Unbelievable, Ever Wonder Why Health Care Costs are Out of Control in US … Illegal Immigrant Gets Kidney
Unbelievable … this crap just does not end. What part about “ILLEGAL” does no one understand?
As those who are in the United States wait for their kidney transplants, Jorge Mariscal, an illegal immigrant is provided one ahead of legal tax paying US citizens. It appears that we now exist in a world with out borders and laws. Mariscal believes health care should be a human right, not a privilege. Thats interesting, I believe breaking the law should be a crime, not rewarded. However, just because the illegal has received a kidney, he is not out of the woods yet. Loyola agreed to cover the costs of the transplant, Mariscal will have to pay for the medicine. Please, I am sure Obamacare covers illegals as it takes health care services away from those who are actually in the country legally. Just a note to Jorge, rather then thinking you have a right and are entitled to a kidney, you should be pretty damn grateful instead.
As an illegal immigrant, Jorge Mariscal waited eight years for a kidney transplant he feared would never come.
His persistence paid off Thursday when he underwent the procedure at Loyola University Medical Center.
After years of uncertainties, Mariscal said he’s excited about his future and grateful for the help he received. But he remains frustrated with a health care system that he worries might leave out an untold number of illegal immigrants in need of lifesaving treatments.
“Why can’t we be treated the same?” he asked while sitting in his hospital room. “Health care should be a human right, not a privilege. At least give us the chance to fight for our lives with dignity.”
So this guy wants to be treated the same, huh? You know how you so that Jorge? Go back yo where ever you came from and apply for citizenship. If you wanted to be treated the same, you must be the same as the rest of us. Your problem is you wanted preferential and special treatment. This is just unreal. They know this guy is an illegal and he just gets to stay and be a burden on the tax payers. WTF!
Now that his surgery is behind him, he said he’s happy he stayed stateside.
“It feels great to have a second opportunity at life,” Mariscal said. “It’s an overwhelming feeling. I don’t think I would have been happy in Mexico.”
