The money the people that run Rl CAmino Hospital are way out of line. This is not a nonprofit business. Give some of that over the top saleries back and work with that money and stop dipping in 2 ways to get way too much money in your pockets. You are nothing but gansters. This has to stop and then they need more people over the decission at this hospital. You all have enough to retire for the next 30 years and live like kings and queens. Lets get the peoples health first in our list of priorites. Stop spending money on buying more property and hospitals. Keep the money here in Mountain View. It was a good thing back in the 50's. Lets bet back to the basics. Health care for all the people here in our area. ivK42

Great, more $$$ for illegals, the church is behind this.

If the church is behind this, and they are also against gay marriage, then where is the outrage from the Left akin to what they are laying on the Chick-Fil-A issue?

Yeah, I thought so. There are just too many slippery slopes in Mountain View.

The Left is dead in this country. The pioneers of the labor movement would've identified illegal immigrants as what they are: imported scab labor used to drive wages down.

The jobs the 1% can't offshore to slave labor overseas will go to those who are willing to take the lowest wages: illegals. That's why Cesar Chavez opposed illegal immigration.
