Ever have one of those friends on FB that basically reposts every vile lie that they see on the internet? I do.
One today was attributed to Ben Stein. Maybe he said it or not. I don’t know. But, it said that illegal aliens can get free healthcare from Obamacare. It’s a lie. They cannot. To be able to get free healthcare from Obamacare, you have purchase insurance on the exchange and then get a refund from the government. Straight from the government website:
Undocumented immigrants aren’t eligible to buy Marketplace health coverage, or for premium tax credits and other savings on Marketplace plans. But they may apply for coverage on behalf of documented individuals.
I used to post responses from snopes.com to idiotic FB posts, but no longer. It’s not as if these people even care about the truth. When I was a kid, repeating unsubstantiated lies was called gossip. Now it’s called Facebook.
