Rasmussen poll shows 83 percent want proof of citizenship for health care

A new Rasmussen poll shows 83 percent of Americans feel people should prove they are U.S. citizens before they receive government health care subsidies.

According to Rasmussen’s latest telephone survey found that just 12 percent disagree while five percent were not sure.

The desire to limit health care benefits to U.S. citizens broke party lines. The report stated that 95 percent of Republicans, 70 percent of Democrats and 87 percent of unaffiliated voters favored the need for the government to check citizenship status.

In a recent report from Congressional Research Service (CRS) HR 3200 does not include immigration status. “Some have expressed a concern that since HR 3200 does not contain a mechanism to verify immigration status, the prohibitions on certain non-citizens (e.g., non-immigrant and unauthorized aliens) receiving the credits may not be enforced.”

It is unclear which health care reform bill will move forward through both houses and finally into the Oval office. What is clear, however, is Americans strongly do not those here illegally to get subsidies for health care.
