Report: 125,000 illegals in California qualified to be covered by Medicaid (Joe Wilson was right!)
American Thinker ^ | 02/26/2014 | Thomas Lifson

I could have sworn Obama promised this wouldn’t happen. Via Weasel Zippers, the LA Times writes:

A new report shows that as many as 125,000 young California immigrants may qualify for an expansion of Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program.

The Affordable Care Act bars insurance subsidies and enrollment in the Medicaid expansion for undocumented immigrants, but a wrinkle in California rules does offer coverage for those with “deferred action status.”

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was created by President Obama in 2012 to grant immigrants who came to the country illegally as children — sometimes called Dreamers — legal status and work authorization for two-year periods.

Laurel Lucia, a policy analyst at the UC Berkeley Labor Center and author of the report released Tuesday, said California is one of the few states that lets youth with deferred action status enroll in Medicaid.

“But the word still hasn’t been spread,” she said.

The report found that 154,000 people in California had been granted the status as of December 2013. About 81%, or 125,000, are eligible for Medi-Cal based on their annual income, which has to be less than $15,850 for an individual.

To be eligible for deferred action, immigrants had to arrive in the U.S. before they were 16, be under 31 as of June 2012 and to have continuously lived in the U.S. since 2007.

154,000 just the start, if they qualify, the 12 million others do as well.

You and I and many of us did, but the country as a whole didn’t the first time, nor in 2012 a lot stayed home.

No surprise---vote-crazed Obama has done everything to suck-up to illegals to get Dem votes, except fellate a latino on the steps of the Capitol.

=============================================

THE BIG O/CARE FLOPOLA CONTINUES News reports say the Obama administration is engaged in a “final coordinated push” to enroll blacks in ObamaCare, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said last Friday.

(CACKLE) GOOD OL' SUCKUP VALERIE "FORGOT" TO MENTION---those NOT enrolling are the self-same "underserved populations" for whom class-warrior Obama upended our entire healthcare delivery system.....which threw productive Americans w/ affordable plans into eternal healthcare chaos.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has not said how many blacks have enrolled, but California enrollment trends indicate Hispanic enrollment appears to be lagging, stoking fears that minority groups (the underserved) are not getting the message.........

Apparently, the Obo-dum-dums finally figured out that sap-happy pols blanketed so-called "underserved populations" with so many govt freebies, like free medical care in emergency rooms, that these "underserved" types are thumbing their noses at laying out cash for Obamacare.

====================================================

AS FREEPER GOPJ INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: “underserved populations” are NOT impressed with Obamacare. Under the old system they were NEVER turned down - and took their medical needs to Hospital Emergency rooms where they received the best medical care for free... And the hospitals got to write the care off their taxes and struggling working class Americans paid for it all.......
