Both Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea have made it clear that Hillary will strongly support Obamacare for illegal immigrants. She really believes in it now though she really didn’t in 2008 and prior to that.
Hillary has been saying this since October. Ten years ago, she told Congress that the illegal population should not receive any healthcare benefits.
During a 1994 testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
“We do not think the comprehensive healthcare benefits should be extended to those who are undocumented workers and illegal aliens. We do not want to do anything to encourage more illegal immigration into this country. We know now that too many people come in for medical care, as it is. We certainly don’t want them having the same benefits that American citizens are entitled to have,” the then-first lady said.
It’s a vote getter in immigrant communities especially with leaders who think everyone is entitled to citizens’ money as soon as anyone gets here illegally. They are also entitled to citizenship according to Hillary.
Anyone who thinks a nation can survive with endless illegal immigrants coming here so we can support them and take care of all their needs is greatly lacking in knowledge. Democrats promised Obamacare would never be given to illegal immigrants but they lied. There is little doubt they will get the subsidies as well.
This is one recent exchange with daughter Chelsea who has adopted her mother’s mannerisms and deceitful rhetoric:
AUDIENCE MEMBER: “Is she planning on expanding Obamacare as people know it, ACA, to include people who are not fully documented? Because when you get ill, your illness will not ask you if you are a permanent resident or not.”
CLINTON: “It’s such an important question. Thank you for supporting my mom. My mom has very strong feelings that we must push as quickly as possible for comprehensive immigration reform, and this is a real difference between her’s and Senator Sanders’ record, she supported comprehensive immigration reform at every possible chance and she was one of the original supporters and sponsors of the DREAM Act.
She does not believe that while we are working towards comprehensive immigration reform we should make people wait, like the families you are talking about.
Which is why she thinks it’s so important to extend the Affordable Care Act to people who are living and working here, regardless of immigration status, regardless of citizenship status. While we’re pushing for comprehensive immigration reform and reminding Republicans who are currently running for president that a couple of years ago they actually supported comprehensive immigration reform – something they seem to have forgotten during this election cycle – that we do whatever we can to solve challenges in the education system and the health system and elsewhere.”
“American taxpayers pay roughly $5,000 per year for each person enrolled in Obamacare. So the addition of only 10 million current illegals to Obamacare would cost taxpayers at least $50 billion per year, or $500 billion over 10 years…,” Breitbart News claimed.
Americans can’t even keep their own doctors and healthcare plans. Our medical plans have skyrocketed.
Please recall this exchange in which Hillary told a Democrat who can’t afford her health insurance (which is more than double her previous costs) that she should shop around and see what the prices are. The woman already did that obviously.
Hillary said a whole lot of nothing about vague possible solutions and then said, “I want you to keep shopping.”
Hilary Clinton in 2008 when she was adamantly against illegal immigration.
Then there is this. She said universal healthcare will never come to pass but three days later, she said it would.
