Combining Obamacare and “executive action” amnesty means illegal immigrants will soon be $3,000 a year cheaper to hire than a legal American worker.
“President Obama’s temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare’s health exchanges.
Under the Affordable Care Act, that means businesses who hire them won’t have to pay a penalty for not providing them health coverage — making them $3,000 more attractive than a similar native-born worker, whom the business by law would have to cover.”
The Law of Unintended Consequences strikes Big Government again. No doubt one more law will set everything right again.
