Liberals seek health-care access for illegals

Is this really Aztlan? Should we encourage more to come?
Liberals seek health-care access for illegals
Fearful that they're losing ground on immigration and health care, a group of House Democrats is pushing back and arguing that any health care bill should extend to all legal immigrants and allow illegal immigrants some access. [...]
Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican, said proposals that include government coverage for illegal immigrants leave him incredulous.
"If anybody can, with a straight face, advocate that we should provide health insurance for people who broke into our country, broke our law and for the most part are criminals, I don't know where they ever would draw the line," he said.
Mr. King, who opposes Democrats' health care plans in general, said illegal immigrant access in legislation "would be a poison pill that would cause health care to go down" to defeat.
Twenty-nine Democrats signed on to the letter on legal immigrants, while 21 signed the letter on covering illegal immigrants. Although the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus signed the legal-immigrant letter in their capacity as CBC officials, they signed the other letter as individual members of Congress.

Illegal health care

How about castration for the males & sterilization for the women? They can have that for free. I'd even agree to have my taxes go up to help pay for it.

Bingo, mike

That'd be me. I posted a pic of a hole dug in the side of a dry creek bed at my range that wetbacks use to evade helicopters. I did fire from my back yard toward Mexico, but I was informed by a hot little female cop that lives near me that discharging a firearm within one mile of an occupied structure is illegal in AZ. So I had to stop. Oh well, gave me 45 minutes to talk to her. SO HOT!!!!
