Long, long-time Operative BG sends this in by home-made satellite transceiver:
I keep hearing radio this commercial extolling how tough comprehensive immigration reform will be, telling me I should support it because Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan support it. Big selling point – illegals who
get amnestyare “legalized” won’t be eligible for Obamacare and won’t be eligible for welfare benefits.
Well, that all sounds fine and dandy, but what happens when the guy mowing your neighbor’s lawn gets just a little too close to the guy with the weed whacker and saws off a foot just below the ankle? Are they going to patch it up right there?
Don’t be ridiculous. They’re heading to the emergency room.
But they don’t have Obamacare.
And Medicaid isn’t insurance; it’s welfare for the medically indigent. And Rubio and Ryan assure us there will be no welfare for illegals who
get amnestyare “legalized.”
So either Rubio and Ryan are lying to me, or Mister One-Foot is going to bleed to death right there in the emergency room.
One is inclined to let Doc answer this one, but almost certainly it will be handled as such cases are handled today: the hospital will treat the man since they turn no one away, knowing full well he has no ability to pay.
And the taxpayers will fund this as in some certain measure they do now; it will have little to do with either Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
