    Obama, we voted you and a large Democratic majority into Congress so that you could ignore idiots like Palin and Beck, do that. Ignore them. Forget about pleasing Republicans, we voted you into the White House so that you wouldn't give a rat's ass about them.

    Re: White House on Health Care and Illegals

    Republican's didn't win on the merits of H.R. 3200 as it applies to illegals receiving health care. They merely won on getting the wording changed because it didn't spell it out in plain language that illegals would not receive health care under H.R. 3200 using federal dollars. I refer you back to my post below:

However, I also point out that in post #29 that in a rather round-about way, the bill does ensure that as a norm "non-resident aliens" would not receive care or federal funding for same under the bill.

    Therefore, Rep. Wilson is correct, but only insofar as the circumstances would direct some illegal/non-resident aliens to receive medical treatment under current federal law. Still, I understand what Rep. Wilson and others want on this sensative matter...for the wording in H.R. 3200 to just come right out and say it, "no illegal aliens will be authorized to receive health care under this bill except as expressly outlined in subparagraphs K, T, U and V of the Immigration and Nationalization Act." That would close this matter entirely.
    As to the point of this thread, Rep. Wilson wins but only insofar as his outburst forced the Dems to put in plain language that illegals would not receive health care except as circumstances dictate under current federal law.

    Your "4th grade" rotuine is simply a way to be lazy.

    I don't see any problem with undocumented residents obtaining care.

    Regardless of what anyone thinks, these people are here to stay. No, they're not getting deported, kicked out, or worse.

    It makes financial sense to cover them.

    If one doesn't, the cost to cover them in emergency room visits, in the long run, will outweigh the short time percevied savings.

    absolutely, friend

    not much of a legal triumph for bigmouthed mr wilson

    but a POLITICAL win very large

    he forced the white house to issue a CLARIFICATION that in itself is bizarrely confused and unconvincing

    once again, the president LOOKS bad, like he doesn't know what he's doing

    he appears inconsistent, incoherent and improvisational

    wilson comes off as...

    well, most americans couldn't care less about joe wilson

    i appreciate the thoughtfulness and maturity of your response, sir

    Democrats have always been wusses. Thats nothing new.

    Either way, not providing those residents with health care is an absolutely stupid and financially irreponsible decision.

    No foresight whatsoever, and is an example of ideology trumping practicalities.
