Feds Grant ObamaCare to Illegals by Redefining a Term

Why further provoke the wrath of voters by pushing through a law or even by signing yet another executive order when you can achieve anti-American policy objectives through the entrenched bureaucracy just by redefining a term?

The Biden administration recently finalized regulations that will provide taxpayer-funded benefits to individuals who came into this country lacking authorization, by defining them as “lawfully present.”

Illegal aliens are not lawfully present. Except now they are. Because Biden’s bureauweenies say so.

The prime controversy in both last year’s proposed rule and this year’s final version is over health coverage for individuals participating in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Both regulations would revise the definition of “lawfully present” to include DACA participants for purposes of participation in health programs under Obamacare.

As Joe Wilson observed years ago, Democrats were lying when they barked that the illegal aliens they have been importing for purposes of demographic engineering would not get their healthcare at our expense via ObamaCare.

The idea that a president can unilaterally declare a group of individuals “lawfully” present without the consent of Congress defies logic, not to mention the basic principles of “our democracy” that the left purports to care so much about.

To refute this, Democrats can cite the influential postmodernist Humpty Dumpty:

‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.’

‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master—that’s all.’

So long as moonbats are our masters, a word has whatever meaning they find expedient.

On a tip from ABC of the ANC.
