Obama Regime Feels “Incredibly Strongly” About Breaking Promise by Providing Taxpayer-Financed Benefits to Illegal Aliens Through ObamaCare

In 2009, after Obama proclaimed to a joint session of Congress that illegal aliens would not be eligible for taxpayer-financed benefits through ObamaCare, Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) was put through the wringer by the media for observing that this was a lie. Even though he has already been repeatedly vindicated, now is a good time for another fact check on Rep. Wilson’s allegation:

On November 11, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell [who is in charge of administering ObamaCare] participated in an online chat with a group of Latino bloggers. Burwell was asked a two-part question. Would the young immigrants known as Dreamers be eligible for Obamacare subsidies, and can so-called mixed families — for example, a family with illegal parents and legal children — receive benefits?

Dreamers are not eligible, Burwell said. But she left no doubt that she — along with officials at the highest levels of the Obama administration — wants that to change. “I think that everyone probably knows that this administration feels incredibly strongly about the fact we need to fix that,” Burwell explained. “We need to reform the system and make the changes that we need that will lead to benefits in everything from healthcare to economics to so many things — a very important step that we need to take as a nation.”

Burwell went on to tell the bloggers that families with illegal members are welcome to receive benefits. “Mixed families should come, they should seek and try, go on the site, they’ll find out they can get financial assistance,” Burwell said. “They may be eligible for different programs for their children or themselves.”

Finally, Burwell stressed that no one in the government will ask applicants if they are here legally or not. “Everyone should come on, and folks should not be scared,” Burwell said. “No questions will be asked…”

Attention world! Free healthcare! Come one, come all!

We are witnessing a looting spree. Obama and his treasonous collaborators have turned America into the Third World’s Ferguson.
