Didn’t Obama Say Obamacare Would not Cover Illegals? Liberals Seek Healthcare for Illegals



Who lied? I thought the reforms they were proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally?

It would appear that South Carolina Republican Representative was not too far off the mark after all. As Democrats see the poll numbers slipping with Obamacare and liberals find them self losing political ground on immigration as well, The Washington Times is reporting that House Democrats is pushing back and arguing that any health care bill should extend some access to illegal immigrants.

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.

Remember what Obama said? Following this comment, Joe Wilson shouted, “You lie!” But did he? From what liberals look to be pushing for illegals to have access to tax payer sponsored and paid for healthcare, it looks like Wilson was spot on.

“There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants.  This, too, is false.  The reforms — the reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally”. 

Didn’t the liberals get Obama’s memo or listen during his speech during the joint session of Congress? Because they are proposing something quite different. Who owes who an apology?

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.

      every thing that comes from the libcrats is a lie. only the weakminded would believe in this money/power grab scam.

      I laugh each time I see a hand held poster, at a Tea Party, which is sooo recognizable and associative, saying only — “you lie”. Now some can continue with “you still lie”, and not to cliche terribly — “idiots were changed by lies”. Come election time 2010 school children could have a sixth grade reader series, of posters, varriations by chapter of Obama lies.

      Good thing Obama is not a farmer. If he said he was going to feed the chickens. The chickens simply die.

      “Buy their own”? Illegal Aliens are generally
      considered to be accepting ‘slave labor’ rates.
      What kind of health care plans would these
      unregistered, undocumented folks be in a
      position to ‘legally’ purchase? Hmmm. Actually
      most of them are between the ages of, what,
      18 and 29 years? That group does not want
      to spend anything on healthcare insurance now
      (even among the Real Citizenry).

    4. Jayne on September 29th, 2009 12:36 pm

      Joe Wilson was right. Obama YOU LIE!!

    5. Jack Hammer on September 29th, 2009 2:07 pm

      What’s up everybody. Jack is back. It has been a few days. So let me know what is going on. Are we still hating Obama because we are clueless idiots that believe everything we read, and because he has a darker skin color? Just let me know. Thanks.

    6. super dave on September 29th, 2009 2:20 pm

      are the illegals going to be thrown in jail when they can’t pay for this socialized medical care?
      the democrats have a lot of balls to try to strongarm the citizens of this country. when they start to push back don’t be alarmed. i don’t think obama is ready for what could possibly happen in the next three years.
      we’ll see how long it takes the democrats to resort to violence.

    7. Bernie on September 29th, 2009 3:51 pm

      it was so funny when that klansman yelled “you lie”

      I say 40% tax and healthcare for all!(including illegals)

    8. brie. on September 29th, 2009 5:53 pm

      tax and spend…that is Obama…what is between the ears…the big ears…let me see how many much more destruction can I do…to a country that I cannot salute the flag too….he is the worst thing I have ever seen in history….

    9. brie. on September 29th, 2009 6:17 pm

      Illegal relatives…how many more????? You suck!!!!

    10. katablog.com on September 29th, 2009 6:38 pm

      Here’s what is going on folks. The Democrats need more bodies to pay for health care. Even though they know that government controlled health care can’t be paid for – if they could count the illegals they think they could make their case more believable.

      You see there are more Jack Hammers running around that believe what they are told by the lying government. So add 20,000 to the health care premium payers (even though you and I know that what will really happen is that 20,000 more will be added to those needing subsidies) and that reduces the bill we all are going to pay. Ha ha! Not only do they lie, their lies are such whoopers only a Jack Hammer would believe them.

    11. Miklo on September 29th, 2009 6:50 pm


      So, “YOU LIE!” was actually a truthful statement?

    12. Carpe on September 29th, 2009 6:57 pm

      Oh, there will be violence. Granny Pelosi and
      another Kennedy weed have already put you on
      notice of that.

      That is what happens when you shove things down
      an American’s throat that they simply do not want.

      People can only be pushed so far, and then they snap.

    13. Buster on September 29th, 2009 9:36 pm

      Of course he will give illegals health care dont forget his aunte is illegal and living in Boston.

    14. brie. on September 29th, 2009 9:51 pm

      Snap, crackle and pop…..A President of the United States….how sorry…we have embarrassed the entire world by his presence ….no one wants to shake his hand. Abraham Lincoln would of knocked his block off!!!

    15. Dolf on September 30th, 2009 3:41 am

      illegals are not covered.

      They are not there in the first place

      otherwise they would be legal.

    16. super dave on September 30th, 2009 7:02 am

      NO JACK: we despise you for being a complete ignorant dumbass. read the front page today boy. the reason obama BOMBED ON HEALTHCARE.
      even you own boy max bauccus says the president is not helping the cause. crawl back in your mama’s bed and suckle son, you have to go to kindergarten today.

    17. super dave on September 30th, 2009 7:22 am

      it’s amazing that some so called Americans would vote for a president that would murder unborn children. this should tell you exactly what a democrat is.

    18. Brenda in Virginia on September 30th, 2009 7:36 am

      Well, they will no longer be illegal when Obama pushes for amnesty (and their right to vote soon as they become a citizen).

    19. Dolf on September 30th, 2009 8:09 am

      Brenda…Bush tried to do that too.
      got flamed by rightwing nutters
      and by the democrats (because it was Bush his idea…sad)
      and its not going to stop and a fence is not going to work (do you really want such a thing to begin with).

      Only real solution is: GET POORER THEN THE IMMIGRANTS.

      and Dave…if a girl wants an abortion why the f*ck do you care?

    21. super dave on September 30th, 2009 10:04 am

      dolf: lay off the dust man, that stuff is for horses and cattle.

    22. old1 on September 30th, 2009 10:58 am

      When will America start worrying about the top 10% of the population that are smart enough to make life better for all by designing better mouse traps and forget about the lowest 10% that need their uneducated heads stuck in those traps? Were living in trickle up stupidity. How did we get into this mess last November? Oh yea I remember, 98% of the blacks voted for him in record numbers & ACORN signed up all the 36,000,000 illegal aliens gave them voter registration cards and told them if they want amnesty and FREE everything, “vote democrat”.
      This has to be stopped! How did we fall so low?

    23. Bernie on September 30th, 2009 11:04 am

      Dave–you probably don’t even pay taxes…I say if you want a boob job or an abortion–then socialized medicine shall provide…Its called population control and being vain.

    24. Scott on September 30th, 2009 11:23 am

      See people, disgusting PIGS such as Jack and Dolf have ZERO clue of what they speak of…dolf is un-American therefore his comments carry nothing and mean nothing because they like to slaughter LIVING beings over there in the Netherlands as well as the elderly. He also reguritates CNN and MSNBC.

      And his IQ is that of a child if he does not understand nor think that illegals will be covered in Obamacare.

      well…jack…see his mother dropped him on his head when he was a child and now has to wear a helmet everyday of his life and he wants all of us to pay for it because his mom was a drunk who dumped him on his head or maybe the shock of his ugliness?

    25. katablog.com on September 30th, 2009 11:54 am

      dont forget his aunte is illegal and living in Boston

      you forgot: in public housing paid for by taxpayers.

      Dolf: what part of illegal don’t you understand? And Dolf while it’s “not there” – forbidding it isn’t there; democrats have refused all amendments attempting to forbid illegals from the bill.

      AND here’s what caused the story:

      Democrats are not TRYING to put it in there and Obama has come out and said that we should offer health care control to illegals.

    26. Brenda in Virginia on September 30th, 2009 11:58 am

      Dolf, with Obama in office, we probably will all be poorer than the immigrants before long.

    27. Scott on September 30th, 2009 12:48 pm

      Bernie – goes to show your ignorance if you call for population control….

      I highly doubt your sorry arse pay taxes either, instead you collect your head start check at the expense of TRUE, REAL Americans; and then beg for more.

      Yeah, socialized medicine really works? Where? It’s a failure in EVERY country and state that has tried it. Only stupid idiotic liberals (speaking to you Bernie) do not understand this…they hang on Obama’s every word like it’s FACT, when in fact, the FACTS spit in his eye!

      Get lost loser!

    28. super dave on September 30th, 2009 1:37 pm

      hey bernie: i work two jobs chicken dick. to pay the way for losers like you to suck up to a foriegner.
      better get your lazy ass in line boy to benefit from my hard work. there are a lot of losers ahead of you waiting for their handout.

    29. super dave on September 30th, 2009 1:40 pm

      hey bernie: i heard obama loved your boob job so much that he talked you in to getting your lips botoxed. and we all know what that means! youz a hard sucka boy.

    30. Bernie on September 30th, 2009 2:07 pm


      you ignorant redneck.Socialized medicine works fine.You are just brainwashed by foxnews and rush.I am willing to pay more taxes for healthcare for all.(abortions included!)Now why dont you go listen to Glen Beck so you can follow his talking points.Only ignorant-rube-nascar watching white trash conservatives that dont know S**T believe anything this moron Red spoon feeds to you.(speaking to you Scott)
      SM: Hey Bernie, you are an illiterate Liberal. Add a fool as well. So I am a moron, eh? Why, because I am not a horses ass like you who looks to destroy the American way of life and capitalism?

      You are so pathetic and sad and so typical of LEFTist hate. No one listens to talking points. As a matter of fact it was “WE THE PEOPLE”, it was the Rea Party movement that made Republicans come back to the reservation and away from the notions that Obama’s way was the only way. The People have directed this charge, not politicians.

      Only an A$$hole would tear down a house because the light on the back porch is broke.

      Newsflash, I have been in healthcare for more than 25 years and have seen this pathetic song & dance that Obama is claiming. It is no different than the failed USHC HMO model that was originally introduced in the early 90′s. It failed miserably.

      Sorry ass, if you do not like common sense approaches to solving problems. Then again, when one is a troll would could or would they ever solve.

      Who cares what you wish to do, its all talk. You are a leach and part of the problem.

      Thankfully, in one year the governor races will start the beginning of the end for Obama, the Dems and you. The midterms will be crushing and in 2012 there will be a landslide against Obama.

      People are already fed up with this crap and its not just Conservatives or republicans. Look at how Independents are running from Obama.

      You on the LEFT are about to lose your collective minds.

      You have the Presidency, 60 seats in the Senate and control of the House and still the LEFT cannot pass anything because “WE THE PEOPLE” want nothing to do with your socialist policies. The LEFT will never again have this type of majority because the American people will never let them self be fooled by liberal lies.

      OBAMA is toast.


    31. Maggie on September 30th, 2009 2:14 pm

      I personally dont think any of them in govt. know what they are talking about with health care.. When they agree to use the same health care plan as they dump on others..let me know.. Cut insurance costs so people who aren’t covered at work can afford insurance. Let’s say Joe Schmo the ceo.. takes a smaller salary instead of charging outrageous fees to afford 6 mansions etc.. cut the price of prescriptions for the same reason, and stop charging such outrageous medical fees. I don’t see how opening up 40 more red tape bureaus in govt.. will solve anything.

    32. super dave on September 30th, 2009 3:35 pm

      democrats are such racist name calling fatherless bastards. no wonder they are making bomb threats. this is evidence that the klan rules the democratic party. i bet the democrats are all wearing their hoods and sheets on halloween.

    33. Scott on September 30th, 2009 6:31 pm

      Bernie…lol loser….i dont’ watch nascar you racist pr*ck! why don’t you go drive your escalade all the while collecting your welfare check at the expense of hard working TRUE Americans not some illegal momma’s boy like you that has to have the government show you how to run your life….

      You can NOT point to one fact that socialized medicine works fine. PROVE IT loser! You can’t! Medicare, SS are failures, government run programs. People in droves come here for operations, MRI, etc…from Canada, from all reaches of the earth!

      You leftist tree hugging liberal leeches of society are in a tizzy because AMERICA by a whopping 14 point margin DO NOT WANT HEALTHCARE. I guess ALL 56% of those against watch Beck or FoxNews. You waste of human space!

      Geez, I wonder why Fox, the likes of Beck and O’Reilly continue to pound the loser Olbermann, Maddow or whoever else they want to throw out there. Why is there viewership increasing while the others are decreasing? BECAUSE AMERICANS CAN SEE THROUGH THE LEFTIST BIAS in the MSM and MSNBC and the such and want a fair and balanced opinion.

      Grow a pair you punk and stop sucking off the tit of the government like you always do….

      The only ignorant one is you who ‘believes’ socialized medicine has worked when it has NOT…EVER!

      Red is posting FACTUAL information and FACTUAL threads and the thing is with crybaby tree hugging needing your mommy liberals is that YOU KNOW it’s FACT and you are powerless to do anything about it. Your hope and change is nothing but chump change you little beeyatch.

      I bet you do support abortions, considering the profession your mom is in. I bet your mom supports abortion after the she saw the abortion born that is you!

    34. NewGirlBoston on September 30th, 2009 8:49 pm

      #30- Bernie—You cannot be serious with that post….are you f’n kidding me?

      All I have to say is that we are not entranced by Red—we are all independent thinkers. If we happen to agree with an article posted- we pontificate upon it- if we don’t- we disagree also.

      I think you are the one who is convinced that every blogger on here Conservative Republican/Far Right and you are REALLY WRONG!

      F OFF, you douche! We don’t need assholes like you to come in here calling us racists or making references to the KKK! It’s a complete bunch of bullshit and you know it. We are entitled to our own opinions as AMERICANS. (Something Dolf knows nothing about). This is a public blog and if we want to rant about the horrible job we think Obama is doing- we are fully entitled to do so! I might point out that there are many Democrats and Independents that post in here also, so piss off you unworthy troll!

    35. Dolf on October 1st, 2009 4:03 am


      so if the girl pays for it herself it is ok?
      (and no, I do not believe in killing, I would not want an abortion).

      and scott, keep on going…

    36. Scared Monkeys on October 1st, 2009 9:07 pm

      #30 Poor Bernie, born without any common sense or manners.

      Guess what Bernie, in 2010 it begins. In 2012 Obama goes bye, bye.

      You poor bastards are about to lose your collective minds. I realize its a tough pill to swallow that this nation is center right.

      Get ready for the landslide, because its a coming.

      [...] for Republicans when they call out “you lie” to the President when, basically the President was lying. Once again, today Democrats voted down a Republican Amendment that would make it mandatory for [...]

    38. Ron Millsman on April 26th, 2010 8:18 pm

      There is a federal law on the books that says “it is illegal to sneak into the from another country without permission”
      Now Obama says it’s ok if they come into our country. We will give them funds for food, shelter, medical care, and let their children go to our schools. Is this president loosing it or what?? Illegal is Illegal !!!
