Why should law abiding American citizens have to suffer paying high insurance premiums and outrageous deductibles that practically make their policies worthless? Maybe we should extend Obamacare to illegal aliens too. You know, allow them to come out of the shadows and participate in our disgust and misery. Rep. Luis Gutierrez , the third worlds congressman, is advocating for just that.
Enacted in 2010, President Obama's healthcare reform law explicitly bars illegal immigrants from enrolling in its health insurance exchanges.
Gutiérrez's proposal would reverse that provision, requiring undocumented workers to buy insurance like anyone else.
"It gives them access to the healthcare exchanges in ObamaCare under the ordinary rules of residency in the states in which they live and makes them eligible for subsidies if and when they file taxes — just like the rest of us," Gutiérrez said.
"The goal is to make integration and inclusion real for millions of families that are locked out under current law."
Why in the hell would illegal aliens do that? They already receive Medicaid for anchor babies. If they get hurt, they just show up at the E.R. and dump the bills on the hospitals and the stupid citizenry that allows them to take advantage of the system. Pay taxes? Please.
