California’s progressive politics are taking yet one more step forward. On Monday, Governor Gavin Newsom revealed his new budget proposal which includes expanding the state’s Medi-Cal health coverage to all low-income illegal immigrants in the state.
National Review reports: “The Golden State already began offering coverage to low-income illegal immigrants 26 and under in 2019 and added coverage for those 55 and older last year. Now, the Democratic governor has proposed covering the remainder beginning no sooner than January 1, 2024.”
As the Associated Press notes, Newsom did not unveil a plan on how to pay for the massive additional costs, nor how he would phase in the coverage. This move makes California the first state to provide universal health care access for all residents regardless of legal status.
One legislative analysis estimated the cost could be upwards of $2.4 billion per year. National Review writes the expansion is included in Newsom’s $286 billion state budget which “makes use of a projected $45.7 billion surplus.”
Newsom’s bill does include $300 million to beef up law enforcement efforts, a necessary tool after liberal policies have increased retail theft tremendously. His bill also includes “$2 billion for mental health services, housing and cleaning homeless encampments to address the state’s homelessness problem.”
Newsom identifies “existential threats” that face the state as justification for his spending proposals. Those include the COVID-19 pandemic, wildfires and drought brought on by global warming, homelessness, income inequality which includes the lack of health insurance for illegal immigrants and public safety.

Biden Administration shipping thousands of baby formula pallets to border while our shelves are empty
American Democrats won’t spend money to secure our borders but will send billions of dollars to Ukraine to help them secure theirs, and now they are taking away the little baby formula that’s left and giving that away, too.
As photos and videos of stores across the country that haven no more baby formula in stock are going viral on social media, Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammack made a shocking discovery. According to Cammack and reported by Townhall, “pallets of baby formula have been delivered by the Biden Administration as store shelves go bare.”
“Biden is sending pallets of baby formula to the border. Meanwhile, store shelves across America are empty and moms are being told they don’t know when more is coming in. Welcome to Biden’s America where American moms and dads are last,” Cammack posted on Facebook. “What is infuriating to me is that this is another example of an America last agenda. Pallets [of baby formula]”.
“The American government is sending by the pallet, thousands and thousands of containers of baby formula to the border,” she said in a video.
Border Patrol agents have been instructed not to take baby formula home for their own children.
The first photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the U.S. border. Shelves and pallets packed with baby formula.
The second is from a shelf right here at home. Formula is scarce.
This is what America last looks like. pic.twitter.com/OO0V99njoy
