    Immigrants sue state over exclusion from health care - The Boston Globe

    Do legal immigrants have all the same rights and entitlements as citizens? And if so, can we assume that they will all be eligible for Obamacare? Should they be?

    Pick them up and deport them - problem solved. They have been taken care of by federal law which states than nobody can be turned away from receiving medical care. That is enough. They do not need to be part of perks that are given to americans. Period! But - since this country will NOT deport 20m plus illegals, the next thing is to deny them all the perks in place for americans. They will not be turned away, they will not starve, they will be given an education, they will be supported by taxpayers - as they don't earn enough to pay the amount of taxes many americans pay. The answer is still to CLOSE THE BORDERS.

    why would you deny health care to people here lawfully?

    when they work, they pay taxes. when they buy things, they pay tax. when they own property, they pay taxes on it.

    I'm not sure what the objection is.

    If they're citizens.

    You do realize that immigrants can become citizens, right?

    Now stop asking stupid questions.

    I will not stop asking questions. That is why I participate on this board. If you think my questions are stupid, please use the ignore button. Unlike arrogant, elitist assholes, I don't pretend to know all the answers. Thank you in advance.

    The answer to your stupid question was obvious.


    Not my fault you're an idiot.

    Do citizens have the same rights and perks as citizens? Do non-citizens have the same perks as citizens?

    Those are stupid questions. That you ask them makes it evident that you are stupid.

    Well Mr. Wannabe Constitutional Lawyer Sir - I'm more interested in Jillian's response, on account of her being knowledgeable of the law. You sir, are simply a pompous drama queen - who needs to find a better word than stupid. It's ignorant and well - stupid. :lol:

    If you read the OP, it states that the legislature cut them off. Obviously their team of crack lawyers didn't realize that might be illegal either. So, my question is only as idiotic as the issue - which may cost the good people of MA $130 million.

    Jillian - I am honestly interested in your thoughts. Do you think they will win?
