California Democrats revive universal health plan

New York Times, January 22, 2010

Democrats in California have revived a bill that would create a single-payer, universal healthcare system in the state. The author of the California bill, State Senator Mark Leno, said that the bill was basically a long-planned reintroduction of a 2009 proposal that was tabled because of its potential cost. The bill is not the first attempt to set up a single-payer system in California, which has some 6.5 million uninsured. Two previous single-payer bills were passed by the legislature in recent years, only to be vetoed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
