What is wrong with the leaders in California?
The state is bleeding population as people flee, they have the highest taxes in the country, and a massive homeless problem.
What are they doing? Offering free healthcare to illegal immigrants.
Nothing Says ‘Happy New Year’ Quite Like Giving Taxpayer-Funded Health Care to Illegal Aliens
Now that it is officially 2020, illegal alien adults in California are now eligible for Medi-Cal, the state’s health care system for low-income families. Starting January 1 – today – Medi-Cal is now extended to illegal aliens ages 19 to 26.
Before today those under the age of 19 were able to receive Medi-Cal benefits, the Modesto Bee reported.
Before the new legislation took effect, quite a few illegal aliens were receiving limited Medi-Cal benefits (basically emergency services). Now they are able to receive full-scope Medi-Cal benefits, which include preventative and primary care on top of emergency services.
Those who were in the system receiving limited scope benefits received letters saying that, at the start of the new year, they would have full access to Medi-Cal benefits. Lucky them, right?
Officials in the state estimate that roughly 138,000 illegal alien adults will receive full-scope benefits under the medical plan. What that actually translates to can vary once coverage begins.
Before the Medi-Cal expansion kicked in, once an illegal alien turned 19, they would lose their benefits. Now that is extended until they are 26.
This is the future liberals want for the rest of the country:
Starting tomorrow, low-income, undocumented young adults in our state will have access to Medi-Cal! What an amazing way to start the new year.

“DHCS estimates about 90,000 young adults statewide will gain access to full-scope Medi-Cal coverage in the first year as a result of the expansion.” https://t.co/0rUQ9mDJfz

My sister in law was on Medi-Cal here in Ca. She was denied surgery by the government ( Ca ) for stage 4 Cancer because she was going to die anyway. Her doctor had to sneak her into the hospital to preform the surgery. Don’t trust you government to do the right thing.
