California, via Jerry Brown, will become the first state to ask federal officials to allow immigrants here illegally to buy insurance through its state health exchange. This is really interesting. I am not going to get too political about immigration here but my biggest concern was that they would be getting the government subsidies to buy insurance but supposedly not:
They would not receive public subsidies to reduce the cost of buying insurance.
So, they are paying full price? Does anyone believe that would happen? A family of four illegal immigrants will be paying $13,000 a year for a plan with a $12,000 deductible for the family? Sorry, not buying it. Something smells fishy here. The Democratic playbook has always been to get in with a trojan horse and then change the law later. In other words, ask for inch and then another inch and so. Dollars to donuts this clause gets changed. You heard it here first.Tweet
