Gavin Newsom’s First Act as California Governor: More Healthcare for Illegal Aliens

By Joel Pollak

California Governor Gavin Newsom’s first act in office was to propose extending state healthcare benefits to more illegal aliens.

On Tuesday, shortly after being sworn in, Newsom — who ran on the proposal of providing healthcare to everyone in California, though he struggled to explain how he would pay for it — signed an executive order taking steps in that direction.

In his first executive order, Newsom directed the state to create a single government purchaser for prescription drugs to increase negotiating leverage with pharmaceutical companies. Alongside the order, Newsom proposed extending Medi-Cal — the state’s version of Medicaid — to illegal aliens up to the age of 26, rather than 19.

The governor’s forthcoming budget, his office said, “will make California the first state in the nation to cover young undocumented adults through a state Medicaid program.”

That would cover 138,000 “young people in the country illegally,” according to the Associated Press.

    Create this hammock and he will overwhelm the health system in California to the point of collapse.

    The end result will surely cause health rationing.
