REPORT: 125,000 Illegal Immigrants Qualify For Medicaid In California Thanks To Obama Executive Order…
Over 80 California hospitals have gone bankrupt due to the cost of treating illegal immigrants. Now Obama is pushing California over the edge just a little bit more with his executive order that helps even more illegals to qualify for free medicaid. It’s a dumb move since California has the most Obamacare sign-ups. When all the hospitals close for treating all the people for free will Obama and his cronies even get it?
I could have sworn Obama promised this wouldn’t happen.
Via LA Times: A new report shows that as many as 125,000 young California immigrants may qualify for an expansion of Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program. The Affordable Care Act bars insurance subsidies and enrollment in the Medicaid expansion for undocumented immigrants, but a wrinkle in California rules does offer coverage for those with “deferred action status.” The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was created by President Obama in 2012 to grant immigrants who came to the country illegally as children – sometimes called Dreamers – legal status and work authorization for two-year periods. Laurel Lucia, a policy analyst at the UC Berkeley Labor Center and author of the report released Tuesday, said California is one of the few states that lets youth with deferred action status enroll in Medicaid. “But the word still hasn’t been spread,” she said. The report found that 154,000 people in California had been granted the status as of December 2013. About 81%, or 125,000, are eligible for Medi-Cal based on their annual income, which has to be less than $15,850 for an individual. To be eligible for deferred action, immigrants had to arrive in the U.S. before they were 16, be under 31 as of June 2012 and to have continuously lived in the U.S. since 2007.
Obama gets to play with peoples lives without ever feeling the repercussions of his idiotic decisions. I live in California and well… Obama just sucks!
