Today’s AYFKM? Award Goes To CA Dem Michael Honda…

…for pushing for illegal aliens to be included in any healthcare reform package.  What part of find them, send them back home, and close the borders does Michael Honda not understand?

Liberals seek health-care access for illegals

Fearful that they’re losing ground on immigration and health care, a group of House Democrats is pushing back and arguing that any health care bill should extend to all legal immigrants and allow illegal immigrants some access.

The Democrats, trying to stiffen their party’s spines on the contentious issue, say it’s unfair to bar illegal immigrants from paying their own way in a government-sponsored exchange. Legal immigrants, they say, regardless of how long they’ve been in the United States, should be able to get government-subsidized health care if they meet the other eligibility requirements.

“Legal permanent residents should be able to purchase their plans, and they should also be eligible for subsidies if they need it. Undocumented, if they can afford it, should be able to buy their own private plans. It keeps them out of the emergency room,” said Rep. Michael M. Honda, California Democrat and chairman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus.

Rep. Steve King is seeing this right down the middle, and I applaud him for speaking the truth of the matter out loud.

Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican, said proposals that include government coverage for illegal immigrants leave him incredulous.

“If anybody can, with a straight face, advocate that we should provide health insurance for people who broke into our country, broke our law and for the most part are criminals, I don’t know where they ever would draw the line,” he said.

California?  Are you freakin’ kidding us?  Are you going to fire this excuse for a civic leader?

  • Practical Madman -

    DT…how do you make these picks? I mean, this is a great choice for the AYFKM award, but there are so many good choices. Do you just put the names in a hat and pull? THEY (in DC) are just about all NUTS, IMMORAL, and, CORRUPT, so there is insanity on just about every desk in DC.

    But seriously, how do you keep enough duct tape in supply to keep digging into these idiots insanity? Thanks for your persistent digging and exposing. My head would have exploded by now, because it is about to anyway and I am sure it would if I was as deep into it as you are. For every one of these selections you make, there are at least 300 that you had to pass over to make it. Thanks for your dedication. It is a nasty job, but someone has to do it.

  • How about an award for the state with the stupidest Congress Critters? At least that’s a competition my state would stand a chance in!

  • The illegals are the reason our health insurance premiums are sky high! WE pay for their health care already, thanks to the liberals…..SEND EM BACK ACROSS THE BORDER!!

  • Madman, how do I make the choice each day? No, I do not have a hat to pull names out of because even though alot of stupid crap happens everyday, usually there is one event and one village idiot a day that says or does something so incredibly imbecilic that they earn the award the minute I read about it. Every cell in your being goes WTF? when you hear about it. Tell me you don’t have that reaction when you read the award posts.

    GG – I would love to say that NY is the state, but it isn’t just because of California’s size and amount of pandering politicians. If I were to give that award today, it would have to be the state of California or the state of Barney Frank because he really encompasses alot of pandering policiticans in one.

  • Aw, Diamond! Are you telling me Chuck Schumer isn’t worth a couple of Boxers and a Feinstein? And that walking pile of Play-do Kirsten Gillibrand could give Pelosi a run for her money given a few years and half a chance. Let’s not forget about girlfriend- slasher Hiram Monserrate, and the state legislature that refused to do anything but meet and adjourn for week while they pouted over who had the controlling vote. Or the Governor who cried racism. Or the legacy Governor-in-waiting Andy Cuomo. And don’t forget where Rudy Giuliani got his start. We’re the home of the Rockefeller dynasty, Goldman Sachs, Citi, and the UN for cryin’ out loud!

    Come on – New York has a chance! Just think of all the slime that’s here! We can do it! Ahnold’s got nothin’ on us!

  • GG – you are correct – NY does have quite a few village idiots. I was thinking along the lines of Waxman, Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein and then throw in all the activist groups like the Apollo Alliance, Tides, Drummond Pike, etc. coming out of Pelosi’s backyard with her blessing. Where is non-rep Waters (ms socialism herself) from?

  • i faxed off a note to my reps and others regarding this. i made it clear i don’t support this or amnesty. i also asked these questions:
    1. What makes anyone think that those here illegally will want to spend their money on health care benefits, when they can still get free care at any ER in the nation?
    2. How will the federal gov’t impose penalties on those that are here illegally, as per the unconstitutional individual mandate?
    3. How will the federal gov’t reconcile openly “doing business” with illegal aliens when they do purchase coverage?

  • Diamond and Grail – I’m going out of my freaking mind here. I think these bozos have forgotten the meaning of illegal. I thought it meant against the law. Whenever I can’t get to the computer for a day or two all h— breaks loose. In my email while I was recuperating from a migraine, I received a link to your posting of HR 2918 from a valued friend. My brain is still spinning.

    I have a degree in accounting and I will still have to read this bill several more times before I can digest the whole thing.I may have to turn in my diploma because what I thought I had understood about accounting bears no resemblance to what is being practiced in Washington. GOD HELP US ALL.

    Where is all this money to come from after they bankrupt all of us? This country is already in the red for the forseeable future (and beyond) and they are still milking us for all they can get.

    I suppose it’s too much to expect that they could back, just as our supreme leader told us we would have to. Our only salvation is to vote them all out and vote in term limits as has been suggested by several other bloggers.

    Thanks Diamond, for your vigilance. It is much appreciated.

  • Since the majority in DC are involved in some form of illegal activity they will never understand the point that illegals should not be covered by health insurance or any other benefit. They may vote against to give the appearance of doing what it right but they do not see a problem with it.

    If they had been bothered by illegals they would of been working to stop the flow over the border, they have something to gain ( imo votes) by allowing them to continue to get in and say we have to do somthing about their health care needs.

    I was watching O’Reilly last night and he had Juan Fernandez(another pundit I can not stand, also Marc Lamont Hill) and he said all the illegals are young and healthy and would be contributing to the tax system and not a burden to the health care system. Next segement Mary Katherine Hamm and Juan, forgot his last name. Juan’s argument was we can not have all these sick people in the general population, bad for all of us. Mary correctly pointed out that the 1st Juan had stated that they are all young and healthy. So there you have it they will say what ever they believe will make their point. The only point to be made is they are here ILLEGALLY.

  • This Book is very relevant what they did to Imus, they have been attempting to do to Glenn Beck.

    Burying Don Imus, Anatomy of a Scapegoat.

    You all have been reading where they are trying to blame the census takers death in Clay Co.,Ky., on Fox News Pundits and Tea Party and Town Hall Protesters. There strategy isn’t new Media Matters for America was monitoring Imus for 2 years to get something they could target him with to destroy his career. But that’s not exactly news and Glenn Beck a frequent guest on Imus in the Morning is well aware of what they will try and do to him.

  • To Kathy – I linked to the video and I still have chills running up my spine. These fanatics are determined to crown “The One” as the Messiah and try to do away with elections. When Obama stated on his Sunday sweep of the talking heads that he intended to be president for a long time, he wasn’t alluding to eight years, but permanently. If anyone doesn’t think that this is what is in the minds of him and his followers they had better wake up and smell the coffee. In every speech that he gives he subtly slips in a little hint that could be construed a just this plan. To use Joe Biden’s phrase, “mark my words”, bear this in mind the next time you listen to him and weigh all the things he has to say just a little more seriously.

  • Practical Madman -

    DT- yes this post makes every cell in my body scream WTF- but then just about anything that comes out of DC does the same.

    Tomorrow is the last day of the fiscal year for the Federal Government. THEY ARE TOTALLY BANKRUPT. How will they keep the wheels of government turning if no one buys our “debt”? Easy….print lots and lots more! This will make the price of everything start to skyrocket. Can anybody say Zimbabwe? Argentina? Wiemar?
