Thanks Obama. You’ve screwed America Once again.
According to reports, Obama’s much maligned and largely inept Obamacare program has dealt Americans another blow to the pocketbook. It’s not even to real Americans either. In fact it benefits illegals at the expense of U.S. citizen’s bottom line.
Obamacare gave illegal immigrants more than $750 million in benefits last year. Yup. You read that correctly. $750million. Unbelievable.
While veterans are struggling to get care, it seems like a move like this by the Obama administration just kicked every Veteran squarely in the teeth.
Illegal immigrants and individuals with unclear legal status wrongly benefited from up to $750 million in ObamaCare subsidies and the government is struggling to recoup the money, according to a new Senate report obtained by Fox News.
The report, produced by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, examined Affordable Care Act tax credits meant to defray the cost of insurance premiums. It found that as of June 2015, “the Administration awarded approximately $750 million in tax credits on behalf of individuals who were later determined to be ineligible because they failed to verify their citizenship, status as a national, or legal presence.”
And here’s how backward and stupid the system is.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services confirmed to FoxNews.com on Monday that 471,000 customers with 2015 coverage failed to produce proper documentation on their citizenship or immigration status on time – but stressed that this does not necessarily mean they’re ineligible.
“Lack of verification does not mean an individual is ineligible for financial assistance, but only that a Marketplace did not receive sufficient information to verify eligibility in the time period outlined in the law,” CMS spokesman Aaron Albright said.
Let’s give ISIS benefits while we’re at it. Seems like that’s the nest step in Obama’s process doesn’t it?
