“The reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally,” Obama said then.

When Obama said these words, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) shouted out from the House

That's fine, I suspected as much.

Information about Migrant Health Center in the links below. They've been around since the sixties and they have never been required to ask about documentation status. In fact, I can only find links that they have been prohibited from asking about immigration status. It seems the program is no different under Obama than it was under Bush and Clinton.

From Link: http://www.window.state.tx.us/specialrpt/undocumented/4health.html

In 2005, Texas FQHC patients were covered by Medicaid/CHIP (25 percent), Medicare (7 percent), private insurance (7 percent) and other public programs (2 percent). The remaining 59 percent had no insurance.[36] Texas FQHCs served about 6 percent of the state’s uninsured in 2004. More than half of the 562,000 patients seen preferred to be served in a language other than English. More than 14,000 were seasonal or migrant farm workers.





Texas FQHCs are not required to and do not collect data on their patients’ citizenship status or place of birth.

Snip....

This link opens a legal brief that concludes that FQHCs are exempt

Kind of hard to have a discussion with someone who makes things up out of thin air. There is no such thing as "Obummercare."

Please do research. There are some very good reasons for this law like food safety.

You do realize that presidents don't write bills?
