Don’t Gamble on Single Payer

SB 562 would establish a state-run single-payer health care system.  All Californians will lose their current health plans, to be replaced by government run health care, with benefits yet to be determined, to be serviced by a government-run entity populated with political appointees yet to be identified, to include provision yet to be named – all paid for by a doubling of your annual tax bill.                         All SB562 Resources & Talking Points
