Obama in Wonderland

In his address to Congress (September 9, 2009), President Obama stated that illegal aliens would not be eligible to participate in his health insurance plan.

One reason for all citizens to have insurance is to cut costs by curtailing emergency room use by the uninsured. The exclusion of illegals from his plan leaves some 10-15 million illegals still dependent on emergency rooms.

Won’t the exclusion raise the costs Obama says his plan will curtail? Besides, the courts will likely overrule the exclusion by calling it discriminatory.

Obama also said that he will be the last president to take up the cause of health reform. Does this mean that whatever bill he signs into law is forever immutable?
