Think Illegal Aliens Aren’t Getting Obamacare? Think Again 5.00/5 (100.00%) 2 votes

Obama is currently promising that illegal aliens will not be eligible for Obamacare.  That should be your first warning.  The second warning was in a little publicized statement during  her promotion of Obamacare.  In her statement, Sylvia Burwell said that we need to add DACA (Dreamers) to Obamacare, a position being advanced by La Raza and the AFL-CIO.  What most people aren’t aware of is the fact that the secretary of the Health and Human Resources department (HHS) has the power to add them herself through regulation. 

Something few people ever talk about in the Obamacare bill is that it gives wide ranging power to an unelected official to set rules through regulation that become law as far as the program is concerned.  The bill does allow for the congress to overrule her, but only with a 67% super majority.  Think I’m wrong?  Do you remember the employer contraceptive mandate?  That did not happen as a result of a bill from congress or an executive order from Obama, but by decree courtesy, of Kathleen Sebelius. 

It’s no accident that Burwell brought this up at a venue, where she urged states to expand Medicaid coverage.  Indeed, most Dreamers would be eligible for totally free Medicaid coverage that includes dental and eyeglasses which retired taxpayers are not given as part of their Medicare coverage and they paid for it.  Burwell can simply mandate that these Dreamers are in fact legal due to the deferred status of Obama’s DACA Executive Order.  The3 only way to stop it would be to cut off funding (too late, Boehner gave away the store) or by act of congress by a 2/3s majority and the signature of Obama.  Does anyone see that happening? 

There are between 800,000 and 1,200,000 Dreamers who would be eligible immediately.  Once they are firmly within the fold, Obama will throw in the new five million he is granting amnesty to.  The argument will be made that these illegals are paying taxes and therefore, they should be eligible for Obamacare just like they will be eligible for Social Security benefits. 

Put nothing past King Barry the First.
