Laura Ingraham on California Ignoring Americans to Help Illegals: I Never Thought I’d Agree with Cher

‘Now even liberals in the state of California seem to be at a breaking point’
By Grabien Staff


INGRAHAM: "Since the Democrats did the math, the real cost is probably double or triple. Do you remember what they estimated that ill-fated bullet train would cost and how they would pay for that? Well, how they’re going to pay for this, by the way? By taxing citizens who don’t have health insurance. In other words, reviving the penalty of ObamaCare. Remember that? Now, even liberals in the state of California seem to be at a breaking point. Just a few months back, singer and performer Cher, who considers bashing Trump a moral imperative, sounded off herself,saying in a tweet, 'I understand helping struggling immigrants, but my city, Los Angeles, isn’t taking care of its own. What about the 50,000+ citizens who live on the streets, people who live below the poverty line and hungry? If my state can’t take care of its own (many are vets) how can it take care of more?' I never thought I would agree with Cher, but I agree with Cher. Now, most of the reporting on California's new healthcare giveaway to illegals is framed this way. I love this. It’s framed as the Golden State sending a message to the Trump Administration, or California’s effort to distance itself from Trump. But the better framing, the more accurate framing would be 'California, with its high taxes, homelessness problem, and where illegal aliens are treated better than poor veterans, is giving America a blueprint of how not to proceed policy-wise.' Yet despite this disastrous state of affairs, Democrats are rushing to embrace these California values."
