Posing as a tough guy, California democratic Governor Gavin Newsom blustered to Politico that national Republicans are destined for the “waste bin of history.”

Politico stated that Newsom ebulliently stated that his achievements in the first six months of his tenure as governor have been “magnificent.” The ambitious governor, who seemingly has his eyes set on a 2024 presidential run, dismissed the notion that his recent deal with California legislators (the state legislature is dominated by Democrats, with two-thirds supermajorities in both chambers) on health care for some illegal immigrants would give fodder to those who dislike him, saying, “If it’s not this, it’s ten other things. If I’m going to be worried about Donald Trump’s feelings and Tucker Carson’s feelings and Fox News’ feelings, then I won’t be taking care of the people in this state. I won’t be doing justice. to millions and millions of Californians who will benefit from our health care expansions, the biggest expansion [to benefit] the middle class – something no one thought was achievable few years back.”

Newsom said confidently that during Trump’s tenure, national Republicans “are into the politics of what California was into in the 1990s … and they’ll go the same direction — into the waste bin of history, the way Republicans of the ’90s have gone. That’s exactly what will happen to this crop of national Republicans.”

Newsom has plans for the American health care system, championing universal health care, gushing, “We’re going to get it. We’re committed to universal health care. Universal health care means everybody … We will lead a massive expansion of health care, and that’s a major deviation from the past.’’

Last month, Newsom opined that California’s homeless problem was a “national disgrace.” Newsom wanted to look everywhere but in his own backyard to find the source of the problem; Steven Greenhut, the Western region director for R Street Institute, told the Catholic Register in 2018 that he blamed the lack of adequate housing in California on the state, asserting, “We’ve screwed up the whole housing market through all these regulations.” The Catholic Register noted, “Local fees on building can add an additional 6% to 18% to the cost of a home. Energy-efficiency regulations add to the cost of a home as well: A recently enacted California rule mandating solar panels on nearly all new home construction will add about $10,000 to the total cost. In Los Angeles, energy-efficiency requirements increase building costs by 10%.”

Kathleen Domingo, director of the office of Life, Justice and Peace in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, added, “We’ve known that we were going to have a housing shortage for years, and we just didn’t prioritize building houses. Because we haven’t prioritized housing, and in a particular way lower-income housing, for those who are being forced out, or are coming here for opportunities, there’s nowhere to look.”
