California has one of the worst budgetary crises in the nation, but now the Democrats, led by Gov. Gavin Newsom, want to spend billions to give illegal aliens free healthcare.
The free healthcare appears as one of Newsom’s newest measures in his proposed 2022-23 budget. But it is nothing new for the foolish, spend-crazy Democrats in California. They have been pushing this idea for several years, but have yet to get it done.
Newsom’s obscene $213 billion plan also includes absurd costs for billions to “buy back” guns and billions more for useless climate change policies.
“Governor Newsom’s Blueprint will make California the first state in the nation to offer universal access to healthcare coverage for all state residents, regardless of immigration status,” Newsom’s plan says.
“With major new investments to tackle the greatest threats to our state’s future, the California Blueprint lights the path forward to continue the historic progress we’ve made on our short-term and long-term challenges, including responding to the evolving pandemic, fighting the climate crisis, taking on persistent inequality and homelessness, keeping our streets safe and more,” Newsom said in a statement. “As California’s robust recovery continues, we’re doubling down on our work to ensure all our communities can thrive.”
Newsom spoke about his universal healthcare plan on Monday:
“Here’s the big one: California is poised to be, if this proposal is supported, the first state in the country to achieve universal access to health coverage,” Newsom. “So, what does that mean? It means full-scope Medi-Cal, including long-term care, IHSS [In-Home Supportive Services], and behavioral health to all low-income Californians, regardless of immigration status.”
Newsom is also pushing more sure-to-fail gun control measures.
This is the failed Democrat Party on steroids.
