This is the world we live in today. Ugh.
From Conservative Post:
Democrats, who have a monopoly of power in California politics, are proposing to spend $1 billion a year to provide health care to illegal immigrants living in the state. Medi-Cal, which is the state’s Medicaid program, would eliminate legal residency requirements.
The proposal was offered as part of a $4.3 billion proposal from San Francisco Democrat Assemblyman Phil Ting, the head of the Assembly budget committee. According to NBC Bay Area, 7% of people residing in California lack health coverage, many of them illegal immigrants.
California has already eliminated legal residency requirements for Medicaid coverage for people under 19; Ting’s proposal would extend that to all ages.
According to the Heritage Foundation, the average low-skill immigrant household costs American taxpayers nearly $20,000 per year.
Do Democrats know where money comes from when they vote to increase spending? It slips right out of the pockets of tax payers. Sorry, Dems, but the people of California do NOT want to have their money STOLEN from them in order to pay for illegal immigrants.
