    ACTUALLY since the illegals immigrants are working int the USA, Using Emergency rooms as primary care clinics and speaking alanguage an average american doesn’t understand AND receiving many assistance from tax payers money, Many jobs that woudl normaly go to a citizen of america, oh wait. they the GOV and others like to send the countries jobs overseas. OH and That Obama wants states to allow all non citizens to vote. He already told Secretary of State of GA he will do it period. Oh so then maybe you have noticed that Customer Service in the country is nearly null and void and hey, Calif and Florida and TX are left with billion dollar bills from health care that the state cannot pay. Portraying them as burdens on society? NAW,, I think these groups like many others REGARDLESS OF RACE COLOR BLAH BLAH. do not see the burden….. THEY FEEL IT Remember Easter Island? Resources ran out and every one died.

    Think of this… If Our Gov Cannot Adeqautly manage the system of items like Social Security, Military spending and sending our troops into dealths path and they don’t even really possibly get why they are told to fight. Some do. And then so much corruption and yet who would think they now could run a health care system? The world is in an unmanagemable state and it’s getting worse.
