California bill gives full healthcare coverage to illegal immigrants. Dems stick it to Trump and taxpayers.

California Democrats continue to prove that they are more interested in showing up President Trump than stepping up for their own residents.

After months of negotiations, Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democrats in the state legislature delivered a bill Sunday as part of the state’s budget that would run counter to the Trump administration’s immigration efforts by making California the first and only state in the nation to pay for the health care of thousands of illegal immigrants.

This'll be fun when the next recession hits. Why don't they just put the illegals in charge of tax collection?

Slick. We have a temporary tax revenue surplus, so they go on a spending spree with this crap. We will be stuck with it even in future years when we have serious deficits.

The thought probably never crossed their mind to, you know, give the taxpayers the money back. Oh no...those evil middle class and rich taxpayers must be squeezed and siphoned for their crimes of economic productivity and responsibility.

We don't have a revenue surplus if you consider the gigantic and unpayable municipal pension liability facing the State and hundreds of cities.

I don’t think Trump gives a shit.

But they stuck it to CA taxpayers. These government fags don’t really know how to earn money. Being in government with crazy benefits and pensions they have no fucking clue how hard it is to make it in private sector.

I would absolutely approve our assemblymen to be paid minimum wage and have Obamacare. So they fucking would see how it’s out there.

A different article notes that the bill covers 100k low-income adults for $98 million.

Hmm.... really? What kind of health insurance costs only $1k/year per person?

Maybe it's just "catastrophic" coverage. In this case, the person could be stabilized and sent back to their home country? (I can hope, right?)

They expect the rest of the country to bail them out, probably via the Fed.

It's all bullshit.

It's all bullshit. Notice how they just passed this right after Trump got Mexico to kill the flow of illegals to our border? No illegals = no insurance that needs to be paid for.

Of course, all the illegals already extent in the US will now flood to CA, tho.

The 19-26 age bracket tends to be pretty healthy. It still seems too cheap though.

On the other hand, $1k per person sounds like a reasonable price to pay in exchange for attracting more illegals from other states and securing their vote.


side topic - I just learned that CA already offers free healthcare to illegals under the age of 19, so this new event just extends that free gravy train to age 26.

how did we get here? does Big Farm lobby CA politicians really well?

Bernie Sanders proposes to cover all illegal aliens across the USA with his single payer plan. After that, all Spanish Indians in Mexico, then Honduras, Guatemala, etc.

But considering Republicans aren't logical they probably can't figure that spending $100 mil on keeping the congestion down at emergency rooms helps all Californians.

But let's make abortion illegal so that we can starve more children to death.

Where are children starving to death? You could use the same logic and say "Lets have unfettered illegal immigration so we can starve more children to death." After all, if one needs abortion to reduce the numbers to prevent starvation, why in hell import millions of poor?

Fifty million Americans live on incomes below the federal poverty level, including one in every four children.

Americans are not illegal immigrants.


Americans suffer in poverty because illegal immigrants either take their jobs outright or undercut their pay. Duh.

Hey RafiMass - can you explain why California has the highest poverty rate in the country?

Not too many Republicans or poor white trash here to blame.

Isn't that the same type of "logical" thinking where California cities handed out free needles to improve the health of drug addicts - now we have massive homeless camps filled with drug addicts in our major cities shitting all over the place and bringing back diseases wiped out in the 19th Century?

How does this happen Rafimass? California is run top to bottom by uber Progressive Democrats with super majorities with some of the highest taxes in the country along with the richest Google billionaires and Hollywood types.

Wow they are homeless and travel around the world? Being as you wrongly believe Cali has highest poverty rate I'm guessing this is more misinformation.


For starters, the bad hygiene in the drug/bum camps created by brain-dead Progressives brings back primitive diseases like Typhus.

Then we have thousands from all around the world crossing our borders every day trying to get free shit in California. Even people from Ebola countries in Africa are making there way through Mexico to get to the US.

Well maybe in new Mexico but I'm guessing Arkansas and Mississippi don't have many illegals. Got any proof?


Former Democrat slave states with lots of minorities living in Democrat run cities kept in poverty by cynically thought out welfare programs that break up the family and keep people in generational poverty needing government handouts.

The governor of New Mexico, born in the USA, claims to be a “Latina” from such a long line of Latinos, that they were Latinos even before there was a Latin America. These people enslaved the Indians, horribly mutilated and tortured them, convinced them that they had always spoken Spanish, even before the arrival of the European mutilators, and now claim to be them. Do the rest of us have to buy into this pathology?

Yes I did. Unfortunately I was speaking of the OFFICIAL poverty rate. Not the SUPPLEMENTAL poverty rate. The only reason California is number 1 in the SUPPLEMENTAL rate is because of the high cost of housing.


What's the point of measuring poverty if you don't consider one of the biggest costs of living (i.e. housing)?

It's like California Democrats crowing that they have a budget surplus this year without taking into account the multi-billion dollar pension liability.

The point is 97% of the 100 poorest counties are in red States.


How many of those counties have big dysfunctional cities that have been run by Democrats for the last half century?

It's like saying Michigan is a "Red State" for voting for Trump and ignoring the shit-holes in Detroit, Flint etc which have been run by Democrats forever......
