California - 'Obamacare' for illegal aliens

Everyone loves sucking on the public teat.

Free Shit For Everyone
  • Now Marxist Democrats want to "spread the wealth around" by giving Obamacare to people who broke our laws and came here illegally.
  • Democrats abandon American citizens of all ethnic backgrounds in an insane rush to give jobs and tax dollars to the citizens of foreign nations.

A Leftist Democrat California bill would extend health coverage to illegal immigrants, using an Obamacare-style program to assist those left uncovered by the health care reform law.

Kaiser Health News reported that the legislation, introduced by state Sen. Ricardo Lara, a Democrat, would use state dollars to pay for Medicaid coverage for low-income residents who are in the state illegally. No federal funding would be used.

It would also establish an online marketplace where undocumented immigrants with higher incomes could buy private insurance reports TPM News.

Up to 2.6 million illegal immigrants live in California, where they can currently receive emergency medical care and pregnancy care. About 1 million of them are estimated to be uninsured, according to KHN.

“While we’ve made enormous strides to reduce California’s uninsured population with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, we won’t have a truly healthy state until everyone has access to quality, affordable coverage,” Lara said in a statement.

Anti-illegal immigration groups blasted the bill, which attracted 16 co-sponsors in the state senate, KHN reported.

“There isn’t anything [the California legislature] is not going to give people who are in the country illegally," said, Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
