California Senate mandates for 100% renewable energy

A new poll indicates that most Californians support changing the state's vast, insurance-based medical care system to one in which the state provides universal coverage.

The study was sponsored by the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United, which has supported the bill since it was first introduced.

SB 562 now moves to the Assembly for consideration. The Healthy California Act proposes to pay this with a modest tax of 2.3 percent on gross business revenue receipts in excess of $2 million.

On Thursday both the Senate and the Assembly approved measures to speed housing creation by streamlining building regulations.

It also assumes that California can properly manage a single payer system.

To the spirit of the bill, the authors concluded that it would also provide full coverage to the roughly one-third of Californians who are now uninsured or underinsured.

One bill was backed by environmental justice groups who want to add air quality regulations to the program. "And the message to those people who say we're irresponsible, I tell you do not judge us based upon a vote in a day; judge us based upon our work at the end of the day". The prospect of an unvetted bill with hundreds of billions of dollars in proposed annual costs becomes even less sensible in light of the state's inability to balance the budget it already has.

"The Senate has voted to give Californians a false promise that is unaffordable and unworkable", state Senate Republican Leader Patricia Bates, R-Laguna Niguel, said. The state Assembly will consider the bill next.

Using President Donald Trump as a cautionary tale, California lawmakers are pressing legislation forward that would require tax transparency from potential candidates.

Berryhill also said he doesn't trust the government "to run our health system".

The question right now is even more basic.

An Assembly-passed bill says state and local police won't have to help enforce federal anti-marijuana laws that conflict with California's decision to legalize the drug.

From there, they determine how much health care utilization would increase under single payer.

The previous analysis cautioned that a "mature healthcare system" would require a tremendous transition to a single-payer model and that it could not account for future behaviors. The report concluded that, under the single-payer plan, health expenditures in the state would be around $400 billion per year, or 15% of California's GDP. Four anti-gun bills and one pro-hunting bill have satisfied this deadline and will continue to move through the legislative process.

"The study notes 36 percent of all insured Californians, 12 million people, remain underinsured - paying for premiums but often unable to access care due to high out of pocket costs - and another 7.5 percent, 2.7 million Californians, remain fully uninsured, even with improvements under the Affordable Care Act", the union said. The state also doesn't know whether Congress will slash health care funding by repealing the Affordable Care Act.
