While Harry Reid continues to refuse to even negotiate with a Government shutdown looming, a small point in the debate is being overlooked. There are very many important reasons to delay Obamacare’s implementation; another reason is that Obamacare raises the possibility of illegal aliens voting.
Republicans have plenty of reasons to dislike Obamacare already, but they haven’t focused on one that could affect them in 2014 and beyond: anyone signing up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act will also have a chance to register to vote. . . .
Fully one in five of the nation’s uninsured are not U.S. citizens, making them ineligible to vote at all, a factor that helps explain why the Post-Kaiser poll found just 64 percent of uninsured respondents are registered, 22 points below the national average.
What safeguards are there, if any, to ensure that illegal aliens are not also registered to vote? While it is illegal, does anyone really believe that some at a minimum will slip through, intentionally or not?
