I don’t believe the Government is going to do anything. President Obama or whoever is sitting up there is not going to lift a finger to make these people leave. They say it is impossible to know where all of the illegals are, yet HR Block and other tax offices, handle thousands of ITIN’s each year. An ITIN is an identifying process for illegals that lets them work, file taxes and get a refund back. We sent those checks to local addresses, that are a part of a permanent record. We can’t find them? The irs did!
One would expect that a website that was set up to encourage people to realize the rights that were due to an immigrant would have some kind of basic understanding of the United states government. One would figure that if an organization like CAUSA, Oregon’s Immigrant Rights Coalition, was going to report about an issue that would effect immigrants, like the passing of the house health care bill, they would report that topic in an educated manner.
Michael R. Blood, Associated Press Political Writer, has written an article titled, “Primaries from Calif to SC measure voter anger.” It should state “will measure voters’ anger” because nothing is known yet. What is going to happen on Tuesday is some questions will be answered. What type and how much political clout does the Tea Party movement really have? Have we been paying too much attention to them or not enough? Are incumbents going to pay a price for ramming the health care reform down our throats?
A second question has been asked as to whether the abortion pill would be covered. The best way to address this is to advise readers as to what current insurers do about the abortion pill.
In the past decade I’ve gotten five new grandchildren and lost my father. I’ve closed a business and started a new job I like most of the time. Tried to move up the ladder but may try checking into new adventures. Many changes and mostly good.
In all honesty, though it pains me to say this in writing, if those programs had not been made available to me, or if i had had lung or some other form of cancer not covered in the available programs, I would not have burdened my family with the financial responsibility of caring for me. They would never have known, unless perhaps they decided to have an autopsy performed, why I died so suddenly.
A country that allows its citizens to die because they cannot afford health insurance, a country that places politics and profit above the importance of people is a country whose character has been marred by moral corruption. I could have been your mother, your sister, your daughter, or your friend. Would you have cared then? Would you have paid for my medical treatments? And if you had, would I have allowed you to lose everything you owned just so I could live?
But raising children on ,000 a year was most of the time difficult and oftentimes impossible. I found myself borrowing money from one credit card to pay the monthly fee on another credit card, and, when electricity, gas, water, and all of the other housing expenses, including insurance, far exceeded my income, which they generally did, I had to use credit cards to pay for the kids’ ever-growing clothing needs and for food.
