California to pay full health
benefits for illegal immigrants

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 6/10/2019 12:11:47 AM

Sacramento, Calif. — California will become the first state in the country to pay for some adults living in the country illegally to have full health benefits as the solidly liberal state continues to distance itself from President Trump’s administration. Democrats in the state Legislature reached an agreement Sunday afternoon as part of a broader plan to spend $213 billion of state and federal tax money over the next year. The agreement means low-income adults between the ages of 19 and 25 living in California illegally would be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, the joint state and federal health insurance program

Comments:

Why do "federal dollars" go toward state programs that are abused like this? Article says also that the state will help fund this folly by an extra tax on the uninsured, some who no doubt cannot afford to purchase insurance for themselves.

I live in California. It has become a 3rd world environment and the Democrats don't give a damn because the politicians have such a good pension plan that they will commit economic suicide rather that use common sense and solve problems..

Fabulous. Now maybe all the illegal aliens in my state will head for California. But only CA state money should be used. The rest of us shouldn't have to pay the bill. As they used to say on the Beverly Hillbillies California is the place you ought to be. Swimming pools. Movie stars. Illegal aliens. Liberals. Earthquakes. June bugs. The Manson Family. I'll take LA, Lower Alabama.

This makes me absolutely furious! How can they be allowed to get away with this? I live in California and pay more than $1,000 a month (!!!) for my family's health insurance...and apparently for illegal aliens too. We are literally being robbed by the Democrats in order to support their invasion of backup voters for their socialist dreams. Isn't there anyone in government who will stop this criminal insanity? Or do we have to take up arms to stop this ourselves?

As long as they only tax the people of Cuba-fornia to pay for this, and don't use a single dime of federal tax money for it, they can do whatever they want. Hey, if I'm an illegal alien in Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona, I am heading west on I-10 as we speak to get in on this great deal!!! Sounds like a win/win for those other states and the brain-dead lie-berals in Cuba-fornia. While I feel sorry for all the conservatives in Cuba-fornia, but all I can say is that I-10 goes east too!!!

Once CA becomes truly overwhelmed by their welfare promises, the hand-wringers will demand that Federal moneys be used to pay illegals' expenses. If there was a checkbox on your Federal Tax form to delegate a portion of your tax money to CA, just how many Americans would check that box to send part of their tax money to ILLEGALS. But DON'T WORRY because liberal politicians WON'T ASK YOUR PERMISSION. Instead, they'll send you an email with a photo of a middle finger.

You have to wonder if there will ever be a tipping point. So far, California seems to be doubling down on their stupidity on the assumption that voting in more democrats and higher taxes will improve the situation.

All the years I put into SS and carried health insurance for my family when I was younger and all I had to do was take them to Mexico enter the United States illegally into California and my family could live for free and have all the 'bennies' offered. I am really stupid but too old now to do it. Maybe Donald Trump should go to Mexico and enter the US illegally and the democrats would move to build the wall. Up is down and down is up in the bizzaro state of California.

Federal law enforcement agencies knowingly invite foreigners, often with lengthy criminal records, into the U.S., sponsoring them for visas on the hope they’ll help out with an investigation. But in dozens of those cases the government has lost track of the people and agents were slow in reporting them to Homeland Security, allowing the trail to go cold in efforts to track down, according to a Justice Department inspector general’s report released Wednesday. From 2015 to 2017 the Justice Department sponsored roughly 5,500 immigrants for deferred deportation, an S visa or parole into the U.S. In about 20% of those cases

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott signed Monday a sweeping no-limits abortion bill, creating a “fundamental right” to the procedure as a bulwark against the Supreme Court’s 5-4 conservative majority. Mr. Scott, a pro-choice Republican, signed the bill in private, a marked contrast from the splashy celebration that accompanied New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s signing of legislation in January clearing the path for abortion through 40 weeks’ gestation. Afterward, Mr. Scott posted a statement saying that the legislation, H. 57, “affirms what is already allowable in Vermont—protecting reproductive rights and ensuring those decisions remain between a woman and her health

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg knows firsthand the burden of six-figure student loan debt. He and his husband, Chasten, are far from alone, though, and their personal college indebtedness is helping to keep the issue on the national stage. With loans totaling more than $130,000, they are among the 43 million people in the United States who owe federal student loan debt. The debtors are so numerous and the total debt so high — more than $1.447 trillion, according to federal statistics — that several of the Democratic candidates have made major policy proposals to address the crisis.

Acosta cites instance after instance when this President and many of his staff show that they are bent on interfering with the ability of reporters to bring the public an accurate account of the administration's stewardship.

Freshmen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants Congress to give itself a $4,500 pay raise next year. That would boost her salary to $178,500. And that’s not counting the many perks members of Congress get, all courtesy of taxpayers. But even that isn’t enough for the self-described socialist. AOC scoffed that a 2.5% bump in pay was “not even like a raise.” Before that, she grumbled that her income was merely a “living wage.” She also complained in a tweet that if lawmakers don’t get a raise, it “makes campaign finance reform *harder.* ” And it “increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open.” It makes one wonder if AOC understands

California wants to look after its people, so it keeps expanding its social safety net. It also wants to welcome all comers and so embraces illegal immigrants and protects them in sanctuary cities. To see how this is working out, visit Skid Row in L.A. or neighborhoods in San Francisco or elsewhere where homeless camps are spreading. Caring for all Californians is made harder by the state importing as many non-Americans as possible. It's almost incredible, but also entirely characteristic, that California lawmakers have now decided to give healthcare free to nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants aged 19 to 25.
