Gavin Newsom is the former mayor of San Francisco and now he’s running for governor of California. The far left candidate is likely to win and he has some bad ideas for the state. One of them is providing healthcare to everyone, including people who are in the country illegally.

California gov candidate backs universal healthcare for undocumented immigrants
California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), who is running for governor, said in an interview released Tuesday that he would like to see the state pay for universal healthcare for all illegal immigrants.
“I did universal healthcare when I was mayor — fully implemented, regardless of pre-existing condition, ability to pay, and regardless of your immigration status,” Newsom told the podcast Pod Save America, referencing his stint as San Francisco’s mayor. “I’d like to see that extended to the rest of the state.
“San Francisco is the only universal healthcare plan for all undocumented residents in America. Very proud of that,” Newsom added, “And we proved it can be done without bankrupting the city.”
Newsom said the effort needs to be led by the “governor’s office” not the state legislature.
“The executive needs to lead it,” said Newsom.
