Obamacare Won’t Cover Illegals, Because It Won’t Have To

It’s a well-known fact that if you legalize things that are currently illegal, you can trumpet to the masses that you’ve made the crime rate drop dramatically without technically lying. Eventually though, the masses might notice that those “problems” not only still exist, but have gotten worse.

The first part is exactly what’s going on with Obamacare.

When Joe Wilson yelled “You lie” during Obama’s speech to Congress, Wilson was speaking the truth at the time, but now Obama’s people and his willing accomplices in the Obamastream Media are saying Wilson lied, because the bill will exclude illegals from getting coverage.

Why won’t Obamacare cover illegals? Because the illegals will be made legal so they can get coverage:

“Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don’t simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken,” Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. “That’s why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else.

Mr. Obama added, “If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all.”

“Voila! You lie, Joe Wilson!”

In other words, Obama and Congress want to legalize illegals. In doing so, that’s 12 million more people the government has power over, and 12 million more people who can legally vote for Democrats (Now that people are catching on to ACORN, another avenue must be found to get bogus votes).

So no, illegals will not be covered by Obamacare, because no such thing will exist.

In a simpler time with a government that gave a damn about national security, Uncle Sam would have announced that illegals need to step forward to be legalized and get their free health care. Then, after they all showed up, they’d be deported. That’s how you find them, Senator McCain!

What an insult to those who have worked hard and taken the time to come to the U.S. legally, and what a dangerous precedent to set for both national security as well as encouraging an increase of the flow of people entering the country illegally in order to be legalized to get their free health care and welfare.

I didn’t like insta-amnesty when Bush & Company were for it, and I don’t like it now.
