Remember when Joe Wilson interrupted Obama’s healthcare speech in Congress and yelled out, “You lie”. Obama had just promised that illegal aliens wouldn’t be eligible for Obamacare. During the same speech Obama said there weren’t death panels and we wouldn’t pay for abortions. All were lies as Joe Wilson indicated.
The Washington Examiner reported a couple days ago that on November 11th, HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell told Latino bloggers in an online chat that Barack Obama wants illegal aliens to get Obamacare. That should come as no surprise. Everything about Obamacare was a lie.
Burwell was asked if Dreamers and mixed families (illegals and legals in one family) would receive benefits. She said Dreamers don’t get it yet but she made it clear that she wants that to change and the administration feels “incredibly strongly” about that.
Where they think we will get the money for this is unclear.
She said that families with illegal members are welcome to receive benefits.
“Mixed families should come, they should seek and try, go on the site, they’ll find out they can get financial assistance,” Burwell said. “They may be eligible for different programs for their children or themselves.”
This administration is incredibly generous with other peoples’ money.
She reminded them no one in government will ask applicants if they are legal or not.
“Everyone should come on, and folks should not be scared,” Burwell said. “No questions will be asked, and it is not about an immigration issue.”
The president is going to give federal benefits to all the illegals who will receive amnesty. It won’t be 5 million people, it will be all 20 million or more who are actually here, not counting all the new ones pouring in.
Back in August 2011, Joe Wilson backed up his inelegant comment.
He said at the time that $8.5 million of a $28.8 million award to community healthcare centers has been specifically set aside to help seasonal and migrant farm workers, and that the clinics have been told not to ask for immigration status.
“It is clearly providing money that should be going to American citizens not to illegal immigrants,” he told the Fox News show “America Live.”
“It’s even worse than I thought,” he added. “They won’t even ask for status.”
Wilson’s assertion came after Health Resources and Services Administration spokeswoman Judy Andrews told CNS News that the clinics would not ask patients’ whether they are in the country legally.
“The Program’s authorizing statute does not affirmatively address immigration status,” Andrews said. ”Rather, it simply states that health centers are required to provide primary health care to all residents of the health center’s service area without regard for ability to pay.
“Health centers do not, as a matter of routine practice, ask about or collect data on citizenship or other matters not related to the treatment needs of the patients seeking health services at the center.”
Wilson said, correctly, that means it is “inevitable that they will serve illegal aliens.”
“The president specifically promised the American people that Obamacare would not cover those who are here illegally,” he wrote on his campaign website. “He misled all of us.”
Listen to Joe Wilson and don’t forget this was before Open Borders and Dreamers:
You can keep your healthcare – NOT!
It’s a mess, extremely expensive, and there are death panels. Go to 08:20 for the mortality question:
And let’s not forget the continuous lies exposed unwittingly by Jonathan Gruber.
The lie in the following video was about the Cadillac tax though in another video he revealed Obamacare was a way to eventually get to single payer:
In the next video, Gruber says it’s a way to get to single payer:
As for abortions, we pay for those too and it only costs the person aborting the baby $1. We the taxpayer pick up the difference. Read about that on this link.
Remember how he said our premiums would go down:
Let’s not forget he got the thing passed with bribery in addition to lies.
