How is Obamacare related to Obamnesty?

December 1, 2014

An intriguing connection between Obamacare and the President’s recent executive order on immigration is making the rounds.

The Washington Times Stephen Dinan noted that, “Under the president’s new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.”

Caroline May at echoed: “Nearly five million illegal immigrants will be eligible for legal status and work permits under President Obama’s amnesty. They are not, however, currently eligible for Obamacare.” 

In the video below, Dennis Michael Lynch explains how the two programs affect his ability to provide health insurance for his employees.

And finally, ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp appeared on The Washington Times’ Andy Parks Show today and discussed, among other trending topics, how the link between the two programs affects businesses’ abilty to hire and provide benefits to its employees.  You can listen HERE.
