More Obama "incompetence," or another "Mission Accomplished" banner for the Oval Office?:
Barack Obama’s amnesty for illegal immigrants will produce a disaster of unparalleled magnitude when the ObamaCare employer mandate kicks in.
Those granted amnesty will not be eligible for ObamaCare. The amnesty will merely keep them safe from deportation; it won’t make them legal. And ObamaCare can only go to citizens and legal noncitizens living in the U.S.
But the employer mandate in ObamaCare requires large companies to offer insurance to each of their full-time workers or pay a hefty fine to the government for failing to do so.
Combine these two programs and you have a huge incentive for employers to dismiss any blue-collar workers on their payroll and replace them with illegal immigrants covered by amnesty. These folks are allowed to work but not to get ObamaCare. An employer can’t be fined for failing to offer ObamaCare to employees who are ineligible to receive it. It’s an employer’s dream!
Oh, I don't know about that, Mr. Morris. Why couldn't The One simply decree another delay of the employer mandate? In fact, that might be a good indicator of whether or not he's going to permit the 2016 election to take place, as if he's planning on remaining in office indefinitely, he'd have no more reason for any additional mandate deferrals. On the other hand, he could simply issue another diktat declaring illegals eligible to receive ObamaCare.
Or he could simply do nothing and allow working citizens to be replaced with illegal aliens en masse, and then issue a decree making the latter eligible for ObamaCare. That's the option on which I would put my dwindling pile of money.
It's amazing, isn't it, what can be accomplished with a pen, a phone, and two extended middle fingers.
It's good to be the king.
