If you need just one example of how out-of-touch Hillary is with the American people, her unwavering support of Obamacare comes to mind. While it may draw applause to her liberal audience, it’s going to fall on deaf ears when it comes time for her to appeal to the rest of the country in a general election.
Only 15 percent of people say they’ve benefited from Obamacare, while 25 percent say it hurt them. So for every success story Obama or Hillary can tout, there are almost two who experienced just the opposite.
Hillary has a plan to have Obamacare help more people – there’s just one problem. They aren’t Americans.
Hillary Clinton “thinks it’s so important to extend the Affordable Care Act to people who are living and working here, regardless of immigration status, regardless of citizenship status,” Chelsea Clinton told the advocate March 15, at an event in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Roughly 14 million illegal immigrants are living in the United States, alongside 310 million Americans, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.Donald Trump quickly denounced the move.
Do you believe that Hillary Clinton now wants Obamacare for illegal immigrants? She should spend more time taking care of our great Vets!

American taxpayers pay roughly $5,000 per year for each person enrolled in Obamacare. So the addition of only 10 million current illegals to Obamacare would cost taxpayers at least $50 billion per year, or $500 billion over 10 years, partly because many migrants lack workplace skills or even the ability to speak English.
So how does this make any sense? Well, when she turns them into voters, she needs to secure that they’ll vote Democrat somehow.
