Well folks, that sounds well and good in a society where there is no rule of law and money grows on trees. In the real world, however, expensive programs like Medi-Cal are funded by hardworking citizen and legal resident taxpayers. In a state where taxpayers already pay the highest income, gas, and property tax rates in the country, taxpayers should not be made to shoulder an additional burden by subsidizing the healthcare of citizens of foreign countries who are unlawfully residing in the United States.

One might be surprised that legislators would even consider a bill like SB 1005, but sadly this type of taxpayer-hating, illegal alien-facilitating bill has become the norm in California. The goals of California government should include protecting the rule of law and its citizen and legal resident taxpayers, not subsidizing the healthcare of citizens of foreign countries. SB 1005 will ultimately raise healthcare costs, reduce access to quality physicians, and increase wait times.

With that said, I would challenge those stewards of the public trust who still serve the people in California whom they were elected to represent to stand on principle and reject SB 1005.

By the way, Senator Lara has also sponsored SB 1210, which would give taxpayer-subsidized student loans to illegal aliens, and SB 1159, which would allow illegal aliens to obtain licenses to practice medicine, pharmacy, psychiatry and more than two hundred other professions—despite federal law’s prohibition on the employment of unauthorized aliens—and to compete with citizen and legal immigrants for jobs.
DEPORT ALL illegal immigrants!!

Yes, because it is better to allow people die or to have a sick population. And it is even better to have an uneducated population, right?

This is what happens when people discover they can vote themselves "stuff" that "other people" have to pay for just by electing people who are willing to give away other people's money, including our children's, to get elected.

Don't ya wish you could fast forward and watch those voting for the free stuff try to explain to their grandchildren how they put them in debt that they'll never get out of or explain to them how they lost a country because they wanted all that "free" stuff which in the long run doesn't matter a bit. Heck half the stuff they are getting will be outdated within 1-2 yrs and worthless anyway.

I know what I'm telling mine right now.
