Liberals Want Illegals Covered

I suppose reasonable people can disagree about whether or not to provide taxpayer subsidized health insurance to illegal aliens, like these liberal House Democrats want to do, but it doesn't sound much like a political winner.

UPDATE: And if you'll recall this was the issue that led Congressman Joe Wilson to shout out to the president "You lie" during his address to congress. Obama said he was tired of misrepresentations about what the Democrats were proposing when it came to health reform, including that that they would cover illegal aliens. Every time, the Republicans sought to include an amendment into a health care bill that would explicitly exclude health benefits to illegals, Democrats voted then down. What would any reasonable person conclude from that? And now some Democrats are expliciting advocating such coverage for illegals. However impolitely Wilson challenged the president, on the issue he was speaking truth than Mr. Obama.

umm, so we don't want to allow those who live here without legal status the ability to pay for private health insurance coverage, but we will provide them emergency medical coverage should they need it. which we will then pay for. brilliant.

The Emergency medical treatment and fair labor act of 1986 signed by Reagan guarantees illegals ER treatment.
