It's so simple.  Raise some taxes and let everyone see a doctor.  Right????

Meanwhile, Medi-Cal recipients can't see doctors anyway.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Democrats on Monday failed to gather enough support to advance a government-funded universal health care system, succumbing to intense pressure from business groups and the insurance industry in an election year.

The bill had to pass by midnight on Monday to have a chance at becoming law this year. But it never came up for a vote after its Democratic author, Assemblymember Ash Kalra, realized it would not pass.

"It became clear that we did not have the votes necessary for passage, and I decided the best course of action is to not put AB 1400 for a vote today," Kalra said.

Well, the dems are in charge, and that surplus isn't going to be used for universal health care for their citizens.

The feds can't be tapped - all their money is earmarked by the current administration for the war machine. I guess bullets and bombs beat bandages and beds again, in democrat politics.

He covered many people from cradle to grave. It was a good system, while it lasted.

Hitler and Mussolini are not the bad guys they're portrayed by the victors !

In fact they'd never ever have allowed the depravity that is taking over the Western civilization these days !
LGBTV+ whatever the **** they call them . . . would have never come about as long as they were in charge !
And certainly not gay "marriage" !

What a **** aberration of the notion of a FAMILY !

And that is probably the reason why they were eliminated .

Trains and camps - that's my prescription.

Why might California have the highest level of debt among US states?

They tax just about everything in California. Perhaps there is a need for government but all you hear is we need more funding. Personally, I think some government can be done without, taxes aren't necessarily a Robin Hood formula.

Tax money breeds corruption too. Government has a habit of being unaccountable. Social security probably is positive but some government can be done without.

Government can always be improved on. Waste fraud and abuse should be weeded out. In our democracy it is incumbent on the citizens to monitor their government.
The Republican party is a party that represents oligarchs whose only concern is tax cuts for the rich.
They do not give a **** about good government bad government or any kind of government they just want to keep their **** money.

That was not an invitation to bloviate.

Your answer was wrong.

So why does gas cost 7 dollars a gallon in California and they can't balance their budget?

California gasoline is a different recipe.

It is ALWAYS more expensive.
and they can't balance their budget?
What is California's projected deficit for this year?


If I don't see an answer to the question asked, I'm done.
