California becomes 1st state to give taxpayer-funded health benefits to illegal immigrants.
The measure signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom extends coverage to low-income, undocumented adults age 25 and younger for the state’s Medicaid program. They expect the plan to cover about 90,000 people and cost taxpayers $98 million.
Why are Democrats are pandering to illegal immigrants?

Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., signed a bill into law on Tuesday making young illegal immigrants eligible for the Medicaid program in California, making it the first state to offer such taxpayer-funded health benefits to low-income adults age 25 and younger regardless of their immigration status.
State officials said they expected the plan to cover about 90,000 people and cost taxpayers $98 million. California already covered children 18 and younger regardless of immigration status.
The law will not give health insurance benefits to everyone 25 and younger, but only those whose income is low enough to qualify.
Newsom and fellow Democrats in the state legislature said they planned to expand coverage to more adults in the years to come. More
Wait a minute. So we are helping this state out with funds to fix earthquake damage with our tax dollars while it covers insurance for illegal aliens? I can’t even afford health insurance for myself. Bizarre.
All federal Medicaid funds should be halted immediately. California wants them, let California cure them with California dollars, not mine.
Does anybody get the correlation that Obamacare fined American citizens for not buying insurance but now they want to give it to illegal immigrants for free?
California needs to secede from our Union if they want to support illegal aliens with taxpayer funded money! A lot of this money comes from the Federal Government so we all are paying for this crap! Get them out and build that wall around them too!https://t.co/UFndoLyfXI

That’s what you get for voting who you voted for, California! No one to blame but yourselves!

Buying illegals votes with taxpayers money for the 2020 election. While there are 1000’s of homeless tents in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and other major cities https://t.co/hGZfEuayXq

Obviously this is a terrible idea, but two questions anyway: 1) Anyone think the cost won’t be much more than planned? 2) How will they verify income of the illegal aliens? https://t.co/CBXTPAGKBw #PeopleGetTheGovtTheyDeserve
