" Turns out it's simple for a Democratic legislature to pass single-payer under a Republican Guv, yet despite having a Democrat in workplace, it's success is far from guaranteed. So an immediate job for supporters is to encourage Gov. Jerry Brown that now is the time.
What's different now? Initially, whatever form ACA "repeal and change" inevitably takes, Californians are not going to let Democrats just criticize the GOP when Democrats manage all branches of federal government below. Neither need to they. If the ACA was a compromise with national political pressures, there's no reason The golden state need to simply attempt to patch it up after it's taken down. Neither would it be easy to ask those that presently have health care advantages to totally pay for any kind of loss of insurance coverage they might suffer in the wake of GOP-led health and wellness reform. From a policy viewpoint, the complexity of the ACA's financing as well as expansion of insurance coverage could be changed by the less complex system of single-payer, which accomplishes better price financial savings and also more comprehensive client selection, while maintaining extensive advantages." *.
