Did someone tell that to Jerry Brown
"I don't even get it," said the governor. "How do you do that?"
TextHe pointed out that the overall cost of medical care in California is equal to 18% of the state's gross domestic product, which would be about $450 billion.

Are you of the opinion that the person serving you breakfast wants to be on public ass? Either your breakfast is $4.99 with public ass or $5.99 with out.

Well, removing California with it's super high medical wages from Blue Cross and regular insurance should drop everyone's insurance costs in the country to affordable levels. I bet their insurance will cover plastic surgery in California. I bet they have no idea how much their cost is going to be. I bet they will have a huge tax on everyone.

As much as I want government in health care I don't think single payer is the right solution, as it will be too expensive. I'd like to see government run clinics with lower costs than private ones for normal people who don't have tons of money, and leave the private health crime industry intact for all the wealthy people. That way you help poor people while maintaining a private industry.
You can't have free healthcare because then everyone will be there all the time. It needs to cost, but less then the corporate healthcare. Then you could have cheaper insurance that would only allow you to go to gubmint clinics and the business people can still have their cadillac insurance and to to expensive doctors.
