‘Medicare for all’ fails again
Colusa Sun Herald

Californians dodged the bullet on universal health care insurance once again when Senate Bill 810 was narrowly defeated last week, falling only two votes short of passage in the state Senate. After the vote, Democratic Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg said he didn’t believe the bill would be approved and signed into law this year.

As bad an idea as the so-called “Medicare for all” legislation is, it is certain to return, as it has, in one form or another, for years, if for no other reason than to keep the issue alive.
