Amnesty Bill’s $3,000 Penalty for Hiring Americans

If it isn’t clear yet that the federal government is hostile to the American population, the fingers poked in our eye by the Schumer/Rubio amnesty outrage should get the point across. Combined with ObamaCare, it actually fines employers $3,000 for hiring Americans rather than foreigners who snuck into the country illegally. Read it and rage:

As I’ve outlined previously, 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. …

In a free market, if a new immigrant worker can do a job better than an American worker for a cheaper price, there shouldn’t be a problem with a business hiring the immigrant. But when the immigration bill interacts with Obamacare’s employer mandate, it functions as a reverse tariff against hiring American citizens. It would be like subjecting Americans to a $3,000 tax on purchasing American cars, while allowing them to avoid that tax by purchasing cars from Germany, Japan, or any other country other than America. That’s not free trade. That’s government rigging the game against American citizens.

Rigging the game against American citizens who want to work is the federal government’s stock and trade.

The rats in Washington could fix this through amendments. But it is easier just to send out their pet flying monkeys to tell lies. I’m referring of course to the mainstream media:

The Washington Post’s Fact Checker, Glenn Kessler took issue with [Ted Cruz’s revelation of the penalty for hiring Americans], claiming: 1) there is no penalty; 2) even if there is a penalty it would only apply to a small number of jobs; and 3) even if there is a penalty and it applies to lots of jobs, it is illegal for employers to take advantage of it.

Kessler is wrong on all counts. But he still deserves a pat on the head for obediently doing the government’s bidding.

Good luck finding a job after amnesty.

    Today, June 26th, 2013, the SCOTUS has decided that the American flag will be replaced by a rainbow flag, telling the world that we are now a gay nation.

    With the influx of undocumented democrats, I hope to be able to purchase a phony birth certificate with a Hispanic last name so I can fake my way into a job by claiming I am a undocumented welfare leach.

  5. ThisObamaNation says:

    Any US Citizen not hired for this reason should sue the employer and the US Government for disparate treatment. Disparate Treatment is a form of this case it is discrimination on the basis of National Origin.

    @ Dr. 9

    I am pretty sure that Obama will make sure a crescent and a star will be included on that rainbow flag. And after that it won’t be long until the flag is green with a black crescent and star..

    The Birthers are right. So was McCarthy.

    The effect of this loophole or whatever you want to call it – the $3,000 penalty – it was not an accident. Some of our elected representatives really have it in for us.
