REPORT: GOP Senator Proposes to End U.S. Subsidizing Health Care for Illegals

BREITBART.COM:

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and other Senate Republicans proposed Sunday to block leftist states from forcing Americans to subsidize programs that expand benefits to illegal immigrants.

Sens. Cassidy, John Barrasso (R-WY), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), David Perdue (R-GA), and Roger Wicker (R-MS) introduced the Protect Medicaid Act (S. 131) to ensure that leftist states cannot bilk Medicaid to subsidize programs that expand Medicaid benefits to illegal immigrants.

The article goes on to state the following:

Federal law prevents illegal immigrants from receiving Medicaid; however, states such as California exploit a loophole by using state funds to extend Medicaid benefits to illegal aliens.

Sen. Cassidy’s Protect Medicaid Act prohibits states from using federal money to administer state Medicaid benefits, paid for by Americans citizens, to illegal immigrants. If a state such as California chooses to give Medicaid benefits to illegal aliens, the Louisiana senator’s bill stipulates that the state does so on its budget.
