One of the most contentious subjects that pops up when the subject of health care comes around is the expenses incurred for the treatment of illegal aliens. I have an idea that will kill the proverbial two birds with one stone.
We all know that many California hospitals went bankrupt becasue of the huge expenses incurred during the treatment of illegal aliens at emergency rooms.
No we can’t turn them away from the emergency rooms and let them die in the streets and we don’t have to. There are other, much better options.
What we can do is what we’ve boon doing, provide them treatment but unlike the current idiotic situation we’ll make them pay their bills.
If they have no money and the vast majority don’t, we present the bill to their native country. I know that we should hold our breath until they pay , but it won’t be like that.
First we charge the bill to whatever foreign aid we give that nation.- yes we also add a premium to the cost becasue they are after all not Americans. If that’s not enough to cover the cost we put a lien against assets that they have in this country. If that still doesn’t cover it we charge a tariff on goods from that country.
How long do you think it will be until that particular nation’s ruling junta will clamp down on people trying to sneak into the US? How long do you think it will be until we no longer have an illegal immigration problem?
