Obama: Hey, Let's Legalize 12 Million Immigrants and Give them Health Care

What to do when you've already made a commitment that illegal aliens won't be covered but now must give a speech to The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute? No problem, start arguing now is the time to make them all legal and make sure they get coverage. Obama suffers from a form of the invincibility syndrome many believe prevents the young from buying health care. Gone are the days when the American public paid no attention to the campaign style promises Obama made in front of groups like Planned Parenthood . In the following video, Obama makes one of those campaign-style promises that is likely to sit well with his liberal base, but among independents and conservatives, not so much:

The Washington Times reports Obama's position that anyone in the country legally should be covered constitutes a major break with the 1996 welfare reform bill. The 96 bill "limited most federal public assistance programs only to citizens and longtime immigrants." This was also the bill that Obama suggested he was wrong about initially in the Saddleback Debate with Rick Warren.

The President continues to labor under the false impression the more speeches he gives, the better his chances of passing health care reform. He seems to ignore the polls that show 54% of the public find the more they hear about health care, the less they like it. With every speech, Obama seems to find new ways to box himself into corners that he will have no easy time finding his way out of. Promising the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute to take on immigration reform at a time when the American public is already overwhelmed with Obama's policies suggests Obama is completely out of touch with the political realities surrounding him.

Moreover, Obama's statement can only exacerbate the increasingly difficult political landscape facing the Blue Dogs who give him majorities in the House and Senate in the upcoming midterm elections. The ever expanding deficits are a chief concern among voters in the Blue Dog districts. While the Baucus bill currently enjoys a tentative CBO seal of approval, adding 12 million illegals through an amnesty program is likely to change that CBO analysis quite a bit. Obama's best hope for passing health care might just come from giving his golden tongue a rest for a change. With an absurd schedule to appear on five Sunday talk shows, a rest for his weary tongue appears nowhere on the horizon.

  1. <p>Now that E-Verify is becoming a nationwide verification application to extract 20 million plus illegal immigrants from businesses. It is now growing in aggressive performance for placing true US workers in the job line and outing illegal labor. This operation should now extend to certainly more purposeful uses? That means not just federal contractors but everybody who draws a pay check?  Should a health care reform pass all obstacles in the House and Senate chambers, it could have an invaluable function of checking people who are not only applicants for jobs, but health care reform registry. In the future it should be considered to vet a person’s nationality status, when applying for a mortgage? The United States banking system, financial institution were all but swept away on a deluge of corruption that has very sinister undertones in an organization called ACORN.
    The <span style="visibility: visible;"><span style="visibility: visible;">Association of Community Organizations for Reform now is under state and federal investigations at this very moment.  </span></span>Other involved institution impacted both Freddie Mac/Freddie Mae and a scheme incorporating underhand minority lending practices. But you might not have heard any of this, from the liberal media about the massive illegal alien mortgage accusations.  The whole debacle was the involvement in a corrupt enabling banking industry and ethnic lobbyists, using unethical methods, along with Bush administration to guarantee loans for low income and people that could not possibly afford mortgages. <span> </span>Didn't Wall Street, the government regulators learn anything from the Savings and loan crisis in the 1980’s?
    <p>GOOGLE—Michelle Malkin, she has her own blog and also Google illegal immigrants—mortgages—home loans. Find out about the shady deals which had a massive impact on the 2009 real estate crash. In Addition read how we as citizens and legal residents can demand permanent E-VERIFY. Tell the politicians in Washington at  202-224-3121 It’s about time they worked for the USworking man/woman, instead of paying-off favors to the wealthy business lobbyists? NUMBERSUSA & JUDICIAL WATCH has more answers about corrupt lawmakers and the issues that effects us all. HELP AMERICA SURVIVE. BETTER START COUNTING YOUR PENNIES, BECAUSE IF THE DEM'S PASS ANOTHER AMNESTY--WILL HAVE MILLIONS OF MORE DESTITUTE ILLEGAL ALIENS AND FAMILIES TO SUPPORT!. THE BUSINESSES THAT HIRE THEM WILL NOT!
