If you think health care is expensive now just wait until it’s free…
Government run healthcare, known as “single payer healthcare for all”, proposed for CA under SB 562 will cost $400 BILLION A YEAR! That’s more than twice the entire state budget! Costing around $22,000 for every employed person in California – that’s a massive new tax to pay for “free” healthcare for all!
Replacing health insurance and premiums, you pay higher taxes — upwards of a 15% payroll tax on workers! A nine-member panel would control all healthcare decisions in the state — creating a new government bureaucracy.
Despite all this, SB 562 passed the Senate floor this week and is headed to the Assembly, where I will see it in Assembly Health committee.
Competition is the best way to keep costs low — not one giant government program!
