Illegal Aliens and Obamacare

Illegal Aliens and Obamacare

I would like to address a few of the many issues within illegal immigration and Obamacare – and share with you a thought provoking question that absolutely no one is addressing nor discussing.

As the nation watches the disastrous Obamacare roll out… which illegal aliens are not subject to pay into … millions of Americans find themselves losing coverage. They see their premiums and deductible rising at a time when many are already financially strapped.

We see an Administration stumbling along in pitifully fashion trying to undo the damage and instead of stepping up to the plate – in Presidential fashion – Obama refuses to do so, instead aggressively attempting to minimize the squalls of Obamacare by changing the narrative to that of Comprehensive Immigration Reform/Amnesty – even hiring an illegal alien as a navigator – which is currently against the law – making many wonder about the security of the system – which we now know is also severely lacking.

As we continue to hear about the 30-40 million uninsured individuals – it is as clear as mud if illegal aliens are included in this number. With that said – whether included or not – illegal aliens are receiving healthcare either thru the EMTALA Act in our emergency rooms or yet again ‘illegally’ thru lack of scrutiny which does impact each and every one of us.

While we hear the plights of everyday Americans and Obamacare – what you are not hearing are the cost to the American Taxpayers (those who are supposedly going to fund Obamacare) due to illegal immigration in the United States.

For example… while our elderly are concerned, many very much so with the future of elder care and prescription costs – we read this….The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) spent nearly $29 million for prescription drugs for 4,139 illegal aliens per the Department of Health & Human Services. And do not overlook that the Inspector General stated that in January that CMS had also paid $91.6 million for 2,600 illegal aliens to health care providers.

While Doctor shortages are being forecast, we learn that hospitals are struggling with non reimbursement of care for illegal aliens we read this from Kaiser Health News  “Federal law generally bars illegal immigrants from being covered by Medicaid.  But a little-known part of the state-federal health insurance program for the poor has long paid about $2 billion a year for emergency treatment for a group of patients who, according to hospitals, mostly comprise illegal immigrants.”

While Americans – and a few politicians – demand that the Affordable Care Act be defunded or repealed, we see those who are in the Country illegally making a commercial or standing in our streets DEMANDING healthcare at our expense. We see a previously deported – only to return again – single Mother of (9) U.S. born children – utilizing healthcare

The current comprehensive bill in the Senate (there is nothing comprehensive about it) is approximately 1200 page in length – and like the Affordable Care Act – this Administration and those we elected to represent us can have no idea what is included in these outrageous number of pages. Many are aware however, that it does call for a Family Unity Plan (with slight changes from one version or another) that will further reward those ILLEGALLY residing in the Country to be united HERE with their immediate family members – which will add to the sheer number of the demands for and devastation of…. our healthcare.

Here is the thought provoking question………… No matter where you fall on this issue – let me ask you this………..

“If all you need to do is successfully with full premeditation enter the United States illegally to receive free and what used to be quality healthcare … how many additional millions our planning their trip to demand their share of our healthcare and what will that do to our premiums and Country?”
