Single Payer Insurance in Cali?
I know, I know - people need healthcare.
So what - people need food too but people still have to pay for it.
California is set to vote on a bill which would provide healthcare to all of its 39 million residents at a cost of $400 bn. (Some studies say that the program would save the state $37 ml annually)
-The Veterans Health Administration covers about nine million individuals.
-Indian Health Services covers about 2.2 ml Native Americans.
-Medicaid/Medicare cover another 44 ml people.
Why can't all of these programs be combined under one umbrella program?
Add to this another 11 ml covered by Obama care.
I'm sure if these programs were merged that they could be used as a template for Universal Health Care for the entire country.
