Well, yeah, maybe Obama wasn’t lying about illegals under ObamaCare


President Obama said it: illegal aliens (or immigrants, or “undocumented” immigrants…or workers…pick your euphemism) will not be covered under his health care plan.

Actually, they could be, in several different circumstances. But they won’t be. The president said so. They so won’t be covered under ObamaCare, in fact, the U.S. Senate working to take the illegal immigrant loopholes out.

But wait: was President Obama “lying” when he said they wouldn’t be covered?

Or was he prophesizing?

Right Wing News contributor Van Helsing wrote yesterday, maybe the latter:

All he has to do is ram amnesty through Congress the way he rammed through the Porkulus outrage and Tax & Charade, and presto: no illegal aliens can collect ObamaCare, because no aliens are illegal.

Hm. Yeah, could be.

Or, more likely, Obama never read the bill. Why should he? None of the Congressmen have.

Is it his fault if he’s just repeating what an aide told him to say?
