The backbreaking work in Californias chili pepper fields and cherry orchards wasnt so noticeable when farmworker Antolin Gonzalez was young. But the 49-year-old south Santa Clara County farmworker now suffers from dizziness, allergies from dust and pesticides, swollen feet and throbbing backaches even eyesight problems from prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light.
Like many of the states 2.5 million illegal immigrants, Gonzalez does not have health insurance because he cant afford it.

Sure. Why not? Let them all have Medi-Cal. California is rich. It can afford it. Give them all $500 a month and housing too. And Food Stamps. Anything less would be cruel.
Wait a minute. He is 49 now and has been working here since he was “young” Screw this asshat. He does not deserve anything from a working American tapayer. He could have long ago become a citizen if he had wanted to do the right and legal thing... He gets nothing...........
And I don't have an Aston Martin because I can't afford it.
Oh, maybe I can't afford it because I'm paying for his health care.
At least he could take me to lunch one in a while.
The problems that this guy is “suffering” from sound mostly age related. I can sympathize because all the same crap has been happening to me. It is hell getting old, but going to the doctor doesn’t generally do much to stop the ravages of time. If he actually does work in the fields much of the time... he is probably healthier than the typical fat middle aged inactive California liberal.
