California’s single-payer health care dream should be called single PRAYER, because it doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of working

For the most part, when the government is put in charge of things, those things tend to get worse and not better. As the late Ronald Reagan once said, “government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem.” With respect to healthcare, Reagan’s words hold true – more government is, indeed, the problem.

As it turns out, the liberals in California have yet to learn this important lesson. On Friday, State Senator Ricardo Lara introduced legislation that would transition California’s healthcare into a single-payer system. (RELATED: Read what a retired colonel said about the real purpose of Obamacare). The system would be very similar to the healthcare system currently in place in Canada and would cost California taxpayers roughly $40 billion for the first year alone. Given the poor economic climate California has already created for itself, this will no doubt be just one more burden on the people of California, and one step closer towards total bankruptcy.

Micah Weinberg, the president of the Economic Institute at the Bay Area Council, raised concerns over the financial consequences of the proposed legislation. “Where are they going to come up with the $40 billion?” he asked. He went on to suggest that adopting a state level single-payer system is “just not feasible to do as a state.”
