Soros Funds 501c3 Enrolling Prisoner In O-Care

From the Daily Caller:

George Soros and Obama administration fund Chicago group enrolling prisoners in Obamacare

By Patrick Howley | March 2, 2014

Progressive billionaire George Soros and the Obama administration help fund the Chicago nonprofit that set up Obamacare enrollment programs for prison inmates.

Chicago-based Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities (TASC) helped establish Obamacare enrollment programs for prisoners at Chicago’s Cook County Jail. Cook County is one of at least six states and counties enrolling prisoners to help shift inmate medical costs to federal taxpayers…

This article doesn’t mention it, but thanks to Obama-Care’s ‘Medicaid Expansion,’ prisoners are now covered by Medicaid. And some states and counties are now only too eager to dump the costs of treating their prisoners onto the Medicaid system. Which is already broker than broke.

But the states and counties are using Obama-Care Navigators, like this Democrat front group, to get the job done for them.

TASC, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, is funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), records reveal….

In fact, since this Democrat front group is a tax exempt 501c3, we taxpayers are funding it, two times over.

Open Society Foundations provided TASC a $49,417 grant to TASC in 2012 “to conduct an inventory and analysis of community-based alternative approaches to punitive drug policies and law enforcement at the “front-end” of the criminal adjudication process.” …

Former TASC director of research and policy Lisa Feldman Braude, who now works as an Obamacare implementation consultant, managed an Open Society Foundation inventory of clinical sentencing diversion programs in 2012. TASC led the research for a 2011 Illinois state commission that found that blacks are more likely to be sentenced to prison for drug offenses than whites…

Besides releasing criminals, Mr. Soros is also a big proponent of racial quotas for punishment.

The Illinois Corrections Department is also trying to get Medicaid coverage for prisoners hospitalized for at least 24 hours (which would create more incentive for prison hospitals to keep inmates in the infirmary longer, increasing costs) and for all prisoners who are close to release…

It’s all part of the left’s ultimate goal of overwhelming the welfare system, in order to bring on the revolution. (Cf. Cloward-Piven.)

    Another chapter in stealing all the cookies while we are entertained and distracted by trivia like Piers Morgan, the Oscars, Anthony Weiner, Miley Virus ‘twerking and the Royal Baby Bump.

    (btw – Miley Virus is worth a reported $120 – $150 million)

    “A Liberal Paradise would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment, free comprehensive healthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, and only Law Enforcement legally has guns.
    “And believe it or not, such a place does indeed exist. It’s called prison.”
    – Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Phoenix

    The top donors to political candidates are not the much-maligned Koch Brothers. The big money is going into the Democratic Party campaigns thanks to unions.
