Here’s a quick update extra for you…remember I blogged a while back about how California was going to go above and beyond Obamacare and institute what they said was “Universal Care”? It was going to insure every citizen and non-citizen in the state with free medical care. Of course, the downside to that was it was going to cost twice as much as every other program the state pays for…tripling the size of the state’s budget and throwing it into immediate bankruptcy.
Well, it’s not going to happen. Assembly speaking Anthony Rendon has said that he’s going to put the brakes on the proposal because it’s “woefully inadequate”, and so he’s not going to pursue it this year at least.
That statement created a collective sigh from Californians who were going to see their taxes triple with the stroke of a pen. So much for “free” healthcare!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
