Paying for illegals' 'free' health care
by fining Californians who can't afford Obamacare

Original Article

Posted By: PageTurner, 6/10/2019 3:33:30 PM

The leftists running California's one-party state have done it again. They've rolled out a $312 billion budget that includes $98 million for free health care for illegal immigrants under the age of 26. That's a dinner triangle to all able-bodied foreign nationals working off the books that the free ride is about to arrive. According to the Sacramento Bee: The expansion will take effect Jan. 1, 2020 and cost $98 million in the upcoming fiscal year. It will make California the first state to allow undocumented adults to sign up for state-funded health coverage.

Comments:

It's like illegals are running the place and they've got ravenous appetites.

FTA: for free health care for illegal immigrants under the age of 26--- Does that eliminate free health care for natural muiti year tax paying citizens at any age?

Ninety eight million my arse. It's a low ball figure that government uses to make it sound like it won't cost much. Then every Juan, Lolita, and Carlos shows up, and bingo. The cost for healthcare becomes four or five times more.

Leftists have been doing this for decades. The Tobacco Settlement, which was supposed to be a reimbursement from the tobacco companies to pay for the health care of smokers, was (in my state of New Mexico) instead diverted to programs for illegal aliens. The ONLY thing it paid for smokers was smoking cessation drugs, such as nicotine patches, to help us quit. Which was really a kickback to the drug companies for their ceaseless propaganda about the dangers of smoking and second-hand smoke. Leftists and the drug companies got their hands on billions of Tobacco Settlement dollars. Illegal aliens got health care and ESL programs for their kids. Smokers got nothing. Sound familiar?

Saying something is "free" when it is actually paid for by other people is false advertising. I would like a law/policy/regulation adopted that any use of "free" as it pertains to a government program is disallowed and must be replaced by "taxpayer-funded." Then maybe people will get the message.

So they budget $1,000+ per acknowledged illegal. These are the people who go to the emergency room for everything. That costs a lot more than what they budgeted. Total dishonesty about the cost.

It was promoted as healthcare for 'children'. It's amazing that Democrats see a 25-year old as still being a child.

Keep it up California. 2020 Trump wins your popular vote before EVERYBODY leaves. The leftover illegal aliens can form their own country and their wonderful doctors will work for free.

Wait a minute...if healthcare is free then why does anybody have to pay for it? I assume doctors and hospitals will stop and equipment manufacturers will donate their products. Problem solved.

The question is will President Trump and the UniParty Congress allow California to use Federal funds to give illegal aliens “free” healthcare benefits?

OK, its out in the open, the Communists think they have control of California. Please get off the couch, join, call, protest, write, and tell these anti Americans we will not stand for this. Join a local Republican organization and fight these communists. This law will devastate the working people and take your tax money for illegal aliens.

In the wake of layoffs of more than 1,000 journalists from BuzzFeed, Verizon Media Group (owner of outlets like HuffPost) and Gannett earlier this year, #LearntoCode became a controversial phrase tweeted at and about those who lost their jobs. One side argued it was harassment. Twitter took this view, suspending accounts of those using the slogan. Another side contended the phrase was a sardonic expression of just deserts for a class of professionals unsympathetic to the loss of jobs in industries like coal mining, thanks to clean energy ideals. A month after these layoffs, Investor’s Business Daily quietly shuttered its own opinion section.
Camp in American Politics 0 replies

What is this thing called camp, and who can solve its mystery? In 1964, the 33-year-old American writer Susan Sontag, the high priestess of the New York intellectual world, published her iconic essay on “the sensibility, unmistakably modern, that goes by the name of ‘camp.’” Without precise or exact definition, camp indicates love of the unnatural, artifice, exaggeration, esoteric, something of a private code. Camp is discernable in objects, movies, clothes, furniture, popular songs, novels, buildings, and people. In people, the sensibility is markedly attenuated and strongly exaggerated, playful, anti-serious, attempts to be extraordinary.

At roughly the same time one Republican said he was thinking about co-sponsoring a carbon tax bill, another was tacitly telling Prince Charles to buzz off with his crackpot global warming theories. Thankfully, the latter is president and can veto lousy legislation as well as withdraw from counterproductive international climate pacts. Some Republicans in Congress, prominent among them Utah Sen.

Is there anything Joe Biden can't do? Joe Biden told an audience in Ottumwa, Iowa Tuesday that his White House would "cure" cancer should he beat President Trump in 2020. "I've worked so hard in my career, that I promise you, if I'm elected president you're gonna see single most important thing that changes America, we're gonna cure cancer," Biden said to applause. First he's teaching Detroit's illiterate single moms the easy-peasy art of computer coding, now he's promising to conquer cancer. Good thing we have Old Joe, otherwise cancer might never be cured.

Doctors and hospitals are in the gunsights of many Democrats who want Medicare-for-all as a draconian price control scheme by government over all medical care in the US. Hospitals are told they charge too much and doctors are vilified for earning too much.

The Democrat-led House has been notoriously do-nothing about anything other than attempting to impeach President Trump. No budget, no promised infrastructure bills, no health care reforms, not even an explicit condemnation of anti-Semitism, and shamed by socialist-led Mexico for doing zero about a massive migrant surge pouring over our southern border. Actually, on that front, less than zero, given that they passed a bill to incentivize additional illegal immigration. A real bright bunch, and quite likely to be thrown out come 2020, given such a record reflected in their 20% approval rating.

AT readers don’t need to be introduced to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, the desperation measure concocted by the Democrats in an effort to make an end run around the Electoral College by pledging states to abide by the popular vote. Fourteen states, along with D.C., have so far passed the compact. One curious provision is that the compact does not go into effect until the number of electoral votes involved reaches 270 – a simple majority which would guarantee a candidate’s victory. The number of electoral votes controlled as of now is 189 – clearly, the promoters have been concentrating on large jurisdictions.

President Trump walked hard and carried a big stick this week to bludgeon Mexico into honoring its January 2019 deal to halt illegal immigrants at its southern border. As a key implementation requirement in President Trump’s October 2018 restructure of NAFTA, a side deal titled the Migrant Protection Protocols was subsequently signed by newly inaugurated Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in January 2019. The MPP committed Mexico to increase security along its border with Guatemala and to shelter returned illegal aliens caught sneaking across the U.S. Southern Border “for the duration of their immigration proceedings.”

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

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
