Liberals Pushing ObamaCare for Illegals

I think we all saw this coming. Will John McCain insist that Braack Obama apologize to Joe Wilson?

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.

The Democrats, trying to stiffen their party’s spines on the contentious issue, say it’s unfair to bar illegal immigrants from paying their own way in a government-sponsored exchange. Legal immigrants, they say, regardless of how long they’ve been in the United States, should be able to get government-subsidized health care if they meet the other eligibility requirements.

“Legal permanent residents should be able to purchase their plans, and they should also be eligible for subsidies if they need it. Undocumented, if they can afford it, should be able to buy their own private plans. It keeps them out of the emergency room,” said Rep. Michael M. Honda, California Democrat and chairman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus.

    it’s the same approach the Democrats take to “fighting crime”…make fewer TRUE crimes illegal! Crime rate goes down! (they don’t mind “transforming” Conservative speech into a “Hate Crime”, however)

    in this case the way to make sure no “illegal” alien gets the benefits is simply to make them all LEGAL! problem solved!

    JR –

    That way they can qualify for ObamaCare and all the other perks of citizenship. Heck, with the government’s surplus, why not?

    Barack Obama is Joe Isuzu’s twin brother.

    Joe Isuzu
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Joe Isuzu was a fictional spokesman used in a series of television advertisements for Isuzu. Created by the Madison Avenue ad agency Della Femina, Travisano, and Partners, the segments aired on American television in 1986-90, reaching their zenith in 1987 after the character was featured during Super Bowl XXI. Played by actor David Leisure, Joe Isuzu was a pathological liar who made outrageous and overinflated claims about Isuzu’s cars. (One commercial even cast him as the Boy who Cried Wolf.) The campaign was resurrected briefly in 1999 and continued until 2001 to promote several cars such as the Isuzu Axiom. Famous quotes:

    * “You have my word on it.”
    * “If I’m lying, may lightning hit my mother.” (“Good luck, Mom!” appears on screen.)
    * “It has more seats than the Astrodome!”
    * “Hi, I’m Joe Isuzu and I used my new Isuzu pickup truck to carry a 2,000 pound cheeseburger.”
    * “The Isuzu Impulse: faster than a speeding—[catches a bullet in his teeth]—well, you know.”

    The character became a fixture in American popular culture.
