While there are many different opinions on how to “fix” our healthcare system, there are some clear examples of healthcare proposals that are making the problem worse. Enter California.
Newly elected California Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed a new budget that would expand health care coverage to illegal aliens.
The Washington Times explains why Governor Newsom touted the proposal shortly after taking office.
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.
In addition to the immigration debate, the burden on taxpayers to provide subsidized Medi-Cal health care to a population of illegal aliens, which could drastically increase in the coming decades, is reckless to say the least.
