Let me think about that….NO!
A new ad campaign has been launched to extend medical coverage to illegal aliens in the state of California.
The California Endowment, a private foundation that advocates for affordable healthcare, wants county-run Medicaid expansion programs called Low-Income Health Programs to be “retooled” to provide insurance for this population – well over 1 million people!
Just what the people of California need, right? First they cut tuition assistance for citizen students by $1.2 billion.
Then they made illegal aliens eligible for in-state tuition and financial aid, with AB131 – signed by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Then tuition assistance was cut for members of the military by sequestration – affecting tens of thousands who live in California.
Now, this week we learned that 20,000 illegal aliens have signed up for tuition assistance in the state – costing taxpayers an estimated $65 million per year – so far – while at the same time the state closed 70 parks at a cost of a mere $11 million.
Citizens get the shaft, and illegal aliens get VIP treatment – that is America’s Sanctuary State.
But now they want even more: free healthcare coverage – on the taxpayer’s dime again (of course). Note that unpaid medical bills from illegal aliens already cost California hospitals $1.25 billion per year. But no matter…California will likely cave in and give even more to their new prized non-citizen constituency. Because in Sacramento the inmates are truly running the asylum.
