Every once in a while, a health care provider will do something that makes my blood boil with anger. As far as I'm concerned, they're faceless and ruthless parasitic blood suckers. An “event” recently occurred in the case of one of my friends and neighbor.
As we all know, medical providers treat illegal aliens and they simply skip out on paying billions of dollars in bills. Simply put, "No papers. No pay!" This has bankrupted many hospitals and has crippled the country's entire healthcare system. As always, the idiot politicians side with the criminal invaders and stick the taxpayers and those that pay excessively high premiums for inferior service with the bill. What becomes of the poor White Americans that cannot pay the bill? Some 30 million White Americans live in poverty.
My friend and neighbor, Thora, has been out of work for more than a couple of years. She spent most of that time with zero income and absolutely NO healthcare. Unfortunately, we live in a rural community with no public transportation that's 70% Mexican. Employment opportunities are next to none for White People.
This being the case, we know all too well how minorities are unfairly treated and that joining pro-white political groups may be in their best interests. There's nothing wrong with being “racially aware” and advocating what's best for one's own people.
With a little assistance from me, I helped Thora apply for AHCCCS benefits from the AZ DES. She was approved and after many years, finally got a medical examination. Unknown to her, she was expected to pay a $5.00 co-pay. With zero income, she could not pay. To most working people and large multi-million dollar healthcare providers, $5.00 isn't very much money. To Thora, it's $5.00 more than she has.
To pour salt in an already festering wound, Desert Ridge Urgent Care DBA Maricopa Urgent Care (a.k.a. the "bad guys") have on two separate occasions spent $0.44 on postage to send Thora a bill and a threat of sending it to a collection Agency. It won't be long before they spend more on postage than the debt is worth.
I think it's absurd to forward a $5.00 debt to a collection agency. Why doesn't Desert Ridge Urgent Care go after some of the bigger fish. I mean, the illegal aliens who were assisted by the crooked politicians that created this healthcare nightmare?
In the mean time, we also have thousands of people that cheat the AZ DES by lying about their addresses and living arrangements in order to get benefits they are not eligible for. We need more verification and enforcement to keep those unworthy individuals from receiving benefits. We should drug test every recipient and throw the bums that fail off the rolls. People who can afford recreational drugs have no business being a burden on the rest of us.
Illegal Aliens Bankrupting Our Hospitals - Also A Word About Socialized Healthcare
Ask your legislator. . . Why isn't our government treating illegal immigration as a crime?
Hospitals are going bankrupt and this will leave little choice of healthcare for legal citizens of this country. Universal healthcare/Socialized medicine will not fix this problem. . .border control will.
If we aren't sending people home who are here illegally, then we ought to be billing (and collecting from) their country of origin for their healthcare, their education, their housing and even their incarceration. http://yedies.blogspot.com/2009/06/illegal-aliens-bankrupting-our.html
As a result of the Federal Emergency Medical Act, Mexican ambulances are transporting hospital patients who are unable to pay for medical care in Mexico to hospitals in the United States. The ambulances are driving through unguarded potions of the border with “little resistance”. Go ahead, look this up. It will make you angry. Remember this the next time your insurance company decides not to cover part of your treatment.
Why are we sitting back and taking this? All of us should be out screaming and yelling in the streets and at the offices of our elected “non-representatives”. Stand up and speak out! We must agitate.
Cost of Illegal Immigration Rising Rapidly in Arizona, Study Finds
FAIR's new breakdown shows that illegal immigrants take $1.6 billion from Arizona's education system, $694.8 million from health care services, $339.7 million in law enforcement and court costs, $85.5 million in welfare costs and $155.4 million in other general costs. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/05/17/immigration-costs-rising-rapidlty-new-study-says/#ixzz1NIrrzDHJ
Send an email, write and/or call your representatives and demand they take action to fix the problems which allow illegal aliens to benefit from our systems, Systems that should be reserved for those of us here LEGALLY! The voice of “We the People” is loud when it wants to be. We can be heard and fix the problems which are dragging us down and denying our children the futures they deserve.
Please call Desert Ridge and waste more than $5,00 worth of their time complaining. Tie up their phone.
