How some politicians use your tax dollars. From TownHall.
A recent example is Democratic California gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom, the state’s current lieutenant governor and the former mayor of San Francisco. He’s openly campaigning on a plan to create a universal health care system that would also pay for all health care services for illegal immigrants.
“I did universal health care when I was mayor, fully implemented regardless of pre-existing conditions, ability to pay, and regardless of your immigration status,” Newsom said in August.
“San Francisco has the only universal plan for undocumented residents in America,” he added. “I am very proud of that.”
Rather than spend money helping to reduce crime, fund education programs, or tackle California’s $1 trillion in unfunded pension liabilities, Newsom would rather pay the health care bills of people who shouldn’t be in the state in the first place.
The problem isn’t only limited to California Democrats, either. After countless promises to enact real border security measures, Republicans in Congress have repeatedly failed to fulfill their commitment—a truly despicable failure, especially in light of the fact that President Trump has made it abundantly clear that he’s more than willing to fix America’s border crisis.
