A meme from a Facebook site “America-Love It or Leave It” came out this weekend claiming that Social Security recipients will be losing a significant part of their benefits to undocumented immigrants.
The claim is absolutely false and easily researched by simply taking a look at the actual Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (or “Obamacare) of 2010. The law does not contain an “Article 54” in it. It is organized into titles and sections, like most other federal statutes. It is attached.
Unfortunately, the meme is pretty popular. The Facebook page lists over 20,000 shares, although many of the comments on the page are pointing out the false claim.
A number of sites have also picked up the meme and are debunking it.
