A timely update on the Health Care Bill from www.fairus.org Click the links in the article for more info!!
THE COST TO TAXPAYERS IS STAGGERING AS CONGRESS KEEPS ADDING BENEFITS FOR IMMIGRANTS . . . ONE PROVISION COULD COST UP TO $30 BILLION ANNUALLY!
The price tag for proposed health care reform just keeps going up... as Congress packs in provisions to America's Affordable Health Choices Act (H.R. 3200), to allow both legal immigrants and illegal aliens to receive health care benefits that will place a heavy burden on American taxpayers.
FAIR WANTS ALL AMERICANS TO BE INFORMED ABOUT THESE PROVISIONS:
SECTION 246: The Loophole for Illegal Aliens . . .
The estimated cost of the loophole in the House bill, H.R. 3200, which will allow illegal aliens to receive taxpayer-funded health benefits, could cost $30 BILLION ANNUALLY, according to a study from the Center for Immigration Studies. Read the details
SECTION 246(d): An Overlooked-and Expensive-Provision . . .
Overlooked in the current debate, however, is another provision in the House bill that reverses an important policy regarding legal immigrants. Section 242(d) of the House bill will cost the American taxpayers at least $33.8 BILLION during the 2014-2019 budget period. Accordingly, the thirty-six words of Section 242(d) will cost the American taxpayers nearly $1 BILLION PER WORD! Read the report.
This provision waives the current 5-year waiting period for health care services for legal immigrants, the greatest number of which are admitted as lawful permanent residents. This means that legal immigrants can, rather than waiting to apply for public benefits, begin collecting the affordability credit immediately upon their arrival in the U.S. This provision will be costly to the American people and undoes one of the major reforms contained in the Welfare Reform law enacted in 1996. Read the details in FAIR's Legislative Analysis.
New Provisions: Why Not Give Illegal Aliens Access to Health Coverage?
But some members of Congress aren't satisfied yet . . . They want to add provisions THAT SPECIFICALLY GUARANTEE ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE COVERAGE FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS!
Health Care for Illegal Aliens?
VIEW THIS INTERVIEW WITH REP. SHIELA JACKSON LEE
The House health care bill contains a number of provisions that significantly impact immigration policy at a considerable cost to the American people. Make sure you take action as soon as possible because we can't afford to wait until these provisions become a permanent part of legislation that Congress could pass this year!
