California petitions to become first state to offer ObamaCare to illegal immigrants

Shocker, not.

From Fox News: California’s health care exchange is requesting that it be allowed a waiver from ObamaCare regulations in order to allow illegal immigrants to buy insurance on the exchange – which would make California the first state to extend ObamaCare to illegal immigrants.

In a Sept. 30 letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell, Covered California’s Executive Director Peter Lee said that the Affordable Care Act has been “tremendously successful” in the state and has cut the rate of uninsured in half.

“While millions of Californians have benefitted from coverage purchased through the Covered California marketplace, certain individuals are prohibited from buying insurance through our state marketplace due to their immigration status,” Lee wrote, before requesting the waiver.

The Affordable Care Act technically bars illegal immigrants from insurance exchanges, but in June Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that allowed the state to apply for a federal waiver to open Covered California to illegal immigrants living in California. The bill’s sponsor said such a waiver would allow 390,000 illegal immigrants to receive health insurance.

However, even if the Obama administration green-lights the waiver, the insurance plans that would be offered – California Qualified Health Plans – would not be subsidized.

yeah right

The Department for Health and Human Services did not respond to a request for comment from FoxNews.com.

Critics have objected to the plan, saying it is the latest sign the federal government misrepresented the purpose of the law.

“This is the first step in another misrepresentation of the Affordable Care Act,” Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform told US News & World Report in June. “It was sold to the American people on the fact that you wouldn’t have to subsidize health care for illegal immigrants.”

The issue of whether ObamaCare would be available to illegal immigrants was highly contentious in the debate building up to the law’s passage in 2010. In an address to a joint session of Congress in 2009, the president said ObamaCare would not apply to illegal immigrants, to which Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C. shouted “You lie!” Obama immediately responded, “That’s not true. That’s not true.”

  1. Given that morally & financially bankrupt state, I’m surprised California isn’t already extending Obamacare to illegals since they’re getting other welfare benefits.

  6. Oh, no. Just cut California below Ventura and build a wall, giving northern San Diego(above Chulajuana and Nuevo Hacienda i.e. National City) a militarily protected enclave status with a corridor along the coast to the US with shoot to kill orders for trespassers. Cede the rest to Mexico. Banish Brown to Nuevo Aztlan with shoot on sight orders if this traitor attempts to enter the US. And please give Mexico Hollywood with a no return guarantee. If you’ve ever been there it’s the biggest s-hole you’ve ever seen.

  9. Build a moat to cut off that part of california and mexico to the south,
    Send the dirt to louisana to raise them from below sea level,
    and export the excess alligators from florida to the moat.
    3 probleems solved.
    No people sneeking in,
    No more flooding in Louisana,
    Fewer allligators in Florida.

  11. Surprise!!!!!!! (NOT!)

    Believe me, living in CA…..anyone could see WAY BEFOREHAND by the myriad benefits that illegals rake in everyday….that, beholden to a Democratically-based political machine, they would receive Obamacare at some point. Even before “Obamacare offerings,” they have a patchwork of health care services, especially through the school systems (that branch out to include NOT ONLY the school-aged child…but the entire family….) and so many other services that I (the teacher) have an old “flip phone” in my purse, and 90% of the kids (nearly 80% on free breakfast/free lunch and 65% classified as economically “disadvantaged, as well as nearly 70% English-as-a second-language Hispanics…..) carry the latest $500 model smart phone……..

    I’m pretty much like the police—I’ve been way “out-gunned” by my “clientele” for years and years…….

    • Christian civilization is under attack, the battle will be severe, we will win, but we have to wake up. Isaiah I is a part of history that must not be repeated, verse 7 happened to Israel and was eventually corrected. “Your country is desolate, your cities are burnt with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.”

    Attacks against us are from within and without, box it the original source is. from without – the serpent of Revelation/Apocalypse 12 and elsewhere. We believed his lies long ago, and we are still, one way or another, falling for them.
