Any immigration package in which current illegal immigrants are made eligible for ObamaCare in the form of either exchanges or Medicaid could increase costs to the federal government by between $120 billion to $200 billion in its first decade, according to internal calculations by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee that were obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller.
GOP Senate Budget Committee staffers explained to TheDC that the estimates assume that the laws provision capping total spending on exchange subsidies, which is set to begin in 2019, is enforced.
However, should the provision fall by the wayside, as some analysts believe it could, the staffers estimate the cost of Obamacare could increase between $210 billion to $300 billion over the next 10 years.

And increase the commie’s LIV base by a sizable chunk.....
Irreparable damage to America’s traditional economy is 0bama’s goal. The dam is being hastily patched by the few good Americans willing to rescue her, but the pressure continues to build..
That sounds like a lowball estimate to me.
How about all the ADDITIONAL immigrants who’d come flooding across the border in response to all those free gifts?
And how about all the extra gubbermint workers they’d have to hire to HANDLE all those extra immigrants?
And how about all those free training courses to instruct healthcare workers how to press 2 and speak Español?
And how about all the extra doctors they’ll have to import from India?
I guess I’m missing something, nothing unusual about that but if criminal Mexicans are already receiving free health care, mostly through E.R.s, which, by law cannot refuse them, how will it cost more to be covered by obamacare, where they would be seeing doctors in the doctor’s offices?
Don’t get me wrong, I do not believe that any criminal Mexican should receive one thin dime in benefits of any sort from the tax payers and all, without any exception, should be sent packing back to their third world hell holes.
Note to Americans...
Illegal aliens will eligible for the benefits they clearly did not pay into, this is the plan.
You get taxed to pay for for their healthcare, get it?
It’s another bureaucracy created to move money from the private sector to move through unionized Government workers to give to the poor.
