Comments on: Healthcare reform may leave some legal migrants to U.S. in limbo http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/10/14/healthcare-reform-may-leave-some-legal-migrants-to-us-in-limbo/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Neville Coward http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/10/14/healthcare-reform-may-leave-some-legal-migrants-to-us-in-limbo/comment-page-1/#comment-401952 Mon, 26 Oct 2009 20:25:35 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=21231#comment-401952 Healthcare the world over seems much more of an illusion, for far too many people that need it. My company http://www.smilemd.com is right now securing doctors and dentists for voluntary free clinics, for all those uninsureds throughout the USA, who still will not have insurance coverage, even after the dust settles on the great healthcare debate.
The irony of the issue that’s left out of these debates we’re fighting this very moment is that most people in this country die from viruses that are freely contracted. Whatever then will all your money buy you then?

And 5 years is about a reasonable time wait for becoming a citizen. We should help those immigrants with a sliding scale program: Assuming health care is passed, the government should subsidize 20% the cost of their health care for each year of the immigrants citizen waiting period. ie, 20% the first year, 40% the 2nd year, etc. At the end of 5 years, when they are citizens they too receive 100% benefits as all legal citizens.
If the mentally challenged government officials having to solve these problems need help, please contact my email address. I will be glad to apply rational decisions to help them reach solutions.

MANY SPOUSES OF US CITIZENS, WHO HAVE NOT YET BECOME CITIZENS, MANY WHO COMPLY WITH ALL U.S. LAWS AND PAY TAXES WILL FIND THEM DISCRIMINATED AGAINST. WHAT WILL THEN BE THE INCENTIVE FOR FOREIGNERS TO GO THROUGH ALL THE TROUBLE OF BECOMING LEGAL IMMIGRANTS IF THEY ARE TREATED THE SAME AS ILLEGALS?

Many of them came here because of better job opportunities than in the socialist countries were they grew up,and are predominantly supporters of a capitalist system.Politicians generally target people who they perceive will support their own political party,that is why there is a push to legalize the vast numbers of illegal immigrants because they will validate the democratic party.The green card holders unless they become more vocal will be disregarded at their expense to less worthy applicants.
