CA Dems Agree to Pay $100 Mil Per Year for Illegal Immigrant Health Care
California Democrats have reached an agreement to cover the costs for full health care benefits for low-income illegal immigrants, according to Fox News.
The agreement–part of the state’s $213 billion budget– would enable low-income illegal adults between the ages of 19 and 25 to sign up for California’s Medicaid program, Medi-Cal.
The state legislature must approve the agreement and a vote is scheduled for this week.
The plan is estimated to cost the state $98 million a year and be available to approximately 90,000 illegal immigrants.
In order to pay for the latest entitlement, California plans to start taxing people who don’t have health insurance.
