    Immigration Bill Could Add Billions to Cost of Obamacare






    Proposals in the Senate immigration bill to legalize the nation's 11 million undocumented workers and expand the guest worker program will cost the government billions as more people become eligible for Obamacare, according to a new Congressional Budget Office analysis.

    The CBO predicts that workers at the top and bottom of the income scale will also face higher rates of unemployment and lower wages as they compete with newly legalized immigrants, according to the Washington Times.

    The CBO calculated the bill would cost $87 billion more in subsidies for immigrants who qualify to buy insurance on the new Obamacare health exchanges. While the newly legalized won't be eligible, guest workers and several other categories of work visa holders, would be.
    The CBO also estimates that if the bill is passed by Congress and signed into law, an additional 10.4 million people will be living in the United States by 2023.

    the higher the US population the greater GDP is in our consumption based economy. it's what it's always been about.

    it's funny to see people still getting riled up over this shit. how do you think the US population tripled in the past 100 years? when US birth rates have been steadily decreasing the past 30-40 years?

    I agree all posters in this thread.

    Immigration bill is bad. I don't want any more immigrants in the US. 315 million is enough - too much. Too much consumption, waste of resources.

    Yes, the US is devolving into a turd-world nation because of these immigrants with low skills from 3rd world nations.

    And yes they will cost us with the OP and CBO report. (also see the 43 million more immigrants projected to come in a CBO report on Drudge today.

    And yes, the US govt. wants more immigrants and turd worlders to consume, consume, consume is the consumption based economy and to add more robots to the tax base.
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.
