Being on the brink of financial collapse is not stopping California officials from expanding healthcare for illegal aliens in its latest budget signed by Governor Gavin Newsom (D). “Newsom last month proposed providing $98 million a year to cover low-income illegal immigrants between the ages of 19 and 25,” according to Fox News, but has now signed off on a “more extreme state Assembly’s bill [which proposed covering all illegal immigrants over the age of 19 living in California]-a proposal that would cost an estimated $3.4 billion.” Then again, that may be just a drop in the bankruptcy bucket considering the Third World diseases flooding into the Sanctuary State.

I mean it shouldn’t shock us, but for those who are opposed to this nonsense, and there are probably quite a few in California, it’s just another sign that this progressive cesspool only becomes more filthy with the latest $215 billion budget. It’s been signed into law. Nothing we can do now. The California Republican Party is all but dead and virtual single-party rule has allowed for this insanity to flourish unchecked. It’s part of the illegal alien lust that has driven California Democrats for years. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed off on the budget last week (via Fox News):
California’s new budget, signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom … expands health care for illegal immigrants and includes a penalty for people who do not purchase health insurance.
The provisions were among several measures in the $214.8 billion operating budget that Newsom signed before the midnight deadline. It is the largest in the state’s history, according to the Los Angeles Times.
