Healthcare is very expensive. It was expensive before Obamacare. It was made much more expensive as a result of Obamacare. But apparently it’s not expensive for adult illegal immigrants in California under the age of 25. For them, it apparently only costs $1,100 per year.
According to Fox News:
Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., signed a bill into law on Tuesday making young illegal immigrants eligible for the Medicaid program in California, making it the first state to offer such taxpayer-funded health benefits to low-income adults age 25 and younger regardless of their immigration status.
State officials said they expected the plan to cover about 90,000 people and cost taxpayers $98 million. California already covered children 18 and younger regardless of immigration status.
Those of us who buy health insurance realize there’s no chance of getting even basic healthcare for $1,100 per year ($1,088.88, to be exact) or $99 per month. If there is, then someone has some major explaining to do about how our costs are so much higher than those of illegal immigrants. Are the just getting sick less? Do their drugs cost less than our drugs? What gives, California?
I’ll go ahead and call BS on this one. If Californians believe Democrats when they say it will only cost $1,100 a year for each illegal immigrant given free health insurance, then they deserve the wool that’s over their eyes.
