Republicans tried to amend the Democrats health care reform plan to prevent illegal aliens from receiving government-subsidized health care. The amendment failed on a party line vote. Democrats want to raise taxes, force healthy Americans to take insurance even if they don't want it and create long waits for medical treatment in order to give illegal immigrants subsidized health care coverage. If your representative thinks this is a good plan, you need to fire him or her.
On Friday, Democrats moved one step closer to giving free health insurance to the nation’s estimated 12 million illegal aliens when they successfully defeated a Republican-backed amendment, offered by Rep. Dean Heller, R-Nev., that would have prevented illegal aliens from receiving government-subsidized health care under the proposed plan backed by House Democrats and President Barack Obama.
The House Ways and Means Committee nixed the Heller amendment by a 26-to-15 vote along straight party lines, and followed this action by passing the 1,018-page bill early Friday morning by a 23-to-18 margin, with three Democrats voting against the plan.
The Democratic plan will embrace Obama’s vision of bringing free government medical care to more than 45 million uninsured people in America – a significant portion of whom are illegal aliens.
