California is closer than ever to achieving affordable universal health care for all. Special interests are now trying to undo our progress and force everyone into a new, untested health system.
California has led the nation in expanding access to affordable coverage. Despite our progress, special interests in Sacramento are pushing legislation to create a single payer health system in California.
A single payer system would force all 40 million Californians out of their existing coverage – including Medicare, employer-based coverage, and Covered California plans – and into a new government plan with no ability for consumers to opt out or choose private coverage. Californians should have the right to choose private coverage if they want it.
A single payer healthcare system would cost taxpayers nearly $250 billion annually in higher taxes on jobs, income, services, and more. That’s over $2 trillion in new taxes in the first decade alone – all to fund a massive untested government program.
Californians need a stable health care system we can rely on at all times. Instead, single payer legislation puts patient care in jeopardy. A single payer system would eliminate patients’ choice of physicians, hospitals, and other providers and we would lose doctors to other states, leading to longer wait times and reduced access to care.
