Biden Wants Illegal Immigrants to Enroll in Obamacare

If the Biden admin manages to extend Obamacare to DACA recipients, our national deficit will increase by a whipping $7 billion.

In yet another fiscal fumble by the Biden administration, their latest scheme to extend Obamacare enrollment to DACA recipients is projected to hammer the national deficit with a whopping $7 billion increase over the next decade. This figure comes straight from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), which released its findings on Monday, painting a clear picture of the financial folly this administration is keen to pursue.

The report indicates that approximately 110,000 DACA recipients, who are here illegally, will likely jump at the chance to enroll in marketplace coverage due to new eligibility rules under Obamacare. This is not just a slight uptick in spending; it’s a multi-billion-dollar blowout that makes a mockery of fiscal responsibility. 

Dreamers will be eligible to start enrolling in the Obamacare marketplace come November 1st, as confirmed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The broader implications are clear: the administration is bending over backward to accommodate illegal immigrants at the expense of American taxpayers and the integrity of our national finances.

This policy clearly illustrates that the Biden administration is willing to go to great lengths to accommodate illegal immigrants, blatantly prioritizing them over American citizens and the financial health of the nation. With this reckless fiscal path, one must ask when our leaders will stop the bleeding of our treasury to fund expansive entitlements for non-citizens. This trajectory towards the liberal use of taxpayer money to support an agenda-driven expansion of benefits to those unlawfully present in the U.S. must be reassessed if we are to avoid further jeopardizing our economic stability.
