Sebelius: We need comprehensive immigration reform to boost ObamaCare enrollment
“Well, the (Obamacare) bill is crafted in such a way that those who are undocumented will not have access to the tax credits or shopping in the (health insurance) marketplace. That has been limited, which is, frankly, why — another very keen reason why we need comprehensive immigration reform,” Sebelius told a gathering of Latinos in Philadelphia.
The remark drew applause at the Obamacare event hosted by Congreso, a Latino community service group.
“Unfortunately, you can’t fix — we won’t fix the immigration system, unfortunately, through the health care bill, but I think having the immigration bill that passed the Senate, pass the House, would be a huge step,” Sebelius added.
