Health Insurance for Illegal Aliens?
By: John Lillpop
Much ado is being made about reforming health care so that all children in California have health care insurance. Liberal politicians would like to include the children of illegal aliens in any insurance reform.
The argument for this proposal goes something like this: By spending taxpayersâ€™ money for preventative health care, even greater costs will be avoided in the future.
No taxpayer money—local, state, or federal–should be spent on illegal aliens. Rather, such people and their children should be returned to their nation of origin, which is Mexico for the overwhelming majority of those currently here.
The Mexican government, not U.S. taxpayers, should bear responsibility for the health and well being of Mexican citizens.
American taxpayer funds should be used to help U.S. citizens who are low-income and seniors. Such people have paid taxes all their lives and deserve assistance.
