You won’t believe what California lawmakers just did or maybe you will because of the free-wheeling, no care about anything state that they are.
California lawmakers just passed a $400 billion single payer proposal without a plan to implement the health care system. This is what you call crazy as hell legislation. These people are not thinking of the voters. They want to implement their agenda and dare you to take it away.
When efforts to remove or vote down this legislation occur, emotional liberals will complain you’re trying to hurt the common man and you don’t want sick and elderly people to get better.
It’s an old trick used by the dirtiest political party in history and someone from the Republican side better call this out before it gains legs.

Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, introduced SB 562, a sweeping overhaul of the state’s health insurance market. He’s also the chair of Senate Appropriations. The committee passed the bill with a 5-2 vote during a fast-paced suspense file hearing, clearing the way for it to be taken up on the Senate floor next week.
The vote came days after the committee revealed the Legislature’s first cost assessment of the bill, which turns out to be more than the entire state budget for the year beginning July 1.
Lara has yet to reveal a detailed plan about how the state would come up with the money to provide health care to the nearly 40 million people living in California. Opponents argued that the funding issue should have been addressed before the committee voted on the measure.
“This is the biggest government expansion of a health care system ever, with the exception of maybe the ACA,” said David Wolfe, the legislative director for the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.
“Why would you just mindlessly pass that through without more details? The lack of transparency here is stunning,” he said. “It would be interesting to hypothesize, if it wasn’t the chairman’s bill, would it have been held?”
Lara introduced the bill with Sen. Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, as an attempt to reduce overall health care costs and provide coverage to all Californians. The bill wipes out the private insurance market and allows government to negotiate prices with providers, acting as the “single payer” for everyone’s health care.
Here’s a hard fact. Insurance used to be just for catastrophic care. People paid cash for routine doctor visits, and the costs used to be much lower.
So I would say that most Californians, as well as many businesses, are going to be thrilled about this up until about the time that the tax man comes to collect his due for this overpriced socialist healthcare wealth redistribution scheme right?
I’m wondering if they will pass a bill forcing doctors to work on patients without pay, nurses to help patients for nothing, hospitals to function with no money. Since everyone has a right to health care, that means I have a right to use the doctor’s expertise whether he wants to help me or not.
Maybe it’s great news, right? Now the healthcare bill currently in the Senate needs to be reworked to omit California and to only cover the remaining 49 states. All those millions of illegals in California are now off my tax liability.
What do you think will happen with California’s new legislation? I am not sure about California politics but I think this goes to Governor Jerry Brown who is actually against it because of cost. Will it get past Brown?
