John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

California Considers Spending Billions On Health Care For Illegal Immigrants

Recommended Posts

By Jason Hopkins -



California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s plan for government-funded health care for illegal immigrants is frugal compared to proposals by other Democratic leaders in his state.

Newsom, the progressive first-term governor of California and ardent opponent of the Trump administration, wants to offer free health care services to low-income illegals between the ages of 19 and 25. The plan is estimated to cost the state $98 million-a-year to operate.

“Young people feel the crunch of the cost crisis acutely – from high rents and student debt. Health care shouldn’t be one more worry,” Newsom said in a press release. “We are helping young adults when they come off their parents’ plan and assisting those who may not be able to join onto a parents’ insurance policy.”

Despite the nearly $100 million annual price tag, Newsom’s plan appears conservative when contrasted with the options being touted in the California state capitol.

A bill in the state Senate calls for not only 19 to 25 year-olds, but also those 65 years and older to qualify for free health care. The author of the bill argued that California’s budget could easily afford the burden. In the state Assembly, there is legislation that would cover all illegal immigrants over the age of 19, costing The Golden State an estimated $3.4 billion. The state House proposal earned condemnation from Newsom himself.

“There’s 3.4 billion reasons why it is a challenge,” the Democratic governor said during a recent press conference.

Leaders in the state Assembly and Senate are expected to finish their proposals this week before they negotiate with Newsom on a final budget. No matter how the plans are tweaked, California appears poised to become the first state in the U.S. to offer government-funded health care to undocumented adults.

Additionally, implementation of the proposals would further establish the liberal state as a counter to the Trump administration’s immigration agenda.

The White House, for example, is considering a new regulation that would dramatically expand the number of immigrants living in the U.S. that are dependent on public benefits. President Donald Trump’s immigration plan, which he introduced earlier in May, would reduce the number of low-income foreign nationals allowed into the country.

The California GOP panned Democrats for pushing publicly-funded health care for illegals while simultaneously mulling a plan that mandates health insurance and slaps a penalty on those who choose not to participate.

“We’re going to penalize the citizens of this state that have followed the rules, but we’re going to let somebody who has not followed the rules come in here and get the services for free. I just think that’s wrong,” said Jeff Stone, a Republican state senator.
