CA Voters Not Happy With Free Medical For Illegals

Authored by Sarah Cowgill via LibertyNation.com,

Free health care for illegals may have Gov. Newsom and the Dems grinning as the voters grimace…

As the California state legislature and Gov. Gavin Newsom dislocate their shoulders in the hearty backslapping of their self-congratulatory moment in American history, the rest of the nation is snarling and spitting over the lunacy of the left coast Democrats.  That is, according to the new Rasmussen Reports poll, which asked if illegal immigrants should receive free health care.

The answer was a resounding no.  No way, no how, nuh-uh, nada.

It was a brief two-question survey that spoke volumes: “Do you favor or oppose making health care benefits available to young low-income illegal immigrants in your state?  Is it offensive to refer to someone who has entered this country illegally as ‘an illegal immigrant?’”

Out of 1,000 online and telephone respondents, “31% of Likely U.S. Voters favor making health care benefits available to low-income illegal immigrants under the age of 26 in their state. Fifty-five percent (55%) are opposed, while 13% are not sure.”  One can only imagine the responses to question number two.

The only surprising statistic is that 13% had not yet picked a side in what might be the watershed issue for 2020 presidential candidates.

Force Fed Mandates Gag Americans

Last week, Newsom’s quest for universal healthcare – including illegal residents – was passed by the legislature as part of a $215 billion budget.  He was self-assured and puffing in his peacock fashion, declaring, “We’re going to get it. We’re committed to universal health care. Universal health care means everybody…We will lead a massive expansion of health care, and that’s a major deviation from the past.’’

Laurel Lucia, health care program director at the University of California-Berkeley Labor Center, gushed excitement at expanding Medi-Cal to illegal immigrants while forcing taxpayers to foot the bill through individual-mandate penalties.  “The bigger reason to do this is about values,” says the woman who seems not to care about legal citizens in need of health care benefits.

And to boil it down in dollars, for those Californians who do not buy insurance, they will now be hit with a penalty of $695 or 2% of their household income, whichever figure is higher.

But Lucia went a tad over the top with “What kind of state do we want to live in?”

Funny you should ask. Many Californians – and other Americans, for that matter – are aghast that 130,000 plus people in the Golden State are homeless, living in undeniable squalor, and not only contracting highly contagious medieval diseases but spreading them to others. Perhaps the state should round up the unwashed American masses, clean them up, and give them free healthcare so the rest of the nation can avoid the Black Death.

Newsom’s Noose

Gov. Newsom campaigned in part on universal healthcare, and it’s no secret he has his sights on a national run in the future – perhaps president in 2024 depending on whether President Trump trumps the progressive left in the 2020 winner take all contest.  But protecting illegal aliens before addressing the most significant crisis his state faces – homelessness – is not going to help him avoid the political gallows.

Gavin Newsom

The state’s current crisis of reality — highest poverty rate in the country, no affordable housing, taxpayers fleeing to points east, and vicious identity politicsranking California much further left of the nation as a whole — are becoming serious millstones for this progressive governor.

Add to the list of Newsom’s liabilities, the boilerplate individual health plan in California starts with premiums of more than $5,000 a year and annual deductibles can skyrocket to several thousand dollars each year.  Which means folks are going to have to decide to pay thousands for private health plans or be taxed in penalty thousands to pay for illegal aliens.

Perhaps the good governor should take stock of what Americans think about his plan to give aid to illegals as his fellow countrymen suffer on his once gold-paved streets.  He may find his holier-than-thou ideology could soon blow up on him — and signing this budget might be the match he strikes and regrets.

    Gee, Odumbass Care (ACA) was and is a total failure so let’s do it here in Californi-Mexico that makes perfect sense and should work!
    How it stupid and insane!
    What the hell, are they that totally blind that they can’t see how devistating this will be to the state overall?
    And how can ANY American politician step over their own citizens to give to ILLEGALS?
    Makes absolutely no sense, but they continue to do it!
    Even communism didn’t do that!

      California’s people are getting just what they wanted by voting for socialist morons like Pelosi, the governor and all the other liberal dumocrats they put in office. Vote them out or take them out and this stupidity will end. Along with that put people in office who respect the laws of the country and the constitution.

        Unfortunately, those of us that did not vote for newcum are stuck with peloser’s nephew. I think they both share the same idiot brain cell between them and their diseased brain cell seems to be spreading to the moron voters of CA.

        Though I totally agree with you, I can’t help but feel that when those Socialist dictators get control, voters are going to play hell getting them out. They lie, cheat, steal and no doubt would kill to stay in power.

          How are we going to vote them out when there is so much corruption and fraud?
          They control nearly every office and government job in California.
          They give us a choice of two Democrats on the ballot.
          They harvest votes and do the counting of ballots.

      I agree with you Walt Walters: If you vote democrat you get to have your income redistributed to people who don’t like to work. You deserve it you vote for it. The rest of us think you are stupid but you vote democrat so there you go.

      We all know that voting democrat is like taking drugs, smoking, taking drugs and smoking pot. You start when you are young because you think it will make you cool then you get addicted or it is just easier to keeping doing it. Just vote that automatic “D” then i don’t have to think or do any research or figure out what might be best for me and the country. Your just addicted simpleton morons. Vote democrat: be a cool fool too. Just know we are laughing at you.

      I have no sympathy for people addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling, or voting democrat. the are started because they wanted to be cool and on the “in” crowd. So live with your “in crowd” results and stop asking me to pay for your “in crowd” disaster. ?how about trying less hard to be cool dumb shits.

      So live with you money being taking from you by white guys who are ashamed of being white and black people who hate white people but claim they aren’t racists and Hispanics who belong to LA Raza, and Hispanic supremacist group and native Americans who claim to be more noble then white people while living off tax payer money. You all a bunch of screwed up lying jerks and you all know it. So yeah vote the big “D” and watch them steal your income and give it to people who hate you, are embarrassed or themselves and don’t want to work. Good thinking dummies.

      You get what you vote for. A lot of voters should have considered this a long time ago before the state was set on its course for bankruptcy. I got out early in 2002.

      How can California voters react and recalling the state elected officials who passed this insane law to allow the illegal immigrants free Medicaid or Medicare? Recall Governor Newsom and the rest of the State elected legislatures. They should solve the homeless problem before favoring illegal immigrants.

    I would renounce my citizenship before I would subjugate myself to the incredible taxation of California. Everyone knows illegals have it better – no taxes, but they get drivers license, vote, all the benefits of citizenship without the downsides.

    American citizenship means very little now that illegal aliens can vote in national elections. Don’t tell me or Colorado they can’t. They cost us a senate seat voting in CO.

    Trump rolled back the onerous individual mandate and Pelosis nephew reinstates it by fiat. California isn’t a state, it is a fiefdom where citizens have no rights. Illegal aliens, gangs, drugs, disease and filth are rampant in a state once considered an example for America.

    Newsome thinks Cali is consequential enough that the rest of the country will automatically by into his liberal bullshit, think again. The best thing Cali can do for the country is to fall into the ocean asap.

      There are millions of us here in California who are against every democrat in the state, including our “innocent liberal neighbors”. We never vote for democrats, ever. My wife and I have a battle plan in case of a home invasion by Mexicans or any and all other assorted undesirable “criminal humans”. I didn’t serve in the Navy offshore Vietnam 50 years ago to see my home state (and the country) occupied by thieving garbage cultures and affirmed by their political buddies in Sacramento. Neither did my Marine, Army, Air Force and Coast Guard vet friends enlist to allow un-American cultures to swarm over us. I’m nearly 70 and in fine health. CW2 is coming. To defend my home and family, I’ll do what Sir Winston Churchill said in July 1940, referring to the expected German invaders: “Take one with you”. For me, that would be, at a minimum, “times 10”.

        As a 72 yo disabled veteran of Vietnam and the U.S.Navy I stand with you all the way. On the east coast and can’t get a CCP but can get a cross bow and bolts, which are legal. Fast quiet and deadly with no tracking or permit. I PROTECT MY OWN AND MY COUNTRY. As a shirt I have says. My oath of enlistment has no expiration date. I will stand and fight.

    The right to vote is one of the rights that citizens have. Non-citizens CANNOT legally vote. Every time an illegal immigrant votes, that person has cast an illegal vote and those politicians that allow this should be charged will a violation of federal voting laws.

    Why the hell is this happening (illegal immigrants voting) and why are voting officials and their political conspirators noe being charged?
