Mexicans Or Measles? Gavin Newsom Creates A False Choice.

In California, Governor Gavin Newsom is seeking to extend health care to undocumented people, especially children. Such a goal appears to be laudable. Who's against poor children getting health care?


The problem is the way he's doing it. The Sacramento Bee explains his proposal and the consequences. He's seeking to take money from STD and vaccination programs. Now some of these programs have more money than they need, but underfunding them should be a non-starter.


Certain areas of the state are having an increase in STDs and everyone knows about the measles and other outbreaks. These programs shouldn't be underfunded, but they need their necessary money too.


The hard choice between undocumented children and other vital health programs is a false choice. California on it's own is the sixth largest economy on Earth. These officials should be able to find some money elsewhere. Ending lucrative tax breaks for Silicon Valley and Hollywood, or raising taxes on those who profit the most from using these incentives, may be the place to start. There are certainly other sources of money in state and local government that could be redirected with less harmful consequences.


This is merely a proposal and is unlikely to get passed, but it shows a lack of forethought by Newsom's team in Sacramento. If you didn't know any better, you'd think they were working in Washington instead.
