What could be theÂ real rationale for Democrats ramming health care reformÂ down our throats? A witness to a conference in Washington last month described the nature of their efforts.
I want to tell you that last week I attended a conference on health care reform sponsored byÂ La Raza. And I will tell you that what they had to say, Mark, is scarier than anything that’s been said so far on the health care plan.
The kind of comments that were made and the notes that I took… they started the conference out by saying “America does not need health care reform, but Latino immigrants need health care reform.”
And someone from Menendez’ office [Ed.:Â Sen. Robert Menendez, D-NJ] promised that he would make sure that “the useless barriers of citizenship would not be in this bill” and that he would make sure that they would use keywords like “streamline”…
It wasÂ La Raza, the Childrens Defense Fund and Senator Menendez from New Jersey, a representative from his office…
…Yes [they said they would get free health care for illegal aliens], these are my notes, Mark. They actually got up and said “Latino children need health care more than whites”. And then they would say things like “you must go out into your communities, use words like ‘streamline’, use phrases like ‘all workers’ and ‘all families’,” because they said — and I quote — “If the American people find out that this bill is about giving health care to non-citizens, they will rise up against it.”
…One of the quotes they said was, “We want to make sure we take care of barriers like verification, but we can streamline programs to the more affluent” and, quote, “Useless treatments for the elderly can be gone because we don’t need to spend money for people who are going to die anyway.”
That’s a direct quote from that meeting. They also said, “We are very concerned there will be an effort to include” the illegal immigrants in this argument, so “we must make sure that we focus this” to the American people that it’s looking like we want “health care for everyone”.
And they also said thatÂ 75% of the children who will be picked up in this will be non-citizensÂ and thatÂ 44% of the uninsured are non-citizensÂ andÂ they can’t possibly allow the American people to know this.” [Ed: Oops!]
Menendez’ office said that he’s going to make sure that “a family of four that makes $66,000 a year or less will pay nothing at allÂ for the new health care. And he was the one who said he was going to get rid of specifics like “citizenship status” and focus on, quote, “equity for all workers”.
And he said he’s going to make sure that theÂ Latino immigrants are the focus of the health care reform.
And La Raza said ifÂ they get this, they don’t even care about amnesty, because they’ve fixed it so thatone family member can apply for all extended family members. And… Mark, if you think we have a problem with illegal immigration now, wait ’til you see the borders when this thing gets passed.
“If the American people found out?”Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Gee, what a surprise. A group that preaches racial superiority and divisiveness wants to enact a stealth illegal immigration bill — not dissimilar toÂ chain migration. The bill will reward illegal immigration to the direct detriment ofÂ allÂ American taxpayers and especially the elderly.
Kind of puts Judge Sotomayor’s membership inÂ La RazaÂ in a new light, doesn’t it?
Groups likeÂ La RazaÂ encourage the Balkanization of America. They promote mutually hostile political groups that do not form a “melting pot”, that do not utilize a common language, and that do not share the principles of America’s founding.
Fifty years from now, ifÂ La RazaÂ gets its way, America will look more like Yugoslavia in 1993 than America.

Action: ContactÂ Senator Robert MenendezÂ at 202 224-4744, 973 645-3030 and 856 757-5353 and politely tell him we know what he’s up to with this health care bill, that illegal immigration is not tolerated by the citizens of New Jersey, and that we will expose him — as the anti-American traitor that he is — to the public.
As for those who belong to or support eitherÂ La RazaÂ or The Children’s Defense Fund, I would strongly encourage you to drop your membership and support. The racial divisiveness promoted by these outrageous groups is antithetical to America’s civil society.
It’s time to politically punish these cretins who are out to dismantle our country.
