SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) A California lawmaker wants to use a state version of the Affordable Care Act to provide health care access to immigrants who are in the state illegally.
Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, said if the goal of the federal health care law is to provide coverage to the uninsured, then immigration status should be irrelevant.

California is finished. Move the dodgers back to Brooklyn and call it a wrap.
Affordable Care Act to provide health care access to immigrants who are in the state illegally and family members back in the home country
There is no hope for the future of CA. It will become a permanent dem and Latino majority state that will devolve into third world status.
I say why not - the sooner California goes bankrupt the better. It just might educate the rest of the independents and liberal republicans about what is headed our way.
- Then hispanics will not mid if we just start moving our borders South “to share the wealth” .
The mentally ill are running Cali.
How are the ‘chokes doing? We saw some great ones down at Wilder Ranch around Christmas.
Forget secession. The sane states should convene for the purposes of expelling the whack job states. We can start with the entire pacific coast.
You have to give credit to the socialist.
They never claim victory and go home.
As soon as they win one battle they start in on a new one.
Heck, when they lose a battle they just turn around and start over again never admitting they lost.
I am getting weary of this constant battle. Perhaps that is how they win in the end.
Most of us just want to get on with our lifes.
The socialist want to tell us how to live our lifes.
Providing “free” health care sounds like a noble cause, but free is not free, what it means is those that are working to support their family will have money taken from them to give to these illegals.
Simple solution to illegal health problems, send them home.
That's your first mistake right there, Lara. Obama's goal for this law is to destroy the US through overwhelming welfare state demands. Thanks for playing right into his hand.
How is this fair? Why should people who happen through no fault of their own to be outside California or the US have no free health care? There is a whole,continent in Africa that could use great free health care. Why stop at only foreigners who are pretty close to california?
It should not. And a new entitlement for people who pay little or no taxes. At some point a California state or federal judge Proposition will rule Proposition 13 unconstitutional and we will see a massive increases in property taxes to pay for all the new social spending that will be occurring.
Perhaps an EBT card with enough funds for any cosmetic surgery they may deem desirable that year.
Yea, but... guess who's going to have to bail them out.
“if the goal of the federal health care law is to provide coverage to the uninsured, then immigration status should be irrelevant.”
Why stop there? If the goal is to destroy the United States, then any law might as well be irrelevant. Heck, let’s give them free food as well, because as the left is fond of saying about healthcare, sooner or later everybody needs food. So it should be free.
There is a species of human that has an absolute bottomless reservoir of energy when it comes to picking someone else's pocket.
Their industry never ceases to amaze me.
It will come to us, standing in the doorway of our houses, rifle in hand, saying something like 'take one step closer...' to stop it.
“They already use ERs as primary care facilities for free. What more do they want?”
Coverage for tatoo font changes. That shouldn’t cost too much.
From the L. A. Times
1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County ( L. A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.
2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.
6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.
7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
8 Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.
10. In L.. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.. (There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County ..)
Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States ‘annual population growth(and over 90% of California , Florida , and New York ) results from immigration.
29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens .
California has been finished for a long time now, trust me, born and raised here in SoCal and its gotten worse as time goes by..the only thing good about LA are the sports teams, and my Lakers, wait, I take that back, we straight up SUCK right now but at one time we were good
And just think of all the poverty and entrenched corruption we'll share along with whatever wealth is left.
No worries. It's coming.
I have said it before here. The Dems are inviting their own "fundamental transformation" by crap like this. Amnesty would indeed assure democrat victories all across the country but would give the foreign invaders a seat at the national table of politics.
Electoral victories by Dems will be displaced by electoral victories of South-of-the-Border (SOB) democrats. And it will be their (SOB's) party now. Bye-bye Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson - no love lost there. And corruption and vicious politics will be elevated so high that it would give Nancy Pelosi vertigo. Then the word will get out to all the lands that the USA is prime for looting. Amnesty II, III and IV will follow. A primeval race to the bottom.
thanks I just now noticed the russian language text of Mister :LaRaza’s papers...
too el rapido maybe
Its Kalipornia, it has to be 72 different languages
at least at the very least.
there are dozens of Dialects based on Amos N AndyBonix.. in some mid sized ghettos alone...
“California is finished. Move the dodgers back to Brooklyn and call it a wrap.”
New York is fallowing Stupidfornia in a race to the
bottom. Better off moving the Dodgers to Dallas.
Press “1” for English gringo.
When your health benefits are cut, and when your grandmom and grandpop can’t get that knee transplant or heart surgery they WORKED FOR AND PAID FOR, when your PERSONAL premiums go UP, those hidden taxes kick in, and your OWN benefits are cut, THIS IS WHY ITS BEING DONE. To provide medical coverage for illegal invaders, unemployed pot heads and welfare cheats.
After all - they CAN vote (or will in a short time) - for Democrats and RINOs.
I think the media owes Congressman Joe Wilson an apology
Yup, you are exactly right. The CA Latino dems will squeeze out all the old white dems who invited them.
Why not just make all Mexican Nationals eligible for ObammyCare regardless of where they are living. Bite me Ricardo.
What I have been advocating for years. Solution to immigration is to annex Mexico.
Give them obamacare. Why should we legal citizens keep the pain of 2700 pages to ourselves.
Not the mentally ill, just Mexicans
More money for his people...who aren’t Americans.

Sounds like a great idea for California .... damn, if you’re going to give them driver’s licenses, food stamps, housing assistance, daycare, free schooling and college, etc. then the least you could do would be to supply them with medical care, optical care, dental care, free contraceptives, etc. Hey, what’s a few billion more ... remember the words of the great leader from behind ... “The rich just need to give a little bit more, just a little bit more, ....”
That's the beauty of it! The rest of the country is broke too!
Let's just give everything to everyone who asks for it right now. Free healthcare, college, food stamps, disability, welfare, whatever... Let's get this over with.
Once we hit bottom and the economy completely crashes, maybe we can put this place back together again.
