Obama says, donít worry, we wonít deport you if you sign up for Obamacare

On illegal immigration I am of mixed opinion. On the one hand I believe that someone who is willing to work hard and to contribute to society and the economy, who is looking to make a better life for him or herself and his or her family is someone we should welcome to our country. We should respect the pursuit of happiness.

On the other hand we should also respect the rule of law, and for good or ill, we have immigration laws in this country.

Some argue that business incentivises people to cross the border illegally and this is absolutely true. Much of “the business community” likes illegal labor because it is off the books and so less expensive for a myriad of reasons.

But the same can be said for our government which allows easy enrollment into the welfare state. In addition laws like the minimum wage increase the cost of domestic employees and creates a market for illegal, off the books workers.

Our immigration challenges such as they are are of our own making. Both business and government has made it worthwhile for people to cross into this country illegally. This should be kept in mind.

But I think it’s fair to say that we do have a significant challenge in illegal immigration as it is and that this challenge probably shouldn’t be exacerbated.

President Obama today just exacerbated it.

In a big to do with many of the Spanish speaking TV networks the president explained to a crowd that illegal immigrants do not need to worry about being deported if they sign up for Obamacare.

Though this site has huge problems with Obamacare, its crony capitalist giveaways chief among them, and though we wouldn’t endorse the wholesale sifting of information obtained from illegal immigrants just so they can be identified and deported, we also don’t think non-citizens should be encouraged to sign up for benefits which I think most people agree are there (such as they are) for US citizens.

The services are certainly paid for by US citizens.

Weren't we told at the outset that illegal aliens were not eligible for Obamacare?

But then we were told we could keep our doctors, keep our insurance and our rates would go down $2500 per year per family.

The Soviet Union was never this good at lying to its people. At least the Russian people were smart enough to know they were being lied to. They just couldn't do anything about it.

By and large Americans are a pretty stupid bunch of people. We elected this lying SOS twice.

Adding illegals will up the enrollment numbers.

They won't pay the premiums. They get free health care at the emergency room. Why would they pay $10,000 a year for the same coverage?

With their current plan they don't even have to pay deductibles.

You don’t deport them for signing up for ObamaCare, you deport them for BEING IN THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY!

Obama said to the illegals they could keep their illegal residncy, but don’t forget, he also told us we could keep our healthcare plans.

They may want to think twice before they swallow his bullshit.

Nick Sorrentino's an idiot.

If all the people in China who wanted to live in the United States (who are willing to 'work hard and contribute' - and that's ONLY one country) came here - there would be more people with the last name of "Wang" than Americans.

Hey Nick Sorrentino - pull out a map - grab some population demographics and do the math. Then quit giving away what doesn't belong to you.

For the last 40 years The Party of Government (’Rats and Rinos) has done everything it can to replace American votes with Mexicans.

Now why do you suppose that is?

More free health care for illegals.

Death panels for the rest of us.

Something to think about as they deny treatment to Grandma.

Adding illegals will up the enrollment numbers.

And their voting numbers.

Which is by design.

Is there a more obvious example of disregard for the law and contempt for the American citizen?

You know, if a miracle occurs and the American people wake up and elect a conservative Republican as president in 2016, he and his staff will have a nice, handy list of people to deport.

Of course, miracles do not happen much in American politics.
