Top Democrat Wants Obamacare For ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS (Video)
Top House Democrat Luis Gutierrez introduced legislation on Wednesday to provide Obamacare to all illegal aliens living in the United States.
Rep. Gutierrez (D-IL) pushed his legislation today on the House floor.
The Hill reported:
Congress’s most vocal immigration reformer introduced legislation Wednesday that would extend ObamaCare to the millions of people who are in the country illegally.
Rep. Luis Gutiérrez said his bill serves both a moral and economic purpose. Invoking the recent visit of Pope Francis, the Illinois Democrat said expanding the law’s health benefits would help the nation’s most vulnerable.
“Doing unto others as you would have them do unto you means moving forward with no restrictions on which brother and sister and neighbor we think of as ‘eligible’ or ‘deserving,’ ” Gutiérrez said on the House floor.
But he also argued that the broad coverage expansion is in the nation’s best interest because it would create younger, healthier patient pools, leading to lower insurance costs for those already enrolled in insurance plans.
“As a nation, we all benefit when we spread the risk, require younger, healthier workers to join our exchanges with the rest of us, reduce the costs of compensating hospitals for caring for the uninsured, and decrease the number of uninsured who live and work here,” Gutiérrez said.
