Pay taxes, then yes. But for now, not a chance. Pay to go to private school. Everyone pays one way or another

In these hard economic times we need to feed, clothe and educate America first..there is not enough to go around! We need to deport them until America is back to its old self.

Not very fair to the people that jump through hoops to get here legally. Maybe for kids already here, the parents need to start paying taxes, kids have to get straight A's or they all get deported. Then they can pay a fee to take a citizenship test. The parents have to sign a document promising not to park on the lawn too.

okay, get rid of all the hoops and simply knock down all national boundaries. let people go where they wish and live where they want to.

Sorry, but when hard working Americans cant afford health insurance, and low life non working people, whether legal or illegal are getting things such as dental care for free...the system is broken.....take care of the HARD WORKING Americans first, then if anything is left over give it away.

i guess that you completely missed what i said, didn't you. i said that ALL people on u.s. soil should have government paid health benefits... 100%

if they were to stop feeding the wealthy, and stoking the war machine there'd be plenty of money for education and medicine.

I am a hard working American as you are, but why should we give our money away to non Americans, or to Americans who havent worked in years for one stupid reason or another. I applaud people such as yourself....I am talking about the lazy non workers and the illegals. People such as myself, who work very hard cant even afford insurance, but lazy people, who dont work get free medical insurance. Explain that one please!

that's why i keep saying that it should be there for everyone without even asking... just go to the doctor or the hospital and get treated and then walk out without paying knowing that someone is taking care of you.

And what do you do to help the world, Garbage Mouth? These conversations are what the forums are for...you are such a jerk.

And to my intelligent friend, Weebles, social medicine as you would like, sometimes doesnt work for everyone, as in Canada. People there may have to wait months before getting certain medical diagnostic testing, or medications because of government regulations. I have seen many people become sicker while they wait. Sadly, I am not sure there really are any solutions out there. But if everything in America were free, we would have more problems than we have now.....more illegals. We can hardly handle the ones we have. It really sucks that corporations are getting richer and taking more worker benefits away....I have seen my benefits worsen every year, but the place where I work makes more profits! AND...people cant donate like they used to because money is so much tighter.....it really is a just a terrible cycle. This is just my opinion, which again is what the forum is for.

the problem, i believe is that there's too much bureaucracy involved.

as for 'illegals'... if they dropped all international borders, then there wouldn't and couldn't be any 'illegal aliens'. everyone could come and go as they pleased. not only that, but business would have no reason to move out of one nation and into another because labor and benefits would balance themselves out.

You are one of the bleeding heart liberal socilist that believes in the NWO that is runing our country. Guess what,socilism has and never will work.You want every border taken down?,you have to be living on another planet. The way you think everyone is owed a free ride from birth to the grave.Are you one of the slackers that thinks you are owed everything?,sure sounds that way.I'll bet that you have been out of school for a very little time and you were brainwashed by you teachers with their socilist play book. Wake up little one and see what the real world is all about.
