Hispanic lawmakers say an old adversary, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, has his fingerprints all over a push to prohibit illegal immigrants from buying health insurance plans in a new market for people who dont get insurance through their employers.
A forensic study would show it all leads back to Rahm Emanuel and the White House, said Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus who worked with Emanuel when the presidents top aide was in the House.
This analysis is inaccurate, said a White House aide who had been shown the comments made by Hispanic lawmakers.
The health care bill passed by the House earlier this month would prevent illegal immigrants from getting subsidies to buy insurance, but they would be permitted to buy plans from the exchange with their own money. The Senate bill would cut off that option.
Talk about irony. While the usama obama crew pushed this latest power grabbing, freedom robbing pile of garbage through some of the folks who would also benefit are getting cut out..namely those who are in this country as lawbreakers. It’s now these lawbreakers whining about how they are getting but out…of course this doesn’t change the fact the current administration is as much of a criminal enterprise as the last one was.
