It’s only a backstop.
Zer0 asserted three weeks ago while in Mexico that our 25 million++ peasant illegal aliens would get a “pathway to ciszenship” (aka Amnesty) beginning in 2010.
The legislation according to Zer0 is already in the works.
IMO the entire “health care reform” effort (top to bottom, 100 percent) is to make sure that American citizens pay the health care bills of the peasants, because they are a HUGE drain on state and federal social services, and someone’s got to pay their bills.
That “someone” would be us.
It WILL be us paying for them. He's protecting all of them - as they are just like him. If not, he'd have shown his birth certificate, school records, and/or visa to prove he's a natural born citizen. Instead he's spent almost a million keeping it under wraps, hidden from all at whatever cost it will take to keep it secret.
BTW, based upon this report, those Health Insurance Exchange credits that illegals aliens would be eligible for would be based upon income and would be subsidized.
IOW, all of the low-income illegal alien would get their health care paid for by tax-paying US citizens.
