Obamacare benefits for illegals--the Senate vote splits "Gang of 8"
Posted by Laura
This is why "comprehensive immigration reform" as applied to the 11-20 million illegal aliens in the U.S. today is about so much more than a "path to legalization." The goal for most in the amnesty crowd is to bestow both eventual voting rights on the immigration law-breakers and immediate access to all federal benefits on them. This, of course, means access to the new federal guarantees under Obamacare. Democrats, especially, believe that this will seal the deal with illegal immigrants for good. Why else would they fight so hard for this? Allowing folks to stay here and work (de facto amnesty, minus voting rights) is a perfectly "moral" solution to this problem. I hate "Gang of ----" nomenclature. Republicans should lose the terminology. We the people feel ganged up on enough on a variety of issues that the elites are determined to decide for us.
