Joe Biden Vows to Give Taxpayer-Funded Health Care to Every Illegal Alien in America
2020 Democrat pledges Obamacare for all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the US
Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden has vowed to give taxpayer-funded "free" health care to every illegal alien living in the United States of America.
Former Vice President Biden has pledged to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all illegal immigrants in the US, estimated to be 11 to 22 million people.
Biden made the pledge during an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart this week.
Although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free health care at Americans’ expense, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegals from enrolling in health care plans.
Still, Biden promised that under his plan, every single illegal alien would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:
DIAZ-BALART: "When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …" [Emphasis added]
BIDEN: "Yes." [Emphasis added]
DIAZ-BALART: — "to health insurance."
BIDEN: "Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else." [Emphasis added]
DIAZ-BALART: "Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t." [Emphasis added]
BIDEN: "Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that." [Emphasis added]
DIAN-BALART: "They cannot under the ObamaCare." [Emphasis added]
BIDEN: "Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could." [Emphasis added]
Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for health care for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.
Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized health care, emergency room visits, and other health services, according to Breitbart.
Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded health care to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs.
Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.
As Breitbart has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”
Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan.
The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.
Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates.
A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
