Whatever they tell us the cost is, it will only be the down payment

Government run health care locally: The predictions on cost, illegal aliens and government takeover.
School Based Health Centers: Funding and Operations
Oregon’s School-Based Health Center (SBHC) program has benefited from over 20 years of support by the Oregon Department of Human Services and the Oregon Legislature. What began with an initial commitment of $212,000 to partially fund five SBHCs grew to a commitment of $5,839,000 to support 55 certified SBHCs and up to 12 planning sites in the 2009-2011 biennium.

It went from $212K to almost $6 million.

Services are available to students regardless of their ability to pay, insurance status, race, color, national origin, religion, immigration status, sexual orientation, handicap, or gender. Reasonable accommodations are made to provide confidential services to non-English speaking students.

It serves illegal aliens.

The SBHCs are located on school grounds and are open and operating when the kids are in school. As a result, students are back in class faster than had they sought health care in a non-SBHC setting. Additionally, parents do not need to take time off work in order to transport the sick student to a doctor.

The school health care program takes the place of parents. Your children are kept in a government setting, see government doctors and you are not involved. You don't even get to take your child to see the doctor.

I wish they had this in Salem as my Son broke his hand in PE and the quick visit to the Salem ER cost us almost $2,000 !!!!

That's right over $650 just too sit in the waiting room, watching rated NC17 Spanish lang. soap operas at 1 in the afternoon.

I guess if we had a lot of illegal aliens here they would have a not really Free clinic in the school.

Since the illegals do not pay taxes and get everything for free, can I give up my citizenship? PLEASE!

I can't afford to be an American anymore and pay my taxes and dr. bills and my rent and my food and...

Daniel, YES the whole damn illegal Family can get "free" care too!

You left out this appalling sentence from their website... "In some instances, the centers provide services to siblings, families, and community members as well."

So "free" ESL, B-fast & Lunch and also Health Care?!

Who is the fucking idiot that claims that this invasion is good for the economy!
