Ending Taxpayer-Funded Health Care Subsidies for Illegal AliensPosted by Randy | June 09, 2011
As of 2009, there were 10.8 million unlawful aliens in the United States according to estimates from the Department of Homeland Security. These illegal aliens cost taxpayers billions of dollars and take jobs away from hard-working Americans.
Under the President’s health care law, individuals applying to receive health care subsidies are only required to provide a Social Security number, their name and date of birth. As a result, illegal aliens are given an easy opportunity to circumvent the law that denies subsidized health care to illegal aliens.
I am co-sponsoring the No Health Care Subsidies for Illegal Aliens Act. This bill would require those applying for health care subsidies to submit a sworn statement attesting to their legal status as well as provide satisfactory documentation that proves they are either a U.S. citizen or that they entered the country legally.
Weigh in with your thoughts on how we should ensure that illegal aliens do not receive health care subsidies.
