No ID Check For Illegals’ ObamaCare

Although American voters – by a 71% to 16% margin – favor requiring all foreign visitors (including illegal immigrants) to carry a universal identification card, and although 74% of U.S. voters believe the federal government is not doing enough to secure the country’s borders, the Dems in Congress are determined to thwart the people’s will.

My one word comment on the news below is “Aargh!” – accompanied with hair-pulling….

Senators turn back ID requirement for immigrant healthcare

Senate Finance Committee Democrats rejected a proposed 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.

The bill, authored by committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), would require applicants to verify their names, places of birth and Social Security numbers. In addition, legal immigrants would have to wait five years, as under current law, after obtaining citizenship or legal residency to access federal healthcare benefits such as Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program or receive tax credits or purchase insurance through the exchange created by the legislation.

But the bill would not require them to show a photo ID, such as a drivers license. Without that requirement, the bill “remains dearly lacking when it comes to identification,” Grassley said. “Frankly, I’m very perplexed as to why anyone would oppose this amendment,” he said.

But Democratic Sen. Jeff Bingaman, who represents the border state of New Mexico, said that the type of fraud Grassley said he wants to prevent is highly uncommon. “The way I see the amendment, it’s a solution without a problem,” Bingaman said.

I’ve already made it abundantly clear to Nelson that I will actively campaign against him in 2012. He’s going to get another scathing email shortly about this NO I.D. vote. I’ll also send one about the Cap & Tax that Kerry/Boxer want to pass. Enough already!!

Now you jerk I know the facts and the facts are you are there to do the will of the people and you are not. He should be forceibly removed and all othes who took an oath to protect the Constituition. I believe it is nothing short of Treason in a time of war…………….and we all know the penalty for that. Just hope the Military comes to their senses soon. While barry has been lobbying for the olympics and McCrystall has made his request for more Soldiers…43 Brave men have died……………..Where is the GD outrage now. This is Barrys effin war, and folks he’s doing everything he can to reasemble the dream team in basketball while our warriors die. B. Hussain Obamma Has to go and Go now. Militay people get off your ass. It is not illeagal to disobey an illeagal order. Take him to the stockade NOW. Or we all die……………………….Steve…………………we will fight with ya brothers

Steve,

Dude, calm down some, just a little, you’re losing concentration, it’s illegal.LOL 🙂

I recieved a response from Nelson a few days ago, like you said, I’m not an Obamabot. I turned right around and sent him another reply Stressing that fact I don’t want gov’t involved in healthcare, and answered him back point by point. And, like, littlemissmuffin, I told him,I’m watching and will vote according to how he does his JOB!

Bob. 😉

Hmmm- THE SOUTH WILL RISE AGAIN- BEWARE and FOREWARNED!!!!!

Democratic Sen. Jeff Bingaman is either as big a liar as Obama or as dumb as Biden. “The way I see the amendment, it’s a solution without a problem,” Bingaman said.

This guy has to go!

Bingaman has been in office since 1983. That automatically makes him a lifetime lib with no care for the consequences of their policies.

He’s probably never stepped inside an ER room close to the border on a Saturday night. What a tool…
