Even though Obamacare is Legally Mandated/Required...

If Trump challenged Obama's birth, should we challenge Trump's status as a "mammal?"

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is expected to issue a proposal in coming weeks that would make it harder for legal immigrants to become citizens or get green cards if they have ever used a range of popular public welfare programs, including Obamacare, four sources with knowledge of the plan told NBC News.

The move, which would not need congressional approval, is part of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller’s plan to limit the number of migrants who obtain legal status in the U.S. each year.

Details of the rulemaking proposal are still being finalized, but based on a recent draft seen last week and described to NBC News, immigrants living legally in the U.S. who have ever used or whose household members have ever used Obamacare, children’s health insurance, food stamps and other benefits could be hindered from obtaining legal status in the U.S.

Immigration lawyers and advocates and public health researchers say it would be the biggest change to the legal immigration system in decades and estimate that more than 20 million immigrants could be affected. They say it would fall particularly hard on immigrants working jobs that don’t pay enough to support their families.

  1. Is Stephan Miller a dual Israeli/USA citizen? If yes then he is part of a particular crowd which deserves the rescission of certain benefits. The first benefit that comes to my mind is federal and/or state government employment. Anyone claiming dual citizenship should not only be barred from holding public office, they should also be prohibited from working for any and all state or federal tax payer funded job.
    Based on his ancestry I’m going to assume he’s an Israeli citizen. Not only is he but, according to the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island, his great grandfather, Nison (Max) Miller flunked his naturalization test on 14 November 1932. The court order denying his application gave a 1 word reason, “Ignorance”.
    Proof again, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

  2. I stand corrected. Upon looking it up to find out WHEN the repeal takes effect, I found out that it’s next year. So the individual mandate still applies, even now. So it’s still the case that you must buy health insurance this year, or pay a fine at tax time next spring. My bad, for wrongly assuming the repeal was immediate.
    See March 3, 2018, CNN, “The Obamacare tax penalty isn’t dead yet”.

  3. Yes, there was an individual mandate, until the new tax law repealed the mandate. You had to buy health insurance, or else pay a fine, right at tax time. You could not possibly have lived in this country and missed all that. Obamacare still exists, of course, along with other insurance options, but you are no longer forced to buy any of them. For the working poor, and for very small companies, nothing at all is about the only option left.

    • That’s okay . . . because it’s the same mentality that had AskeNAZIs in the labor/work/concentration . . . gas chambers/death camps . . . (take your pick) embrace their “liberators” — the U.S. armed forces, who bombed the supply lines, to the labor/work/concentration camps.
