It appears California’s new governor wants to get on Bill de Blasio’s level.
Bill de Blasio recently unveiled his plans to offer “free” healthcare to the uninsured in NYC– including illegal immigrants.
“We also have a way to provide direct health care to a lot of our neighbors who happen to be undocumented,” de Blasio said. “They’re still part of our community. They need health care; their families need health care.”
“We recognized that obviously health care is not just in theory a right,” he continued. “We have to make it in practice a right.”
“Health care is a human right. In this city we are going to make that a reality,” he added.
The move is expected to cost the city $100 million per year. Sorry taxpayers.
He’s not the only one trying to screw citizens over. California Gov. Gavin Newsom is SO on board!

We’re getting straight to work. Tune in now to watch one of my first acts as Governor — a series of bold, first in the nation actions to lower prescription drug prices and move us closer to healthcare for all. –> https://t.co/hBUJFn6xtv

Hours after assuming office, Mr. Newsom released sweeping health care proposals to raise the age limit for illegal aliens covered by Medi-Cal from 19 to 26, which would make California “the first state in the nation to cover young undocumented adults through a state Medicaid program,” according to a Monday release from the governor’s office.
Just to recap:
Using taxpayer money to provide “free” healthcare to illegals = awesome
Using taxpayer money to build a wall = RACIST OMG OMGOMGOMGOMG WOWOWOWOWOWOW.
