California Asks Obama to Welcome Illegal Aliens to ObamaCare

Fortunately for California, the unjustified fear of illegal aliens that they will be deported if they go on ObamaCare is the only thing keeping its Medicaid budget from going up in a puff of smoke.

Unfortunately Covered California is on a mission to do just that and so it’s asking Obama to make a public statement that illegal aliens are free to go on ObamaCare.

Enrollment numbers aren’t in yet, but the Obama administration already knows it has fewer Latinos signed up than it would like.

26.7% of California Latinos are already on Medicaid. Why bother with ObamaCare’s clunky website when you’re already on Medicaid?

One of the reasons they’re not enrolling? People in mixed-immigration status families worry personal information submitted under the Affordable Care Act could be used to deport someone in their family.

Obama’s hyper-tough immigration enforcement has already jumped into action to assure illegal aliens that they can get all the ObamaCare they want without being deported.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has issued a letter assuring people that information submitted as part of applying for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act will not be used for immigration enforcement.

But it’s just not good enough…

But Daniel Zingale, senior vice president with the California Endowment, says this assurance isn’t enough. “I think something from the president himself would be helpful,” he told Victoria Colliver of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Martinez added it would be especially useful to have something in Spanish.

Bloomberg does Spanish statements. Obama can rewrite his teleprompter for some Spanish and make an announcement to all of Mexico.

The White House certainly has motivation to publicize and emphasize these assurances to the Latino population, whose enrollment is considered key to the success of the Affordable Care Act’s rollout. Younger and healthier than the average uninsured American, Latinos would help create a balanced and affordable health insurance pool.

50% Medicaid here we come.

    We were told that illegals would not be eligible for ObamaCare.

    Pundits told us that once ObamaCare was passed that a chorus would rise up to to add illegals to Obamacare.

    And here is the chorus.

    • Joel Wischkaemper

      Obama wants that ACA in place, and he will stomp every promise he made to get it there.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        His promises were made with the stomping in mind.

  • Joel Wischkaemper

    Hooo boy. We fought this battle long and hard. The people said no.. paralyzed the telephone system in Washington saying no, and now we have California back at the same place with a Congress that supports the illegal aliens, has stolen a huge amount of money from the Social Security General Fund, and doesn’t give a hoot about kicking the taxpayers under the bus.

    The President supports us? Not in this life. I am convinced the President dreamed this nightmare bill up to take the illegal aliens out of the emergency room and stop the bankruptcies. Senator Schumer of New York is one of the main people who tried to stick it to the American People, and read the link: it is one of the primary reasons why.

    Hospitals Fear Cuts in Aid for Care to Illegal Immigrants

    President Obama’s health care law is putting new strains on some of the nation’s most hard-pressed hospitals, by cutting aid they use to pay for emergency care for illegal immigrants, which they have long been required to provide.

    California Governor is a big time democrat and he has hooked up with Schumer to find our pocket books.

      That is why sanctuary states & cities, have to be severely punished for aiding another country, to invade our sovereign U.S.

      • Joel Wischkaemper

        I agree. What Obama did was a mistake I think, for his final reputation. I do not believe he has been a good president, and Historians will point at his lack of law enforcement as a major flaw that cannot be tolerated in an American President.

    More socialist benefits, those that have, pay for those that do not!

    • taxedmore

      I think you mean – those that earned and planned and saved, pay for those that do not.

      • Joel Wischkaemper

        And that goes for countries also. Way to many states expect the U.S. to bail them out when they get into trouble. We should NOT be anywhere near that idea, but I believe big business consideration allowed this country to get into a rope a dope with abusers.
        Let the U.N. deal with it, and if that doesn’t work, we don’t need the U.N. anymore.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          Yeah, let the UN send us the consolidated bill.

          Great.

          • Joel Wischkaemper

            Send us ..our share.. of the bill.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      Don’t question the magic. The more people on the plan, the bigger the plan is. That makes it successful. If it fails it’s just because of imperialism and stuff and a sign that more socialism is needed until finally pure communism is achieved. That will be perfect.

  • Terry

    We need more people to put on Obama Care

    How about these people?

    Sooner or later we will run out of money(and the ability to borrow) then there will be no benefits for anyone. Equality at last!

    • objectivefactsmatter

      Nahhhh….

  • objectivefactsmatter

    “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has issued a letter assuring people that information submitted as part of applying for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act will not be used for immigration enforcement.”

    No guarantees about how it will be used, but as long as it’s expedient to keep you here, you will not be deported.

    Truly, America has taken leave of its senses. But, that’s the way Communism works. Then it collapses in on itself due to the inherent bad economic arithmetic of Marxism/Progressivism. The best part is that the initiators of the mess all get to retire on giant federal pensions in Boca Raton while the great unwashed struggles with their forced Social Security.
