Hillary Talks Obamacare For Thousands of Undocumented Illegals
Hillary Clinton, her path to the Democratic nomination all but secured, is now speaking out about more of her liberal agenda that she hopes to put in place if she is elected as president. Among her political talking points is an issue with undocumented immigrants that promises to bankrupt America.
Hillary Clinton, you see, wants to allow thousands of undocumented illegals access to Obamacare. In interviews Monday, Clinton stood up for her position that illegal immigrants deserve access to the same government-subsidized healthcare exchanges that millions of Americans are now forced to use.
But Hillary used a fake, unlikely possibility to help explain her position.
"If someone can afford to pay for an insurance policy off the exchanges that were set up under the Affordable Care Act, I support that," she said. She went on to say that illegal immigrants who can afford to pay for their healthcare should be able to use the Obamacare insurance "marketplaces" and purchase coverage.
That argument, however, doesn't take into account the fact that illegal immigrants are often poor and not well-to-do. That means that they won't be able to afford to purchase insurance for themselves and their families on the Obamacare exchanges.
There aren't any numbers, but it's absolutely improbable that any of the illegal immigrants who want access to healthcare will be paying for it themselves.
And that means that the Obamacare subsidies would be used to help support illegal immigrants as they pay for healthcare.
Right now, under Obamacare's current rules and laws, illegal immigrants are barred from receiving or using government subsidies for healthcare. But it's clear that Hillary wants to change all that.
"What I do want to see is that we have more options for undocumented people to be able to get the health care they need," Hillary stated.
Well, Hillary. Maybe once these immigrants start coming into the country legally and with proof of work we can start helping them out. As it is, this is going to bankrupt America.
