Dem logic: Turning illegals into citizens will cure Obamacare

Powered by Topple

A Colorado Democrat says making illegal aliens legal is the way to save Obamacare from disaster.

There just aren’t enough Americans being fleeced by the system as it is.

illegalaliens1115According to U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, D-Col., establishing a path to citizenship for people who enter the country illegally will help the government catch them in the Obamacare dragnet along with the rest of America.

“American citizens are essentially being forced to pay for the health care costs of people who are here illegally every day, until we pass comprehensive immigration reform,” he said, according to the Washington Times. “We’re wondering why rates are going up. … It’s no surprise. When somebody doesn’t have insurance, their costs are shifted onto other people that do.”

He can forget comprehensive immigration reform. Regardless of all the “civil rights” drivel mouthed by people like Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.,  over the summer, House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday pronounced the issue is dead.

“I’ll make clear we have no intention of going to conference on the Senate bill,” he said, according to CNN.

But dreamers like Polis keep dreaming.

Elected in 2008, Polis was part of the Democratic majority in both houses of Congress that pushed Obamacare into law during the disastrous two years of 2009-10. His website still brags about supporting it.

“If we can pass [immigration reform], people who are here illegally will have to get insurance on their own instead of forcing Americans to pay for their insurance,” Polis said.

That’s Democrat reasoning. One huge, unwieldy and complicated law – Obamacare – is turning out to be a disaster, and the liberal response is to inflict another huge, unwieldy and complicated law – immigration reform – onto the American public to improve things.

Most people want to become American citizens so they and their children can enjoy the fruits of being full members of the greatest country on earth.

Polis wants to make illegal aliens American citizens so Democrats can treat them as shabbily as Obamacare is trying to treat the rest of us.
