Government Charges Senior Citizens More for Medicare While Providing Free Care to Illegal Immigrants

At least one Representative understands why we shouldn't provide illegal aliens with free health care.

"Providing illegal aliens with free health care is an incentive for more illegals to come here," said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., one of the louder voices today calling for tougher immigration policies. "Draining limited health-care funds to take care of illegal aliens and reimburse hospitals for their emergency care is ill-conceived and harmful to our own citizens. I will continue to oppose this kind of nonsense," he said in a statement last week.

The free care for illegal aliens comes at a time when American Citizens are being forced to pay a rate hike for Medicare. There is something wrong when hard working tax paying American Citizens are asked to pay more for their medical care while illegal aliens who do NOT pay taxes are getting free care.
