Governor signs state law extending medical care coverage
“We will, at long last, bring health care to every Oregon child,” Kulongoski said at a gathering of lobbyists, health care bureaucrats, politicians and even a young patient at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital on the campus of Oregon Health & Science University in Portland.
Through a combination of increased “provider taxes” on most Oregon hospitals and a new 1 percent tax on health insurance premiums, Oregon is adding 200,000 uninsured children and poor adults to the ranks of the insured.
So who can apply? Here is the application.
Social Security numbers (SSNs) – If you don’t have a SSN, write in “none.” Required only if you are applying for benefits for this member of your household.
This is another instance of anchor babies getting welfare while the rest of us pick up the tab. Let's see if I can do the math: an illegal aliens can't legally have an income. With no income their dependents can qualify for welfare.
It's like asking a drug dealer to report his earnings, it just won't happen.
So our politicians say they will make health care "more affordable" by taxing health care providers and health insurance premiums. For those of you who went to one of the 71 Oregon public schools rated as inadequate this makes health care more expensive for those of us who pay for it.
But the anchor babies and their criminal alien parents have one more reason to come to Oregon.
