Eighty percent (80%) of U.S. voters oppose providing government health care coverage for illegal immigrants as part of the health care reform package that is working its way through Congress.As ever, the "political class" wants to be generous with the taxpayer's money to show illegal foreigners that they are still welcome to come and work cheap.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 11% disagree and think coverage for illegals is a good idea. [...]
But, as is often the case, thereâ€™s a wide division between Mainstream America and the Political Class on this question. The Political Class is evenly divided on the question of a universal health care plan that includes coverage for illegal immigrants. Those with populist or Mainstream views are overwhelmingly opposed.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that up to 22% of the 46 million people in America without health insurance are illegal immigrants.
In addition, the favorability of the elites toward equating foreigners with citizens show how little elites really care for national sovereignty as a guiding principle.
