    A conservative commentator and author says a recent Senate committee vote "puts the lie to" President Obama's and Democrats' assertion that illegal aliens won't be eligible for coverage under their healthcare plan.



    In his speech to Congress last month, President Obama said claims that his healthcare plan would allow coverage to illegal immigrants and taxpayer-funded abortions were "false" and a "misunderstanding" perpetuated by his opponents.

    However, in the Senate Finance Committee Wednesday -- by near party-line votes -- Democrats rejected separate amendments that would have prohibited federal funding of abortion and required people to prove their identity with photo identification when signing up for health insurance or tax credits under healthcare reform.

    How are we using them as pawns when we want to keep them from entering the country in the first place, CTB? The OP showed how dems are using them.

    I'm in complete agreement with the OP's referenced article. It's coming... and it's coming soon. :(

    The thread topic is using illegals as pawns for political purposes.

    The Republicans claim the illegals are doing work that they want to do. How many apple pickers do we have on the list?

    Kent believes the political left wants to "coddle" illegal aliens in order to use them as a pawn to achieve their socialist agenda. "They see them as the final way to change America, to turn it into a socialist country," he states. "They want these people getting services, they want them on a path to citizenship, they want them voting."

    Here's the bottom line truth that Crabby is trying to keep us from seeing by trying to sell us a fillet of red herring.
