As President Barack Obama, Senate majority leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempt to cram the health care bill down American taxpayers’ throats—those three leaders omit enormous glitches in the long term consequences.
This week, the Rasmussen report showed, “Fifty-seven percent of voters say the health care reform plan now working its way through Congress will hurt the U.S. economy. The national telephone survey found that just 25 percent think the plan will help the economy. But only seven percent say it will have no impact. Twelve percent aren’t sure. Two-out-of-three voters, 66 percent, also believe the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats is likely to increase the federal deficit.”
Unfortunately, the healthcare plan ignores and omits the biggest T-Rex appetite for health care in America today: relentless legal and illegal immigration. As of March 2010, over 86 hospitals and Emergency Rooms bankrupted out of business in California from being forced to serve immigrants that could not pay. With over five million illegal aliens in California, their plight illustrates a harbinger of financial collapse on multiple levels.
At this time, U.S. taxpayers shell out $346 billion annually across 15 federal agencies for illegal aliens and their children. (Souce: www.thesocialcontract.com , Edwin Rubenstein Report)
In the long run, why will the health care plan collapse or break every taxpayer’s back? Every month, the U.S. Congress imports 100,000 legal immigrants into this country with qualifications of taxi drivers and hotel maids. In other words, they cannot be employed past minimum wage, which leads them to the welfare rolls. Another 100,000 migrants, give or take a few thousand, migrate across our borders or overstay their visas. Another 400,000 women birth their babies on America soil for instant birthright citizenship.
Few of them possess jobs and all of them need health care, food, housing and support. If those migrants find jobs, over half work off the books and do not pay into any health care system—yet they use it at will. With 20 million Americans out of work and 35 million American subsisting on food stamps—something will explode or collapse.
ADD 70 MILLION IMMIGRANTS IN 25 YEARS WHO NEED HEALTH CARE: CAN’T POSSIBLY BE FUNDED
Can universal health care be funded by adding the projected 70 million immigrants by 2035? Answer: not a chance!
Will Pelosi, Reid or Obama tell you those facts? Answer: absolutely not!
In reality, they continue adding more and more people in order to bring less and less care at a higher and higher cost. It cannot and will not work. We face a reality of paying more money for everybody else’s health care.
YOU CANNOT TAX POVERTY, BUT SOMEBODY MUST PAY FOR IT
We will find our health care system breaking down in the cities as more and more hospitals cannot be funded. In the final analysis, we need a health care system ‘not for profit’ and we need to stop adding people that cannot contribute to that system or overload it beyond capacity.
Congress needs to go back to the drawing boards. Congress needs to understand two realities: 1. A cancer cell, if allowed to keep growing, will multiply beyond the host’s ability to sustain it and both die. 2. A person that grows to a healthy “weight to height” ratio will live a quality life. One that becomes obese degrades his/her life until it ends early or costs the health care system more than it can pay.
Today, with nearly two-thirds of Americans overweight or obese, it’s time we return to the basics of exercise, lean eating and quality lifestyles that enhance health. Unfortunately, our culture devolved into poor choices, irresponsible actions and lousy eating as a way of life. It will prove a long slog out of our ‘fat’ cultural paradigm.

If any of us, no matter what our race, creed or color might be, refuse to engage our U.S. Congress as we have not for 30 years as to the population/immigration equation—our children will find themselves living in a terribly degraded America where the American Dream will be described by the history books as a ‘fleeting fantasy’ from the era of 1950 to 2010.
