Sebelius Says Amnesty Needed to Increase ObamaCare Enrollment
Big Government ^ | 8/23/2013

Posted on 08/24/2013 7:46:26 AM PDT by markomalley

Speaking Thursday at an event in Philadelphia, hosted by a Latino community service group, Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Kathleen Sebelius revealed that the success of ObamaCare is dependent upon the passage of comprehensive immigration reform and amnesty.

Susan Jones at CNS News reported Friday that, when asked if the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) will help “undocumented individuals,” Sebelius responded that it would not, and that this is the reason why immigration reform is so important.

"Well, the (Obamacare) bill is crafted in such a way that those who are undocumented will not have access to the tax credits or shopping in the (health insurance) marketplace,” Sebelius told Latinos at an event sponsored by Congreso. “That has been limited, which is, frankly, why -- another very keen reason why we need comprehensive immigration reform."

Sebelius went on to say, “Unfortunately, you can’t fix – we won’t fix the immigration system, unfortunately, through the health care bill, but I think having the immigration bill that passed the Senate, pass the House, would be a huge step.”

I guess Obama’s cabal doesn’t believe they can collect enough money from the citizens they are forcing to enroll,,now they need to pretend that more “payors” will make the system better.

I pray that doesn’t happen.

So what she is saying is, to make communism work in this country, we’ve got to bring in a bunch of freeloading foreigners? What about the majority of Americans who don’t want ObamaCare to be a “success”? This is just more “IN YOUR FACE AMERICA!” crap for the morons in the Obama regime.

That will make for fewer available doctors,
less money for the system, longer wait times to be seen,
more very sick people at the emergency rooms
and some with incurable communicable diseases,
and gouts of illegals taping out more benefits
from the collapsing tax system.

Is that really what it takes for ‘mission accomplished’?

DemocRATS hate the free marketplace of ideas and capitalism. PERIOD. They have won control of the Fed Gov (forget the spineless Boner) and are completing their TRANSFORMATION - 2013-2016 will shock you all. On Jan 21, 2017 when Hitlery (D) or Krispy Creme (D) are sworn in you will not even recognize this once great and proud America leader of the world.

Sebelius Says Amnesty Needed to Increase ObamaCare Enrollment

Another "mental giant" from the Baraqqi 0bama Regime speaks.

Note to Sebelius - those receiving amnesty might increase 0bamacare enrollment numbers, but THEY WON'T BE FOOTING THE BILLS, THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS WILL!

Sure... Why not, just crash the whole thing even faster and harder. There’s nothing like more out-go than in-come to cause a Business, Family budget or Government to go belly-up and just die.

If she believes a single word of that, she's stupid, utterly dishonest, or both.

They will be recipients not payers. The real payers will be the taxpayers. Half of the illegal aliens lack even a high school degree. They will qualify for all kinds of welfare programs and EITC.

Any government plan, a ‘scheme’ really, that necessitates the government break its own laws is patently flawed and thus illegal on its face.

The left wants open borders to get more enrolled in Obamacare, more people on food stamps, and more voters to vote Democrat. It’s obvious, effective and may well work.

“Illegal aliens aren’t going to fund anything.”

That’s right; twenty years ago we were told we need them to keep Social Security solvent (and enough people nearing retirement bought that BS). Now their healthcare $$$ are being directed to the illegals (remember “You lie!”?); hope it was worth it...

No, it depends on the definition of "success"

I don’t think even Sebelius is stupid enough to believe this will work. She’s just evil.
