The more than 20 Democrat candidates vying for their party’s presidential nomination are making complete fools of themselves.

Their latest fool-inducing gambit that will hoodwink millions of low information voters is to endorse free, taxpayer funded health care for every illegal alien that manages — with their help and cooperation of course — to gain entry into the United States.

We say “with their help and cooperation” because these Democrat candidates are also promising that all the illegal aliens that manage to get into the U.S. won’t be criminally charged.

What an inviting invitation.

Elect any one of these Democrats running for president — and with the help of the far liberal quartet of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and those they’ll recruit — America will be turned into a communist country.

(For those who might not know, these four Democrat representatives voted against the $4.6 billion border funding bill — humanitarian funding — to help relieve the crisis at America’s Southern border with Mexico and to help immigrant children because they said it was only throwing more money at the Trump administration.)

Taxpayers might think four or five times, even 10 times, what offering free, taxpayer funded health care to illegal aliens who would not be criminally charged for entering the U.S. illegally would do.

For starters, it would drive millions of ill foreigners to the United States. For free health care.

And because they would not be criminally charged for entering the U.S. illegally, they wouldn’t have to honor their U.S. government issued visas that allowed them entry in the first place. Because they would not be criminally charged.

How soon after these illegal aliens entered the U.S. would they be registered to vote?

The answer: very soon.

“If the United States were to begin providing comprehensive health coverage to undocumented immigrants, it would be an outlier, health policy experts say,” said The New York Times, the mouthpiece of the Democrat Party. “Even countries with universal, government run coverage like Norway place tough restrictions on health care for undocumented immigrants. Most immigrants can get emergency care but have to pay other costs.”

Breitbart News, a conservative news organization, estimates that providing free health care to illegal aliens would cost American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars every decade, or as estimated by the Center for Immigration Studies, about $66 billion a year. Which would be approximately $660 billion over a decade.

Along with the number of illegal aliens, the taxpayer funded dollar figure would grow exponentially.

Steven Camarotta, at the Center for Immigration Studies, told Breitbart that a reasonable estimate for each illegal aliens would be about $3,000 per year — about half the average of $6,600 that it now costs annually for each Medicaid recipient. And this assumes that a number of illegal aliens have employee health insurance and are afforded free health care at emergency rooms.

Today, said Breitbart, according to estimates by Chris Conover, formerly of the Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research at Duke University, Americans are “forced to subsidize about $18.5 billion worth of yearly medical costs for illegal aliens living in the U.S.”

The Democrat candidates, particularly the socialists among them such as Senators Bernie Sanders of Vermont; Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; Kamala Harris of California and Corey Booker of New Jersey, and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, think this is a fabulous idea. After all, it’s free health care.

In their mind, “free” means taxpayers are paying through taxes, and taxes are “free” simply because it’s tax money — somebody else’s money. Which Democrats and socialists believe is inexhaustible.

“The American left offers nothing new,” says Helen Raleigh, in an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal about her great-grandfather’s struggle in communist China when the Communist Party confiscated property and redistributed it among 300 million landless peasants.

“Socialism always begins with a great promise and ends in disaster,” she writes. “It has failed ever time and everywhere it was tried. Let’s not throw away American prosperity so that a few leftists can give it another try.”

Americans should hope that enough voters are intelligent enough not to be duped. The Democrat socialist candidates think they are.

Promises, promises, promises. Anything to win / buy an election is all the D’s have and it does win over the young, dumb and lazy. Hopefully some of those in that same group have matured enough since the last election and will see it for what it is. Just empty words. Vote for me and I will set you free has yet to materialize even after all those years. Only you can do for yourself.


I am afraid there are enough of the foolish to elect these destructive democrat communists into office. Hitler himself made all manner of promises to Germans, and look where that led. Socialism, Communism, whatever the moniker; will result in the United States second civil war. While there are enough fools to go down this path of destruction, there are also enough that won't put up with such idiocy. We shall soon see.


The party of slavery! [whistling] They just found a new plantation.


"Low information voters" are the very ones this page addresses. ... It appeals to the low information, anti-immigration crowd. Particularly Latin American immigrants. It appeals to those of us who have it, though we didn't work for it, and fear that our neighbor might gain equal status. Fear is the tactic this page excels at. The same tactic of fear used in the past to combat the granting of equal rights, equal education, to the non-white population. Now it's the Latin-American crowd. To this page they are all rapists, murderers, drug dealers, scum. Health care is not the issue with this page. Immigration, any immigration is the issue. It's the haves vs the have-nots. Health care is but a tool it uses to raise the level of fear among the "low information voters." Hopefully we can all rise above those fears, see the truth, and act accordingly.

In editing my comments you erred. No where did I write the sentence "Particularly Latin American immigrants." Please correct.

The only part that was edited out was where you called people bigots. You need to rewrite sentence two and three to reflect your true meaning. We tried to answer you privately but your registration email address bounced back. -Web Editor

I'm not so sure all these candidates want "free" healthcare. Right now many illegal immigrants make use of the hospital ER facilities as their primary care physician. Then don't pay their bill. In turn, all of us with insurance pay higher premiums because of these write-offs. If they are proposing "medicare for all", people will be paying some form of premium. Seniors do now !! Rather than jump off the bridge, why not find out how we can eliminate the expensive insurance we have. I, for one, would consider a public option under the ACA. Perhaps the cost of employer based insurance can be partially returned to the employee in the form of higher wages. This would do two things....increase corporate profits AND increase employees standard of living. My wife and I pay $183 every 2 weeks via payroll deduction ($4,758 annually). We have a $2K deductible and a $4K max co-pay. That means we pay nearly $10K a year. BTW, that $4,758 represents about 20% of the total cost to my wife's employer. That means each married couple covered costs the employer nearly $24K a year. Think about family coverage costs !! Rather than complain about people getting something for free or you not getting an equal benefit, lets find a way to make this work for ALL OF US living in the USA.


I have your solution, lets get the 'illegals' out, then, remove government from your negotiations with health pay options. These 2 combined efforts will unleash a much more competitive FREE MARKET SOLUTION within about 2 months. Problem solved. [wink]


TDS at its finest.


You could have edited the sentence to read "Particularly those who hate Latin American immigrants." By the way, those who hate others because of their nationality, skin color, or religion are bigots.


A country run by people who hate it cannot survive. Leftists hate this country.

So now anyone that does not like illegals running about using our system, that we taxpayers are financing by the way, are bigots and we hate Latinos. News flash kiddo, illegals of all nationalities are storming our borders, right now ! Sure, there are some that think this is just fine. Upon closer examination it is pretty much limited to the young and dumb, those that think with their hart only and those with a vested interest. I for one say round them up and move them all out and how it is done matters not. The sooner the better. Every man, woman and all their spawn. No discussion. Time for that when the dust settles. Those that do not like it, well you are free to leave as well. No doubt in my mind that you will be back sooner than later.


Wow:- That is so reminiscent of the tactic the Nazis used in ridding Germany of its Jews. In fact it is the exact same tactic. "So sad."


Wow, you do not even know FACTUAL HISTORY? NAZI Germany was not hunting 'illegal international interlopers' , Hitler was killing his own people. imo, he was HOMICIDAL MANIAC. However, this does not surprise me coming from a dem/ .... / anything but Trump person. Believe we will give him 4 more years, maybe more. [wink]

How can anyone be so totally clueless !


Agreed!!! Not knowing that only a small portion of those Hitler killed was his own people is to be totally clueless.
