Giving New Meaning to Universal Health Care
A caller to the Dan Yorke Show this afternoon did not quite connect the dots but juxtaposed Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Roberts’ position on universal health care (she favors it) with her call for the Governor to withdraw his Executive Order pertaining to illegal immigration.
The caller raised an interesting point. Putting together the Lieutenant Governor’s positions, if the Governor’s eminently reasonable, even minimal, Executive Order is rescinded and undocumented immigrants continue to arrive in the state, what will be the eventual cost of universal health care if it is implemented? And who will pick up that tab?
