A health clinic in this blue-collar city north of Oakland, partly funded by the county, is saving local hospitals thousands of dollars in emergency-room visits by treating uninsured patients who suffer only non-urgent ailments.
A watchdog group (WTF? Were the Nazis a "watchdog group" trying to watch out for abuses of Jewish power now? Trying to get people killed, even if it saves you money, is not what "watchdog groups" are supposed to do) is now calling on county officials to cut funding for clinic patients who can't prove they are in the U.S. legally, a debate certain to surface in the national health-care overhaul.
