A lot is being made out of the presidents speech on his socialized medicine plan. At one point Rep Willson said "You are a liar" as the president said his bill would not cover illegal aliens for free healthcare.
Who is right? Both sort of.
While the bill may not state "Illegals will be covered" they are covered in that there is no enforcement to keep them from receiving the services at taxpayer expence. Even if the bill said "No illegals will be covered by this bill" without enforcement it will happen.
It would be as if I passed a bill saying the speed limit on the highway will now be 45 miles per hour. Of course no one will receive tickets, no police will enforce the laws on the highway or even be allowed on the highway to check speeds.
Look! I just removed all speeders from the highway and everyone is doing 45! Isn't that great! I am sure the highway is now much safer!
I saw the same thing as I tried to make it so illegal aliens did not receive in state tuition at state schools. The schools did not want any enforcement even if it was free. They thought self enforcement by the illegal aliens would work on its own.
I expect the next law Obama will pass will say all illegals should go back to their home country. If he did that he could then say he solved the illegal alien problem.
