You remember how that worked out, right?
Well, we’ve got another ObamaCare lie to deal with now, and it’s about to raise the already enormous price of the President’s totalitarian effort to impose his will on the American people.
Here’s a snip from the left leaning Politico, an article on “Undocumented immigrants .”
Undocumented immigrants won’t get Obamacare – but Latino coverage could rise
President Barack Obama’s immigration order won’t suddenly swell the rolls of Obamacare with undocumented immigrants, but it will open the door to many more Latinos getting health insurance.
Got that? No ObamaCare for illegals.
Well, that may not be the case .
The California Senate’s Appropriations Committee passed SB 4 to give health care to all illegal/undocumented aliens. Breitbart News estimates that based on the non-partisan Legislative Analyst’s Office projections, SB 4 will cost at least $1 billion, and the cost will undoubtedly go much higher over time.
California has a $3 billion phony “surplus” in their budget. It’s phony because the state isn’t addressing the $300 billion plus shortfall in their state retirement system, and that’s just for starters.
The Legislature in California is a one party system, Republicans don’t have to show up because Democrats hold 2/3 majorities in both houses so they don’t need Republican votes to do anything they want.
And what they want is to make California a paradise for illegal aliens.
California decided to give driver’s licenses to illegals and they guessed the demand would be modest. Turns out almost half of all driver’s licenses issued in the state are going to illegals and the MVD offices have been swamped.
You can just guess how demand will explode for “free” health insurance.
The only benefit I can see to this is that hopefully the illegal aliens in Arizona will take the hint and move to more friendly climates in California. We’ll provide bus fare to the San Francisco bay area, the weather there is much nicer this time of year.
