If you want to find a state that has completely lost touch with its responsibilities, look no further than California. With each passing day, CA’s leaders prove they have no clue how to lead. With jobs fleeing the state and homelessness at record-breaking highs, the liberal lawmakers of California have decided to push another benefit for illegal aliens. And the taxpayer is being burden with it.
All across America, you can see the impact of Donald Trump’s America-first agenda. Wages are rising. Jobs are coming back. Benefits are increasing. Optimism among employees and small business owners is sky-high.
But not everywhere. Wherever there is rampant, runaway, Democratic leadership, the quality of life for Americans is in the toilet. Places like California, New York, and Illinois—regions overrun with Democrats—face serious problems, with no solutions.
Jobs are scarce. Taxes are through the roof. Housing is nowhere in sight. Homelessness is out-of-control. And in some cases (like San Francisco) the streets literally flow with human feces and used drug needles.
Why is this happening? Because Democrats—in an attempt to spite the president—have been putting illegal aliens ahead of American citizens.
California could be the worst. They forced the minimum wage to $15, driving restaurants and other businesses away. They spend tons of cash on benefits for illegal aliens, while neglecting needs like improved infrastructure and new water reservoirs. Taxes are so high—and housing so limited—many have no choice but to flee.
And their homeless population is so high, it makes up 25% of the entire country’s.
So, what do you think a state like this should do to fix its many, many problems? Perhaps cut back on government spending? Rein in those massive taxes. Clean up their streets and enforce immigration laws. Ensure that hard-working Americans can thrive?
Nope! How about spend billions on free healthcare for illegal aliens!
In a stance to distance itself from President Trump’s administration, California is set to become the first state in the country to pay for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to have full health benefits.
Under an agreement between Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democrats in the state legislature, low-income adults between the ages of 19 and 25 living in California illegally would be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, known as Medi-Cal. The deal emerged as part of a broader $213 billion budget…
To pay for part of it, the state agreed to start taxing people who don’t have health insurance. It’s a revival of the individual-mandate penalty that had been on the books nationwide under former President Barack Obama’s health-care law until Republicans in Congress eliminated it as part of the 2017 overhaul to the tax code.

This is what insanity looks like, my friends. California has been slammed for wasting billions on useless projects. They face serious problems like crumbling damns, bridges, and roads. Homelessness is running away, thanks to legalized drug use and lack of housing. Companies are leaving because of hostile conditions and high taxes.
Yet the Democrats running the state decide to add another burden on CA residents, by providing free healthcare to people who are in the country illegally.
They claim this new measure will only cost the state $98 million a year. Do you have a spare $98 million? How about the taxpayers of California? Nope, I doubt it. And we all know this kind of program will not stay at $98 million.
Once word spreads that illegals will get free healthcare, the state will become a bigger magnet for illegal immigration than it already is. That $98 million will quickly balloon out of control. Mark my words, in short order they will be looking at close to a half a billion price tag.
This was the point all along, to attract more illegals to the state. Democrats want more undocumented aliens entering the country, so they can exploit them for votes. They’ll start in California, then spread to regions nationwide.
This proves Democrats don’t care about what massive damage they cause Americans, our communities, or our democracy. They’re willing to sellout of futures, just to win elections.
It’s disgusting, if you ask me.
