Report Confirms Giving Obamacare to Undocumented Would Cost Taxpayers $20 Billion Yearly

Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 because of stuff like this, among other things. The American people, by and large, want to know that they come first. Is that really such a hard concept to grasp?

Trump understood it. Democrats didn’t – and don’t…and won’t. That’s the problem.

Democrats will continue to fight for illegal immigrants until they are blue in the face because for some reason they see it as a winning strategy. They must’ve forgotten how 2016 turned out. Either that, or they are just very, very unintelligent.

Would you like to pony up more of your hard earned dollars to take care of illegals?

Many of the Democratic candidates for president have endorsed providing health insurance to illegal immigrants. This analysis estimates the cost of providing illegal immigrants access to the existing system of government health benefits for low-income people. (We do not model the costs of scrapping the current system and giving all U.S. residents free government health insurance, as some candidates have proposed.) We estimate that there are 4.9 million uninsured illegal immigrants with incomes low enough to qualify for Medicaid or Advanced Premium Tax Credits (APTC), which are the subsidies provided by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Assuming a realistic enrollment rate, the cost of providing ACA subsidies to illegal immigrants would be about $10 billion per year, with costs rising to as much as $23 billion per year if all eligible illegal immigrants enrolled. Costs would be similar under a hybrid approach that provides Medicaid for the lowest-income illegal immigrants and ACA subsidies for those with higher incomes.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham made a big announcement recently and it has to do with Obamacare.

Here’s the scoop, via Breitbart:

Lindsey Graham said that Republicans will repeal Obamacare if Trump wins, the GOP keeps the Senate, and if the House Republicans take back the speaker’s gavel from Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Graham said, “If we can get the House back and keep our majority in the Senate, and President Trump wins reelection, I can promise you not only are we going to repeal Obamacare, we’re going to do it in a smart way where South Carolina will be the biggest winner.
