ObamaCare: Gang of 8 implodes on illegals eligibility

The illegals benefits cat is outta the bag

Arizona’s squishy Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake are integral to the bi-partisan Gang of Eight that has been singing the kumbaya song of amnesty with Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham. The foursome have been working hand-in-glove with their Democrat Senate gangster cohorts Dick Durbin, Bob Menendez, Chuck Schumer and Michael Bennet. 

But a fracture occurred in the love fest Saturday morning as Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking member on the senate budget committee, put forth an amendment to a budget resolution that would have put the Senate on record as opposing ObamaCare for the over 25 million illegal aliens upon whom the gangsters want to bestow legal status. The vote went along party lines, splintering the gang.

The expansion of benefits scheme shoots a hole in the often repeated argument that we need to bring in new workers to bolster our sagging economy. Uneducated people who entered the United States in utter disregard for our laws and culture, are not optimum high wage earners who will be paying the kind of taxes needed to provide such reinforcement. They will be taking from the system and the gangsters know it. Real immigrants enter the U.S. legally and contribute rather than exploit. Their benefits scheme also flies in the face of American citizens who are struggling in this still brutal economy — many underemployed or working two jobs to make ends meet. Competition for those jobs is the last thing they need.

In previous amnesty efforts conservative Sen. Sessions has been a vocal critic, leading the defeat of such McCain sponsored bills in 2007 and 2008.  He has voted against guest worker plans which include a path to citizenship, though supporting visas for skilled workers. He has supported the construction of a fence along the Mexican border.

At the recent CPAC convention, Ann Coulter blasted what she called “suicidal policies” being grasped at by “panicked Republicans, demoralized after the last election. If amnesty goes through, America becomes California and no Republican will ever win another national election,” Coulter said, adding: “I can see why Democrats would want amnesty, but why on earth are Marco Rubio and these endless Bushes supporting it?”

Today is a good time to reacquaint yourself with her excellent commentary, Hispanicked GOP Elite: They’ll Respect us in the Morning.  Coulter exposes the fallacies of McCain’s gangsters, refuting the canard about Hispanics being “natural conservatives.”  She writes “it comes from the same cliché machine that gave us the one about blacks being ‘natural conservatives.’ At least blacks really are social conservatives — they just vote Democratic, anyway.”

Coulter continues, “As Charles Murray has pointed out, Hispanics are less likely to go to church or be employed than non-Hispanics. They are less opposed to gay marriage than everyone else — 44 percent compared to 50 percent. (By contrast, 55 percent of blacks oppose gay marriage, according to a 2012 Washington Post/ABC poll — even more, according to how they vote.)

Nor, unfortunately, do Hispanic immigrants become more Republican the longer they’ve been here, as some Republicans claim without bothering to see if it’s true.  To the contrary, they get more liberal. Cubans used to vote Republican nearly as reliably as Mormons. In 2012, 49 percent of Cubans voted for Obama.”

Meanwhile the racist National Council of La Raza, threatened they will be monitoring what they consider to be any “anti-immigrant” votes and put members of both parties on notice that their votes will be remembered on Election Day.

Shudder.

    It is undeniably obvious, the “Threesome” of MsShame, McFlake and Grahamnasty don’t care about our country’s future.
    One must only assume Rubio must think all hispanics will vote for him when he runs for POTUS. Which politically speaking is a logical move. Could “the four” be in cahoots thinking the dems are going to get their amnesty and Rubio can be elected in 2016? I’m not so sure. If the outrage causes the 2014 congressional races to go dem…all bets are off!
    It will be a sad note in history that these 4 joined the leftist “progressives” and hastened the demise of the GOP.

    • Matt Degennaro says:

      How right you are, Realist. We are being screwed over by phony Republicans who are in cahoots with the most liberal of Democrats. As per usual, they are led by the moronic John McMaverick who now has a willing partner in admitted liar Jeff McFlake. (Remember Flake’s broad grin accompanied answer to reneging on his term limits pledge: “I lied!”) Republicans expect this treatment from Democrats, but this is what happens when we repeatedly elect leftist traitors simply because they have an “R” after their names.

      President Theodore Roosevelt said “It is the duty of all citizens, irrespective of party, to denounce, and, so far as may be, to punish crimes against the public on the part of politicians or officials.”

      We need to use our ballots effectively, but it seems to be too much trouble for too many.

    When McCain was running for president he sucked up to the bigots at LaRaza, which translates to “The Race”! Their motto says “For the Race, ALL. Outside the Race, NOTHING.” Obviously, they’ll stay with him and his toadish junior senator Jeff the Flake.

    Bravo, SRAZ! A superb, well-written article!

    Some facts to back up your position:

    “JW Sues Obama HHS for Records Detailing Grant to the National Council of La Raza”

    “La Raza is well represented in the White House. Cecilia Muñoz previously served as Senior Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza. …the president granted Muñoz an “ethics waiver” so she could join his administration as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. (Muñoz now serves as the Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council.)”

    “According to a Judicial Watch investigation, federal funding for the National Council of La Raza nearly tripled from $4.1 million to $11 million in FY 2010, the year Muñoz joined the Obama administration.”

    “This funding for NCLR and affiliates has come from a variety of Obama administration agencies, including the Department of Justice, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Labor, The Department of Education, and the Centers for Disease Control through its “Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health” (REACH) program. (The stated mission of the REACH program is to “eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in health.”

    http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/weekly-updates/tax-dollars-for-obama-ally/

    Take note of the “REACH” program, specifically designed to “eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in health.”

    As regards McCain and La Raza…

    “Obama and McCain Court Radical Mexican Separatist Group”

    “Looking to curry favor with Latino voters, Barack Obama and John McCain both made high profile speeches recently before the extremist Mexican group, the National Council of La Raza, or the “National Council of The Race.”

    “Founded in 1968, the National Council of La Raza has somehow managed to carve out an image as a mainstream civil rights organization, but nothing could be further from the truth. It is essentially the public relations arm of the Mexican reconquista movement, which seeks to conquer the American Southwest – by force or by ballot box – and return it to Mexico.”

    “McCain, touting his efforts to pass comprehensive “illegal immigration reform” said that supporting amnesty for illegal aliens is “the right thing to do for Hispanic Americans…the right thing to do for all Americans.”

    http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/weekly-updates/30-mccain-and-obama-lobby-la-raza-support/

    You connected the dots, SRAZ, in a manner which is fully supported by documented facts!

    We can neatly close the circle regarding ObamaCare and illegal aliens by considering this statement by Republican U. S. Senator Orrin Hatch:

    “Hatch: Obamacare Made to Become Single Payer System, ‘They Know It’s Going to Fail’”

    “March 20, 2013″

    “By Elizabeth Harrington”

    “(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said Democrats set up the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, to “fail” in order to establish a single-payer health care system, “where the government controls everybody’s lives.”

    “And I’ll predict that within that year—now I may be wrong on this—but within the immediate future the Democrats are going to throw their hands in the air and say, ‘It’s not working. It’s unaffordable. And we have to go to a single-payer system,’” Hatch said, adding, “where the government controls everybody’s lives.”

    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/hatch-obamacare-made-become-single-payer-system-they-know-it-s-going-fail

    So here is how B. Hussein Obama planned it all out:

    1 – Implement ObamaCare KNOWING full well that it is unsustainable due to the cost of health insurance premiums.

    2 – When ObamaCare fails, as planned, implement single-payer, fully socialized, government controlled health care.

    3 – Bring ALL of the illegal aliens in the U. S. on to the rolls of socialized medicine, via amnesty, paid for with… YOUR tax dollars!

    Destroy American identity and American sovereignty while breaking the bank and implementing Socialism!

  5. Louise Ann says:

    Yesterday, after I read that all of the Democrats and Susan Collins (R) and Lisa Murkowski (R) voted to deny the amendment, I called my three local state representatives. I also wrote to Brewer.

    It is essential that we DO NOT expand the Medicaid eligibility. It is a certainty that the Dems will continue to push for illegal aliens to be covered under Obama Care. If we think the costs are bad now – wait until we are required to pay for the illegals under Obama Care. And, Arizona will NEVER be allowed to escape the expansion if we agree to it now. (This is at least the third time I have contacted these individuals about this issue – I hope that Saturday’s vote will serve as a warning!)

    • eubykdisop says:

      Here is what they are NOT telling you, Louise Ann:

      “How Undocumented Immigrants Sometimes Receive Medicaid Treatment”

      “By: Phil Galewitz and Kaiser Health News”

      “During the debate over the 2010 federal health care overhaul, Democrats promised that illegal immigrants wouldn’t be among the 27 million people who’d gain coverage. President Barack Obama repeated that pledge last month when he outlined his immigration plan.”

      “But while federal law generally bars illegal immigrants from being covered by Medicaid, a little-known part of the state-federal health insurance program for the poor pays about $2 billion a year for emergency treatment for a group of patients who, according to hospitals, mostly comprise illegal immigrants. Most of it goes to reimburse hospitals for delivering babies for women who show up in their emergency rooms, according to interviews with hospital officials and studies.”

      http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2013/02/how-undocumented-immigrants-sometimes-receive-medicaid-treatment.html

      So right now, just as things stand, Medicaid is paying $2 BILLION each and every year to deliver the babies of illegal immigrants who are admitted through hospital emergency rooms!

      • Louise Ann says:

        I more than understand that the Taxpayers are paying for medical care for illegals. And, after all, babies born on US soil are instant citizens (and the true source of the problem) – so of course we would not deny them medical care!

        The point is that the Senate is not willing to constrain their spending at any time – for any reason. And, Every Penny That Is Spent becomes an obligation of the FEW taxpayers who remain. What percent of your income are you willing to provide to others who have not earned it – because you are required to do so (rather than through charity). Not sure how much the Taxpayers owe?

    The Senate — by a 50 -49 vote — also approved the Democrats $3.7 trillion budget for next year which includes nearly $1 TRILLION in tax increases over the coming decade and continues expanded government programs targeted for cuts by House Republicans. Four Democrat senators, facing potentially tough re-elections next year voted against the budget. One weasel, Frank Lautenberg, did not vote. Real Clear Politics has the report:.

    So,again, SRA, Please forgive my diversion from the posted topic…again…but I believe the following, having to do with this R.I.N.O. that was re-elected over True Conservative JD Hayworth, should be seen:

    http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/289971-mccain-emerges-as-key-republican-in-expanding-background-checks-

    I sent McFlake a letter explaining that expanded/universal background checks would be IMPOSSIBLE unless a National Gun Registry were implimented, & that the U.S. Government had no business knowing what I have in MY HOME. This seems to me to be an IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE, as this kind of legislation directly violates my Constitutional RIGHT TO PRIVACY…or am I off-base?

    • eubykdisop says:

      Hi, Doc! :-)

      What McCain and McFlake should be busying themselves with regarding guns is this:

      “Fast and Furious’ report finds DHS missed warning signs, Napolitano in the dark”

      “By William La Jeunesse
      Published March 23, 2013″

      “The report did not name names.”

      “Following the death of Agent Brian Terry, another supervisor wrote, “and this is exactly what I said would happen when you let that many guns walk.”

      “Robert Heyer, a spokesman for the Terry family, said no one from the OIG ever contacted the family and criticized the report for failing to hold anyone accountable.”

      “The OIG has not responded to a question from Fox News on why the report did not include names.”

      http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/03/23/fast-and-furious-report-finds-dhs-missed-warning-signs-napolitano-in-dark/

      Arizona was ground zero for Obama’s gun walking fiasco which resulted in the violent murders of hundreds, including at least one law enforcement officer. Yet not ONE PERSON has been held legally accountable and the second OIG report doesn’t even include names!

      AT MINIMUM, Republican Senators, and ESPECIALLY those form Arizona, should be holding any Senate action regarding guns hostage to answers and accountability regarding “Fast and Furious”. House Republicans have gone so far as to find Holder in civil and criminal contempt and are STILL pursuing that in court!

      • Doc says:

        I CANNOT BELIEVE ANY ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA WOULD SUPPORT ANY SORT OF GUN LEGISLATION, PERIOD! There are 25,000 gun laws on th’ books, for GOD’S SAKE! They haven’t stopped a SINGLE GUN CRIME! Maybe they oughtta’re-think it…but NNNNOOOOO…their way is th’ right way & CONSTITUENTS BE DAMNED! Immigration reform, NDAA, Gun Control, Fast-N-Furious, BAJILLIONS of rounds of ammo bein purchased ny dammit janet & she REFUSES TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS?!?!?! And Idiot eric holder’s held in contempt of Congress?!?! SO WHAT?!? What have they done to him? I’a’ had Sheriff Joe waitin’ for his sorry @$$ outside on THAT Day, & his butt’d be back in Tent-city so fast, he’da thought “Scotty” from Startrek BEAMED him there!

      • eubykdisop says:

        Keep the faith, Doc! The apparent success of the Liberal left is nothing but smoke and mirrors and their house of lies and deceit WILL come tumbling down!

        Take this for example. The Liberal media aren’t putting on their front pages how New York Governor Cuomo is taking it in the shorts over his ill conceived gun legislation:

        “Cuomo’s 7-Bullet Limit Suspended Indefinitely in NY Gun Law Debacle”

        “Sunday, 24 Mar 2013″

        “Governor Andrew Cuomo’s seven-round limit on magazines sold in New York will be suspended “indefinitely” by a measure in his $136.5 billion budget set to be passed this week, Dean Skelos, a Senate majority leader said.”

        “The ban on magazines holding more than seven bullets was set to start April 15. Cuomo has said the law needs to be rolled back because manufacturers don’t make seven-round holders.”

        http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/cuomo-7-bullet-limit/2013/03/24/id/496096

        Oooops! The would be Liberal Democrat 2016 presidential candidate has to quietly ROLL BACK part of his much touted high profile gun legislation… because he is SO ignorant that he didn’t even know that seven round magazines don’t exist! Duh! Way to go, Cuomo, LOL!

    Let’s see…..

    The AZGOP now has Flake’s bro-in-law (Chad Heywood) as the exec director for the Party, along with the ex-Political Director of the AZ Chamber of Commerce and Industry/Lobbyist (Gretchen Conger Martinez) as their Chief of Staff??

    I ask you: How does that reflect the will of the PC’s? What message will that send to McLame and Flakey?

    Strike one for Robert Graham. Is he really that clueless?
