Obama: Legalize illegals to get them health care
President Obama said this week that his health care plan won't cover illegal immigrants, but argued that's all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage
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
It's brilliant. To keep from insuring illegals, we will give them citizenship. See, Obama didn't lie in his speech to Congress when he said he would not insure illegals. In his country there will be no illegal aliens.
This passage explains it all for you:
On Wednesday, hours before Mr. Obama's speech, the NCLR (National Council of La Raza) had given the administration a public scolding, demanding that Mr. Obama needed to make "a public commitment ... to ensure that those who are here legally are covered."
