Reid Senate Bill: Uninsured Americans Will Pay Penalty… Uninsured Aliens Won't

More hope and change…
Obamacare will penalize uninsured Americans but uninsured aliens will get a pass.
What a shock.
Keith Hennessey reported, via Instapundit:

Under Leader Reid’s amendment, in the year 2019 about 16 million U.S. citizens would be uninsured and be forced to pay a penalty tax of almost $800 per year. About eight million illegal aliens would be uninsured and would owe no penalty tax. Both groups would get their health care through a combination of out-of-pocket spending and use of uncompensated care in emergency rooms and free health clinics.

This seems unfair.
