    Obamacare offers firms $3,000 incentive to hire illegals over native-born workers


    Under the president’s new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.

    President Obama’s temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare’s health exchanges.

    Under the Affordable Care Act, that means businesses who hire them won’t have to pay a penalty for not providing them health coverage — making them $3,000 more attractive than a similar native-born worker, whom the business by law would have to cover.

    The emperor must have had that MIT prof tell him how to fool the stupid American people once again. The emperor says no illegal left behind.

    This reminds me of another program from Obama's hand to theirs!

    This is awfully close to the "Cash for clunkers!" incentive Obama invented during the recession!

    This $3,000 "incentive" existed before Obama issued the executive order. Employers who hired illegal immigrants obviously did not declare them as employees on their books before the executive order.

    Of course it did. But no one could collect.

    Because of the executive order, they can now.

    So what is your point?

    Before the executive order they hire an illegal alien and they would never list them as an employee. They avoid providing them with health care. There is no penalty.

    After the executive order they hire an illegal alien with a work permit and they don't have to list them as a health care eligible employee. They avoid providing them with health care. There is no penalty.

    What can they now collect?

    I got it now.

    You just don't believe avoiding a $3000 dollar penalty is an incentive to hire an illegal with a work permit. You're picking at the word "collect". Nobody "collects" anything.

    Congratulations. Very astute.

    Now that that is cleared up, do you have anything worthwhile to contrubute?

    Yes, there was/is a $3,000 incentive to hire an illegal. Work permit is irrelevant.

    Yeah, change your title to "Obama's Executive Order Legalizes $3,000 Incentive to Hire Illegals over Native-Born Workers".

    No it's not.

    Read some more.

    If you have a problem with the title, take it up with the Times reporter that wrote the story.

    We know you object to the word "collect" for incentive. That one was my fault. We know you object to the title, as usual.

    Do you have anything worthwhile to contribute?
