Obama will penalize Americans over the health law but refuses to penalize illegals.

I think the piece says illegals in the process of legalization would be allowed to partake in Obamacare the same as you. If you fail to prticipate, then you will be penalized...the same as a person going through legalization.

The bill was for participation, not exemption of penalties for non-participation.

Either way the cost of illegals was never taken into account.

The whole purpose of having unlimited numbers of illegals coming here is to bring down wages. No way is any politician going to have the illegals start paying health insurance premiums or have their employers start paying for them. What they want to do is offer illegals the same free health care they've become accustomed to having but offer them Medicaid cards so they have more options in their free health care.

Imagine if illegals had to pay $600 a month health insurance premiums? The Mexican government would be outraged because that could cut down on the big remittance money that pours into Mexico every month.
