Obama Administration To Insurers: There’s No Such Thing As Illegal Immigrants
The Federalist ^ | April 10 | Ben Domenech

Posted on 04/10/2014 9:49:30 AM PDT by Hojczyk

Lost in the overall shuffle concerning the many problems with Obamacare’s exchanges is the central problem of enforcement of those aspects of the law the president hasn’t waived or delayed yet – including the particular challenge when it comes to verifying the immigration status of those applying for taxpayer subsidized insurance.

On April 1st, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued a new guidance document to health insurers. The CMS guidance says that people whose immigration status is uncertain will be presumed eligible for subsidized coverage in Obamacare’s marketplaces while a further review is pending. Emphasis mine:

If there is an application inconsistency, the Marketplace will provide the consumer with eligibility while the inconsistency is being resolved based on the information provided on the application.

There's no such thing as the rule of law.

Well I guess this means there’re no such things as tax cheats, either.

If I recall correctly, Joe Wilson was criticized for saying that Obama was lying on exactly this point.

Logical fallacy central with this administration.
Either someone is a citizen or they aren’t.
And if they aren’t, they are either here legally or not.

I agree. There is no such thing as an illegal immigrant. Those who eschew the process to become citizens are not immigrants.

They are illegal aliens and should be sent packing. If enough of them come in they are invaders and should be shot on sight.

Medicare? I thought that only people who paid into it from via deductions from their paychecks got the benefit.

Unless illegals have a social security number and legal documentation, they are not paying into it. And if they do, then that means they are breaking the law... again and again.

Wow, call me a fool.

The big evil capitalist insurance companies are to pay through the nose and don't complain.
That's the message anyway.

Yes, they aren’t immigrants, they are foreign invaders and a direct threat to the citizens of the US because they could be anybody: Serial killers, rapists, robbers, terrorists, disease carriers. How would you know? You can’t, oh that’s right, because immigration doesn’t check them out. They don’t even let you take plants and fruits into the country without a permit, but human beings are perfectly OK? Oh you mean human beings who everyday commit mass murder, rape, robbery?? Yes every kind of human being is perfectly safe, no need to check them out, move it along.

I wonder if the current administration will drop pamphlets to invite terrorists from the Nine Countries that Hate America Most to come across our Southern Border?

Maybe Holder will give them some taxpayer funded weapons...

“If I recall correctly, Joe Wilson was criticized for saying that Obama was lying on exactly this point.”

He was criticized for saying it during a speech that millions of Americans were watching. Many people say Obama is a liar, but Joe Wilson really got the word out there to EVERYBODY.

Obama is correct: they are criminals, not immigrants.

How to get to 7.1 million:

(1) Ask the Mexican Embassy to help sign people up (yes, the Obama Administration really did that).

(2) Ignore eligibility rules, i.e., the rule of law (yes, the Obama Administration really did that again).

(3) Count anyone who put something in their shopping cart as a purchaser in order to lie about the numbers, whether or not they actually tried to buy, and whether or not they paid the premium (yes, well, you know).

Obama Administration To Insurers: There’s No Such Thing As Illegal Immigrants

Oh really?
Can somebody help me out here?
When were all the legally adopted immigration laws repealed? Superseded?

Can the Executive Department nullify Constitutionally enacted laws?
Since when?

If Obama wants to avoid impeachment (sooner or later) all he has to do is have a Dim-o-crap in the Senate introduce a law repealing existing immigration laws. As long as it's not revenue-related, it's a piece of cake.
Let the process take its course and let's see what shakes out.

Making a imperative sentence doesn't mean squat, in regards of authorizing or repealing functions reserved to Congress (both houses.)

Well, in his alternate universe, Hussein has to announce it first.
Then there will be no such thing.

Holder says he has “great discretion” in what laws to enforce or not.

I guess they’re just choosing to not enforce the immigration laws...

“the man of lawlessness” is here, folks.
