For anyone who wonders what the cost consequences of including illegal aliens under Obamacare would be, let them look to California's immigrant-dominated San Joaquin Valley. There, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, 25 percent of residents do not have insurance coverage. Many of them are illegal aliens. [25% in the Valley Lack Health Insurance, by Russell Clemings, Fresno Bee, October 3, 2009]
"Insurance" includes Medi-Cal or Medicare and not just employer-based or private insurance.
Extending Obamacare to illegal immigrants would merely increase the taxpayer tab that is already too high and supports a large portion of San Joaquin Valley's population of 650,000 that shouldn't be here to begin with.
