Jimmy Dore, Stef Zamorano, & Dave Dayen on this week's Hostile Progressives. The triad speak about single-payer healthcare, Dave's post in The Intercept, as well as Prop 98. Ron Placone joins and Michael Lighty, Supervisor of Public law from the CNA, skypes into speak about the healthcare expense.

Learn more below:

" IN THE DAYS GIVEN THAT California Setting up Audio speaker Anthony Rendon shelved for the year SB562, which intends to establish a state single-payer health care system, he's been subject to mass protests or even fatality risks. The bill's principal backers, consisting of the California Nurses Association as well as the Bernie Sanders-affiliated Our Transformation, angrily point to Rendon as the main obstruction to really universal health care.

They're entirely wrong. Exactly what's more, they understand they're wrong. They're perfectly mindful that SB562 is a shell costs that could not end up being law without a ballot procedure accepted by citizens. Rather than committing to increasing the numerous dollars that would certainly be had to get rid of unique rate of interests and pass that effort, they would certainly, obviously, rather trick their fans, concealing the truths of California's woeful political framework in favor of a principles play created to progress careers as well as aggrandize power.

That may appear extreme. It's gentle." *.

    Shouldn’t the title say Democrats are blocking Single payer healthcare? I mean there’s no way to blame Republicans on this!

      anthony lockwood There was evidently. He started off by blaming suburban conservatives for not paying property taxes.

    • Posted by PresBarack, at Reply

      anthony lockwood that single payer bill calls for a 15% payroll tax, it would increase what I pay from $47 with tricare to over $400 a month, that’s crazy! It would make me leave California

    nonsense…what stopped Cali single payer was the bought-and-paid-for Dem politicians who never had any intention of delivering single payer and only played up the bill so that the healthcare insurance companies would have to pay donations…check the bank account of the politician who wrote the bill…

      alreid09 which means everyone who wants single payer doesn’t have a job!

    • Posted by alreid09, at Reply

      stephen mroz Actually it means the OP did not know that or is ignoring that fact. Which could mean they are not getting that benefit from his or her job. Most countries in the EU have single payer, it is not mandatory for every job in the US to give you health insurance.

      alreid09 yea and most countrys in the EU you have to wait months that you don’t have for cancer treatment.

      You say that like it’s a joke, but we all know you sit around watching anime all day down in your mom’s basement, and probably do wish you were an anime character.

      Thats how I became an anime character I watched tv and the tv sucked me into the anime world. I am currently deaf andseeking a relationship with a cute highschool boy name ishida. He almost died because of me and it made me feel so guilty inside :(.

    You write up a single-payer bill that implements single-payer in the State and also kills Prop 98. Two birds with one stone.

    • Posted by Jeremy Ellwood, at Reply

      Simply write up an exclusionary bill for Single payer.

    • Posted by Paul Dormody, at Reply

      Or write up a new prop that excludes Healthcare from prop 98.

  12. Posted by cne08, at Reply

    Even though every study proves that countries like my country of Canada that have single payer healthcare have a better healthcare than America, right wing nut jobs believe right wing “news” outlets that say how “bad’ single payer healthcare. Right wing nut jobs also don’t understand that free healthcare doesn’t literally mean free healthcare. Frere healthcare means people pay little or nothing for doctor and hospital visits, operations, and prescription drugs.

    Single Payer is a failure! Healthcare only works in a free market! Leftards need to learn basic economics.

    • Posted by MoppyPuppy, at Reply

      He got the idea that the V.A. is single payer from Prager U.

    • Posted by spendle, at Reply

      Allow me to fix the free market statements in this comment thread: “Health care doesn’t work in a corporatist system.” I can agree that the American health care system sucks a fat one, but that’s because it’s not free market.

    • Posted by spendle, at Reply

      And yes, HMOs are government created. Look up the HMO Act of 1973.

    • Posted by Amber L., at Reply

      spendle The American healthcare system sucks because not everybody is guaranteed coverage, thus being responsible for more deaths than single-payer ever will.

    I’m all for single payer, but as an educator, slashing school funding is not the answer. Districts are already cutting jobs and budgets for the public school system. Taking from the have-nots is not going to be a viable solution

    • Posted by T. Nguyen, at Reply

      Haha. Yeah, I mean surely I’m missing something here because Jimmy is usually a strong proponent of education, so I was a bit confused with the dialogue. I already teach 38 kids per class at a high school in the OC, have to travel between three classrooms, and get paid rather poorly relative to other jobs of my education level (I have a BA and Master’s). And let’s not forget all the layoffs that happened only a few years ago in California, where many teachers were afraid to get pink slipped for no reason other than a lack of funding.

    we will never be a single payer country. get over it and stop trying to shove this shitty socialized propaganda down our throat

    • Posted by uriel30, at Reply

      +SFH SFH Also look at at the states that are in the red most are lead by Republican Governors. Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Maine. Most Federally Dependent States are in the south with the stupid people. In other words, they need the Federal Government to help them from not being bankrupt.

      Infinite Fantasy if you don’t want to be forced to pay for my health, then why should I be forced to pay for your security? Warmonger.

    • Posted by ScarabaeusSacer9, at Reply

      Infinite Fantasy also it’s not a stale argument. Paying for universal healthcare is exactly like paying for the military. If your life only matters to you and if you think that everyone is responsible or themselves then why do you want a taxpayer funded military? But I guess you’ll never understand because it’s hard to reason with people who believe in American exceptionalism

    Considering California has the largest economy in the US, and a lot of wealthy landowners live in and corporations do business in California, you could just raise the property and business taxes again slightly.

    • Posted by Brass 'n Barrels Firearms Channel, at Reply

      that literally never happens

    • Posted by meh757, at Reply

      you mean your corporate/rep masters say that never happens the numbers from everywhere else that have done single payer say otherwise

    • Posted by Mike, at Reply

      And when taxes are raised, watch all of those people move out of state for the majority of the year to dodge the taxes. And watch those businesses move to other states with lower tax rates.

    • Posted by R Vanzo, at Reply

      Why not put a 100% tax over incomes that exceedes 10% of the average income?

    • Posted by Mike, at Reply

      @R Vanzo – I don’t expect a 100% to pass at a federal or state level. Maybe if it were around 60% or so. It would pass in some states. But then you have like I said previously – they will get permanent residency in a state without those taxes. Then they will only live in high-tax states part of the year to avoid permanent residency.

    It’s time for the people of California to come to grips with the fact that if they want single payer, the people of California are going to have to pay for it and that’s a big obstacle. They want somebody else to pay for it. Maybe they think there is a health insurance tooth fairy someplace who will come up with the dough.

      At least he gets his knee taken care of. Tens of thousands of Canadians don’t die every year because they didn’t get healthcare.

    • Posted by mus5599, at Reply

      Like Jimmy said, who pays for coverage in other countries. Even Mexico has universal HC. Go there. Notice that even the poorest people have braces in their mouths.

    • Posted by Of Woodbridge and Hedgely, at Reply

      _He’d come to this country to have it done in a heartbeat if he could afford it but he’s trapped with a very sore knee because he can’t afford to come here to have it taken care of_ Most Canadians like their system and are horrified at the US system. You’re making the argument for universal healthcare: he can’t afford to get it fixed in the US, but at least Canada will fix it. There are lots of US citizens that also can’t afford to get things fixed in the US but they just have to suffer. 45,000 end up dying because they can’t afford to go to the doctor for skin cancer or similar conditions so they just let it go. Under Trumpcare that number will go up to 70,000
