U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson was right. Obama lied about illegal aliens getting ACA coverage.

April 13, 2023, Fairfax, Va.—Americans Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting a proposal by President Joe Biden to offer health care coverage to illegal aliens under the Affordable Care Act, including Medicaid or the taxpayer subsidized individual insurance exchanges:

“When former President Barack Obama claimed while in office to the U.S. Congress that illegal aliens would not be eligible for Obamacare, U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson shouted two words that were heard around the world, ‘YOU LIE.’

“U.S. Rep. Wilson was pilloried for his audacity in calling out the former president’s politically motivated claim, but once again, he has been proven eerily prescient. President Joe Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services has announced that they are seeking to redefine the term ‘lawful resident’ via regulation to make illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as children eligible for the budget busting federal government health insurance plan.  Biden, for his part, tweeted, ‘Today, my Administration is announcing our plan to expand health coverage for Dreamers, the thousands of young people brought to the U.S. as kids. We’re not done fighting for their pathway to citizenship, but we’re getting them the opportunities they deserve in the meantime.’

“Not surprisingly, none of the professional fourth estate defenders of the Obama-Biden assault on the laws of the nation have issued a public apology to Representative Wilson for his forceful truth-telling so many years ago.”
