pinko California dimocrats Plan to Extend Medicaid to Foreign Invaders

A California lawmaker has pledged to re-introduce a bill that would allow adults who live in the state illegally to receive medical care paid for by the government.

State Assembly member Joaquin Arambula, a Democrat and a doctor, announced the plans Monday as the legislature convened at the state capitol, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Should the bill advance, California would become the first state to extend Medicaid coverage regardless of immigration status. State projections for last year's bill found that 1.8 million people in California are uninsured and reside there illegally; roughly 1.2 million would qualify for Medi-Cal, the name of the state's Medicaid program.

The legislation is being introduced ahead of a new governor entering office. Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom initially had vowed to seek a single-payer healthcare system for the state, but tamped down his rhetoric later in the campaign, focusing instead on extending coverage to the uninsured. Single-payer systems refer to one source of payment for all medical services, usually the government.

2. Perhaps we should just provide Medicaid to all the residents of

Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua. We could also give them welfare, food stamps and free college education. Then perhaps they would stay in their native countries rather than invade ours. That way we would not have to build a wall.

Of course the big drawback is that they might not be able to vote for Democrats while living in their home countries. If so, Democrats would have no reason to sign on to my plan.

Of course this is
