't be burdened with having to pay for your emergency an non-emergency care. Go home where you belong!!!

It is the regular American that is being impacted by having to cover the healthcare costs to illegals. It comes in the form of higher premiums and higher taxes for us. Not that you selfish bastards give a damn about us!
