California Governor Gavin Newsom has recently unveiled “The California Blueprint,” which includes a proposal designed to provide illegal immigrants with universal healthcare, funded by the government. Newsom’s blueprint is based upon a 2022-2023 budget for the state, estimated to be $213B.
The Democrat governor gleefully tweeted about the state’s alleged $47.5B surplus, along with predictable plans to further subsidize illegal immigrants on Monday, declaring that the “new proposal” will make California the first state that has managed to achieve universal access to healthcare coverage. However, Newsom did not include the brazen disclaimer in the “The California Blueprint,” notably that these benefits may be distributed to all individuals “regardless of immigration status.”
The governor’s gloating over the surplus emerges as he admits to numerous California residents presently being “crushed” by enormous cost of living. Despite these dramatically escalated costs, Newsom still vows to provide universal healthcare access to all residents in the state, regardless of whether or not the residents are lawfully present.
Nonetheless, the governor’s blueprint insists that numerous Californians oftentimes “find themselves on the wrong end of income inequality,” especially when they are routinely “crushed” by numerous expenses, including increased cost for the most basic goods an services, ranging from housing to healthcare.
The “Blueprint for California” will ostensibly lower many costs of living via reduction of “everyday expenses,” though this commentary was immediately followed by Newsom’s apparent commitment to funding illegal immigrants.
In addition, Newsom’s pledge for healthcare emerges as hundreds of thousands of Californians have fled the state in recent months, with a population decline of 0.7 percent according to Census data from April 2021. Given the size of California’s population, this increase is not insignificant, as it equates to a loss of nearly 300,000 residents in total.
The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the state is also larger than almost all other nations worldwide, excluding the following: the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, and China.
