Now that everyone has affordable or free insurance, it’s time Americans start paying even more taxes to buy coverage for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country.
That must be the reasoning behind half of the Democratic candidates running for president declaring their agreement for the proposal during last week’s debate.
Keep in mind, PeakNation, Colorado’s own U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet as well as former Gov. John Hickenlooper were two of those candidates waving their hands in the air for support when asked the question by moderators.
Why else would they agree to it, unless they thought the insurance Coloradans and the rest of the nation have is satisfactory, and apparently cheap enough for us to pay even more.
Keep in mind, we’re already paying health care costs of America’s poor out of our own pockets, while we can’t even afford our own health insurance with outrageously high deductibles.
And now, Bennet and Hick want us to literally cough up even more money to buy this lousy insurance for people who overstayed their visas or overran the border?
Remember this, PeakNation, when Bennet drops out of the presidential race and runs for reelection for his Colorado Senate seat in 2022.
If Hick was planning to run against U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner when he drops out as well, this pledge will haunt him until the end of days.
