Default Illegal residents in California will now get health coverage via taxing legals

Title is slightly misleading but it gets the point across.

https://www.apnews.com/63cbb00caf6343159da053666c6dd539

Quote:
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California will become the first state to pay for some adults living in the country illegally to have full health benefits as the solidly liberal bastion continues to resist the policies of Republican President Donald Trump’s administration.

Democrats in the state Legislature reached an agreement Sunday afternoon as part of a broader plan to spend $213 billion of state and federal tax money over the next year. The legislature is expected to approve the deal this week. The agreement means low-income adults between the ages of 19 and 25 living in California illegally would be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, the joint state and federal health insurance program for the poor and disabled.

Only those in that age group whose incomes are low enough to qualify for the program would get the health benefits. State officials estimate that group will be about 90,000 people at a cost of $98 million per year.
The state Senate had wanted to expand the proposal to include adults 65 and older, but the Newsom administration argued it would cost too much.

“California believes that health is a fundamental right,” said state Sen. Holly Mitchell, a Los Angeles Democrat who led the budget negotiations.

The move is part of a larger effort to make sure everyone in California has health insurance. The proposal also makes California the first state in the country to help middle-income families pay their monthly health insurance premiums. It means 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.

But to pay for part of it, the state will begin taxing people who don’t have health insurance. It’s a revival of the individual mandate penalty that had been law 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.

Republicans on the legislative committee negotiating the budget voted against the proposal, arguing it was not fair to give health benefits to people who are in the country illegally while taxing people who are here legally for not purchasing health insurance.

I posted this yesterday in the Trump thread.

Constitutionality is questionable.

Plus, it's going to annoy the people who have to pay for illegal aliens to have health insurance while they can't afford it for themselves.

I don't understand why we, as a nation, spend hundreds of millions dollars on illegal aliens when we have millions of impoverished legal citizens. I don't mean to sound cold-hearted, but shit. Let's get our own house in order first.

It's tens of billions, not hundreds of millions.

And California is practically bankrupt, they should be funneling that money to pay down some debt.

Trump needs to cut off ALL federal funding to that state immediately. Apparently they are well enough to give taxpayer money away like that.

Not that I completely agree with this but these people were getting healthcare anyways from the hospitals. Non-profit hospitals bear this burden and then have to act as the safety net. This has more to do in general with the large amount of our population that is uninsured even if they are Citizens.

This is full California medicaid for any low income illegal alien between the ages of 19 and 25. It's more than the usual go into a hospital for the flu and get treated kind of thing.

I doubt this is the end of Cali. giving tax payer dollars to illegals. It's just one step in a bigger plan.

On another topic, Cali. is asking for $400 million from the federal government to clean up Mexican waste water runoff that has polluted California. They're not asking Mexico for the money.

The people that vote for the politicians that pass this shit should not be allowed to leave the state they voted to fuck up. Suffer your consequences.
