Rather astonishing (or maybe not) — but all 10 Democratic candidates who debated on Thursday evening in Miami, Florida, during the live event that aired on NBC and MSNBC said they support taxpayer-funded health coverage for people who are in this country illegally.
The president himself took note and sent out the following tweet about it:
All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare. How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!

Among the Democratic primary debaters on Thursday night were former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Sen. Kirstin Gillibrand (D-N.Y.).
Check out the very telling video clip (a few lines below) of the show of hands by the candidates on this issue on Thursday night.
Naturally, most people sitting in the debate audience clapped and cheered when these Democrats raised their hands.
Every single Democrat says their government run healthcare plan will cover illegal aliens

One thing is clear, identity politics have diluted the Democrat party to flimsy illogical and impractical talking point policies delivered by unimpressive people to sell them. #DemDebate2 #VoteTrump if you like #winning

“It’s beyond extreme,” noted Steve Guest of the Republican National Committee in an emailed message on Thursday night.
“And there’s no way the American people are going to support it.”
