According to its most recent figures, in 2009 there were 50.7 million people in the us (16.7% of the population) who were without health insurance. This is up from 2008, when there were 46.3 million people in the us (15.4% of the population) who were without health insurance.
If the money was a bribe, then i have some other cogent advice for us all: Bend over, stick head between legs, and kiss your anatomy goodbye, for all is lost.
They have changed signs, phone messages, schools and school books and anything else they could, to be in Spanish. I fought for my job last year, because of illegals at HR Block, coming in for their ITIN’S, and the need to be proficient in Spanish. It has become a normal thing to be required to speak Spanish on the job. Did we have to learn Vietnamese or Italian or any other language to accommodate other people who migrated to the U.S.? No! I haven’t seen one printed item that had those languages added to the English version, except some instructions.
This is the choice: Do you care more about your and the health care of the rest of the people in America or do you care more about the insurance companies making huge profits? For me the choice is obvious. We need health care reform. We need to catch up with the rest of the world in this most basic area.
I will not look down on anyone that read this post and not notice the issues that I am banging my head into a wall about. I understand that there are many people that would not have the keen eye that I have for picking out issues like this. I understand, now, that CAUSA, Oregon’s Immigrant Rights Coalition, that they obviously must not have the keen eye that I do for picking out issues in reporting about the passing of the House health care bill.

It is even larger when you look at what the doctor gets paid. (I told you earlier we would get back to this.) Don’t look at what the doctor bills, Look instead at your EOB, Explanation of Benefits that comes in a few months down the road. Don’t get caught up in the coding and insurance gibberish but instead look good and hard at the amount that was paid to the doctor. In many cases it will be something around .00, up to very rarely, 0.00.
Yes, an income Tax Refund. They will never collect Social Security, but they can go each year, never getting an U.S. I.D. and get an Income Tax Refund. They never comply with any laws here, they just live here. under the radar. I have seen checks go out for over ,000 for one family. They are dragging 4 or 5 kids in to get their taxes done, can’t speak two words of English, but we are catering to them like crazy. Abusing real Americans in the process.
