IT'S NOT UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE; IT'S ME-NIVERSAL...:

Massachusetts Cuts Back Immigrants’ Health Care (ABBY GOODNOUGH, 9/01/09, NY Times)

State-subsidized health insurance for 31,000 legal immigrants here will no longer cover dental, hospice or skilled-nursing care under a scaled-back plan that Gov. Deval Patrick announced Monday.

Mr. Patrick said his administration had struggled to find a solution “that preserves the promise of health care reform” after the state legislature cut most of the $130 million it had previously allotted immigrants, to help close a budget deficit.


Way to gut the only moral argument for health reform.
