California Senate OKs single-payer health plan

San Francisco Chronicle, January 29, 2010

The California Senate has passed a measure to create a state-run, single-payer health system. The proposal would create the California Health System, which would be funded by pooling all federal and state money California currently spends on healthcare and a yet-to-be-determined payroll tax. All state residents would be provided healthcare and people could buy private healthcare to cover services not offered through the state plan, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
