The Repercussions Of Free Health Care To Illegal Aliens? $23 Billion Of Taxpayer Funds Per Year

Karen Ashley

The Center for Immigration Studies recently conducted a study that shows the monetary damages of providing American taxpayer-funded health care to illegal aliens.

“In June, the majority of 2020 Democrats running for president — including Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) — endorsed a plan that would force American taxpayers to provide free health care to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens in the U.S. and anyone else who crosses the southern border.”

Must be nice to just waltz into any ol’ hospital to receive whatever attention-seeking care you desire while the legal citizens pay your bill ON TOP OF their own.

Not to mention the plethora of veterans in our country, who fought for this damn country to uphold our Founders’ framework, have to wait for the VA to approve treatment and medications for such a ridiculously prolonged amount of time…if approved at all. We all know the VA is the epicenter of efficiency… *scoffs*

But sure, let’s just throw money at people who started their journey in America by breaking the law. Cool.

“The latest study by Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) researchers reveals that providing health care to all illegal aliens would cost American taxpayers up to $23 billion a year should every illegal alien enroll. This total includes at least 2.5 million low-income illegal aliens and their children who would cost almost $13 billion a year, alone, to be given health care.”

Keep in mind that these studies are based on IF every illegal alien properly enrolled. In which, according to their track record, I don’t think we should hold our breath on that one. What a lovely Utopia that would be though, huh? Like, based on principles only – not financially.

“Previously, Breitbart News estimated, based on CIS analysis, that providing illegal aliens with taxpayer-funded health care would cost Americans about $66 billion every year and $660 billion every decade. This assumed that every illegal alien enrolled and each cost $3,000 to insure.

While 2020 Democrats have made giving health care to illegal aliens — paid for by U.S. taxpayers — a priority, experts have said that such a policy would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.””

So all of us who are currently struggling to afford insurance, in an effort to avoid being fined, will definitely have no issue forking over more money for the medical costs of illegal aliens.

The obvious solution is to make the law-abiding citizens struggle financially to make life easier for those breaking the law and stealing from the system. Wouldn’t want them feeling left out or anything.

It’s okay; we’ll be over here digging through dumpsters while we can still legally claim them.
