“Somehow Japan and England and Canada and Germany, France, they all [with single payer socialized medical systems] figured health care out...... "
Late night leftist La La Land millionaire healthcare clown Jimmy Kimmel admitting his utter stupidity and ignorance on the issue of healthcare reform joked on his show that he's "an expert on eating pizza, not healthcare." And so he clownishly is. For who but an unfunny, know nothing, leftist dope and resident of LA would point to single payer countries like Canada, England and France as models for the USA when single payer badly flopped in Jimmy's own state of California - flopped not once, not twice, not thrice, but a total of SEVEN times over the last 25 years (see). 25 years and 7 attempts at single payer and no leftist mastermind or genius (who makes Jimmy look like spit) can figure out how to make it work. Why? Because of the prohibitive, staggering, economy crushing costs. But moronic, unfunny, pizza expert Jimmy, who lectures the GOP, you and me and physicians like Senator Cassidy on healthcare (and calls him a liar when he clearly distorts what he says see) wants Obamacare repealed like Donald Trump; but stupidly replaced with unworkable single payer as the national system for America.
Think about it: with a population of 40 million and roughly 13.6 million taxpayers the costs for California single payer would be (if evenly spread) $30,000 per tax payer in the first year, and $15,000 every year in perpetuity for annual costs. If SB 562 was passed and signed into law the next bill would be for the largest tax hike of any state in US history; this would effectively drive millions of citizens and thousands of businesses (but not rich clown Jimmy) out of the state leaving it a wreck like a San Andreas earthquake. In other words, the cure of single payer for California is worse than the disease of millions lacking health insurance (who get healthcare anyway); for the impact on California's economy (with so much money flowing to Sacramento away from consumers and the private sector) would be a jobs killing, depression causing disaster - for everyone but rich, unfunny, pizza men like Jimmy. And this is why Governor Brown refused to endorse the bill; and why it was shelved in the State Assembly following SB 840, 810, 2123 and other failed single payer bills over the years.
