California Gov. Newsom Set To Give Health Benefits To Illegal Immigrants, Gets Burned

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom is excitedly finalizing his plan to give health benefits to illegal immigrants. Americans are outraged with our Southern border still wide open despite President Donald Trump’s best efforts, and imagine the number of illegals bursting our borders hoping to get everything free thanks to the Trump-hating Newsom. That’s why he immediately got torched. Don’t miss this.

Say goodbye to California. It looks like its new governor is putting the final nail in its coffin. California lawmakers released a final draft of the state’s 2020 budget late Sunday evening that would expand health care to illegal immigrants and cost taxpayers nearly $100 million per year.

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom reached an agreement with Democrats in the state legislature to become the first state in the nation to provide full health care benefits to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants.

As California goes, so goes the rest of the blue states, and this rallying cry for “free health care” will only stimulate mass migration to our Southern border. 

“As part of a larger $213 billion budget, low-income illegal immigrants under the age of 26 will be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, Medi-Cal, reported The Sacramento Bee. Under the agreement, approximately 90,000 new individuals would qualify with an estimated price tag of $98 million annually,” reported the Daily Caller.

“California will begin taxing residents who don’t have health insurance in order to help ease the program’s financial burden, creating an individual-mandate penalty. Initially implemented under the Obama administration to help pay for the federal Affordable Care Act, more commonly referred to as Obamacare,” added the Daily Caller. 

So, the tax-paying citizens of Calfornia will essentially pay for the illegals’ healthcare, even though they can’t afford it, or opt-out of healthcare. This is another illegal penalty which is exactly what Obamacare did. If you are a citizen in California, you have fewer rights than illegals.

Expanding California’s Medicaid program to low-income illegals would cost the state about $98 million per year. According to the Associated Press, roughly 90,000 will qualify.

“California believes that health is a fundamental right,” State Sen. Holly Mitchell (D) said, according to the news outlet. This is an absurd statement.

Republicans in Congress worked with President Trump to scrap what they deemed to be the unconstitutional penalty in 2017, however, it appears Gov. Newsom and his cohorts don’t care.

Healthcare, tuition, and access to the internet are not God-given rights as this state senator claims. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the only “fundamental” rights according to the Constitution. Sadly, California is leading the other blue states to do exactly the same thing.

Well, the Golden State is already home to medieval diseases like typhoid and typhus thanks to being run like a Socialist state. 

“Los Angeles has a growing problem with diseases borne by both flea and feces. An LAPD officer was just diagnosed with typhoid fever along with two more from the same workplace displaying symptoms,” reported Forbes. 

Meanwhile, cases of typhus, caused by a different bacterium, have soared in California from 13 in 2008 to 167 in 2018. In addition, there have been outbreaks of hepatitis A, tuberculosis, and staph in L.A. and other West Coast cities.

Why is this happening, and will it spread to other cities? It seems to be a trend in Democratic-led states. 

The city of Los Angeles itself links the disease outbreaks to the area’s growing homelessness problem. It’s the chronically homeless who are at the heart of L.A.’s deteriorating conditions, as well as those in other major West Coast cities — San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland.

Americans weighed in on California’s healthcare debacle, and the majority are utterly livid.

“LA and SF are already full of tent cities. It looks like they’re going for a whole tent state,” tweeted “blockhead J.”

“Congrats Cali, just when I didn’t think the bar could get any lower and leaders any dumber you go ahead and prove me wrong,” tweeted Brian Sterkowitz.

“Do they understand the system? That pulls American tax dollars to support this program. This pulls from public services that the gov provides. Instead of helping AMERICANS with tax money, they are giving funds to people that may not pay taxes. We give enough to NATO and UN,” tweeted Richard M. Simmons.

Those of us who are natives of California are sadly watching as these Democratic rats kill off this once-great state for good. Hard-working people who are staying off welfare but can’t afford health insurance, like young college-aged kids or citizens working two part-time jobs to feed their families, will be the ones paying for illegal immigrants’ health care.

This proves the Democrats are implementing plans to make those right on the edge give up and give in and join the welfare class. Becoming so depressed, many never get off. This is exactly what they want. If what is happening in California scares you, and it should, then imagine this will be the entire nation if the Democrats win back the presidency. Make sure everyone you knows gets this information to ensure President Trump a landslide victory in 2020.
