One more question about the health bill-sorry

I don't understand the wording of something. I sound like it say no non-us citizens will eb allowed health care. What about legal residents? they can keep personal health care they currently have?

  • They still will not refuse health care to anybody. However, illegal aliens will not be able to get any kind of federal funds.

    PG 50 Section 152 in HC bill — HC will be provided to ALL non US citizens, illegal or otherwise. - Disputed!

    There is no provision to check for citizenship prior to receiving health services even though there are the provisions:.

    Section 152 is a discrimination clause that basically said that all health services "covered by this Act shall be provided without regard to personal characteristics extraneous to the provision of high quality health care or related services." Citizenship is not mentioned.

    Section 246 on page 143 under the heading of "NO FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR UNDOCUMENTED ALIENS" said, "Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States."
