California: Democrat gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom vowed to implement universal healthcare in the the state and will grant medical services to illegal aliens through executive order. He bragged about bringing universal healthcare to San Francisco and promised that the state will have it “fully implemented, regardless of pre-existing conditions, ability to pay, and regardless of your immigration status.”

Gary Gileno says Newsom is up in the polls by 20 points and is likely to win the governor’s office. He includes video testimony of a doctor saying that women from China, Vietnam, Mexico, and all over the world come to California to give birth to obtain US citizenship and to have 100% of their medical bill paid by taxpayers. -GEG

FAVREAU: How do you plan to get single-payer health care passed?

NEWSOM: It needs to be pulled into the governor’s office. The executive needs to lead it. Obamacare would not have happened if it was just exclusively a legislative fiat — that said — and Nancy Pelosi did a magical job of organizing it, but it required the concerted contributions of the president of the United States. The only way in a state whose population that is larger than 163 nations — California — whose economy is larger than all of four nations — fifth largest economy — to approximate a strategy for universal health care with the support and concurrence of the governor. Frankly, that’s not an indictment, it’s just what’s been missing in the past. So, I’d bring that into my office. I brought it well beyond a bill that basically started a process. If you read 562, the vast majority of elected officials that were for and against it didn’t — Did not. For and against did not, because they would have actually known what it said.

It would have created a committee that began a process to come up with a strategy and a plan to finance and organize with 34 prescribed benefits, a universal strategy for single-payer financing. That process can be done without a bill. That process should be done by the next governor and I’m committed to it for no other reason than health care is devouring our budget. Health care in this state is the biggest driver of our unfunded retirement benefits. It’s a driver of a lot of our costs, not the least of which at the UC and CSU. I serve on both those boards. Tuition is impacted by the costs of employment, personnel costs are impacted by health care. It’s the issue that animates most of the voters I talk to, still, even in this post-Obamacare world. The inflationary burdens are self-evident and the vandalism these guys are doing on the federal level is only going to make things worse. I’d like to see if we could control our own destiny. 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 Franciso is the only universal health care plan 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 extended to the rest of the state.

You are wrong, Mr. Griffin. In spite of being the minority party in California, John Cox managed to win one of only two positions in our abysmal Top Two vote scheme, showing how angry much of the voters of this state are at the Democrats. Life here is frustrating to me as a registered Independent and among all my similarly registered friends, and among Republicans, and even among quite a few Democrats. And Independents are about 40% of registered voters, so we have a good chance of voting in John Cox. I ask you please to stop running such pessimistic… Read more »
