We've all heard the term "astro-turf" coined by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to apply to grassroots opposition to the nationalization of Americans' health care.

And, we've heard President Obama state that illegal aliens would not be covered under Obamacare (which we exposed as another "You Lie" moment a couple of weeks ago).

"Fearful that they're losing ground on immigration and health care, a group of House Democrats is pushing back and arguing that any health care bill should extend to all legal immigrants and allow illegal immigrants some access."

"The Democrats, trying to stiffen their party's spines on the contentious issue, say it's unfair to bar illegal immigrants from paying their own way in a government-sponsored exchange. Legal immigrants, they say, regardless of how long they've been in the United States, should be able to get government-subsidized health care if they meet the other eligibility requirements."
This is different from the president's plan to exclude illegals (while they're illegal), then grant amnesty under "immigration reform" to make formerly-excluded illegal aliens into fully- included legal citizens.

And, joining in the chorus for illegals to have access to the nationalized health care coverage is one of the first astro-turfing organization out there, La Raza:
"The National Council of La Raza launched its own 'flood their voice mail' campaign last week to put pressure on Mr. Baucus to expand coverage in his proposal to include all legal immigrants and to drop verification language in the legislation that would prevent illegal immigrants from obtaining coverage."
Of course, with nationalization (and, ultimately, unionization) of the entire health care industry and the inclusion of 11 million or so illegal aliens under a Democrat-imposed bill, the Democrats are aiming to be the party in power for generations to come.
