California was poised Monday to become the first state to provide health care coverage to young, low-income adults living in the country illegally after legislative leaders provided a thumbs-up to Gov. Gavin Newsom's $98 million plan targeting almost 100,000 low-income adults.

AND:

The proposal also makes California the first state to subsidize insurance for middle-income families. A family of four earning as much as six times the federal poverty level – or more than $150,000 a year – would be eligible for $100 a month from the government to help pay for insurance. Newsom had initially balked at the subsidy but ultimately relented.

“California believes that health is a fundamental right,” said state Sen. Holly Mitchell, a Los Angeles Democrat who led the budget negotiations.

But to pay for part of it, the state will begin taxing people who don’t have health insurance. The plan is similar to a part of President Barack Obama’s health care law that Republicans in Congress eliminated as part of the 2017 overhaul to the tax code.



So give illegals free Health Care and tax (fine) legal residents who can not afford it!

We are giving more "Foreign Aid" inside our own borders now, than outside. Whatever amount CA spends on Illegals, their Federal Appropriations should be reduced accordingly....otherwise, every one of us U.S. Taxpayers is forced to pay CA's debts (what else is new? LOL).

I was curious as to how it would be funded. When I read the funding scenario, I right away thought of Obaba and his fine the insured. I'm sure California can afford that. Will be more people moving out soon.

Correction, he thinks it's a fundamental right for anyone on the planet to come and suckle at the teet of their bloated pig government. Health is just the shallow excuse to provide it.

If he thinks "health" should be free because it's a "right," then where's my free guns?

Do the unborn have that right?

And yet another reason why I want so badly to get the hell out of this state. There is also a legal defense fund that has been setup by the state to help illegals fight ICE.

Newsom also wanted to add a tax to everyone's water bill to pay for "distressed communities" that don't don't have access to clean drinking water. The CA legislature surprisingly shot down the idea of a new tax, and instead passed spending legislation that raided an existing funding source earmarked for other uses.

CA already has a 21 billion dollar surplus, thanks to former Gov. Brown jacking up our sales tax, vehicle registration fees, gas tax... and yet these jackasses want to add an additional 2 billion in new taxes.

I'm in Canada where this already happens, but what I always scream in my head is " how about health care that actually works for Veterans who risked their lives for our freedom!" Makes my blood boil.

Conrad, I’ve heard this before, that the state is actually riding on a cash surplus, but at the same time you hear the state is going bankrupt due to illegals and socialist programs. I have family and friends living in CA, but even though they complain, they still linger, some even seem not to notice what’s going on, unless what we see on multiple news reports about the homeless, illegals, lawless gangs, over crowed prisons and other situations really isn’t true. You’re at ‘ground zero’ being in the Bay area, what do you see and how can so much be wrong in the state and it still be able to maintain a healthy state treasury? :confused:

I find it truly amazing and sad that this nations Gov.(state and federal) care more about ILLEGALS than their own citizens. It should NOT be tolerated and American taxpayers should be outraged at this. I feel horrible for the few conservatives living in Commiefornia that have to put up with this because the Liberals have overrun the state turning it into one big 3rd world toilet. Yet they feds and the American public allow this to occur. Wake up America your losing your country!!!!!!!

Yeah, the more of this kind of shine-ola they put into law the more working producers will flee and the more non-producing gimme-dats will move there.
How long do you think THAT can be sustained?
