A sweeping measure that would establish government-run universal healthcare in California cleared its first legislative hurdle Wednesday as scores of supporters crammed into the Capitol to advocate for a single-payer system.

The Senate Health Committee approved the measure on a 5-2 vote after a nearly three-hour hearing, but Democrats and Republicans alike signaled unease with the major question still unanswered in the legislation: how the program would be paid for.

The bill, SB 562, would establish a publicly run healthcare plan that would cover everyone living in California, including those without legal immigration status. The proposal would drastically reduce the role of insurance companies: The state would pay for all medical expenses, including inpatient, outpatient, emergency services, dental, vision, mental health and nursing home care.

The measure says the program would be funded by “broad-based revenue,” but does not specify where that money would come from.

    “Broad based revenue” Does that meant the US taxpayer will get stuck bailing these idiots out?

    As they flee the other Democrat utopias because of the crime, taxes, chaos, and the prevailing Trumpian common sense, neer-do-well parasites will flock to California and absolutely overwhelm their social services. But hey –that’s what they want in California !!!
