With the RINOs in Congress falling into neat sheeple ranks to vote for the immigration bill, Susan Berry points to an appalling fact about the bill that ought to be shouted from the rooftops: when it’s combined with ObamaCare, it gives employers an incentive to fire full-time American employees and replace them with amnestied illegals:
Under the Gang of 8’s backroom immigration deal with Senators Schumer, Corker and Hoeven, formerly illegal immigrants who are amnestied will be eligible to work, but will not be eligible for ObamaCare. Employers who would be required to pay as much as a $3,000 penalty for most employees who receive an ObamaCare healthcare “exchange” subsidy, would not have to pay the penalty if they hire amnestied immigrants.
Consequently, employers would have a significant incentive to hire or retain amnestied immigrants, rather than current citizens, including those who have recently achieved citizenship via the current naturalization process.
“Help us, Obi Wan House Republicans! You’re our only hope.” Since we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t, how about if we don’t vote for another massive, poisonous monstrosity?
