Can California Democrats get any dumber? In the Age of Trump, they’ve chosen to jump off the deep end.
Their entire platform is a radical reaction to the rest of the country’s MAGA agenda. Now things are about to get much worse.
Over the last two years, we’ve seen California democrats try to destroy the state. Under Gov. Brown, they’ve pushed for policies that reward criminals and punish citizens. Mayors and tipping off criminals to ICE raids. Minimum wage hikes are driving businesses to other states. And their drug policies are flooding the streets with homeless.
It’s clear California’s liberals care more about criminals than tax-paying citizens. Now a new policy will put a heavy burden on the few people who still work hard in the state. And give major benefits to illegal aliens.
California Democrats are reportedly pushing to give full healthcare benefits to illegal immigrant adults, which would mean that the Golden State not only may have to raise taxes but will also be a magnet for even more illegal immigrants.
According to a Monday Politico report, state Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) is leading the charge by reportedly arguing that “California needs to be a laboratory for social change by taking the lead on progressive causes.”
The cost to expand Medicaid coverage to adult illegal immigrants in California is reportedly projected to cost $3 billion annually.
California Governor Jerry Brown, who extended Medi-Cal coverage to illegal immigrant children in 2015, has not commented on the pending measures but “is required by law to sign or veto bills passed this session by Sept. 30, just five weeks before the midterm elections.”
So, let’s get this straight. Tax-paying, hard-working Americans… they get the shaft. But illegals who jeopardize our national security… they get free healthcare.
Okay, California. Are you pretending to care about your residents anymore? Are you so deranged that you put the well-being of outsiders before your own people? Or are leaders like Jerry Brown so upset over Trump, that they’d torch their own state?
Probably a little bit of all of those things. We know that government-funded healthcare is a disaster. Just look at how bad things can get in countries with socialized medicine (spoiler: long wait times, denied coverage, and babies dying). Not to mention the incredible cost to taxpayers.
Yet California is ignoring all those things, just to send a message to the rest of America. That message being: “We’re willing to destroy California just to stick it to President Trump.”
Has a state ever been this antagonistic towards the White House since the Civil War? I don’t think so. California is sending a clear signal that they don’t care about the needs of Americans. They are putting criminals and aliens first. Even if that means ruining the state.
