California: Healthcare tax for citizens, free healthcare for noncitizens

California would be one of only four states imposing a tax on those who won’t or can’t obtain the kind of health insurance coverage the government requires. The state-imposed mandate would parallel the federal mandate which, in 2016, amounted to $695 per adult or 2.5 percent of yearly household income, whichever was higher. The tax is projected by Newsom to generate about $1 billion over three years.

Adding insult to injury, a portion of that $1 billion generated would go to provide healthcare coverage to people living in the country illegally.

California set to give full health care benefits to illegal aliens

California lawmakers released a final draft of the state’s 2020 budget late Sunday evening that would expand health care to illegal immigrants and cost taxpayers nearly $100 million per year.

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom reached an agreement with Democrats in the state legislature to become the first state in the nation to provide full health care benefits to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants.

How the Obama administration raided the Treasury to pay off insurers

This is about a raid conducted in the murky twilight of the Federal Register. It’s a scheme in which the Obama administration collected less in taxes from health insurers (mostly off the Exchanges) than they were required to do under the Affordable Care Act, created a plan to pay insurers selling policies on the Exchange considerably more than originally projected, and stiffed the United States Treasury on the money it was supposed to receive from the taxes.

Progressive Utopia: Los Angeles. The land of rotting garbage, typhus, rats and a high potential for the next bubonic plague

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year’s record number of flea-borne typhus cases.

Even the city’s most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA’s busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.

Bernie Sanders dodges question on gender selective abortion

2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) refused to answer a question regarding federal legal restrictions of abortion.

While giving an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning, Sanders — the self-described democratic socialist who praised the Soviet Union in the 1980s — was asked by host Chuck Todd if he believed there should be legislative “restrictions” placed on abortion.

Sanders responded by dancing around the question, saying that the decision should be left up to “the woman and her physician” and that people were making “a political issue out of a medical issue.”

Joe Biden: US is obligated to give healthcare to illegal aliens

“I think that anyone who is in a situation where they’re in need of healthcare, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for,” Biden said in Los Angeles. “That’s why I think we need more clinics around the country.”
