Healthcare reform: citizens vs. Illegal immigrants

"Under Leader Reid’s amendment, in the year 2019 about 16 million U.S. citizens would be uninsured and be forced to pay a penalty tax of almost $800 per year. About eight million illegal aliens would be uninsured and would owe no penalty tax. Both groups would get their health care through a combination of out-of-pocket spending and use of uncompensated care in emergency rooms and free health clinics."

Illegal aliens get to participate in the "insurance exchanges", but they don't have to pay the penalty if uninsured? How is that justifiable?

P.S. - Rep. Wilson was correct. He lied.
