You Lie, Part 3

The next time you're lied to again about illegals receiving health care remember this.

Senate Finance Committee Democrats rejected a proposed a requirement that immigrants prove their identity with photo identification when signing up for federal healthcare programs.

Finance Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said that current law and the healthcare bill under consideration are too lax and leave the door open to illegal immigrants defrauding the government using false or stolen identities to obtain benefits.

Illegals currently would not be required to show a photo ID, such as a drivers license. Without that requirement, the bill "remains dearly lacking when it comes to identification," Grassley said. "Frankly, I'm very perplexed as to why anyone would oppose this amendment," he said.

There's nothing perplexing about it, Obama and crew want illegals to be cared for by the American taxpayer. They want illegals to be able to vote and they want amnesty for them. It's painfully obvious.

Grassley's amendment was beaten back 10-13 on a party-line vote.
