A new memo from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service confirms that under the new health law, American citizens are forced to either buy expensive insurance, or get taxed, while illegal immigrants may still receive free health care in hospital emergency departments.

Unfortunately, low-income immigrants get a subsidy and choice, but low-income American citizens only get access to Medicaid – a substandard government health program that yields lower health outcomes for patients.
