Healthcare reform exclusions raise concerns over funding for uninsured

Las Vegas Sun, December 17, 2012
In its efforts to pass the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration excluded immigrants who were not "lawfully present" in the country from the insurance mandate, avoiding the bear trap of an immigration debate sinking its teeth into health care reform. Even with those assurances, some lawmakers in 2009 sounded the alarm that the act would lead to misuse of taxpayer money. "Taxpaying families, already weighed down by bailouts and massive spending bills, cannot afford to pay for health insurance for millions of illegal aliens," Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in 2009.
