    He’ll Make Them Legal First


    From the article.

    But President Obama’s statement about illegal aliens and health care reform deserves further scrutiny.

    “There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants,” said Obama. “This, too, is false. The reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.”

    It is true that both the House and Senate health care bills as they are now drafted would make illegal aliens ineligible for federally funded health care. But President Obama has stated as recently as last month at a press conference in Mexico that he will seek “comprehensive immigration reform” legislation that will put illegal aliens on a “pathway to citizenship.”

    Viewed in combination, the president’s health care and immigration reform plans would in fact let people who are illegal immigrants in the United States today receive federally funded health care benefits when the plan comes on line. In his speech last night, the president said that the health insurance exchanges where people would buy federally subsidized insurance would not begin operating until four years from now. If Obama follows through on his agenda as planned, immigration reform will be enacted in the intervening time.

    SOURCE.

    Is a half truth the same as a whole lie?

    So Obama is not only a pathological liar but a devious one as well! I suppose the two go together.

    I think you're conveniently forgetting history. This wasn't Obama's idea. It was Bush's.

    WASHINGTON - President Bush called for a major overhaul of America’s immigration system Wednesday to grant legal status to millions of undocumented workers in the United States, saying the current program was not working.
    “Out of common sense and fairness, our laws should allow willing workers to enter our country and fill jobs that Americans are not filling,” the president said in an address in the East Room to members of Congress, his Cabinet and immigrant advocacy groups.

    And Bush lost! Apparently the only name "whoever" knows is President Bush. He has demonstrated he doesn't know his own.

    I doubt very much either Bush or Obama ever had an original idea in their lives. These are globalist policies and like any good anti American globalist Obama will make certain sure they go on just like his globalist brothers Bush and Clinton did. See signature below for details.
