Even though federal law largely bars illegal immigrants from obtaining Medicaid coverage, the program annually pays out more than $2 billion in free emergency coverage that mostly goes to illegal immigrants, according to Kaiser Health News.

The vast majority of the total emergency care reimbursements cover delivering babies, Kaiser reports.

Anchor babies. — Sorry, we mean, newly minted American citizens. But who can be against babies?!

Based on a Kaiser data analysis of the states believed to have the greatest populations of illegal immigrants — including California, New York, Texas, North Carolina, Arizona, Illinois and Florida — more than 100,000 people annually receive emergency care that is reimbursed by Medicaid. California, Kaiser’s analysis showed, receives approximately half of the annual $2 billion Medicaid expenditure category.

    Just look at these shining examples of human dignity, intelligence and manliness.

    I won’t argue that certain peoples have no ability to run a country efficiently and honorably, so I guess they will have to continue to rely on those humans who have it.

    Good thing congress reduced future spending by one third of one percent. We shouldn’t have a problem paying for this now.

    Their kneecaps would make great targets for my 22 Plinkerton pistol. No serious harm or death, just a little fun pain.

    @Death by Farts. Aim just a little higher and you could help the anchor baby situation. No death, of course.

    A .22 caliber vasectomy is cost effective, indeed. Around $.12 per procedure if bought in bulk.

    So to get free health care all we have to do is learn to speak Spanish and tell them we have no identification papers. That could work.

    Tell you what, I worked with people from latin America and Communist states, they hated Americans. One guy had his tires slashed twice in one week (they were sending him a message) and others would slander Americans to get them fired. The management in that company would accommodate their slander and fire Americans because all the company wanted was cheap labor. They knew they were lying. The picture you related to this article is the epitome of what many of these foreigners are like.
