State of Washington

Posted on Mon, Jan 3, 2011 at 9:12 AM

How can you seriously justify canceling state medical benefits to over 27,000 of our youth in this state and then turn around and approve state medical coverage for over 11,000 "Illegal" immigrants? This is absolutely ridiculous! Why the hell should Washington State tax payers cover the cost for medical benefits for these illegal immigrants? As a tax payer I would rather see the youth from around our state continue to receive their medical benefits so they have coverage to help keep them healthy while growing up. A healthy young person more than likely will grow into a productive adult. An illegal immigrant getting everything handed to them without being a citizen of this country or state will only expect and try to get more for free. Sorry if this offends some of you out there reading this but our government needs to get their priorities straight. This decision to cut the medical benefits makes me absolutely sick. We need to take care of our own before taking care of the world.
