Hillary Clinton dropped a bombshell this week when she told CNN that she supports illegal aliens being allowed to enroll in Obamacare.
During an interview with Anderson Cooper on Monday night, Hillary claimed illegals should be allowed to get Obamacare plans because it’s “moral” and also because it will keep “ourselves healthy,” meaning it will ensure the illegals who share our country with us are healthy.
According to Breitbart, this is Hillary’s latest attempt to force her way to the left of Bernie Sanders on illegal immigration issues during the contentious Democratic primary process, seemingly unaware of how badly these views will play in the general election.
“There are two steps here,” Hillary said. “If someone can afford to pay for an insurance policy off the exchanges that were set up under the Affordable Care Act, I support that.”
“Even if they’re undocumented?” Cooper asked.
“Yes. If they can afford it, they should be able to go into the marketplace and buy it,” Hillary responded.
Hillary added that though she is not yet ready to give taxpayer-funded subsidies to illegal immigrants, she suggested that an amnesty for illegal immigrants would allow them to get subsidies, which would be worth roughly $5,000 per person per year.
“It is not going to apply to people who are in need of subsidies in order to afford that,” she said. “Because the subsidies question has to be worked out in comprehensive immigration reform. What I do want to see is that we have more options for undocumented people to be able to get the health care they need.”
Hillary added that getting illegal immigrants into Obamacare, “is not only the right and moral thing to do for them, it’s also important that we keep ourselves healthy, and public health requires that.”
