Remember that time when South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson shouted “You Lie!” just after President Obama assured American’s before a joint session of Congress that illegal immigrants would not be eligible for Obamacare?
If not, we highly recommend you take a look:
Apparently California Governor Jerry Brown was not convinced by Obama’s denials as he signed a bill back in June that allowed the state to apply for a federal waiver to open Covered California to illegal immigrants. And, lest you thought it was a bluff, Covered California’s Executive Director Peter Lee has just sent a letter (attached in its entirety below) to the Health and Human Services Secretary, Sylvia Burwell, requesting a waiver to “expand access to undocumented individuals.”
While the waiver would only allow for “undocumented individuals” to purchase “unsubsidized health insurance plans” we suspect that this is just an initial request in what will turn into a long-term negotiation that will ultimately result in taxpayers providing free healthcare to illegal aliens in California.
As Bill would say, “it’s the craziest thing in the world!“
