    As the Washington Examiner's Philip Klein recently reported: "Under Obamacare, businesses with over 50 workers that employ American citizens without offering them qualifying health insurance could be subject to fines of up to $3,000 per worker. But because newly legalized immigrants wouldn’t be eligible for subsidies on the Obamacare exchanges until after they become citizens – at least 13 years under the Senate bill – businesses could avoid such fines by hiring the new immigrants instead."

    Congress has to come up with a way for employers to escape some of the extra costs involved with Obamacare. Here is one way, hire foreigners!

    Welcome to modern Mercantilism, I mean multiculturalism. Don't want to use the wrong word, that might actually enlighten someone.

    Klein is confused; the provisions are separate and distinct. Just because an individual won't be eligible for subsidies on the exchanges doesn't mean he won't count as a worker under the requirement for the employer of over 50 workers to offer health insurance to qualified workers.

    Do you have the wording of the law?
