Can your family afford an extra $10,000/yr in taxes? #singlepayer #CAPolitics https://t.co/bUWnhUJPJR— HJTA.org (@HJTA) May 7, 2017
Under a single-payer system, health care would be financed through taxing people to support a government-run program rather than through having them or their employers pay for private health insurance coverage. Doing that would require a massive tax increase on California families along with huge pay cuts for nurses, doctors and other health care professionals. And, it would spell the end of the employer-sponsored insurance that half the state relies on and values.
