Another Obama lie: "the ACA will not insure illegal immigrants."

Among the long list of lies Team Obama told the public to get enough votes to pass the UnAffordable Care Act, add the many assurances that taxpayer-funded subsidies for health insurance wouldn't go to illegal aliens.

The “no illegals” pledge was a calculated lie that the president and his supporters discarded as soon as it was no longer needed. President Obama and the Dems were counting on the people’s short memories not to recall the promises he made in order to ram through his signature bill, and on the liberal mainstream media’s loyalty to not remind the public of what he said.

Here's Obama at the 2009 State of the Union Address:
There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants.  This, too, is false – the reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.
All liberals had to do was lie to get the monstrous bill passed. Having achieved that, they are now trying to shame anyone who was actually dumb enough to believe them by accusing them of depriving poor people of badly needed medical care, no doubt because of racist motives. “Of course Obamacare won’t cover illegals” is being replaced with “What’s wrong with Obamacare helping the undocumented?”

To think that the new healthcare "entitlement" will be any different from previous entitlements is the pinnacle of foolishness. We’ve been down this road a thousand times before. The program is supposedly only for citizens or legal resident aliens, but in reality no one’s checking. It will all run on the honor system, at the insistence of the dishonorable. The taxpayer will be robbed blind and anyone who doesn’t like it is a bad Christian, anti-American, and of course racist.

Hat tip here.
