Obamacare Recruiting Illegals in California [Joe Wilson was right when he said "You lie!" to Obama]
breitbart.com ^ | February 14, 2014 | Joel B. Pollak

In 2009, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) apologized profusely to the White House for shouting, "You lie!" as President Barack Obama told Congress that Obamacare would not cover illegal immigrants. Now it would appear that the White House owes Wilson an apology, as Covered California--the flagship of state Obamacare exchanges--is recruiting illegal ("undocumented") immigrants to sign up for the program, regardless of their eligibility.

The Covered California website includes a special page entitled: "No temas si eres indocumentado/a y quieres inscribir a tu familia en un seguro médico" ("Fear not if you are undocumented and want to enroll your family in health insurance"). The website goes on to explain that information shared with Obamacare cannot be shared with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). It does not explicitly warn that illegal aliens are ineligible.

"According to the laws and implementing regulations," the website says, "the information provided by individuals for coverage can not be used for purposes other than ensuring the efficient functioning of the insurance market ( Covered California) or administration of the program, or to verify certain eligibility determinations including verification of the immigration status of these people."

This is what happens when you have an unimpeachable president. Despotism.

This is ALL so easy for 0bama to skirt around.

The reason he claimed there would be no illegals getting 0zombiecare is because he was going to make them ALL Legal.

Get it?

So, technically, he was correct and did not lie.

Not sure if it will do much good but this should be brought to the attention of Congress.

Don’t worry. Boner will cover for him, saying we all didn’t understand what he actually said.

Then he’ll send the IRS after anyone who points this out, while he joins the Kenyan for another round of golf.

Everyone with an IQ of a snail knew that the Democrats would buy Mexican votes with this newest federal freebie. California doesn’t have enough sick people,so they’re importing them from Mexico.

I assume this is so you can enroll your American children. I’m sure illegals will also end up enrolling and there will be no way to stop them. Probably what they intended.

“Not sure if it will do much good but this should be brought to the attention of Congress.”

I’m pretty sure that it won’t do much good. For now.

A CA state senator introduced a bill to either allow illegals in Medi-Cal or to buy subsidized insurance on a Covered CA exchange. Bend over CA.

Covered California.

Covered with curses perhaps. I think that’s what happens when you try to do charity by “robbing the rich.”

People started sending Joe Wilson money after he yelled “You lie!” I thought I’d wait and see if he apologized. He did.

Don’t get me wrong. At least he had the guts to yell out the truth while boner and mcconnell yelled “We surrender!”

The rich? I'm not rich and liberals have been robbing me for decades.

Liberals love spending other peoples' money, and that includes money from middle class Americans who can scarcely afford it.

As Bloomberg News notes, Latinos have been slow to sign up for Obamacare, partly because of problems with the Spanish-language version of the Obamacare website

Most latinos who are here legally speak english. So if they are slow to sign up, it isn't the language problem.

Its that they don't want it either. They may have wanted what they thought it was going to be, but they don't like the reality of it any more than anyone else does.

"No temas si eres indocumentado/a y quieres inscribir a tu familia en un seguro médico"

Not just a liar, but a shameless liar.

It is sickening to watch the accompanying video in which the unctuous crook veritably oozes faux sincerity and paternalism.
