The majority of Americans are dreading the implementation of Obama’s ever-growing National Healthcare Monster, known as Obamacare.
Obama and minions are already hard at work, preparing for the socialization of the (soon to be formerly) best Healthcare System in the world, by revamping the DHS-supplied informative manual given to new legal immigrants.
Carol May of The Daily Caller reports that
…USCIS spokesman Daniel Cosgrove told TheDC the new manual will be out by the end of fiscal year 2013.
When asked if the revamping had anything to do with the president’s push for immigration reform, Cosgrove said that the effort was “an ongoing project” for the department.
As TheDC previously reported, some have concerns about the manner in which the government is promoting government benefits, including in the welcome materials, to new immigrants.
In November, Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions advocated taking the “Government Benefits” page down.
“Some of these programs are clearly not available for immigrants,” Sessions told TheDC in November, “and it just creates confusion out there and suggests that if you can get into America, you can leave and get onto these programs, and from what we are seeing, many of these people are successful in getting on benefit programs that they are not lawfully entitled to.”
DHS launched WelcometoUSA.gov in 2007, and the guidebook was first developed in 2004 and revised in 2007.
Update: After publication Sessions weighed in on the department’s expected addition of the Affordable Care Act to WelcometoUSA.gov.
“The administration’s determination to place immigrants on federal assistance, including the President’s health law, will add trillions to the cost of any amnesty,” the Alabama senator told TheDC. “It is wrong and unfair to ask Americans to pay higher taxes and bear more debt in order to provide free benefits to legal and illegal immigrants. Such a policy weakens growth and undermines the core legal and economic principle of immigration – that you should be able to establish before you come here that you are financially self-sufficient.”
What about those of us who are already as American as Apple Pie? Is Obamacare free for us, too?
Answer: Oh, Heck no. We’re going to be paying out the wazzoo. (That’s a medical term.)
CNSNews.com tells us that
In a final regulation issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.
Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.
The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan.
The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.
“The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000,” the regulation says.
Bronze will be the lowest tier health-insurance plan available under Obamacare–after Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Under the law, the penalty for not buying health insurance is supposed to be capped at either the annual average Bronze premium, 2.5 percent of taxable income, or $2,085.00 per family in 2016.
Here is the best summary of this unneeded monstrosity that I’ve ever seen, given by an American Doctor, who was introducing a serious speech about Obamacare:
We’re going to be gifted with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t, which purportedly covers at least 10 million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that didn’t read it, but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes … same sentence … with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect by the government, which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare — all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.”
The Maha Rushie’s brother, David Limbaugh, wrote the following :
Americans were outraged and horrified by this president’s reckless spending and his endless assaults on the Constitution, but no issue drove them to rise up and fight back like Obamacare – both the abominable legislative monstrosity itself and the tyrannical, corrupt manner by which Obama crammed it through the legislative process.
So now, in an effort to buy votes from potential new Democrat voters, the President and his Administration are marketing (And, I should know, I’m a VP of Marketing) Obamacare to legal immigrants, as one of the perks gifted to them by their benevolent Uncle Sugar.
I always thought that the promise of American Freedom was enough to buy loyalty.
