Congress passes a law: The toxic combination of Obamacare and the proposed Senate immigration bill would create a big financial incentive for employers to hire non-citizens.

Under Obamacare, businesses with over 50 workers that employ American citizens without offering them qualifying health insurance could be subject to fines of up to $3,000 per worker. But because newly legalized immigrants wouldn’t be eligible for subsidies on the Obamacare exchanges until after they become citizens – at least 13 years under the Senate bill – businesses could avoid such fines by hiring the new immigrants instead.

Not surprisingly, the idiots who voted for this immigration bill haven’t read it and have no idea this problem exists.

    This is the list of Senators that need to be removed from office in the coming elections and replaced by people who actually reference the Constitution first when they vote. These people are reacting to circumstances when they should be acting in the interest of the people of our country. IMO this display of weakness is the intro to an actual real rebellion in the republican party (which is what they fear most) and the real possible viability of an independent third party.

    I doubt that I will be voting for a Republican in the coming elections, I will not be voting for another Bush in the coming elections, I will never entertain voting for any Clinton, Kennedy or any other political dynasty in the future.

    Republican leadership, pay attention to this post.

    If this goes through and companies hire new immigrants, it will be spun as the greedy CEOs not doing the right thing, incentives be damned.

    It appears that we are under one party rule, the demarcation line between dems and rinos is completely obscure, the only bright spot in todays news is the voting rights act ruled on by the Supreme court was struck down, however the party of supposed diversity calls Justice Thomas an uncle tom! I guess that party is only inclusive when things go their way!

    It is a situation so ironic it would be laugh-out-loud funny if it were not so heartbreaking. The Democrats bully and intimidate and fight tenaciously against the GOP, while they positively wilt or weakly respond in the face of tough talk and actions by this country’s potential enemies — China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Ecuador. Meanwhile, the GOP, which has shown toughness and determination against America’s enemies, cannot stand up to the bullies in the White House and the rest of the Democrat party. The term RINO should go down in infamy.

    Is this the concerted effort to deindustrialize America? Its been going on for the last 20 or 30 years and something like this would be the final blow. Who is it that says that this issue MUST be settled now and under this president? Anyone have an answer?
