Frank Luntz GOP strategy memo on healthcare ignores immigration angle

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

What kind of 28-page strategy memo outlining how the GOP should handle healthcare would avoid mentioning the immigration angle? Why, none other than the one just released by Frank Luntz. You can download a copy of the PDF from politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0509/The_full_Luntz.html (the link at that page isn't marked as a PDF).

I just did a find through the document, and there were no instances of immigr*, which is surprising since any healthcare plan will have to take into account the millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. and the fact that the plan would serve as yet another benefit that illegal aliens - and their employers - receive. And, most Americans will oppose that.

Add in the fact that the Democrats and others usually lie about the number of Americans without health insurance, and you've got an issue that even Dick Morris noticed. Yet, Luntz did not. I guess he's a moderate.
