Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday, took a break from attacking President Donald Trump this week.
At the top of Wallace’s list was the fact that every Democrat candidate in Thursday’s debate said that they would give healthcare to undocumented immigrants.

“Every person on that stage, all ten of them said that they would provide health insurance coverage for people in this country illegally either under ObamaCare or Medicare for all, whichever they supported.
“No talk about preconditions, you have to be working in this country, you have to be paid in taxes, the basic point was, you are in this country legally or illegally you get health insurance coverage paid,” he said.
It was then that Perez began to do a dance that he did for the entire segment, avoiding tough questions and not giving straight answers.
“And its insurance program, there to pay into it. Immigrants including undocumented pay billions of dollars in taxes.
“And that’s the reality. And what Democrats also said which is far different from the Republicans, if we have a pre-existing condition, you should be able to keep her coverage.
Are Democrats scammers?

“Democrats believe that healthcare should be available, affordable quality healthcare should be available to everyone and thanks to Obama, LBJ, Medicare and Medicaid where 90% of the way there.
“We are having a discussion about how to get the final. Chris: We are talking about whether or not people in the country illegally should get government benefits.
Wallace then played a video from 2009 when former President Obama promised that undocumented immigrants would not be covered by ObamaCare
“Those who claim that the reform efforts would it reinsure illegal immigrants. This too is false, former President Obama said.
“Republican congressman Joe Wilson was called out and quite rightfully so for shouting out in a speech to a joint session of Congress, ‘you lie,’
“The fact is, ten years later Joe Wilson is right, about where the Democrats are now,” Wallace said to Perez.
“Democrats believe you should be able to buy into a new health insurance. Were in a different era. What we’re doing right now is the right thing to do,” he said.
And there is the point. Democrats start small and then make more major changes after they get the building blocks.
Wallace asked Perez “Why is it a different era from 2009?” but Perez again did not answer the question in a direct fashion.
“I live in a community where if you’re pregnant woman in your undocumented, we provide you with access to healthcare because we believe that having good prenatal care is an essential healthcare issue.
“It is an essential issue of economics and in its essential issue of morality. The party of Lincoln is dead, and one of the things that died with compassion.
“This is not hand out, this is allowing people to buy into an insurance program. People who pay billions of dollars in taxes, again I think that is often left upright,” he said.
