“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6


"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

Joe Wilson was right: Obamacare-funded Health Centers WON’T ask citizenship status

Under Obama’s health care law, the Department of Health and Human Services plans to hand out money to local health centers specifically targeted to serve communities where illegal immigrants are likely to be a considerable percentage of those receiving care.
CNS News reports that HHS plans to distribute $28.8 million to 67 health centers, with $8.5 million specifically designated for health centers focused on serving the migrant farm worker community.
As a matter of policy, citizenship status will be neither asked nor given at the centers. Judy Andrews, a spokeswoman for the Health Resources and Services Administration had this to say about the federal healthcare grants:
“The Program’s authorizing statute does not affirmatively address immigration status, rather, it simply states that health centers are required to provide primary health care to all residents of the health center’s service area without regard for ability to pay.
Health centers do not, as a matter of routine practice, ask about or collect data on citizenship or other matters not related to the treatment needs of the patients seeking health services at the center.”
This begs the question: what are we to think of President Obama’s promise in 2009 that Obamacare would not provide care for undocumented workers? As the President then stated it, “The reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.”  If nobody asks, how can the President know if that’s true?

As you recall, Obama’s presidential proclamation was followed by an outburst from Representative Joe Wilson (R- South Carolina), who differed quite strongly — and publicly said “You lie!” — with Obama. Wilson was later forced to apologize
 for that outburst.
