While the fight for Repeal and Replace of Obamacare has just begun in congress, Californiastan is set to do what progressives in Washington REALLY wanted to do in the first place, set up a single-payer national health care system.
….the state of California is talking about going its own way and instituting a single-payer health care system for state residents.
Such a system would allow the state to designate an agency to serve as an insurer; all residents would pay into that agency which would, in turn, pay doctors and hospitals when residents needed medical care.
According to the Los Angeles Times, single-payer health care has long been a goal of progressives in California. Bills to establish it were passed in 2006 and 2008 but were vetoed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Now, however, advocates say the combination of a pending Obamacare repeal and the Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) push for such a single-payer system during the presidential election may have set the stage for securing the one-size-fits-all system.
