Obama Judge Grants Illegals Something That Legal Citizens Don't Have, This Will Make Your Blood Boil
I have to warn you, this is absolutely a slap in the face of taxpayers everywhere. Especially the average person struggling to keep Obama's ridiculously expensive health care and living paycheck to paycheck.
United States District Court Judge Michael Simon, an appointee of President Barack Obama, issued the order Tuesday to stop the State Department from enforcing the measure, saying it violated federal immigration laws. Simon had temporarily blocked the rule this month.
The White House signaled in a statement that it would appeal the decision, saying, "We look forward to defending the president's lawful action."
"Congress plainly provided the president with broad authority to impose additional restrictions or limitations on the entry of aliens into the United States," said Stephanie Grisham, White House press secretary.
Trump's proclamation was meant to stunt the abuse seen in the taxpayer-funded medical system- i.e. Medicaid. However, thanks to this judge it's business as usual. How typical is it that an Obama appointed judge wouldn't require immigrants to provide their own health insurance. American citizens don't even get that choice unless they want to face hefty fines come tax time.
"Immigrants who enter this country should not further saddle our healthcare system, and subsequently American taxpayers, with higher costs," the White House proclamation said, adding that the U.S. spent $35 billion on uncompensated care during the last decade.
Immigrants would have needed to show that they received private coverage through a job, directly from an insurer, a short-term plan that is cheaper but offers less-generous benefits, or through a family member. They would not have been able to obtain tax subsidies through Obamacare that help them pay for premiums.
