Example of Obamacare discrimination

December 6, 2013

Subsidies offered through Obamacare may be out of the reach to those lacking state-issued identification. To access Obamacare to get "free" healthcare or subsidies, you need a Social Security card, a form of identification and tax returns. Don't have any of those? Great, what do I need to get that? According to the Social Security Administration’s own website, you can only prove  your identity with some form of state-issued identification. To get a Delaware State ID, you will need a birth certificate, two proofs of Delaware residency and a non-U.S. citizen must provide proof of legal presence in the United States.

But wait a minute. Isn't that taking advantage of the poor minority? According to voter ID law opponents and Attorney General Eric Holder, requiring someone to show they are who they say they are is discrimination and suppression! It’s ironic, then, that Attorney General Eric Holder recently sued the state of North Carolina over its new voter ID law. The state law allows prospective voters three years - until the 2016 elections - to obtain a valid ID to vote. Obamacare, available for enrollment as of October 1, begins punishing those without identification in just three months through its individual mandate.  This is liberal hypocrisy at its best.
