Dems will support healthcare bill without benefits for illegal aliens in exchange for promise of amnesty

From this:

Lawmakers who want to extend health coverage to illegal immigrants will not block the passage of the final health care reform bill so long as the White House offers a substantive promise to start pushing comprehensive immigration legislation this year...

...A source familiar with the negotiations between Congress and the White House told TPMDC the Congressional Hispanic Caucus will demand an agreement from Obama that health care coverage for illegals who earn a path to citizenship will be addressed in an immigration bill.


Or else what? They're likely to piss off the rest of the party and gain nothing, including amnesty. These guys are losers. Who will they vote for if not the Democrats? The Democrats know they have these people, regardless, so the can abuse them at will.

Krikorian had an interesting take on this over at The Corner. I'm not taking anything for granted and will continue to call & fax against any form of amnesty.

You could not make this stuff up.
