May 24, 2017 California Universal Heathcare

On May 24, 2017 the California State Senate considered Senate Bill 562, proposed by Senators Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, and Toni Atkins, D-San Diego. According to Sacramento Bee’s Angela Hart “The idea behind Senate Bill 562 is to overhaul California’s insurance marketplace, reduce overall health care costs and expand coverage to everyone in the state regardless of immigration status or ability to pay. Instead of private insurers, state government would be the “single payer” for everyone’s health care through a new payroll taxing structure, similar to the way Medicare operates.”
