    Actually, I'm all for this. The more time they spend beating this irrelevant dead horse, the less time they have to do something destructive.

    Hell, let's have them censure all 435 of 'em!

    Maybe, but it's not about the politics to me.

    A complete waste of time and taxpayer money but at least they are not actually doing anything dangerous to us if they focus on this nonissue.
    Thank you

    "Bills bar illegal immigrants from receiving subsidies
    The House bill states that those "not lawfully present" may not receive subsidies to purchase insurance. Media Matters for America has debunked the myth that the health care reform bills under consideration would cover undocumented immigrants. From the "Individual Affordability Credits" section of the America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009:

    SEC. 242. AFFORDABLE CREDIT ELIGIBLE INDIVIDUAL.

    (a) DEFINITION. --

    (1) IN GENERAL. -- For purposes of this division, the term ''affordable credit eligible individual'' means, subject to subsection (b), an individual who is lawfully present in a State in the United States (other than as a nonimmigrant described in a subparagraph (excluding subparagraphs (K), (T), (U), and (V)) of section 101(a)(15) of the Immigration and Nationality Act) --"

    "Part of the bill would create a health insurance exchange, where consumers could choose among insurance plans or a government-run plan. That section of the bill does not set restrictions on participants' immigration status"


    Health care bill has curious coverage for illegal immigrants-CNN


    "It boils down to terminology. Those living in the country illegally are classified as such under immigration law, but the bill uses tax law terms that identify foreigners as either resident or nonresident aliens.

    Nonresident aliens would be exempt from the required coverage, but undocumented immigrants who live in the United States for a certain amount of time during the year would be classified as residents. "Thus, it would appear that unauthorized aliens who meet the substantial presence test would be required under HR 3200 to have health insurance," the report says.

    It was less clear, however, how the mandate would be enforced for people, immigrants or not, who do not file federal income taxes."




    Maybe that will help.

    It does however, keep the focus off this pig of a Health Care ill trying to get through the House, now doesn't it?
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Why don't we discuss the ranking Democrat Senator who is a former Exalted Cyclops of the KKK, Robert Byrd (D) ? ?

    I mean, if you want to bring up the Klan, the Dems have a "former" klansman sitting on the 4 most important committees in congress, and sitting 3rd in line for the Presidency.

    Still wanna talk ?

    What kind of cowardly cheerleader would actually give this post a "Thanks" ? ? ?

    Anyhow . . .

    You make some claims here Sabr, but provide little to back them.

    I on the other hand, have pointed out to you numerous times how Wilson was completely correct in his outburst, whether it was rude or not.

    The enforcement provisions had been voted off the bill, and thus the bill, as it stood when the president was giving his speech, would certainly have extended benefits and care to illegal aliens. I explained this several times, and then all you could come back with was a venom filled ad hominem attack on me, containing zero content and 100% smear.

    Wilson called Obama a liar, because Obama was lying. I showed how, repeatedly, and provided both support commentary and links to the relevant news stories.

    Thanks for playing Sabr. Why don't you ad hominem me some more to round out the thread and let the readers really know what you are like when humiliatingly refuted.
