California to Provide Free Health Care for Illegal Immigrants

The State of California passed a new healthcare plan last week that will support and expand Obamacare to allow free health care to some illegal aliens. This move will make California the first state in the US to provide free health care for illegal alien adults.

This approval has been a top priority for the state’s new governor, Gavin Newson, who has a track record of securing rights for illegal aliens in California. In fact, Governor Newson’s very first act as California’s governor was to propose using the state’s Medicaid program to cover “young undocumented adults” so that they would have health care.

The plan has some interesting details about how the state will restore the individual mandate in Obamacare, as well as who will be covered for healthcare in the state. There is also concern about how the state will even be able to afford this extra coverage, which means that current, legal residents of California will most likely have to subsidize the coverage.

The state of California currently provides Medicaid, called Medi-Cal in the state, to children of illegal aliens up to the age of 19. The new plan that includes health care for illegal alien adults, will make California the first state to provide this coverage. It is estimated that the new plan will cover over 90,000 people and cost around $98 million each year. The free coverage and new benefits are very attractive to illegals, and is being used as an incentive for illegal aliens to come to the US and live in California, where almost a quarter of our country’s illegal aliens currently live.

In order to make their plan work, California will restore the individual mandate in Obamacare. This means that Californians will once again face a penalty if they do not buy the required health insurance. This is the same penalty that President Trump worked so hard to eliminate in the GOP’s 2017 tax reform bill. This means that the legal residents of the state of California will now be made to subsidize illegal aliens. This seems to be a huge step back for legal residents of the state, who will now once again be penalized for not having insurance coverage and be expected to help pay for the health care of illegals.

According to Fox News, “Families of four earning as much as $150,500 a year would get help paying monthly health insurance premiums.” This plan is a serious undertaking, even for the state of California. The state does not currently offer “Medicare for All” even though leaders are all for doing so and went as far as to pass this proposal in the California State Senate in 2017. To this day, California has not seemed to solve the issue though, about how exactly they would be able to pay for it.

None citizens get free health care while citizens have to pay. Anyone think this is wrong beside me?

California the northern state of Mexico and the US government didn't get a dime for it. The US federal government should stop providing any federal funds for medicare to the state of CA. Just like when states lost highway funds for not setting a 55 mph speed limit.

This is how you buy votes.

It was said, by whom I no longer recall, That the end will come when the people realize they can vote themselves stuff (that's not the actual quote).

What we are see here is the beginning of the end. The people of California have found that they can vote themselves free stuff. By electing the right person or group of people.

Sconny, I'm guessing you're referring to Alexander Tytler (see quote and link below). It kinda dovetails with what you're saying. On a side note, I thought there was a federal component of Obamacare. Wouldn't that prevent or restrict such an opening? I don't think it will stop CA but am curious.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.”
― Alexander Fraser Tytler
