I keep bringing one major point up which nobody seems to care or pay much attention to...Your post is valid, but what is angering me even more than
what you posted.
The American citizens are picking up the bill for MILLIONS of ILLEGALS. People who do not even belong in this country are getting FREE health care,
and are NOT penalized for no insurance. In states that have the most amount of illegal immigrants, like California, Texas, Arizona, etc how many
billions of dollars are spent on treating these Illegal people? Why is it okay for them to just walk into a hospital and get treatment for their
common cold free? Sure they get bill, but they are not forced to pay.
How much money is spent on these people illegally in our country in medical I have no idea, but I do know that if you go to any county hospital in LA,
the ER's are OVERRUN with people breaking the law by not having properly entering this country. The problem has been so bad in Cali that some county
hospitals have almost been shut down.
Another problem with these people getting treated, it is making people who are American citizens wait for the treatment they should be entitled to as
an American citizen. Instead they are made to wait behind people who do not have any business even being here in this country. Many of them do not
even pay into the system here, yet they benefit almost as much as a legal citizen.
I would love to know exactly how much money Americans pay into the system and what percentage end up going to illegals, in health care. Them getting
free health care drives cost up, which in turn drives premiums up, plain and simple.
Look the system is already broken, BUT ignoring a problem that has plagued this nation for many years, is not going to solve anything.
Some of you may think I am harsh, but I am not. I am all for legal immigrants. I am all about them going through classes that are supposed to be
taken and the pledge they are supposed to take when entering America, and I am certainly about them knowing BASIC ENGLISH.
