“The truth is that when undocumented workers are not all illegal, if you work under the table you are an undocumented worker. And because you are a citizen and prove no job you can get food stamps. And when an illegal has a child in the US that child is an American citizen and has the right to sponsor one person to stay in the US with out fear of deportation. The Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution indicates that "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States." The Supreme Court of the United States ruled in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898), that the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees citizenship for nearly all individuals born in the country, regardless of their parents' citizenship or immigration status. And with President Obama ordering states to ease up on illegal immigrant control the illegals have become more bold, you see the state program that issues food stamps does not call anyone because you are illegal.
Now its simple get the proper paperwork to come and work here stay your welcome go home and come back. And do not tell me how hard it is to get the proper paperwork because I have friends who are here legally.”
“The truth is that undocumented workers cost more then they are helping with all of the programs they are receiving for their anchor babies, money that real need Americans are loosing access to. And as far as the crops in Alabama are concerned no one expected that the fields would be full of documented workers so soon, if you did then you probably expected President Obamas plan to fix the problems immediately. Now DO NOT GET ME WRONG I am neither an Obama supporter or against people coming to this country to make a better life for themselves but even I see that no one could not fix the country in four years and if you are going to come to this country then do it legally.”

“It is a myth that the undocumented workers are a drain on our helping resources. Most are afraid to access anything for fear of being deported. It is just another Conservative/anti-immigrant lie.”
“So let me get this straight, with a tanked job market if I can not get a job and can not pay for insurance, I get to pay a fine that I can not pay because I do not have a job. And does my state's sliding scale health care program qualify as insurance. Not only that but with as many companies doing credit checks before hiring and my credit is messed up because I can not pay the doctors bills,I get a fine that once again I can not pay because I do not have a job. How about the privately funded medicine program that pays for my meds because I can not get a job. Or more specifically told not to work by my doctors and the states doctors, but because SSI found a doctor to say that I could work I can not even get the befits that I payed for through the IRS. And even at that because I live in a right to work state when I have to go to the hospital for a week 2 months after I started my job and got fired and am not eligible for unemployment. Now what. Even tho this is a way over exaggerated example I am sure it is happening to someone. So what about that person.”

“If you are without funds, you will be eligible for a subsidized insurance plan, depending on your resources. If you are below the poverty level, the insurance will be free. If you are driving a brand new Corvette, it may influence things. That I don't know.
Anyone who needs SSI is going to have to fight for it, unless perhaps you are in such dire condition that there just is no question. I have helped lots of people get SSI, and the magic number seems to be three. You will be rejected twice, and usually the 3rd time is the charm, if you have a valid case. A lot of people get frustrated and hire a lawyer, which also seems to help. Anyhow, the average time it takes is a year.”

“factcheck.org can help answer some of these questions. I think if you earn under a certain amount, you are exempt from any penalty for no insurance ( maybe $19,000 or close to that, not sure ) Also, the government website for the affordable healthcare act has helped me sort out my own concerns. For those who have no money, there is help. Although I dislike many things about the healthcare bill, I am finding some positive facts in my searches.”

“No that was my regimen up until last year and it worked for 6 years, so there was no point in changing it. Now I am only taking two pills a day plus antibiotics and a steroid, for other issues. The point was that they continue to improve the meds, A lot of people seem to think that they are not making progress with this disease, and most of those people do not even have the disease, I myself am pleased with my treatment. And by the way the only reason we had to change my meds is because I was forced to get off them for a few weeks when I was finally given them again I was able to take them for a week then off again for a week, then finally on them again. This caused me to develop TCP when all was said and done my body developed an immunity to the meds, had this not happened I would still be on them.”

“Meds for most HIV/AIDS patients are free Through The Ryan White Foundation as long as you have n0 job or make under 40K or can not get insurance through work. If you do have insurance you can get your meds at a HUGE discount. My Grand Mother pays more for her blood thinner then I would pay for my HIV meds if I had insurance.”
