    I think the USA should provide Medicaid healthcare to illegal immigrants. The cost of healthcare is the same either way. We are already going to pay for immigrant care through higher medical prices from emergency room care. And bailing out hospitals for uncollected funds.

    It is also ethical because the illegal immigrants are working in our economy helping companies contributing to an economic boom by working for them.

    The cost of free healthcare for 10 million illegals is 100 billion dollars per year and over 1 trillion per decade. It might be cheaper to deport them.

    Rats the math says it's cheaper to keep Illegal immigrants going to the ER.

    If we assume an average $3,000 per ER visit for 10 million illegals that's 30 billion per year.

    I still think we should provide healthcare for illegal immigrants.

    Now, as for healthcare for illegal immigrants, California is ahead of the game here. They are taking small steps, moving us one step closer to the goal of giving healthcare to everyone.

    California one step closer to expanding Medicaid for illegal immigrants

    More reason for increased illegal Exodus from
    Mexico into the U.S. free healthcare and a new tit to suck dry.

    The ER only handles emergencies and doesn't factor in the very expensive healthcare costs that make healthcare expensive like extended care and advanced treatments like surgeries and cancer care.

    There is an easy solution. Don't provide care for illegals in the ER. That way the hospitals don't need to be bailed out, the costs go down, and maybe the illegals with either die or leave. However, if you want them to have healthcare, YOU should fund it for them personally.

    Deny care at an emergency room??? That's illegal. Fortunately the people making the laws are more kind hearted than you appear to be.

    I'm all for universal healthcare, but it's an internal (national) issue. Unless you think America should pay for the world's healthcare? Because that appears to be what you're saying, if you expect America to pay for the care of foreign nationals.
