California leads the nation in poverty.

People are leaving the state in droves.

Rather than care for Americans first, Cali residents say they won’t mind seeing illegal aliens obtain “free” health care.

Aren’t Californians taxes enough already as it is? They want more?

From Western Journal:

Prager University’s Will Witt interviewed several Californians at Manhattan Beach near Los Angeles to see what they thought.

“I found that most people believe in a utopia,” Witt explained on “Fox & Friends” over the weekend. “We know as more conservative people, utopias don’t exist.”

“This is kind of the trend in California,” he observed “Free universal health care is just free, and it’s just the government paying for it, but they don’t understand it’s a burden on the taxpayers.”

One woman Witt interviewed said, “I don’t see a problem with everyone getting higher income and having more taxes.”

Another two people he spoke with agreed there should be health care for all and that illegal aliens pay as high of taxes as American citizens.

Even a man wearing a shirt with the phrase “Earned Not Given” on it said “I think everyone should get free universal health care.”

People are fleeing the Golden State:

According to CNBC during the 12-month period from July 2016 to July 2017, “California saw a net loss of just over 138,000 people, while Texas had a net increase of more than 79,000 people. Arizona gained more than 63,000 residents, and Nevada gained more than 38,000.”

California now leads the nation in poverty, per Sacramento Bee:

Newly released federal estimates show California’s poverty rate remained the highest in the nation, despite a modest fall, and the state’s falling uninsured rate slowed for the first time since before Medicaid expansion.

According to the Census Bureau, the share of Californians in poverty fell to 19 percent — a 1.4 percent decrease from last year. However, policy experts warned that in spite of the good news more than 7 million people still struggle to get by in the state.

The poverty figures released Wednesday are said to paint the best picture of life for California’s working poor since it encompasses income from government programs and factors in the high cost of living in some corners of the state.

Although California has a vigorous economy and a number of safety net programs to aid needy residents, it’s often not enough to forestall economic hardship for one out of every five residents, the data show.

The high cost of living, primarily in housing, is a strong counterweight to many of the state’s efforts, said Caroline Danielson, policy director at the Public Policy Institute of California.

“We do have a housing crisis in many parts of the state and our poverty rate is highest in Los Angeles County,” she said, adding that cost of living and poverty is often highest in the state’s coastal counties. “When you factor that in we struggle.”

California is run by the far left. What else is to be expected?
