Cal Legislature Set to Pass $400 Billion Healthcare Takeover

by CHRISS W. STREET

The Democrat-controlled Legislature’s efforts to establish ‘Healthy California Act’ as a $400 billion a year takeover of the state’s $400 billion in healthcare is about to pass.
With Obamacare either being rescinded by Congressional Republicans or bankrupting due to spiraling costs, the Democrat-controlled California Legislature is set to vote by June 2 on taking over 17.8 percent of the state’s $2.3 trillion gross domestic product. The legislation, officially titled SB-562, would convert the state’s Knox-Keene Health Care Service Plan Act of 1975 that regulates health maintenance organizations (HMO), into a universal state-run single-payer health plan.

Socialized medicine has been the Democrat’s top social justice goal since President Harry Truman, just seven months after Franklin D. Roosevelt’s death. Truman proposed a five-point “universal” national health insurance program in his first address to a joint-session of Congress by declaring:

Millions of our citizens do not now have a full measure of opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health. Millions do not now have protection or security against the economic effects of sickness. The time has arrived for action to help them attain that opportunity and that protection.

    Here is the good news! Every free loader in the US will come here as the other States figF out that they only need say, want Free?? Go to CA! Congress will be under far less pressure as they replace with a more free market option.

    This demographic shift will remove enough freeloaders from the other States to shift several from purple to red, blue to purple and redden the others. The electoral votes for the Repubs as well as Senate and House seats will be solid red.
    The other good news is that all the union retireees will lose their golden private health care, soo they will not be solid Dems. The State will not have the money to pay fat union pensions so those people arescrewed! No tears here! They might not ne obedient little donkeys any more! If our tax dollars are wasted, whether its on fat Union employee pensions of Govt free health care, what does it matter to the taxpayer??
