    The health bill prevents the government from asking anybody if they are a citizen.

    Because of the lack of immigration verification requirements in the House health care bill, an estimated 6.6 million illegal aliens could be covered because they meet the financial criteria. Those 6.6 million currently cost the public $4.3 billion in emergency rooms and free health clinics but would cost $31 billion under the House health care system.

    Having to show you are a citizen was twice proposed by Republicans and twice rejectec by Democrats. The rejections are a thinly disguised way of offering health coverage to illegal aliens.

    Why is that?

    Why would the Dems not allow some form of verification clause?

    It was one of those snippets where one Rebublican was making a counter statement concerning this issue but no further info was given.
