California Makes MASSIVE Announcement About ILLEGALS and OBAMACARE

By

California has outed itself as a renegade state in many ways. And it’s now leading the charge to defy President Trump’s policies regarding illegal aliens and Obamacare.

A new state bill aims to provide public health care for all 38 million people living in California, including the millions of illegal immigrants.

Mercury News reports:

In a surprise move made in response to President Donald Trump’s push to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, two California lawmakers Friday introduced legislation to replace private medical insurance with a government health care system covering all 38 million Californians — including its undocumented residents.

“We’ve reached this pivotal moment and I thought to myself: ‘Look, now more than ever is the time to talk about universal health care,’” one of Senate Bill 562’s authors, Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, said in an interview Friday.

The Healthy California Act, co-authored by Sen. Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, was submitted just before the deadline for new legislation. It doesn’t yet offer many specifics other than the lawmakers’ intent: to create a so-called single-payer system that would pay for coverage for everyone.

But there are some GLARING problems.

First, California’s infrastructure is crumbling, as evidenced by its inability to effectively respond to massive storms over the past week.

Second, the state is bleeding money. It doesn’t have the budget for such a program, and the bill introduced by Democrats fails to explain just how it would be funded.

Third, recent polls reveal that nearly half of all Californians, including Democrats, DON’T LIKE OBAMACARE, and are therefore unlikely to support a new program modeled after it.
