Mitt Romney has been demagoging the illegal immigrant issue. He has done this in the tradition of other Progressive Republican candidates. They pick a red meat issue that whips up the base to cover up a liberal agenda. It turns out that as part of Romneycare, illegal aliens get medical care!
The Massachusetts healthcare law that then-Gov. Mitt Romney signed in 2006 includes a program known as the Health Safety Net, which allows undocumented immigrants to get needed medical care along with others who lack insurance.
Uninsured, poor immigrants can walk into a health clinic or hospital in the state and get publicly subsidized care at virtually no cost to them, regardless of their immigration status.
The program, widely supported in Massachusetts, drew little attention when Romney signed the trailblazing healthcare law. But now it could prove problematic for the Republican presidential hopeful, who has been attacking Texas Gov. Rick Perry for supporting educational aid for children of undocumented immigrants in Texas.
I suppose if the people of Massachusetts choose to implement this, then that is their right. Just like the people of Texas chose who to give in state tuition to.But, it is odd to find out that Romney is nothing but a hypocrite.
Another very odd thing is how Ann Coulter is all over the Romney bandwagon, just like she was on the Christie bandwagon. Why is she so eager to get a soft Conservative nominated? Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmm. Maybe she digs mandates?
In 2009 between 46,000 and 49,000 Massachusetts residents were fined under that state’s Romneycare law for not having health insurance, or for having a policy that did not include all the mandated coverages imposed by that law.
