A single-payer healthcare system in California — a galvanizing cause among the state’s progressive flank — would cost $400 billion annually, according to a legislative analysis released on Monday.
The analysis found that the proposal would require:
– A total cost of $400 billion per year to cover all healthcare and administrative costs.
– Of that, $200 billion of existing federal, state and local funds could be repurposed to go toward the single-payer system.
– The additional $200 billion would need to be raised from new taxes.
LMAO oh California, where the hell do you get off thinking you can afford to implement a $400 BILLION dollar healthcare plan?
First you have the giant challenge of re-routing a whopping $200 BILLION dollars of the existing budget. I’m wondering what other tax-funded programs will suffer because of this. Education? Corrections? The Oroville Dam?
Secondly, you’ll need to raise and additional $200 billion by taxing your resident. California has an estimated population of 39.14 million, so if you were to tax every man, woman and child it would cost every resident approximately $5,109.86 per year.
But of course, you can’t tax the children, or the several million illegal immigrants working in the state, so naturally the cost gets even higher for taxpayers and small business owners.
Oh, I almost forgot the best part:
Under the bill, the state would cover medical care for every resident in California, including those without legal immigration status.
Bahahahahahah you’ve got to be kidding me. You plan on covering people who aren’t even citizens of the country? And who don’t pay taxes? And are criminals? And Governor Brown calls us a bunch of “freeloaders.”
If other states were smart, they’d offer one way tickets to California on a Greyhound bus for any illegal immigrants. Naturally, they should be deported upon arrival, but knowing Governor Moonbeam he’d welcome them with open arms and give them all sorts of free goodies like free welfare, education, and now healthcare.
