Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think there is a link here that no one is talking about. Written into the ACA was the stipulation that all individuals who use the exchange to purchase insurance, receive subsidies or enroll in Medicaid MUST BE US CITIZENS OR LEGAL RESIDENTS. When one uses the marketplace, it would seem logical that through social security numbers and employment and income information, citizenship would be verified. Given that, it would seem that proof of insurance purchase (especially when subsidies are applicable) or Medicaid enrollment would be valid proof-of-citizenship documents that could be used to get voter ID cards. Why isn't this being looked at by anyone in the Democratic Party?
