American Majority Opposes Taxpayer-Funded Insurance for Illegal Immigrants
Last week, many Democratic candidates during the debates said they want illegal immigrants covered under a taxpayer-funded single-payer healthcare plan. Unfortunately for those candidates, Americans don’t want that to happen. Even in a CNN poll, we find that 60% of Americans do not want this.
Nearly 60% of Americans oppose making government-provided health insurance available to illegal immigrants, according to a CNN poll released Monday.
“Do you think health insurance coverage provided by the government should or should not be available to undocumented immigrants living in the United States?” reads a question in the poll, which was conducted by the polling firm SRSS on behalf of CNN between June 28 and June 30.
Of the 1,613 respondents, 59% said they oppose making government health insurance programs available to illegal immigrants. Thirty-eight percent supported it, while 3% expressed no opinion.
The question matches one asked in Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate. All 10 Democrats raised their hands when asked whether they support making government-directed health insurance available to illegal immigrants.
The American people have spoken, and they would like to keep their hard-earned dollars for the care they and their family need. A single-payer system that includes illegal immigrants is a pipe dream.
