Confirmed: ObamaCare Provides Free Healthcare to Illegal Aliens

Remember when Rep Joe Wilson (R-SC) was castigated for accusing President Downgrade of lying about ObamaCare not providing free healthcare to illegal aliens? Unsurprisingly, it has been established that Wilson was correct:

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced on Tuesday that it has awarded $28.8 million to 67 community health centers with funds from the Obamacare health reform law.

Of that $28.8 million, “approximately $8.5 million will be used by 25 New Access Point awardees to target services to migrant and seasonal farm workers,” Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Spokeswoman Judy Andrews told CNSNews.com. HRSA is a part of HHS.

Andrews said that grant recipients will not check the immigration status of people seeking services.

According to the Pew Hispanic Center, illegal immigrants make up an estimated 25 percent of all migrant farm workers, with disproportionate amounts residing in California, Texas, Florida, and Georgia.

It’s nice to see that someone other than power-mad bureaucrats will benefit from ObamaCare — at least in the short term, before it destroys both our healthcare system and what’s left of our economy.

“You lie!” Truer words were never spoken.

    Wrong! It wasn’t “You lie!” It was “You lie, [Boy]!”

    I put “Boy” in brackets because Wilson might not have “said” it, but Maureen Dowd “heard” it nonetheless. It was her special racist super-power that allowed her to catch that unspoken slur.

    It can be hard for a growing cartel to get a good group plan at an affordable price. That’s why there’s ObamaCare™.

  • StanInTexas

    Joe Wilson is the epitome of something I said a long time ago…

    “It is sad day when a politician in America can get in more trouble for being right, than they do for being worng!”

  • Jay B.

    Of course Wilson was correct. The reason he was so attacked by the media is simply because he spoke the truth in that stupid lying games the liberals love to play. Lie in front of everyone, then smile knowingly, then you’ve done a good job.

  • Jimbo

    He lies? Except for when The Failure said he would decimate the American power industry, when else has the worthless communist bastard/gawd wannabe told the truth?

  • NMS

    Oh, come on how do you think they will be able to keep the illegal immigrants in this country. Haven’t you seen the unemployment figures from Mexico. Haven’t you read that they are fleeing back to Mexico, over the fence and all. I mean duh…offer them more of other peoples money that should do it. Stupid.

    I am presently being temporarily relocated from Texas to the admitted socialist state of Hawaii.
    There are three things that will have an immediate impact on my life:

    1. My health insurance (a PPO) will double in personal cost from $400 withholding to $800 withholding per month. This is [supposedly] so the bums on the beaches will have access to the same premium healthcare I have. (The bums don’t use doctors – so there is some Obamamamma liberal thief pocketing the extra.)

    2. My State Income Tax goes from 0% to 10%.

    3. Taking even one of my firearms is quite troublesome: the liberal red-tape and loss of personal liberties combined with government intrusion due to registration and usage of a firearm makes it too unattractive to even consider. Plus – If I shoot and rightfully kill some worthless bastard who breaks into my home; whether he is raping my wife or just being a liberal (thief): I go to prison.

    I will fight liberalism (anti-liberty bastards) to my dying breath. And for all you shit-stains out there (you bastards know who you are) – NO – I’m not being “melodramatic.” If you want my personal liberty – it WILL cost you your life. Fair is fair.

    Joe Wilson’s “You Lie!” may well be the understatement of the millenium.

  • KHarn

    Good luck and God bless you and yours, JIMBO.

  • KHarn

    PS: Wilson never should have alowed himself to apoligise. He could have gone public with the bill, exposing every crappy piece of scam and been vindicated.

  • KHarn

    “Wilson never should have alowed himself to BE FORCED TO apoligise.” is what I ment to write.

  • AC

    Jimbo, if you ever come to Florida, you’ll fit right in.

    We’ve got beautiful weather, no income tax, among the best gun laws in the nation, a low sales tax, a net influx of jobs from the Northeast, friendly people, and diverse culture. Stay out of Dade County and the southern half of Broward and you’ll be fine.

    Our governor is a successful businessman who understands how to create jobs and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. He recently told Comrade Chairman to get lost for over $2 billion in railway pork despite heavy pressure from the unions.

    He was in the health care industry and he knows why Obamacare is a disaster.

  • Wyatt’s Torch

    You hang in there, Jimbo. Hawaii is beautiful, but it’s possibly more leftist than CA where I am. That is bad.

    As for the health care given to Unregistered Democrats, let’s face it. They’re running out of ways to tip the election in favor of the Kenyan Punk.

    Did you see his speech today? It was hysterical…the same old class warfare garbage, and the response was, shall we say, luke warm.

    I’ve heard more enthusiasm for a third-rate bar band ten minutes before last call than I did for that re-hash of B.S. Obama was spewing.

    GOD I hope this is a trend!

    Let them go to the ER instead – then we can pay 20X 8.5 million when the unpaid balance gets incorporated into charges paid by insurance and medicare. The best solution is to send them back to mexico but while they are here let’s not be foolish.

    Ever wonder why they post those signs saying “Do not feed the bears”?

    Institutionalizing yet another freebie will cause more of them to come over.

  • Lee

    The absence of a local care center doesn’t reduce incentive for illegals, they will simply visit the ER instead. Illegals don’t care about the price tag since the citizen taxpayer foots the bill. You will certainly pay either way – so would you rather pay 50$ or 1000$? It offends my sensibilities too but that’s how it works.

  • Jimbo

    Thanks for the good wishes, folks. I will be keeping my home in Texas. This is a 3 to 7 year gig and I plan to make the very most of it. (Yes, I’m somewhat fortunate… I used to work in Prudhoe Bay.)

    I just felt it important to point out the basic differences in a socialist state and a free state. The differnces are HUGE. Prepare to fight for your individual liberties – buy bullets. I’ll be home if/when the crap get’s thick. When stuff goes down – a rock in the middle of the Specifc Sea is the last place one want’s to be.

    Typical of the all time worst president in americas history and a act of treason He dserves to be drummed clean out of america forever

    It most certainly does.

    ERs are an after the fact tool to mitigate the damage. Illegals can’t expect to use them, don’t know the quality of care, incur stress over the paperwork, and have to worry about being busted (statistically, their chances of staying are good, but the thought of going back does cross their minds).

    When local care clinics are set up specifically to cover illegals then the illegals here now, and those coming in the future, can both plan their migration around the government cheese. A clinic set up expressly to ignore immigration status will not cause aliens to hesitate in the same manner as an ER.

    Even though the ER provides a freebie to those who can work the system, the specialty clinic normalizes the freebie for everyone who fits in that class.

    The same principle applies to the divide between food banks and food stamps. One helps people when the most need it, but is less abusable and doesn’t become part of a plan, whereas the other is seen as an entitlement to plan a life around.

  • Wyatt’s Torch

    Why are we pussyfooting around this? The problem isn’t ER’s or clinics…it’s illegals.

    “You can’t deport 12 million people!”

    Says who? Them?

    This is the rewards of “bi-partisan” and “tolerance”. Those scumbags plays our system like a fiddle, and now that a zillion of ‘em are here, the tune changes to “We’re here now, you can do nothing”.

    We’ll see.

  • Proud Kuffar

    A majority of doctors find Obamacare as an unwarranted intrusion into the medical field. When you have the primary administers of care disagreeing with the legislation, you have a significant problem. The dean of Harvard Med School is on record saying that the Unaffordable Care Act is a disaster. Of course what do you expect from a law designed by a bunch of former trial lawyers.

  • Bill T

    Jimbo I think I’d take Prudhoe Bay over Hi right now http://www.wunderground.com/US/AK/Prudhoe_Bay.html

  • Jimbo

    Ah, yes, Bill T – a balmy summer day on the Arctic coast for sure. Right now the clouds of mosquitos are rising from the sodden tundra in a huge anvil shape – billions upon billions strong – seeking the closest warmblooded herd… sucking blood is what they’ll do; be it caribou or people!

    They’re just like liberals.

  • Bill T

    Where were you at up the BP or Arco?

  • Lee

    The solution is absolutely deportation.

    Let me point out that fallacies: the illegals aren’t concerned about paperwork, the quality of care at an ER, or being arrested at the hospital. The care is better than anything in Mexico, there are staff to help them with the paperwork, and nobody gets arrested for being illegal in the hospital. I live in an area with a significant illegal problem. They go to the hospital for the flu or a hangnail. Unless the hospital is going to turn them away then you and I are going to pay. We pay because the hospital has to stay in business and so they build this into their costs, and then medicare or your insurance has to pay, which translates into higher taxes or premiums for you and me.

    It’s the same reason why medicare is hosed – nobody uses resources carefully when they don’t have to pay for them. And illegals certainly don’t give a crap about how expensive the ER is.

  • AC

    I’m not disagreeing that they’re abusing our ERs.

    The point is that clinics are an attractant far beyond the ER.

    Perhaps working taxpayers should lock the infernal things shut and claim they’re abating a nuisance. Ranchers would be in the right if a crazy neighbor set up a wolf feeder.

  • Jodie

    This is just great./sarc

    With the unemployment rate being lower in Mexico, now the illegals who want to work will go back to Mexico and we’ll just be stuck with the sick and pregnant ones.
