Obamacare is fast becoming a tool to save counties money that they would otherwise spend on health care for inmates who have not yet been convicted of crimes.
The Affordable Care Act excludes convicts, but opens a loophole for jail officials who want to avoid using their own budgets to help sick prisoners awaiting trial.
Taxpayers in all 50 states will cover the costs for county governments as Obamacare's expenses spiral upward.
Obamacare's enrollment statistics will also increase artificially as inmates are enrolled as soon as they are booked and fingerprinted .
