California's Gavin Newsom campaigns for free health care for illegals

Gavin Newsom, leading candidate for governor of California, and a Democrat, has a new goodie on offer: free health care for all illegals.
The former mayor of San Francisco said so in this podcast, explaining that there is no reason not to "wait around" to extend Medi-Cal coverage to anyone who asks, regardless of immigration status.
San Francisco is the only universal health care system for all undocumented residents [sic] in America, very proud of that.  We proved it could be done without bankrupting the city.  I'd like to see that we can extend that to the rest of the state.
Free health care for illegals!  Just like what Hugo Chávez offered in Venezuela!
The results speak for themselves.
The message is out now for everyone from Tijuana to Tierra del Fuego that a health care free ride awaits all comers in California, so long as you can keep your income down and work for low, illegal alien-style wages.  Do that, and any health care you may need, whatever your pre-existing conditions, is free, in your choice of California's world-class facilities.  No taxes paid in necessary.  The rest of us will pay for it via higher taxes, as well as foot our own vast Obamacare bills on top.
It's hard to say how that will go over among voters, given that so many are so resolutely blue in orientation (Newsom won 64% of the California vote in July's primary, compared to GOP winner John Cox's 36%), and at last count, Newsom was well ahead in the polls (although those polls are a couple months old).  One thing we do know is that Democratic candidates in at least southern California, up until now, have been keeping illegal aliens off the table as an issue, knowing how bad it could be for winning even Democratic votes.  As I noted on the day before California's June 6 primary:
The airwaves in Southern California are flooded with Democratic candidate ads, with most openly touting extremely loony far-left positions – promises of free health care for all, free college for all, beefed up public funding for Planned Parenthood, full gun control, pretty much the full Bernie Sanders plate of pie-in-the-sky goodies.  Democrats, whether in the House, Senate, governor, or assembly races, are all openly offering all the free stuff on the far left's wish list, not holding back at all.  Fiscal discipline isn't in fashion with this bunch.  ...
There's one topic among these offerings that isn't being touched – not even in one campaign ad:
Illegal immigration.
I'm guessing that Newsom must think he has voters to burn and will win the governorship anyway, even if a large chunk of voters peel off toward Republican John Cox.
But it's significant that he's billing himself as a fiscal conservative, who's somehow able to pull a rabbit out of the hat and finance illegals, which he says he "achieved" in San Francisco as a proud accomplishment.  The facts don't stand up to that – he left the city deeply in debt, and SFWeekly wrote that on his watch, San Francisco was one of the worst run cities in America.  Meanwhile, San Francisco's residents now have a per-person $16,400 debt burden, fifth worst in the country, undoubtedly due to all of Newsom's unfunded mandates.  This watchdog report, here, notes that the city is still hiding a lot of its spending costs.  Conclusion: Newsom's probably trying to spin himself a fiscal conservative because he wants to keep some Democratic votes.
What this lunatic vote-losing, bank-breaking proposal is really about is likely something else, something well beyond the Latino vote (he already has the Latino vote).
It may be a bid to draw attention away from the bigger monster on the left's agenda, which is installing single-payer health insurance for all Californians, a leftist plan that will recrudesce as another statehouse bill this coming year, following its failure earlier.
One medical association says Newsom's squarely on board for it, yet he hasn't declared for it as brazenly as he did his support for free health care for illegals.
The Sacramento Bee has some reporting on that here:
Opposing sides have heard what they've wanted to hear from Newsom in the gubernatorial race.  The nurses see an ally in their fight, while Newsom's comments lately indicate deep skepticism about the ability to implement single-payer, industry representatives said.
"We have spoken to Mr. Newsom and if he's elected, we will continue to talk to Mr. Newsom," said Janus Norman, chief lobbyist for the California Medical Association.  "We expressed our concern and he expressed his commitment to getting to a place where everyone is covered[.] ... He did it in San Francisco and he is dead-set on doing it as governor."
That plan is a genuinely communist plan, an authentic monster whose starting cost will be $400 billion (and if Obamacare is any indication, it won't be a mere $400 billion) and will raise taxes sky-high.  Doctors and health care officials are starting to get roused against it, arguing that choice for consumers will end and health care will go downhill as taxes soar.  For doctors and other health care providers, it's pretty obvious that if health care moves to a state model, incentives toward excellence and competition among providers will end, and doctors will lose all control over the kind of health care decisions they can make, becoming worker ants under the command of state bureaucrats and central planners.  They are protesting that with arguments like this:
Special interests in Sacramento are continuing to push a proposal to force all Californians into a costly new, state-run government health care system.  The proposal would require millions of Californians to give up their Medicare and employer-sponsored coverage, with no guarantee they could keep their doctor, specialists or pharmaceutical benefits.
California leads the nation in expanding health care coverage and now has the lowest rate of uninsured in its history at 6.8%.  Single payer puts at risk the progress we've made increasing access to health care through the Affordable Care Act and other recent reforms.
Now, if you read closely the Sacramento Bee report on "Californians Against The Costly Disruption Of Our Health Care," the group opposing single-payer, you will learn that even though it includes doctors, it's actually a big business outfit that includes the California Chamber of Commerce, rather than a grassroots conservative group, and you can see that the group suggests that giving free health care to illegals is its recommended alternative to single-payer, a sort of sop to preventing the big monster of single-payer from being enacted.
Coalition members said they'll be focusing their early efforts on the Legislature and the next governor, but did not rule out spending on advertising and other public messaging.  Key discussions will be focused on alternative potential proposals to contain escalating costs and expand coverage to everyone regardless of immigration status or ability to pay.
That will serve big insurance's interests, but the free health care for illegals plan might not be such a great deal for taxpayers.  After all, it's a given that Californians will foot the bill for Venezuela's health care exodus as first ports of refuge such as Peru and Ecuador shut their doors.  Throw in all of Central America's population, much of Mexico's, and much further populations expected to roll in from Africa and India, and the California bill is going to get big.
If this gets out, that Newsom is such a weakling in the face of the left that he's willing to throw the sop of free health care for illegals as a means of heading off the single-payer leftist juggernaut in the statehouse, we return to the reality on the ground in the precincts: that voters don't want more free stuff for illegals, more magnets for illegals, or more illegals...and that might just be a good day for Republican John Cox.
Cox has got to run with it, because the signs are there on the ground that even very blue voters have had it with more free goodies for all the world's illegals.  Never mind single-payer, a pie-in-the-sky idea if there ever was one.  The illegals will be coming, and only Cox will stop them.

Gavin Newsom Vows Universal Healthcare for All of California’s Illegal Immigrants

Democrat California gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newson said in an interview released Tuesday that, as governor, he would grant universal health care to illegal aliens through an executive order.

Newsom told Pod Save America hosts Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett that he was “very proud” of creating the nation’s only universal healthcare plan for illegal immigrants as mayor of San Francisco.
FAVREAU: Let’s talk about something very costly– single-payer health care. You’ve been very supportive over the course of the campaign—
FAVREAU: You’ve expressed, in the past, support for Senate bill 562, single-payer health care in California.
NEWSOM: —That was amended. Yes.
FAVREAU: Right, so, it passed the State Senate, it died in Assembly. As governor, do you hope the revive that bill? Do you want to see a new bill?
FAVREAU: How do you plan to get single-payer health care passed?
NEWSOM: It needs to be pulled into the governor’s office. The executive needs to lead it. Obamacare would not have happened if it was just exclusively a legislative fiat — that said — and Nancy Pelosi did a magical job of organizing it, but it required the concerted contributions of the president of the United States. The only way in a state whose population that is larger than 163 nations — California — whose economy is larger than all of four nations — fifth largest economy — to approximate a strategy for universal health care with the support and concurrence of the governor. Frankly, that’s not an indictment, it’s just what’s been missing in the past. So, I’d bring that into my office. I brought it well beyond a bill that basically started a process. If you read 562, the vast majority of elected officials that were for and against it didn’t — Did not. For and against did not, because they would have actually known what it said.
It would have created a committee that began a process to come up with a strategy and a plan to finance and organize with 34 prescribed benefits, a universal strategy for single-payer financing. That process can be done without a bill. That process should be done by the next governor and I’m committed to it for no other reason than health care is devouring our budget. Health care in this state is the biggest driver of our unfunded retirement benefits. It’s a driver of a lot of our costs, not the least of which at the UC and CSU. I serve on both those boards. Tuition is impacted by the costs of employment, personnel costs are impacted by health care. It’s the issue that animates most of the voters I talk to, still, even in this post-Obamacare world. The inflationary burdens are self-evident and the vandalism these guys are doing on the federal level is only going to make things worse. I’d like to see if we could control our own destiny. I’m not naive about it. I did universal health care when I was Mayor. Fully implemented, regardless of pre-existing conditions, ability to pay, and regardless of your immigration status. San Franciso is the only universal health care plan for all undocumented residents in America. Very proud of that. We proved it could be done without bankrupting the city. I’d like to see that extended to the rest of the state.

No Justice for Taxpaying Americans 
By Howie Carr 
The Boston Herald, August 08, 2018 

But the real double standard kicks in when the undocumented Democrat gets to the courtroom. A taxpaying American can only dream of the kid-gloves treatment these Third World fiends get. 
Here’s a 2016 headline: “If Springfield market owner illegally cashing food stamps had been U.S. citizen punishment would have been greater, judge says.” 

This one involved a 56-year-old Dominican bodega owner who was running an EBT-card scam for illegal immigrants in Springfield — stop me if you’ve heard this one before. He stole $38,000 and didn’t do a day in jail. As Judge Tina Page said, “Had he been a citizen of the U.S. he would in all likelihood be serving a substantial sentence.” 

But if he’d been imprisoned he’d have been deported, and God knows we don’t want to deport Dominican welfare fraudsters — or Dominican heroin dealers. 

Freeing Dominican heroin dealers (and future cop killers) is the specialty of Superior Court Judge Timothy Feeley, who cut loose a Dominican heroin dealer with no prison time, as the prosecutor put it, “to help him avoid deportation.” 

Are you starting to notice a pattern here? 

Sometimes law-abiding taxpayers get murdered 

because of this double standard of justice for 

welfare-collecting noncitizens. 



This is why you work From Jan - May paying taxes to the government ....with the rest of the calendar year is money for you and your family.
Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for
$5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, with his fake Social Security number, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200..... free.

He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.

He qualifies for food stamps.

He qualifies for free (no deductible, no  co-pay) health care.

His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.

He requires bilingual teachers and books.

He qualifies for relief from high energy bills.

If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI.

Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at (our) taxpayer's expense.

He doesn't worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.

Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.

He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.

Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after Paying their bills and his.

The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.

U.S. Election Meddling: Nationwide Voter Fraud, Importation of 15M Foreign-Born Voters

Shelby Lum, Richmond Times-Dispatch via The Associated Press

19 Jul 2018Washington, D.C.

As the establishment media, GOP, and Democrats fret over the influence foreign countries have on U.S. elections, the leading threats to the American electorate remain nationwide voter fraud and mass immigration.

Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT! Wake up people! 

‘Eleven of California’s 58 counties have registration rates exceeding 100% of the age-eligible citizenry.’  

‘California has the highest rate of inactive registrations of any state in the country. Los Angeles County has the highest number of inactive registrations of any single county in the country’

And M.E.Ch.A's goal is even more radical: an independent ''Aztlan,'' the collective name this organization  gives to the seven states of the U.S. Southwest – Arizona,  California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Utah."

America builds the La Raza “The Race” Mexican welfare state

Illegal Immigration Costs U.S. Taxpayers a Stunning $134.9 Billion a Year



America builds the La Raza “The Race” Mexican welfare state

Illegal Immigration Costs U.S. Taxpayers a Stunning $134.9 Billion a Year



“In the U.S. the remittances that come of illegal immigration drive down U.S. wages, particularly of those on the lowest-skilled parts of the ladder, and as money flows out from local communities, leaves them underinvested and run-down. Nobody can live two places at once. Illegal immigrants live here but their money lives in Mexico. And it's often untaxed.” MONICA SHOWALTER



MCALLEN, Texas -- The capture of three top Mexican drug cartel bosses on the U.S. side of the Texas border helps to illustrate the irony of how even narco's seek refuge from the violence in Mexico.



Federal agents raided Q.T Fashion and numerous other businesses in the downtown fashion district Wednesday, cracking down on a scheme that cartels are increasingly relying on to get their profits — from drug sales, kidnappings and other illegal activities — back to Mexico, authorities said.

Nine people were arrested in raids targeting 75 locations, and $90 million was seized — $70 million in cash. In one condo, agents found $35 million stuffed in banker boxes. At a mansion in Bel-Air, they discovered $10 million in duffel bags.

"Los Angeles has become the epicenter of narco-dollar money laundering with couriers regularly bringing duffel bags and suitcases full of cash to many businesses," said Robert E. Dugdale, the assistant U.S. attorney in charge of federal criminal prosecutions in Los Angeles.


LOS ANGELES TOP 200 LA RAZA CRIMINALS… they’re all registered dems and getting anchor baby breeders’ welfare!

206 Most wanted criminals in Los Angeles. Out of 206 criminals--183 are hispanic---171 of those are wanted for Murder.


Agent Rogelio Martinez sought “to defend my country from terrorists.”

 Mexico transferred Ernesto Fonseca to house arrest in 2016 and in 2013 Mexico released Rafael Caro Quintero from prison on a legal technicality. Clearly, the Mexican government ranks among the cartels’ chief collaborators. 

In March of 1995 U.S. Border Patrol agent Luis Santiago fell to his death while pursuing illegals. Voz Fronteriza, an officially recognized student publication at the University of California at San Diego, responded with “Death of a Migra Pig,” a page-one editorial that celebrated both the death of Santiago and called for the killing of federal agents.
In 1994, Voz Fronteriza received $6,000 from UC student activity funds and many of its writers are members of the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, which refers to the American Southwest as “occupied Mexico.” California attorney general Xavier Becerra, a former congressman once on Hillary Clinton’s short list as a running mate, boasts of his involvement with the militant group. 


"Mexican president candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador called for mass immigration to the United States, declaring it a "human right". We will defend all the (Mexican) invaders in the American," Obrador said, adding that immigrants "must leave their towns and find a life, job, welfare, and free medical in the United States."


"Fox’s Tucker Carlson noted Thursday that Obrador has previously proposed granting AMNESTY TO MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS. “America is now Mexico’s social safety net, and that’s a very good deal for the Mexican ruling class,” Carlson added."

"Many Americans forget is that our country is located against a socialist failed state that is promising to descend even further into chaos – not California, the other one. And the Mexicans, having reached the bottom of the hole they have dug for themselves, just chose to keep digging by electing a new leftist presidente who wants to surrender to the cartels and who thinks that Mexicans have some sort of “human right” to sneak into the U.S. and demographically reconquer it."

Under NAFTA: $2.8B U.S.-Mexico Trade Surplus Became $70.9B Deficit

By Terence P. Jeffrey | August 27, 2018 | 5:35 PM EDT

President Enrique Pena Nieto of Mexico and President Donald Trump, July 7, 2018. (Screen Capture)
(CNSNews.com) - Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that President Bill Clinton signed in Dec. 8, 1993, the annual U.S. merchandise trade balance with Mexico has fallen from a surplus of approximately $2.8 billion to a deficit of approximately $70.9 billion, according to data published by the U.S. Census Bureau.
NAFTA--which created what the Congressional Research Service calls a “free trade area” among the United States, Canada and Mexico--took effect on Jan. 1, 1994. President Donald Trump announced on Monday that he had negotiated an new agreement with Mexico to replace NAFTA.
“We’re going to call it the United States-Mexico Trade Agreement, and we’ll get rid of the name NAFTA,” Trump said. “It has a bad connotation because the United States was hurt very badly by NAFTA for many years.”
In 1993, the last year before NAFTA came into force, the United States ran a $2,812,370,000 merchandise trade surplus with Mexico (in constant December 2017 dollars adjusted using the Bureau of Labor Statistics inflation calculator).
By 2017, the last full year on record, the U.S. ran a $70,952,900,000 merchandise trade deficit with Mexico.
In the 24 years under NAFTA, the U.S. has run a merchandise trade surplus with Mexico in only one year. That was 1994—the first year under NAFTA—when the U.S. ran a $2,222,830,000 trade surplus with its southern neighbor.
In every one of the 23 years on record since then, the U.S. has run a merchandise trade deficit with Mexico.
In 1995, the second year under NAFTA, the U.S. ran a trade deficit with Mexico that was $25,388,440,000 (in constant December 2017 dollars).
In 2002, the U.S. merchandise trade deficit with Mexico topped $50 billion for the first time—hitting $50,621,090,000 in December 2017 dollars.
In 2005, it topped $60 billion for the first time—hitting $62,459,010,000 in constant December 2017 dollars.
In 2006, it topped $70 billion for the first time—hitting $78,833,200,000 in constant December 2017 dollars.
In 2007, it topped $80 billion for the first time—hitting $87,789,520,000 in constant December 2017 dollars. That was the largest merchandise trade deficit that the U.S. has run with Mexico in the 33 years (going back to 1985) that the Census Bureau has posted historical trade data on its website.
The top four products the U.S. imports from Mexico, according to the Census Bureau, are “other parts and accessories of vehicles” ($44,684,401,000); “trucks, buses, and special purpose vehicles” ($30,597,819,000); “passenger cars, new and used” ($29,727,683,000); and “computers” ($18,357,874,000).
The top four products the U.S. exports to Mexico are “other parts and accessories of vehicles” ($20,492,114,000); “electric apparatus” ($15,927,123,000); “computer accessories” ($14,612,318,000); and “semiconductors” ($8,519,645,000).

Coming Soon: Very Expensive Taxpayer Funded Healthcare For Illegal Aliens in California
Last year the government in California turned the entire state into a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Now, former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who is running for governor, wants to provide "free" healthcare to those in the state and country unlawfully. 
During an interview on Pod Save America, Newsom cited his work in San Francisco, where he implemented a single-payer healthcare system that was accessible to illegal aliens, as an example of how he can get it done.
"I did universal coverage when I was mayor, fully implemented regardless of pre-existing preconditions, ability to pay and regardless of your immigration status. San Francisco is the only universal healthcare plan for all undocumented residents in America. Very proud of that and we proved it can be done," Newsom said.
According to estimates providing "free" healthcare to everyone in California, including the illegal alien population, would cost a staggering $400 billion per year and will require raising taxes. From the LA Times
A single-payer healthcare system in California — a galvanizing cause among the state's progressive flank — would cost $400 billion annually, according to a legislative analysis released on Monday.

1. A total cost of $400 billion per year to cover all healthcare and administrative costs.
2. Of that, $200 billion of existing federal, state and local funds could be repurposed to go toward the single-payer system.
3. The additional $200 billion would need to be raised from new taxes.
California has tried to pass single-payer healthcare in the past and has failed repeatedly. Current Democrat Governor Jerry Brown has been an opponent of legislation on the issue due to the overwhelming cost.
