During his inauguration speech Monday, newly elected California Gov. Gavin Newson called for forcing every Californian to obtain health insurance, charging each Californian exorbitant premiums for that insurance and then using the money accrued to provide young illegal immigrants with free health care.
According to Fox News, the plan would start by reconstituting Obamacare’s Individual Mandate, which forced every American to either obtain insurance or pay a penalty.
President Donald Trump rescinded the mandate last year. Newson has repeatedly made it clear that he’s neither a fan of the president nor his pro-growth, pro-economy policies.
The revenue collected from reinstituting the mandate would then allow California to both subsidize the health care of “individuals earning up to $72,840 annually and families of four earning up to $150,600” and also expand the state’s government health care program for young illegal immigrants.
Gov. Gavin Newsom who was sworn in today announced proposals to tackle healthcare. Medi-Cal expansion that covers young illegal immigrants, require that all consumers in the state carry health insurance and increase subsidies for middle-class families to help those who need it.

Known as Medi-Cal, the program currently allows low-income illegal immigrants under the age of 19 to benefit from taxpayer-funded “medical care, vision exams, dental care, substance abuse treatment, and mental health services,” according to the California Department of Health care Services.
Newson’s proposal calls for raising the cutoff age to 26,
As radical as the proposal appears, it’s actually the lightweight version of a proposal put out by Democrat legislators that would open up Medi-Cal to all illegal immigrants, regardless of age.
Below is a video of illegal immigration activist Carolina Gamero of the California Immigrant Policy Center praising the radical proposal, saying, “It’s something that is urgently needed across immigrant communities in California.”
Newson’s proposal has received similar praise from the CIPC.
“Making sure healthcare is affordable and accessible for every Californian, including undocumented community members whom the federal government has unjustly shut out of care, is essential to reaching that vision for our future,” the center said in a statement. “Today’s announcement is an historic step on the road toward health justice for all.”
Except for Californians who work long hours for a living. For them Obamacare premiums have consistently skyrocketed every year since the implementation of the failed law in 2013.
It’s in part because of these premium increases — not to mention the additional taxes constantly imposed on them by the state’s legislators — that residents have been fleeing the state in droves.
Fox News notes that around five million Americans moved to California from 2007 to 2016, a larger six million left the state for greener pastures.
What remains unclear is how many of the Americans who left California have been replaced by illegal immigrants. No matter how high the number, Fox political commentator Steve Hilton suspects it’ll only continue to grow as Newson rolls out more and more benefits for them.
One of those potential benefits may one day be single-payer healthcare, which the governor promised during his campaign for election to implement but has noted may take awhile to set up.
“That is going to be huge incentive for even more immigration, because the other component to that promise is that it’ll be open to all residents of California, whether you’re a citizen or not,” Hilton said.
“And that’s going to make it really attractive for even more people to come and get that free health care.”
Which in turn will mean more money taken from hard-working California citizens and offered to those who flagrantly violate America’s federal immigration laws.
While some would classify the governor’s penchant for catering to illegals as the mark of true corruption, he believes the real corruption is happening in the White House.
“We will offer an alternative to the corruption and the incompetence in the White House,” he declared as he was sworn into office Monday.
It’s funny that he feels this way, since it seems like a lot of Americans feel otherwise.
@GavinNewsom wants to help write America’s future???
You are beyond incompetent‼️
California is #1 in:
➡️ Highest Income Tax
➡️Highest in Illegal Immigrants
➡️Highest Gas Prices

Sad day for California. Not for your retirement, good for you! Scary to see my already overly taxed state be told we’ll have an even higher tax burden if we have to fund health care for illegal immigrants and continue with Obama care. Just stop already!!!!!
