    I know that is per facility. My question still stands.

    I also respectfully disagree with your assessment of the vote. Hospitals are required by law to treat whoever walks in the door-no green card check. Hospitalls were still going to required to treat illegal aliens regardless of this legislation. This legislation compensated hospitals for having to treat people the government was afraid to deal with.

    It was pro-hospital legislation, not pro-illegal alien.

    Those are semantics given the strident nature of the anti illegal immigrant groups.

    Those are hardly semantics. As I said, I respectfully disagree.

    What is that your newest word from your "word a day" calendar?

    Everything the past month has been about semantics with you lately. Perhaps you ought to look up the meaning of the word.

    Given the distressed financial nature of any of a number of hospitals even in good times, especially with the incredible amount of money many spend on caring for the uninsured, and in many areas the number of illegal immigrants - which the government REQUIRES them to treat, shouldn't the government throw them a bone to help offset some of the costs?

    I eagerly await your typical nonanswer.
