California lawmakers try to extend ObamaCare to illegal immigrants

June 7, 2016

California is on the brink of becoming the first state in the nation to offer illegal immigrants the chance to buy insurance on an ObamaCare exchange — testing what’s being described as a “loophole” in the law.

The Affordable Care Act technically bars illegal immigrants from the insurance exchanges.

But the California bill, which last week passed the state legislature and was sent to Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk, would allow the state to apply for a federal waiver to open its exchange — Covered California — to undocumented residents.

There’s no guarantee that will happen. Brown first would have to sign the bill and the Obama administration then would have to green-light the waiver. Even if that is granted, it wouldn’t necessarily give illegal immigrants access to insurance subsidies.

Critics, though, say it’s a slippery slope and yet another example of how the federal government has hoodwinked Americans into getting behind the Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare.

    if Californians are willing to take it up the butt to pay for “ILLEGAL” aliens’ health care…that is on them… what a bunch of dumba$$e$…Like anywhere else, the liberals are a minority preying on the majority because the “silent majority” doesn’t have the nads to stand up and fight this BS. What part of “illegal” do these people not understand?.

    Once again california shows that it is “high” on drugs, or has some other mental handicap! They are all crazy out there!

    Once again California tries to come up with another costly program for its citizens. If the people of California want to subsidize the health care of illegals, that is their business. Neither the federal government nor U.S. taxpayers should be forced to pay for insurance for those in this country illegally.

    This should surprise nobody. This has been the plan all along to make sure that illegal immigrants get taken care of by uncle sugar. The leeches need to ALL be sent back. Any state that pulls this cr@p needs to lose 100% of federal funding.
