House Republicans to Undocumented Residents: Drop Dead

House Republicans are promoting a provision in the immigration bill that will demand, on the penalty of deportation, that undocumented individuals pay for their own healthcare through privately purchased health insurance. They would be required to reimburse hospitals, and presumably also be refused treatment at federally-funded community health centers.
In sum, mandatory health insurance, privately paid for, for 11 millions people who can afford it least.
