Immigrants under Obamacare

Fed up

We’re fed up after reading about the government health plan and its effects on immigrants. [“How will immigrants fare under Obamacare? It’s complicated,” page one, Sept. 5.]

We are ready to turn Republican, and we’re sure many taxpaying U.S. citizens and others with a right to be here are as well.

Can someone please explain to us why illegals (now called “undocumented” in politically correct speech) should receive any free or reduced-cost health care from our already overburdened system?

Hardworking Americans with insurance pay yearly deductibles, co-pays, etc., and frequently go into debt to pay for their care. It isn’t free.

If the American people had been allowed to vote on the so-called ‘Obamacare’ law for health-care reform, it would never have passed.

Gayle and Robert Krona, Seattle
