- President Obama said this week that his health care plan won't cover illegal immigrants, but argued
He also staked out a position that anyone in the country legally should be covered - a major break with the 1996 welfare reform bill, which limited most federal public assistance programs only to citizens and longtime immigrants.
"Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don't simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken," Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. "That's why I strongly support making sure
folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else. "...
HOW ABOUT JUST LIKE YOUR HEALTH PLAN? PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH.
Wash. Times: "Mr. Obama added, "If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all."" via Gateway Pundit
***I understand he doesn't say give coverage to illegals today. What he says is illegals must be made legal ("resolving the issue"). Legals get free doctors per Obama. If one is a speechwriter one can laugh, boy oh boy we really got those right wingers going nuts now. Yes, if you're a speechwriter prone to such self congratulations, you'll be a great has-been far left speech writer like David Frum, who thinks his 13 month career writing speeches for Bush gives him any kind of cred. With the failure Bush became, temp speechwriters like Frum should leave the public stage in shame.
