Health care in the country has always been a major problem.
While there are some in Congress that embrace the idea of universal health care, state and local Democrats have apparently decided they can't wait any longer and are moving forward with plans.
One of whom is our own Governor Gavin Newsom:
"Premiums are going up, deductibles are getting higher, people are feeling stress and anxiety about what's happening or not happening federally."
Newsom says his ideal situation would be to create a single-payer system in the state.
"You look around the rest of the world, they're just rolling their eyes, higher life expectancy...This is ludicrous, and so it's incumbent upon governors, mayors to take the lead, in the absence of the federal government doing its job."
