Gavin Newsom Reveals Plan For Single-Payer Healthcare In California 'Regardless Of Immigration Status'

The article wrote:
California gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom doubled down on claims he made earlier this month that he'd turn California into a single-payer healthcare state, telling the Pod Save America podcast that he plans on expanding Medicare to cover every Californian — even illegal immigrants.

“I’d like to see if we can control our own destiny,” Newsom, the former mayor of San Francisco, said. “I’m not naive about it. I did universal health care when I was mayor, fully implemented regardless of pre-existing conditions, ability to pay, and regardless of your immigration status."

“San Francisco is the only universal health care system for all undocumented residents in America, very proud of that. We proved it could be done without bankrupting the city. I’d like to see that we can extend that to the rest of the state,” he continued.

Newsom, of course, was mayor of San Francisco, a city that's in dire financial straits and struggling to manage simple tasks like cleaning human feces off its sidewalks as a result of some of its bizarre, far-left policies.

But that won't stop Newsom, and neither will a likely $400 billion-per-year anticipated price tag. In fact, he's actually not that worried about the cost; he's more worried about transitioning to a single-payer healthcare program.

“It’s the transition that’s the challenge,” he said. “It’s going from something old to something new, where the whitewater is.”

It may be more of a challenge than he thinks: doctors and California's healthcare administrators are against the prospect of a fully single-payer system, largely because it will tank their salaries, and they're planning on opposing any legislation designed to make big changes.

Newsom doesn't seem worried, and he certainly doesn't seem worried about his electoral chances. He's widely seen as the favorite to win the California gubernatorial election in November.

I'm unfamiliar with the term "single-payer-healthcare" but I'm guessing it's bad. Even worse is having coverage for illegal immigrants.

The feces thing is true, but the city is fine financially.

No problem. With all the people moving into the area, there should be no problem raising that revenue. :)

Yup, all those homeless people will surely fill the city's coffers.

Not sure why you all think sf is in bad shape. Yes, the budget is large, which is what tends to happen when tax revenues are high. And yes, people are moving out, but that is mostly because they can’t, or don’t want to pay the high cost of living - a cost which is high because the demand to live in sf is much greater than the supply. Neither of these are necessarily good for the city long term, but it they aren’t signs of financial problems.

Nobody being able to afford housing and people and their poop piling up on the streets while people are fleeing the city and it's burning through mountains of cash is definitely a massive gaping financial dysfunction.

I like your 'but'
EDIT: To explain the 'but' thing. It's huge!...
To carry it's own cost is crucial. Mostly in the USofA. No one will wheat a tear eye for you if not. What is necessary for any town is to lever on it's own. If it doesn't it has to rely on an other. The variables will be in the magnitude of a weather prognosis, 2 days ahead.
