In news that won’t be a shock to any Twitchy reader, a new study prepared by Republicans for the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee found that up to 500,000 illegal immigrants took in $750 million in Obamacare subsidies.

From Fox News:
Illegal immigrants and individuals with unclear legal status wrongly benefited from up to $750 million in ObamaCare subsidies and the government is struggling to recoup the money, according to a new Senate report obtained by Fox News.
The report, produced by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, examined Affordable Care Act tax credits meant to defray the cost of insurance premiums. It found that as of June 2015, “the Administration awarded approximately $750 million in tax credits on behalf of individuals who were later determined to be ineligible because they failed to verify their citizenship, status as a national, or legal presence.”
The review found the credits went to more than 500,000 people – who are illegal immigrants or whose legal status was unclear due to insufficient records.
The rest here.
This is vindication for Rep. Joe Wilson in S.C. who famously shouted “You lie!” during President Obama’s 2009 SOTU speech right after the president promised illegal immigrants wouldn’t get Obamacare subsidies:

Remember when Joe Wilson said "You lie!" when Obama said illegal aliens would not qualify for Obamacare benefits? https://t.co/SQ30LyIk7S

He’s owed an apology, but won’t get it.
