Actually, I commented on my blog that Obama would try this end-run just after Obama was correctly called a liar by Joe the Congressman Wilson during the joint session of Congress. We all remember, no doubt, Obama pontificating before Congress that people in country illegally would not be provided ObamaCare.
Then Pelosi rounded up her Socialist Posse in the House of Representatives to target Joe Wilson who spoke the truth.
Such are the tactics of Socialists.
And, least we forget the Astro-tears of Nanci Pelosi wringing her hands over opposition rhetoric while ignoring her own slandering of dissenting Americans calling them ‘Astroturf’, ‘Un-American’, minions of special interests. She personally DEMONIZED Legitimate Grass Roots Dissension with the Socialist’s Agendas.
What a MOONBAT you are Pelosi…
Obama, after being called out as a liar, backed off from including Illegal Aliens as members of Americans not presently health insured and reduced the 47 Million number he had been throwing around and in the blink of an eye, after being called on his lie by Joe the Congressman, he changed it to 30 Million uninsured.
Gee… Obama & Co must think Main Stream Americans are completely stupid.
So what has Obama pulled now? He is pandering to the Latino Community that ohhh don’t worry, we will cover those illegal aliens anyway… we will just give them aministy and PRESTO! they will be citizens eligible for ObamaCare.
Obama? The main reason for opposition to providing Illegal Aliens free health care is the COST, stupid.
You Can Not Craft an ObamaCare Bill without Robbing Peter to Pay Paul.
The country is in extremely deep debt and in a very deep recession with true unemployment exceeding 14% nation wide when accurately counted.
And you want to saddle the American Tax payers with funding health care for people who are Illegal Foreign Nationals living illegally in this country?
WHAT PLANET ARE YOU FROM OBAMA?
Lets all take a good look at this news article from the New York Times today, SHALL WE???

Republicans see a backdoor move toward ‘amnesty’
President Obama said this week that his health care plan won’t cover illegal immigrants, but argued that’s all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage.
He also staked out a position that anyone in the country legally should be covered – a major break with the 1996 welfare reform bill, which limited most federal public assistance programs only to citizens and longtime immigrants.
“Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don’t simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken,” Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. “That’s why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else.
Mr. Obama added, “If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all.”
Republicans said that amounts to an amnesty, calling it a backdoor effort to make sure current illegal immigrants get health care.
“It is ironic that the president told the American people that illegal immigrants should not be covered by the health care bill, but now just days later he’s talking about letting them in the back door,” said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee.
“If the American people do not want to provide government health care for illegal immigrants, why would they support giving them citizenship, the highest honor America can bestow?” Mr. Smith said.
But immigrant rights groups see the speech as a signal that Mr. Obama is committed to providing health care coverage for anyone in the United States legally, regardless of their citizenship status.
“It’s the first time I’ve certainly heard, publicly, him talking more about legal immigrants,” said Eric Rodriguez, vice president for research and advocacy at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR). “I think that was certainly positive progress. We were absolutely concerned about not hearing that.”
