In 2009, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimated that the yearly cost of providing healthcare for illegal aliens was $10.7 billion. It was a difficult figure to approximate as hospitals are not permitted to ask if an emergency room patient is in the country illegally. After all, should an exact total of monies spent even on the delivery of anchor babies (about $10,000 per “anchor”) become known, it would enrage an American public which Democrats especially hope to keep blissfully ignorant about one of the principle reasons for skyrocketing healthcare and health insurance prices—uncompensated costs.

In 1986, EMTALA was signed into law. Part of the COBRA act, EMTALA requires hospitals to provide treatment to anyone who needs it regardless of citizenship status or ability to pay. As the government does NOT reimburse hospitals for such care, a number of hospitals nationwide were forced to close … Continue Reading:Free healthcare for illegals continues the ObamaCare way

In their haste to impose an historic affront to individual liberty, the authors of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) neglected to provide the federal bureaucracy with either the funding necessary to build ObamaCare exchanges within the various states OR the authority to award tax credits or impose penalties on the American public.
For when the ACA was written it was foolishly believed by lawmakers that each of the 50 states would immediately take on the near 100 million dollar responsibility of completing an ObamaCare exchange within its borders—an exchange being the sales center without which no ObamaCare business may be transacted, no healthcare policies sold.
But today a desperate Kathleen Sebelius and her Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have gone from depending on states to implement the Affordable Care Act to threatening those same states for dragging their feet and performing acts of outright rebellion against both the law and the … Continue Reading:The Supreme Court re-wrote ObamaCare in order to salvage it.

We should only get mail delivered on Mondays and Thursdays.
The Conservatives in the House should be drafting a bill concerning the number of taxpayer funded vacations any future president gets, and a cap on costs over which the President is responsible. Going to Camp David or their private home for extended times are fine, as they are considered “working vacations”. High priced hotels, lavish multiple, separate family vacations on the taxpayer dime must have some restrictions. Even the Royal Family in Britain has a set allowance. There is no reason our President’s, (and other elected officials perks), should be unlimited or undefined.
No politician other than the president should receive any lifetime pension from the taxpayers above $100,000 a year.
A definition of the duties of the unelected first lady is due. A cap on their taxpayer funded activities is long overdue. These women are not elected, and there is no oversight of … Continue Reading:Woulda, shoulda, coulda in Washington and elsewhere

Tea Party favorite former US Congressman Allen West admitted to investigator Lt. Mike Zullo that political expediency was more important to him than supporting the investigation of Barack Obama’s eligibility for office. “I would really have to think about this, but I don’t think so,” West said in response to Zullo’s ”Would you support an individual that steps forward to bring this (document fraud) to the forefront?” The officer heading up Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation went to the Conservative C-PAC enclave with radio talk host Carl Gallups to tell any and all listeners about the criminal law enforcement probe of birth certificate document fraud. (1) Zullo described his conversation with West as a face to face, direct on conversation with the Tea Party favorite to whose political campaign so many trusting Americans gave their hard earned dollars.
The retired Lieutenant Army Colonel said to Zullo that spending his political capital “going after … Continue Reading:Even Tea Party favorite Allen West wouldn’t support investigation of Obama’s eligibility

We’ve heard about the government spending $1.5 million to determine why most lesbians are fat and almost twice that much to discover why they are drunks, but a peek under the White House rug shows much more willful waste of our money.
Barack Obama is arming Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood so they’ll be able to defeat our ally Israel in the next Middle East war. He gives the PLO hundreds of thousands of our money each year as well.
King Barack has eaten through $1.4 BILLION in happy lifestyle spending on him, Mooch and their royal highnesses.
$505,000 of our tax dollars went to “to promote specialty hair and beauty products for cats and dogs” – yes cats and dogs!
The feds are lining someone’s pockets with $1 million a year to develop a menu for space travel with no such trips even scheduled.
They have stood over … Continue Reading:Obama is spending our money like a drunken king (no need to insult drunken sailors)
