Democrats introduce bill to cover illegal immigrants under Obamacare

Gross public debt, Democrats control spending in 2007

This is from the Daily Signal.


The pope’s reminder of the Golden Rule during his visit to Congress inspired a House Democrat to introduce legislation to expand the Affordable Care Act.

Last week Rep. Luis Gutiérrez, D-Ill., introduced new legislation called the Exchange Inclusion for a Healthy America Act of 2015, which would allow illegal immigrants health care coverage under Obamacare.

[…]“The goal is to cover everyone in this country, regardless of immigration status, provided they establish state residency and file taxes (which most immigrants already do),” states the congressman’s Facebook page. “We have to make sure it’s accessible to everyone living here.”

[…]The bill proposed by Gutiérrez and co-sponsor Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., would amend Obamacare to permit illegal immigrants to purchase health insurance through Obamacare exchanges (also termed health insurance marketplaces) and receive coverage subsidies.

Wow! Is there no limit to this view on the left that the people who earn money don’t really have a right to spend it on the things they want to spend it on. I will never understand how it is that Democrats feel that they are being nice by spending other people’s money. If they wanted to hand out free goodies to some group of people, why don’t they use their own money? I need my money for the stuff I want to do. I guess they don’t see me as very important, except as a cog in their vote-buying machine.
