California Set To Provide Medicaid For “Low-Income” Illegal Aliens

The state can’t keep the poop, urine, and used drug needles out of the streets, nor tons of garbage, but, they’re are willing to spend $98 million (which we all know will end up to be much, much more) on giving Medicaid to illegals, prioritizing them over actual citizens

California Dems agree to full health benefits for many low-income illegal immigrants, in swipe at Trump

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.

The plan would take effect in January 2020, the Sacramento Bee reported.

State officials have estimated the benefits would be available to about 90,000 low-income illegal immigrants at a cost of $98 million per year.

“While it’s not all we sought, it will provide a real tangible difference for people, especially for those around and below poverty and for middle income families who don’t get any help under the federal law,” Anthony Wright, executive director of advocacy group Health Access, said. Indeed, a family of four earning as much as six times the federal poverty level — or more than $150,000 a year — would be eligible to get about $100 a month from the government to help pay their monthly health insurance premiums.

Federal money is generally restricted for use for Medicaid and Obamacare for illegal aliens, so, the Trump administration should audit the hell out of California on a constant basis to make sure only state money is used. And where is that money supposed to come from?

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.

Supposedly, 44 million Americans do not have health insurance. So, they’d have to tax them $2 million each per year to pay for this. Though, of course, all 44 million do not live in the People’s Republik Of California.

The Trump administration should start dumping illegal aliens in Sacramento, the capital of California. Let the state deal with them. When they do this kind of stuff, Democrats entice people to come illegally. Further, providing aid in this manner does seem to violate federal law. Perhaps a few people should be charged? Not that anyone has the cajones to do this.

      Why hasn’t trump done something about this ?

      • Professor Hale says:

        What would you like him to do? Serious question. Propose a solution.

        Given:
        1. Being a vet does not make anyone immune from all the conditions of “real life”.
        2. Being a vet doesn’t entitle anyone to being cared for for the rest of their lives at someone else’s expense.
        3. Most “homeless” have severe substance abuse problems, in no way related to military service but in direct representation to the rest of the population.
        4. America has been at record low unemployment during the entire Trump administration. Creating jobs isn’t going to work, since there are already more jobs than people to fill them.

        John,
        Trump can not do something. You see, Trump is the lord and commander of the Federal government not the state. I am not sure exactly how much the contribution is from Federal and state governments, especially following O care. I would hope that the Federal government will charge the California government with fraud for submitting these charges. In the end it is the fault of the California government for creating the problem.

    The funny thing is, that as more Californians are “insured” by medicaid, the fewer Californians will actually get medical treatment. Californian hospitals are already over-run by more patients than they can handle and most of them to not pay enough (medicare/medicade/illegals paying nothing) to cover expenses. Putting overnight patients in the hallways is a common practice in Southern california. So there is no profit motive to open more hospitals. Here in Virginia, we have new hospitals everywhere.

    Teach your math is off again
    To pay for the 98 million budgeted for these illegals the 44 million in the USA would only be taxed $2 each
    Not 2 million

    Wouldn’t that be pretty much ALL of them?

    To hell with the taxpayer! The state does not care to entertain your opinion or objection!
    the only way to stop them is to leave the state
