California’s single-payer plan costs $400 billion — twice the state’s entire budget – Vox

Please, please go single payer, but 1st you must exit the union. I don’t want to be around to bail you out when you wake from your socialist dream, broke and looking for someone to blame for your failure. Californias new motto: I Love Detroit.

“It’s a very generous proposal, as currently conceived. The state would pay for almost all of its residents’ medical expenses — inpatient, outpatient, emergency services, dental, vision, mental health, and nursing home care — under the plan, and Californians would not have any premiums, copays, or deductibles. Those sweeping benefits drive up costs.

The major test for any effort to create a single-payer health care system is how to pay for it. California now knows the math it’s contending with. The plan, according to the estimate by the state Senate’s Appropriations Committee, would cost twice as much as the entire state budget that Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing for the next fiscal year.”
