It’s an “OBAMANATION” – Illegal Aliens VS Veterans Healthcare

It Boarderseems the Obama administration is cutting benefits to our veterans and withholding pay raises to our military (and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII). But what we aren’t stopping are the payments or benefits to illegal aliens. One might come to the conclusion that illegal aliens may be taking front stage to the men and women who have given their all to this country and to every one of us so that we may live safe and secure in the wonderful freedoms that remain.

 If it is the government’s role to secure all of our borders but fails to do so, why are the ones who fight to protect us being targeted with benefit cuts when they are the last ones who deserve it?

 The influx of illegal aliens into our country falls on the shoulders of our government, not individuals or the military. “A government that fails to secure its borders is guilty of dereliction of duty. A government that fails to care for our men and women on the front lines is guilty of malpractice. A government that puts the needs of illegal aliens above U.S. veterans for political gain should be prosecuted for criminal neglect bordering on treason,” stated

Is the government putting the needs of “our” illegal aliens above the U.S. veterans and if so why?

 “In Sacramento, Calif., lawmakers are moving forward with a budget-busting plan to extend government-funded health insurance to at least 1.5 million illegal aliens.” But in Los Angeles and estimated 40,000 tests and treatments were canceled for veterans because of the “decade-long backlog” and issues that plague our VA Hospitals.

Doctors in New York reported that a whooping 40 percent of the patients who receive dialysis for kidney issues are illegal aliens. “A survey of nephrologists in 44 states revealed that 65 percent of them treat illegal aliens with kidney disease.” This is the tip of the iceberg of conditions and treatments being given to illegal aliens while our heroes fight for their lives under unimaginable conditions of neglect.

Couldn’t we all see the handwriting on the wall? When a government increases entitlements to illegal aliens, citizens will suffer the consequences.

 The GOP (Republican “Grand Old Party”) put pressure on Obamacare advocates to put an illegal-alien ban on eligibility. The Obama administration insured that no benefits would be passed on to any undocumented person. Why then have representatives confessed that almost 4000 undocumented persons were “accidentally” enrolled in Obamacare instead of Oregon’s low-income Medicare program? Obama, this may come as a shock to you but that is a violation of the law! Though they “discovered the problem several weeks ago and are correcting it,” how many veterans do you think would have jumped at the chance for the care the illegal aliens received?

Jeh Johnson made a letter public to families with illegal-alien relatives saying, “no one would be deported for seeking Obamacare services.”

 “No one in America who is eligible should be afraid to apply for health coverage because they have a family with mixed status,” said Johnson. He then went on to say, “Enrolling in health coverage…will not prevent your loved ones who are undocumented from getting a green card in the future or who do not yet have a green card at risk.” To many this is just a good will sign for mass amnesty for illegal-aliens. It isn’t rocket science that so many Americans wonder why our veterans wait up to a year or more to receive basic care while illegal aliens receive the next available appointments.

 As I have reported earlier, at least 40 veterans died in Phoenix, allegedly waiting for treatment while, completely unaware they were never going to receive the treatment they need because they were being bounced between real and fictitious waiting lists. All the while, in 2009, illegal aliens acquired upwards of $700 million in health care costs. Is it really our veterans who need to pay the price for those who are here illegally?

 A Memphis whistle-blower reported, “The hospital he worked in was using contaminated kidney dialysis machines to treat America’s warriors. The same hospital previously had been investigated for chronic overcrowding at its emergency room, leading to six-hour waits or longer. In addition, three patients died under neglectful circumstances, and the hospital failed to enforce accountability measures,” reports The Washington Post.

 Americans shouldn’t be too shocked, however. If you recall, in 2009, President Obama signed an enormous extension of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP). This law relaxed eligibility requirements for illegal immigrants and their children by diluting document and evidentiary principles. This made it so much easier to use fake Social Security cards which, in turn, allowed them to apply for benefits with very little chance of being discovered. Unbelievably, S-CHIP’s extension also made any Medicaid-application time limits null and void.

 Though there seems to be no hope of containing the inflow of illegal aliens during this administration, there may be hope for our vets if Sen. Bernie Sanders gets his way.

Sen. Sanders, of Vermont, is the longest serving Independent member of Congress in history.

 The Restoring Veterans’ Trust Act of 2014 is described by Sanders as having the ability to “…give the VA authority to immediately remove senior executives based on poor job performance while preventing wholesale political firings. It would provide veterans who can’t get timely appointments with VA doctors the option of going to community health centers, military hospitals or private doctors. It would authorize VA to lease 27 new health facilities in 18 states. It would authorize emergency funding to hire new doctors, nurses and other providers in order to address system-wide health care provider shortages and to take other steps necessary to ensure timely access to care. To address primary care doctor shortage for the long-term, the bill would authorize the National Health Service Corps to award scholarships to medical school students and to forgive college loans for doctors and nurses who go to work at the VA,” reports Politicus USA.

 Most Americans are questioning why these laws are not already in place and why any veteran or member of our military is subjected to unfair, unjust and inhumane treatments while we care for “our” illegal aliens in superior ways because we are afraid of offending someone.

 “America: medical and welfare welcome mat to the rest of the world, while leaving its best and bravest veterans to languish in hospital lounges, die waiting for appointments…” while illegal aliens are basking in the hard-earned rights that should be given our veterans and every other American citizen. It’s shame on us for allowing this “Obamanation” to happen on our watch.
