Amnesty plus Obamacare = fiscal nightmare

Remember when politicians in Washington promised that American jobs was their top priority?

Hah.

Today, pols on both sides of the aisle have made illegal alien amnesty their Job Number One of 2013 — and with it, the ever-expanding welfare state. As I pointed out earlier this morning, the Obama administration continues to defy federal immigration statutes barring benefits for immigrants and is aggressively pushing food stamps among the non-citizen population.

Then there’s the daunting impact of amnesty on the already-disastrous Obamacare regime.

Via The Hill:

Comprehensive immigration reform could make millions of people suddenly eligible for assistance under President Obama’s healthcare law, assuming a final deal paves the way for undocumented immigrants to receive papers.

…”We have to figure out a way in which [undocumented immigrants] incorporate themselves into the larger workforce, and into our society in general, and not be a burden,” said Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), a leader in the immigration debate.
“Do we want them to go to the exchanges? Absolutely we do — if and when they don’t have healthcare through their employer,” he said.

…If nothing changes, undocumented immigrants will be a major share of the uninsured, second only to those who are eligible but do not apply for coverage under the healthcare law in 2014, according to the Urban Institute.

…”I think hospitals and healthcare providers would see it as a huge plus,” Grijalva said, referring to an immigration policy that legalizes undocumented people and makes them eligible for federal benefits.

…Looking ahead, it is possible that immigration changes could upend the law’s cost picture, which is already of major concern to critics.
