President Obama's Speech and Illegal Immigrants health Care Reform

Recently President Obama gave a speech to the nation about his health care reform ideas and plans. Needless to say, it ruffled some feathers. In fact, one congressman decided to rudely interrupt the President to call him a "liar" during the nationally televised speech.

Face the facts. As a taxpayer, you are paying for care for illegal immigrants already. Does this bother you? Just take a look at California. There are millions of undocumented immigrants in that state.

Health Care Reforms

According to the California department of health Care Services, there are almost 800,000 undocumented immigrants in that state who are receiving health care benefits of some kind. The estimated cost to taxpayers for just the Medi-Cal schedule is over one billion dollars.

However, in fairness, California has an estimated 25% of all undocumented immigrants in the United States, so don't take those figures and multiply them by 50 states. Right or wrong, the cost of these services is rising.

In his collective speech, President Obama made it fairly clear that he wasn't interested in making health care passage for the illegal immigrants any easier. At the same time, he's not going to make anyone tougher, so it's a game of status quo.

During his speech, Rep. Joe Wilson, South Carolina Republican, yelled "You Lie!" at President Obama while he was talking about illegal immigrants and health care reform. While he apologized, the damage is done and he might be on his way out of office for the disrespectful act.

The demand begs to be asked. Should we basing our views on health reform for both Us citizens and illegal immigrants on such an greatest case, as California?
