Thursday's US Supreme Court ruling to uphold the 2010 Affordable Healthcare Act has raised questions about how this affects people who are in this country illegally.

"Healthcare Reform Act does not benefit Illegal Immigrants"

Why should it? They are not US citizens, they have their own country, their own government.

No health care for illegal aliens. You want health care, go home.

It doesn't matter, because they never paid for their care in the past, and won't any time soon. It doesn't matter to them. Maybe now, the hospitals won't be giving the extended care that we have read about so many times. Maybe now the hospitals will just to ship them off to a hospital in their countries of origin as soon as they are stabilized enough to be moved.

Refresh your memories folks...they put hospitals in the red. In the maternity wards, their American-born kids' medicaid pays for the services...meaning the taxpayers eat the costs, not illegals.

As well as govt funded medical facilities are packed full of illegals, while Americans are told they're not taking new patients. It happened to a friend of mine, while he was on unemployment with a broken ankle. He went to 2 different emergency clinics and was told they needed $500.00 up front, which he didn't have!

health care act doesn't benefit illegals? unless they are legally removed FROM ALL HELP THEY NOW RECEIVE the US citizens citizens can assume that THEY WILL CONTINUE TO RECEIVE WHAT THEY'RE GETTING NOW, while we citizens continue to wonder how WE WILL PAY FOR OUR INSURANCE....while by the same token there are many who don't have a job, what about these citizens?

Please vote in November to rid this country of Obama. He must not be re-elected, then we will get rid of illegals. America has an excellent immigration policy, APPLY!! Illegals just want everything free. They refuse to apply like the many thousands do legally. I want people that respect and obey our laws in this country. America is great and we need all ethnic groups, but all must apply legally. Believe in America-vote Romney. By the way, I'm a college educated, black, senior citizen that wants to preserve America's greatness. And all four of my African grandparents were born on slave plantations. There goes being prejudice, as stated by Obama. America is number ONE!!!

I would like to know what the big deal is on the Obama health care? I obviously am not informed well enough because the only thing I see is that everyone will have health insurance. Employers with more than 50 employees will be required to provide health care for workers. Insurance companies will no longer disqualify individuals based off pre-existing conditions? Thats all I know so far so can someone please explain what the cons of this new health plan are? Thanks in advance.

I think this is bs and something should be done to protect those who are citizens rather than turning them away to ensure care is provided for others who are here illegally. In Mexico it's quite simple you either pay or die so they should be accustomed to this practice and embrace it! Sorry for your friend and I understand your pain as I have been in a similar situation.

Although Obama is not my preference I WILL NOT VOTE for a Morman! I know many Mormons and for the most part they are all full of sh** and are a**holes! So if it comes down to voting for a Mormon or Obama than Obama will have my vote.

that is exactly what I've been thinking, they will continue to benefit WHILE WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT OURSELVES OR ELSE....there are many unemployed... wonder what happens there, with no pay check coming in how will they pay? which then our taxes SHOULD PAY FOR OUR UNEMPLOYED CITIZENS' INSURANCE OR MEDICAL ATTENTION AND DEFINITELY EXCLUDE THE parasite illegals.

So, if an illegal shows up at the emergency room with no insurance, does he/she have to pay the fine, tax, fine ,tax? I really wish they'd make up they're feeble minds as to what it is.

well, you go ahead and keep obama up there in the WH, he isn't fit to run things and seem to be leading the nation into a socialist country. Heaven help us if he serves 4-more! Can't you see how Divided the nation is? don't you feel the unrest in the air? citizens are very perplexed as to why Obama has gotten away with SO MUCH including the F & F SCANDEL where Holder now can't be prosecuted, why? what is he hiding? why is he protecting his lying DOJ head?? but if you think all this is NOTHING to worry about, I just hope to God that all citizens really keep themselves informed so they can vote intelligently having armed themselves well with information on their best pick for president.

I moved to Utah from the east,I am not Mormon.They have a much better approach at our Mormon run hospitals .When I was injured they simply ask if you have insurance.If you say no, they treat you anyhow.They do not request money upfront rather you are legal or illegal. They do however set up a payment plan or collect from insurance whenever possible.

I went into the hospital due to an allergic reaction to an antibiotic. I was there 5 days. Before they're release me, I had to go to the billing office. I was told I could use a c card for the $5,018.00 charges. I told them to take a hike, I'd make payments. Since they'd 'already checked my credit history' they agreed. I was pizzed then and every time I think about it I get pizzed. They check a U.S. citizen's credit, but they don't have the availabilty to check an illegals! I'm self employed and resent it when the govt states "we have millions of people without heath insurance, so everyone else has to pay for their medical care." Hog wash, I'm pizzed my federal tax dollars are paying for illegals, while I pay for mine out of pocket. The only thing we need is the opportunity to cross state lines for our best policy and rates!

The "Healthcare Reform Act" does not benefit 99% of Americans either. The only people it is going to benefit is those who run the insurance and healthcare companies that wrote it. Of course the politicians who voted for it will also benefit from the money they received for supporting it and from the votes of those who will now get even more entitlements paid for by those of us who work for a living.

the only glaring point to be made is that if this law is such a great victory for the people, then why are federal politicians and employees exempt from it ? share the pain ? doesn't look like it. seems like the 'people' are looked down on by the 'rulers' and their protected employees as they force the sheep to pay.
