Veterans Take a Back Seat to Illegals

Chad Groening, writing for OneNewsNow.com, has posted an article about how illegal immigrants in this country are put ahead of U.S. citizens, even veterans, in Medicaid programs around the country. Have we heard anything from the MSM on this issue, kids? For our citizens, ESPECIALLY veterans, to be bumped for healthcare because an illegal immigrant needs it is un-American.

Dean Heller (R-NV) proposed an amendment to the Obamacare legislation that would've prevented illegal immigrants from accessing government-subsidized healthcare. The Dems defeated the measure handily.

Susan Tully, national field director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, says not only are illegal aliens not excluded from the healthcare proposals, but they are already getting benefits before American citizens. She cites the example of a disabled woman in Wisconsin.

"She has to go to what they call a Title 19 dentist -- somebody who takes this government [dental] plan," Tully notes. "She cannot get in to see a dentist because illegal aliens and migrant workers fill the waiting rooms because they're all eligible under Title 19 for dentist care."

Tully says that clinic is not taking any more patients, adding that even veterans are being pushed aside when it comes to access to benefits.

"I've had up in Minnesota a veteran who's having to wait 18 months to get in to see a doctor at a VA hospital, but refugees from Somalia can walk into any clinic at any time and get seen by a doctor immediately," she points out. "We have this crazy, inverted system that people who are less deserving have the first slice at everything."

The first thought that springs into my caffeine-deprived brain right now is probably the same one yinz have: How the hell do ILLEGAL immigrants get to access American taxpayer money??? God forbid you not have proof of residency to enroll your kids in school, but if you want the American taxpayers to support you, it's overlooked. For crying out loud, I don't favor Americans accessing taxpayer money to relieve themselves of the responsibility of providing for their families. I'm sorry...how frickin' insensitive of me to even bring it up. Looks like "re-education" is in my future.

Secondly, if ANYONE should be bumped to the front of the line, it should be those who have served their country proudly and with honor. What, in God's name, has happened in this society when we put veterans behind someone who shouldn't even be in this country? That is a total disgrace and makes all the sacrifices our soldiers have made seem in vain. What a crying shame.

I look for immigration reform to be the next hot-button issue in light of Dear Leader calling us "demagogues" on his trip to Mexico last week. Whether it comes to the forefront or not, this is definitely something we need to let our representatives in Congress know is just flat-out wrong. Our veterans deserve a hell of a lot more out of the country they've defended.

To each and every brave man or woman who has served this great nation: Thank you. You will always have a special place in my heart and my undying gratitude and respect.

You know, veterans returning from war are considered possible domestic terrorists since Obama took office. These illegal immigrants are future supporters of the Democratic party.

Unfortunately, the future is here. Illegals love the Dems because they're promised a free ride courtesy of you and me.

Vets haven't done anything for Obugger and the Zombiecrats (in their understanding of having things done for them), but immigrants? They're the voting motherlode.

Hope vacation is going well, Dr. Dave!

That's why I believe you should need ID to vote. Anyone who can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt to me that illegal immigrants had no hand in getting this slimeball into office can have a beer on me. I'd bet ACORN was stationed along the border to sign people up as soon as they waded across the border.

You, GO GIRL!!!

You are absolutely correct. Every politician that has chosen an illegal immigrant over our brave men and women risking their lives and who are fighting for our freedom has gotta go. Citizens of this great country should not being taking a back seat to illegal immigrants who shouldn't even be here in the first place. Well, Is it all downhill from here? Me meaning-In a bad way. I hope not. For, I believe what the lady said to Specter, You have awakened a sleeping giant, hits the nail on the head. And, I believe this is only the beginning of Americans standing up for freedom and against govt. control and its out of control spending.

Teresa: Hey fellow Stiller chickie!!

They have definitely sparked a passion in people that I have never seen. Even the fight against this in the 90's didn't ignite this much furor.

Check back at about 3 p.m. to see the special message I picked for the White House.

Yet another great post that makes me SO MAD! This bastard is unbelievable, gibing preference to these freeloading scums. I can't tell you how OVERLOADED Chicago is w/ illegals, and they all tote around 10 kids, on the bus. I swear, everywhere I go, I'm the minority, and they yap and yap and never shut up.
I can't stand the assault on America, and on our Vets.
But, like everyone points out, dems have their built in voting block, so it won't end any time soon.

I'm really mad now, after reading your stuff, and Right Klik's and Teresa's I need to look at cute puppies or something.

May I suggest emo kitties? That makes me smile!

As a vet who has to has to use the VA, it can unanimously say it sucks eggs, and so do democrats when it comes to the military.

This fact does not surprise me, and I find it strange seeing the VA is socialized health care. You'd think the dems would endorse it more.

Con Scal: Let me say "thank you" from the bottom of my heart for your service.

My dad and my stepdad both use the VA hospitals and clinics. My stepdad says he feels like he's a guinea pig for a doctor in training. My dad loves it. My dad also thinks that Hillary is hot. (NOT KIDDING! Read my post about my dad under "Rantings." With Family LIke This...)

I guess the mindset of those who have to use the VA is what determines whether or not they think it sucks. Those on the right seem to be of the consensus that it sucks, while those on the left think it's the greatest thing since white bread.

I'm so sorry that no one in power seems to care about the level of care you and your fellow vets deserve. I think you deserve the very finest. :-)
