Socialized medicine is one of the left’s great obsessions. California lefties have been struggling to figure out how to pay for it.
But that’ll be easy, says Gavin Newsom, the lefty who is probably going to be California’s next Dem boss.
“I’d like to see if we can control our own destiny,” Newsom said. He continued, “I’m not naive about it. I did universal health care when I was Mayor [of San Francisco], 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 Amerca, 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.”
