California, run by the Democrat establishment, is hoping to spend $1 billion a year on illegal immigrants living in the West-coast state so that they may have health care. San Francisco Assemblyman Phil Ting, whom is head of the Assembly budget committee, has proposed this new legislation.
Medi-Cal, the Medicaid program run by the state, would essentially eliminate any legal residency requirements on their forms. This plan was included as part of a $4.3 billion proposal from Ting.
California currently covers illegal immigrants who are 19-years-old or younger. With Ting’s new policy, this coverage will extend to all ages.
NBC has reported that 7% of California residents do not have health care, the majority of these people being illegals.
Seeing how California runs their political game, this policy will most likely happen. Maybe it is time we have a ‘minus one’ in our United States?
My budget blueprint prioritizes
EITC, expanding Medi-Cal to all, early ed, degrees not debt, getting ZEVs on the road, fighting climate change, and reducing crime by ending prison overcrowding & improving recidivism services. More info: https://t.co/vK8Is24E3g pic.twitter.com/S2H5sEug2I
