      On His 1st Day in Office, CA Gov. Gavin Newsom is Requesting Federal Waivers to Allow CA to Create a SINGLE-PAYER/MedicareForAll System

       

      “…2 yrs ago, California Dems killed a state bill to create that system, contingent on such waivers…”

       

      ”…To understand Bernie Sanders’ impact, consider: The Dem governor of America’s most populous state is pushing for single-payer on his first day in office. 3 yrs ago, Dems’ presidential nominee was insisting single payer will “never ever come to pass…”

       

      This is a huge shift. YUGE.

      He’s trying to get ride a wave to the White House. Don’t trust him. That said, we could do a lot worse.

        Far better than the tsunami of bullsquat most upper-tier Dems are surfing these days.

        If you give a man enough rope, it will be six inches too short. This is not the nature of rope- it is the nature of man.

      Rights aren't rights if someone can take them away. They're privileges.
      That's all we've ever had in this country, is a bill of temporary privileges.

        ….how Gavin moves forward with this purposal following Trump’s response. It should become quite clear early on if Gavin’s moves add up to nothing more than political grand-standing theater. Gavin himself decided to open this SinglePayer Pandora’s Box and stroll down this path. You can be rest assured that party activists, National Nurses United, SinglePayer coalition groups will be watching Gavin’s every micro-move like hawks. If he so much as gives the slightest indication of back-tracking & watering down his demands in any way, these groups will gnaw him down to the bone………
