Obama Health Plan to Cover 12 Million Illegals

So says Newsmax:

On Friday, Democrats moved one step closer to giving free health insurance to the nation’s estimated 12 million illegal aliens when they successfully defeated a Republican-backed amendment, offered by Rep. Dean Heller, R-Nev., that would have prevented illegal aliens from receiving government-subsidized health care under the proposed plan backed by House Democrats and President Barack Obama.

The House Ways and Means Committee nixed the Heller amendment by a 26-to-15 vote along straight party lines, and followed this action by passing the 1,018-page bill early Friday morning by a 23-to-18 margin, with three Democrats voting against the plan.

The Democratic plan will embrace Obama’s vision of bringing free government medical care to more than 45 million uninsured people in America – a significant portion of whom are illegal aliens.

And you see, this is how the Democratic party gains 12+ million votes for the next ten elections.

It's amazing to me that the proponents of this "plan" keep referring to it as "free health insurance" when it will cost trillions of dollars.
I guess the advertising industry has beat the definition of "free" to death.
