(TheRedAlertNews.com) – One would think that if any state in the United States of America could pass and enact legislation creating a universal health care system, it would be the extremely liberal state of California.
Not only couldn’t the Democrats in the state legislature push through universal health care yesterday, but they also couldn’t even muster enough of their party to move the legislation to a vote.
According to Newsweek:
“The California State Assembly failed to pass a bill aimed at introducing a system of universal health care on Monday despite the fact that Democrats have a substantial majority in the chamber.
“The bill’s author, Assemblyman Ash Kalra, decided not to bring the bill up for a vote because Democrats didn’t have the support to pass it, despite controlling 56 of the assembly’s 80 seats.
“The proposal needed to pass by midnight on Monday to have a chance of becoming law this year and Democrats required 41 votes to pass it, but that support was apparently not forthcoming.” [emphasis added]
Newsweek also notes what most political analysts and pundits believe: “The bill’s death in the state assembly may be interpreted as a warning sign to Democrats nationwide who support a universal health-care system.”
