Homeless or Illegal? Need Free Health Care? Come To San Francisco!

Satire By John W. Lillpop

In a stunning victory for abandonment of personal responsibility and more government at all costs,last year the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to provide all City residents with free health care.

Mind you, The City is already home to thousands of homeless street people. Logically speaking, anything that would increase the number of uncouth folk who routinely urinate in public and pester tourists seems an odd way for a 'world class' city to behave.

But, this is San Francisco, the City That Knows How.

Or, used to.

In other startling news, the Supervisors apparently discovered an alaming shortfall of illegal aliens.

Because San Francisco's unwritten credo is Diversity Rules , the lack of a robust illegal alien constituency was seen as a serious flaw, nearly rising to the level of criminal negligence.

To fix this racism-based neglect, the new health care benefit will apply to ALL residents, without regard to immigration status.

How will all this be paid for?

Well, this IS liberal paradise, where the T word---taxes--- is king, or queen, to be more precise.

Employers and those with the unmitigated gall to earn a decent wage will be coughing up extra dollars to fund this latest surrender to socialsim.

But according to local media, everyone should celebrate a great day of accomplishment by The City's Best and Brightest.

And why not?

After all, these liberal fog-heads have done their utmost to drive away those institutions and individuals that provide jobs, make The City work and pay taxes.

To offset the loss of productive contributors, the Supervisors have issued a warm welcome to those dependent on public handouts, and who pay no taxes.

Longtime local columnist Herb Cain, now deceased, once called San Francisco "Baghdad by the Bay."

To be brutally honest, these days even Baghdad seems more sane than The City.
