Only a rat turd Democrat would think this is a nifty idea.
Rep. Jared Polis said Friday the key problem with health care right now is that illegal immigrants aren’t included in Obamacare, and said part of the solution is to pass a bill granting them citizenship rights.
The House is debating a GOP-written bill that would allow Americans to keep their health plans that have been canceled under Obamacare, but Mr. Polis, a Colorado Democrat, said the chamber should instead be looking at ways to make sure everyone in the country is covered by the Affordable Care Act — including illegal immigrants.
“American citizens are essentially being forced to pay for the health care costs of people who are here illegally every day, until we pass comprehensive immigration reform,” he said. “We’re wondering why rates are going up. … It’s no surprise. When somebody doesn’t have insurance, their costs are shifted onto other people that do.”
Illegal immigrants are one of the few categories of people in the U.S. who aren’t subjected to Obamacare’s individual mandate requiring all people to have health insurance coverage. They also aren’t eligible for taxpayer subsidies to buy insurance on the health exchanges, nor are they supposed to be getting assistance under Medicaid.
But Mr. Polis said leaving them outside of the health mandate means that they end up using emergency care, but don’t end up paying their own bills — leaving the rest of the country to pick up those costs.
He said the solution is to pass House Democrats’ bill, which would grant a long-term pathway to citizenship for most illegal immigrants. The legislation is known by its bill number, House Res. 15.
“If we can pass HR, 15 people who are here illegally will have to get insurance on their own instead of forcing Americans to pay for their insurance,” Mr. Polis said.
Hey Polis, I have a better idea. We wouldn’t have to pay for the little fucksticks at all if the federal government actually enforced the immigration laws. As it is, we already pay for their crimes, their anchor babies, their welfare, their education and their medical care.
Kathleen Sebelius thinks it’s a wonderful idea, as well.
The pandering jackasses already count illegals as part of their voting bloc. A mass influx of people—citizens or not—is going to overwhelm the already overburdened health care system. Illegals are to health care as food stamps are to “stimulus”.
Like the rest of their domestic agenda, there’s always a subversive angle.

I see this as a ploy to sneak the Immigration Amnesty bill through Congress under the false pretence’s of it helping the Failed Obama care.
