Senate bill 562
SB 562 would establish a state-run single-payer health care system. All Californians will lose their current health plans, to be replaced by government run health care, with benefits yet to be determined, to be serviced by a government-run entity populated with political appointees yet to be identified, to include provisions yet to be named – all paid for by a doubling of your annual tax bill.
The Assembly formed a Select Committee on Health Care Delivery Systems and Universal Coverage as a way to explore the issues linked to SB 562. Information on the Committee can be found here.
Presentations, biographies of presenters, and other informaton on the hearings can be found here.
