The Daily Herald style book can’t bring itself to use the words “illegal aliens,” but John Patterson’s story about the Illinois Auditor General’s study of Rod Blagojevich’s All Kids taxpayer-subsidized health care program says 75% of 71,665 children on the program were “ undocumented immigrants.”
All from state tax dollars, because Federal Medicaid will only match state money 50-50 when they are in the country legally.
Since all Illinois children needing assistance were already covered by the Governor Jim Edgar-initiated Kids Care, it was obvious from the git-go that Blagojevich and the Democrats were just trying to gain political support from people they hoped would be future citizens…if amnesty were again enacted by Congress.
Meanwhile, the program has made Illinois a magnet for illegal aliens wanting health taxpayer-funded health care for their children.
It’s evidence of what the Daily Herald reported two years ago.
