Illinois Democrat Makes Move to Punish The Unvaccinated


State Rep. Jonathan Carroll, an Illinois Democrat who claims the unvaccinated are “clogging up the healthcare system,” has proposed a bill that would force them to pay all of their medical expenses out-of-pocket if they become hospitalized with the coronavirus

The measure coincides with recent news that the average coronavirus hospitalization cost is about $24,000. This data is coming from the government-run Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services

“The vaccine is proven to be the one thing that is stopping the severity of COVID-19, and we are seeing more variants popping up,” said Carroll in a recent interview. “The experts are telling us, ‘This is now becoming a disease of the unvaccinated.’ The people that are choosing to get vaccinated are not the ones that are clogging up the healthcare system, it’s the ones that aren’t.” 

The proposed bill brought by Carroll states that “a person who is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and chooses not to be vaccinated shall pay for health care expenses out-of-pocket if the person becomes hospitalized because of COVID-19 symptoms” — essentially removing the rights of insurance, medicaid and other services to ensure the welfare of patients infected with coronavirus. 

If the bill is passed into law, the proposed changes wouldn’t affect Illinois residents for more than a year, in January 2023. 

Though the bill will likely run into many legal challenges, Carroll recently told the Chicago Sun-Times that it is a “starting point — we’ll see where the conversations go.” 

Illinois State Sen. Dan McConchie, a Republican, has spoken out against the measure, and says he is not in support of taking away proper healthcare of Illinoians.

    This is the normal operating procedure in the People’s Republic of Illinois. Remember that we have Beetlejuice as the Mayor of Chicago, Jabba the Hut as Governor, and all the Gremlins that have eaten after midnight in the House and Senate. The citizens of Illinois are living in a Saturday night horror movie. You will never clean out the garbage. All productive citizens will end up moving out taking their resources with them. The California of the midwest.

    Early treatment is the key to quick recovery from any virus, but the FDA refuses to approve the medications most effective in treating the symptoms of this virus. This virus causes inflammation in the tissues which is why drugs like Ivermectin are so effective. The CDC, The FDA and the media routinely demonize all forms of treatment and activist doctors withhold treatment they know are effective. What is being done is evil and we now see the democrats for what they have always been. They have always hidden behind the protections of the constitution to destroy it.

    An Illinois Rep. just put in a bill to ban discrimination based on vaccine history. I think we all know which bill is most likely to go through though.

    Lies!

    It’s not a “disease of the unvaccinated”

    The infuriating thing is that leaders are leading based on a fairy tale of reality rather than.., effing REALITY.

    And they don’t care, refuse to learn. We need to have potential leaders pass a reality comprehension test before they’re allowed to run. Except.., how do you make sure the people giving the test aren’t employed by Google and other brain damaged ideologues?

    Ugh. What an A hole! I bet he dreams with an Australian accent, mate.

    This is seriously jacked up. They basically want you to give up your healthcare benefits because you didn’t get the fauci ouchie.

    The disease of the unvaccinated? What about Israel and the UK?
    People clogging up healthcare system are the same people that are always there…the sick. Usually with additional chronic illnesses combined with age. What empathy and compassion.
    You have shown us who you REALLY are, and we SHALL remember…

    Geez didn’t we pass some law “we have to pass it to know what’s in it” Obamacare that specifically states that pre-existing conditions cannot be used to deny coverage? Or are democrats looking to roll back Obamacare now?

    I was about to make my own comment stating as much about diabetics and other “at-risk” categories, then I saw someone beat me too it.

  11. DrVinnyBoombatz says:

    What if you only had 2 vaccine shots but no booster, do you have to pay 1/3 of your expenses or would it now be 50% since maybe we need 2 boosters.

  12. Plaguen says:

    Does this also include diabetics that eat too much sugar or overweight people who have an unhealthy lifestyle or how about smokers, alcoholics, or people into extreme sports. God, these people are evil.
