Bernie Sanders’ ‘Medicare-for-all’ will provide illegal immigrants with healthcare

  • 902 Views

A new report suggests that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) 'Medicare-for-all' plan will provide healthcare for illegal immigrants. His new plan legislation was signed onto by at least four other prominent Democrats. That would be "Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, N.Y., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass." as stated by Fox News.

The report on Fox News states that the legislation does not directly mention "immigrants" but it mentions covering United States "residents" with the healthcare. If they're being slick with words, then "residents" can mean everyone from legal to illegal citizens. By using the term "residents" they are technically permitted to provide healthcare to anyone living in America - legal or not.

Had the legislation used the word "citizen" instead, then that would have a different definition.

Fox News stated that both "Sanders’ bill in the Senate, and a corresponding House bill introduced by Reps. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., would extend coverage to every U.S. resident -- a shift from the Affordable Care Act, which limited benefits to citizens, nationals and “lawfully present” immigrants. The House bill also prohibits the government from denying benefits because of "citizenship status." 

The concept of providing healthcare for everyone living in America makes sense, but it should be limited to citizens or people in the process of becoming a legal citizen. If there's no one putting their foot down on who counts as a citizen/resident, then people will flock to the country illegally to take advantage of the system, which is already being abused by people now.

Fox News continued, telling how "Sanders told CBS News' Ed O'Keefe, that his bill "guarantees, like every other major country on Earth, health care to every man, woman and child in this country." He told The Washington Post: "My plan would cover every U.S. resident."

Does the word "resident" include illegal immigrants taking advantage of our welfare systems?

That sounds like Sanders' slick way of sliding the healthcare over to illegal immigrants and hoping to pander to the Democrats for more votes.
