Obamacare for 11 Million Illegals

by David Eldridge | Roll Call  |  published on October 1, 2015

Rep Luis V. Gutiérrez, one of Congress’ most outspoken advocates for immigrants, on Wednesday called for expanding the Affordable Care Act to cover all of the estimated 11 million undocumented migrants in the United States.

“The goal is to make integration and inclusion real for millions of families that are locked out under current law,” the Illinois Democrat said in a floor speech introducing his proposed legislation.

Gutierrez, D-Ill., speaks during a House Democrats’ news conference in the Capitol on Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015, to discuss plans to educate immigrant communities for the implementation of the executive actions on immigration announced by President Obama in November.

“As it stands right now, undocumented immigrants are not subject to the individual mandate and cannot buy into health insurance exchanges even if they use their own money. My legislation will change that. It says that we stand for inclusion.”

    The correct term is…………illegal aliens NOT illegal immigrants.

    These Illegal Aliens did not do one thing for this country except cross
    over the boarder. Now Representative Gutierrez wants to give them
    ObamaCare. How much is this going to cost? Is Gutierrez willing to
    give up his Congressional Salary, Medical Care and all the other
    benefits he receives? I can tell you right now the answer is NO.
    We have Veterans living on the streets, Veterans that are having a
    difficult time getting medical services from the Veterans Administration,
    services they were promised from going into the military for this
    country. We have Senior Citizens that have worked all their lives to
    make this country great that are living on the poverty line. We have
    disabled people that are also living on the poverty line. We have
    children that have never asked to be born that need to be taken
    care of. Now Rep. Gutierrez wants us to give Illegal Aliens Obama
    Care. What is wrong with Gutierrez?? Giving Illegal Aliens Obama
    Car will bring more Illegal Aliens into this country. If anything, Gutierrez
    needs to be voted out in the next election.

      Gutierrez is complicit with these criminals and needs to be deported with them.

    To the writer David, why do you insist on constantly quoting the “11 million” ILLEGALS number? Do you not realize it makes you look like an idiot? This is the same lie that has been used for just about 20 years now. We have 50+ million ILLEGALS here now and the damn lies just keep piling up. Next and the most important, there should be absolutely NO goodies of any kind for ILLEGALS. No health care, no welfare, no food stamps, and no housing. Any thing done for ILLEGALS is a direct slap to the face of every immigrant who came to our Nation the lawful way. We Americans are fed up with the use of hard working taxpayer dollars being given to these CRIMINAL ILLEGALS.
    All I am asking you and other writers to do is tell it like it really is all the time and stop cutting corners.

      Wish I could give you a thousand thumbs ups!
      Three Presidents in the past have managed to carry out mass deportations (and that was WITHOUT all the electronic assistance we have today). When these criminals learn we mean business, many of them will self deport as to make sure they are able to take all their illegal gains with them, INCLUDING their “anchor babies”.

    I grew up in Chicago. Luis is a little punk puerto rican gang banger and in Chi-town, the only thing PR’s hate more than “Anglo’s” is Mexicans. Poor little Luis is such a piece of crap that they have to keep gerry-rigging his district to keep him in office. Check it out:

      All Gutierrez is doing is looking out for himself so he can
      be a Career Politician. VOTE HIM OUT.

  • TexRancher

    Obama and his conspirators promised over and over that ILLEGALS would NOT be covered by ObamaCare. Yet this TRAITOR wants to reward them with free healthcare (free except for AMERICANS who are paying for it).

    Gutierrez is acting in violation of his oath of office by representing foreign nationals over the interests of AMERICAN CITIZENS! He ought to be thrown out of Congress and into Leavenworth!

    What the H E L L is the matter with these socialists? (Corrupted former democrats) Everyday there’s something new from them that invites, incites and encourages more and more ILLEGALS to invade and occupy this country!
    And while they’re at it, they refuse to enforce lawfully enacted laws that are supposed to protect AMERICANS!

    Our worst enemies are in Wash. D.C.

      Mr. TexRancher, you said “Obama and his conspirators promised…”
      Are you still listening to ANYTHING this communist, homosexual, Muslim is saying? If so, please get a bigger Stetson or get out of the sun.

      • Skyhawk

        Whether or not you listen, you are surrounded by the lies of this Islamic/Communist SOB who is destroying this country.

    • Unique

      That is why they call it the District of Corruption. Aptly named.

  • Denise ogrady
