Don’t get too excited about this. They still won’t turn away emergency room cases and if a little girl appears at emergency room..about to pop out an anchor baby..she will get a bed asap.
The only way they can avoid those problems is to close their emergency room.

The board was generally united on the cuts, except for the move to stop providing medical care to undocumented immigrants at county clinics.

Why? Send them to their own country, or have them pay for the services with the money they usually send to Mexico

Supervisor Roger Dickinson warned that such a move would inevitably deny care to some people who qualified for it and lead to a higher societal cost as people get sicker and end up in emergency rooms.

If people that are not qualified for free care are denied, then those that have the means to pay will have no problem.

It is a good start.

The illegals in California are the silent budget devouring 1,000 pound hogs in every room where our budget is discussed.

Liberals don’t want to mention these incredible cost these millions of 1,000 pound hogs have on our economies from city to county to state and Nation.

Independents and Rinos with businesses that depend on illegals as customers and employees don’t want to discuss these budget destroying 1,000 hogs.

These millions of budget devouring 1,000 illegal hogs will continue to destroy this country more effectively than al Qaeda.

"It seems to me that's counterproductive," Dickinson said.

A red herring argument spouted off without any data to back him up. By cutting off health benefits to illegals Sacramento is taking an important step to discourage illegals from living in Sacramento at all, thereby saving the citizens of Sacramento County other costs associated with illegal immigration - public education, welfare and food stamps, crime control, etc. This is a good first step, hopefully to be followed by many more.

this also jumped out at me:

Supervisors will also consider changes to their vehicle fleet, which it is maintaining at a cost of $27 million a year.

The county has 2,940 vehicles in its light fleet, more than double the 1,430 the county had in 2001, according to a report supervisors reviewed at Wednesday’s meeting.

The report says that one in three county cars is a take-home vehicle – the highest ratio of 30 California counties surveyed.

The Sheriff’s Department has 889 vehicles, including 513 take-home cars. The District Attorney’s Office has 99, including 63 take-home cars, according to the report. The DA’s office says that number has changed and the department now has 81 vehicles, including 60 take-home cars.

County officials are recommending a number of changes to the vehicle policy, including mileage limits and possibly making workers pay for gas related to their commute.

“It raised my eyes to see we have a vehicle for every four employees,” Dickinson said. “That to me is an astonishing figure. … It’s also about how we run our operation

This is good news, SmithL.

The board was generally united on the cuts, except for the move to stop providing medical care to undocumented immigrants at county clinics.

Supervisor Roger Dickinson warned that such a move would inevitably deny care to some people who qualified for it and lead to a higher societal cost as people get sicker and end up in emergency rooms.

"It seems to me that's counterproductive," Dickinson said.

No Roger, it isn't counterproductive.

What was counterproductive in the first place was playing nursemaid to Criminal Invading Illegal Insurgent Alien Colonists with our taxes.

The solution is simple.

Make them go to their own country and have their government pay for their schooling and medical needs.
