Senate Finance Committee Approves Health Care For Illegals

The Hill reports that the Senate Finance Committee has authorized participation in Obamacare by illegal aliens.

Senate Finance Committee Democrats rejected a proposed a requirement that immigrants prove their identity with photo identification when signing up for federal healthcare programs.

Finance Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said that current law and the healthcare bill under consideration are too lax and leave the door open to illegal immigrants defrauding the government using false or stolen identities to obtain benefits.

Grassley’s amendment was beaten back 10-13 on a party-line vote.

Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) says of Senator Grassley’s amendment, “The way I see the amendment, it’s a solution without a problem.”

This is simply another exercise in the Democrats attempting to not only nationalize the US health care system but use it as a magnet to attract a dedicated Democrat voting bloc, illegal aliens.

The mind boggles at what possible reason could exist to <b>not</b> require the possession of a photo ID to enroll in Obamacare when right now I have to present a photo ID when I visit my HMO.
