Because the US simply isn’t broke enough!
Now the loons want US taxpayers to pay for illegal immigrants and their health care. Why are Democrats so pro-criminal? We have legal residents and legal immigrants in the US that can’t afford health care and some of it is due to the ACA law. We have US Veterans that are constantly being screwed by the government and not given the health care they deserve and earned.
Yet some Democrats believe taxpayers should pick up the bill:
Congress’s most vocal immigration reformer introduced legislation Wednesday that would extend ObamaCare to the millions of people who are in the country illegally.
Rep. Luis Gutiérrez said his bill serves both a moral and economic purpose. Invoking the recent visit of Pope Francis, the Illinois Democrat said expanding the law’s health benefits would help the nation’s most vulnerable.
“Doing unto others as you would have them do unto you means moving forward with no restrictions on which brother and sister and neighbor we think of as ‘eligible’ or ‘deserving,’ ” Gutiérrez said on the House floor.
So the ACA supposedly bans illegal immigrants, who are living inside the US illegally, from receiving Obamacare benefits yet Gutierrez wants to disobey the law that his party didn’t read/understand so criminals are rewarded health care? That is dangerous liberal logic.
The United States has around $18.2 Trillion of debt (reported by Obama’s Treasury Dept.) and unfunded liabilities of over 98,598,506,000,000. What’s a few trillion more upon the backs of the American taxpayers? Didn’t our current president say the past president should be ashamed about putting this debt on the backs of our children?
of course he was just being a mouthy campaigner who lied his way into office.
Don’t get me wrong, Republicans are part of the problem as well, but Democrats seem hell-bent on spending everything on their beloved welfare programs despite our financial situation. What I find amusing is how these idiots, like Gutierrza plan on paying for illegal immigrants when the law hasn’t been fully implemented yet (EMPLOYER MANDATE IS COMING in 2016).
Not to mention how only 17 million (Obama’s made up number because he includes Medicaid in the enrollment numbers) have been forced into Obamacare because of Obama’s lousy economy. Who knew that higher poverty creates more people applying for Medicaid? Anyone with an understanding of economics understands this.
The ACA/Obamacare scam has failed by it’s own numbers. Obama and his team of morons claimed the law would give 50 million uninsured Americans access immediately while pushing the laws full implementation back until 2016. For those who are weak in math, let me explain my thoughts to you: 50 million – 17 million still leave 33 million without insurance. Then figure in the millions who lost their insurance due to the ACA law changing their policies
Wouldn’t want those :”stupid (Obama) voters” to figure out the truth as MIT Prof. Gruber so infamously pointed out. It was all a lie passed by idiots who didn’t read it nor did they understand it. But they all knew it was a lie.
