Good News: Amnesty Key To Making “Affordable” Care Act Work

I doubt that this will become a regular talking point for Democrats, but I also bet that they all thinking this

(Washington Times) Rep. Jared Polis said Friday the key problem with health care right now is that illegal immigrants aren’t included in Obamacare, and said part of the solution is to pass a bill granting them citizenship rights.

The House is debating a GOP-written bill that would allow Americans to keep their health plans that have been canceled under Obamacare, but Mr. Polis, a Colorado Democrat, said the chamber should instead be looking at ways to make sure everyone in the country is covered by the Affordable Care Act – including illegal immigrants.

“American citizens are essentially being forced to pay for the health care costs of people who are here illegally every day, until we pass comprehensive immigration reform,” he said. “We’re wondering why rates are going up. … It’s no surprise. When somebody doesn’t have insurance, their costs are shifted onto other people that do.” (snip)

But Mr. Polis said leaving (illegal aliens) outside of the health mandate means that they end up using emergency care, but don’t end up paying their own bills – leaving the rest of the country to pick up those costs.

Here’s an idea: instead of legalizing, them, kick them out. Sure, there are tiny percentage who we might want to offer a pathway, a true pathway, not straight legalization or a phony pathway, but most need to leave, both those who jumped the border and those who have overstayed their visas.

Dems want to pass their shamnesty bill, but they would need to get the illegals their green cards prior to being able to enroll them in O-care. And we all know that the minute the Senate bill would be passed Dems would push to move past all the obstacles in the bill to get to the green cards.
