Big Steve is sad. His feelings are hurt. Look:
I lived there for 30 years. It used to be great, and now it's a shit hole which caters to illegal scumbag aliens. This will only be exacerbated by this latest legislation because, as the only State to offer health coverage to illegal scumbags, it will become a magnet for them.
He is also a bigot judging from his childish insistence on referring to anyone he dislikes calling them names. I remember lots of kids did this in fifth grade. Adults, not so much.
But the problem with people who adopt his childish tactics is that they bury any message or point they might have in their own bullshit. I totally get that Big Steve believes that a child who was brought to this country at age two and raised here as a citizen and completing a teaching degree with the goal of teaching our children is a "scumbag vermin". You and I might disagree with him particularly when we compare this fine young person to a 5th generation Alabama white man in a white sheet. But this is not a distinction he appears willing to make.
Racism (and racism this is ((spare me the 'I don't care if they are from Norway)) is the last bastion of the ignorant. Frankly, really smart people have this figured out already.
There are some big words in Godstud's post but it hits the nail on the head. We in Arizona just recently went down this road with regards to homeless people. The fact is that insuring people is vastly cheaper than treating them after their illness has progressed because they can't afford retail medicine. And we will treat them. We will never turn away a sick baby because his parents are here illegally. But small minded people think that paying for this by essentially taxing everyone is new. It is not. The people he is whining so much for are already footing the bill for these folks.
I will pause for a moment and point out how magnanimous BigSteve is. He is obviously a liberal at heart. He willingly will take my tax money to subsidize his federal flood insurance. He does not know or does not care that not a single insurer in the US provides flood insurance retail so he is going to ask me, a person wise enough not to build in a storm flood zone to fund his folly. But oh poor Big Steve. The awful liberal want us all to have health insurance so we can all be well and we can all save money.
The ignorance on the right is astonishing. But no longer surprising.
