Asking this because I don't know. How do the proposed healthcare bills deal with illegals. Are they able or are they required to buy? Are they subject to the fines of not having insurance. Or is it business as usual as in "emergency room " care. Have watched many diuscussions on TV and the illegal issue never comes up. That issue alone is a great part of our healthcare debate. An ounce of pevention at the border saves tons. California is a prime example of a bankrupt state due in part to illegals. If that issue isn't dealt with then the healthcare bill is meaningless.
