Healthcare is easily taken care of, without any of the reforms the two parties. The reason our healthcare is in shambles and ridiculously over-burdened with costs is in plain sight in just about any emergency room. Illegal aliens know we'll provide medical attention to them for free at the emergency room. Now, I have no problem with providing them immediate medical attention, but if they can't produce documents explaining who they are or why they're here, they should be turned over to the border patrol. This will prevent our emergency rooms from having to endure huge crowds caused by people with a cough, or runny nose. Why shell out money, they'll do it for free at the emergency room. Like Michelle Obama says: “The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.” Michelle Obama. What the First Lady clearly doesn't realize is that is already happening, and that's the problem. Honest taxpaying citizens are having their wallets cyphoned for healthcare because let's face it, they need to make up the money somewhere. Poor people in this country have Medicaid, so what's the problem? I see a lot of blame being thrown at insurance companies, but we all know doctors don't come cheap, and insurance companies have to make payroll just like any other company, while still turning a profit. While the alternative ideas from Republicans looks promising, I don't see an answer for the huge money-pit in our emergency room. I suspect neither party is willing to tackle this because businesses utilize illegal immigrants constantly, alienating all businesses that thrive on cheap labor. At the same time, the name-calling Democratic Party will cry racism, and apparently Republicans think we're stupid enough to believe that garbage. There's nothing racist about giving illegal aliens free healthcare, and then asking them to leave. I don't care if they're here illegally from any country, any race, any religion. No exceptions, it's illegal, that's it. Pay your dues, get your green card, get your citizenship, and pay into the system that allows you to thrive and prosper so much more. You'll notice Americans treating you like you're one of them more and more. Now, it'd be nice if you'd learn English like ol' Teddy Roosevelt suggests in the quote below, but since we've not declared it our national language (much to my disappointment), I can only hope you're excited enough about being an american to learn it. I think everything else Teddy said rings true though.
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
