Medicaid ID Requirements a First Step

Under a new law set to begin June 30, 2006, recipients of Medicaid are going to be required to show proof of citizenship in order to receive benefits. This is a very good first step toward shoring up sovereignty. And, it is a model that all government services should require before doling out of the public trough.

With alien immigration out-of-control, it is essential that government make serious efforts to ensure that illegal aliens are not stealing the public treasury.

Naturally there are those who are whining that citizens are going to be denied their rightful benefits. That is highly unlikely, but it is possible that some people will have to make some effort to prove their citizenship. So be it for the greater good.
