Why No Mention Of Single Payer Bill In California ?

Original post made by Anon., Crescent Park, on Jan 28, 2012

Did I miss it or was there absolutely nothing in the news, or here about Senate Bill 810 authored by Mark Leno that was voted on today 19 to 15? 4 Democrats abstained from voting on the bill. There was just nothing on this, although the bill does not have any section to determine how to pay for what the story I read said would be $250 billion …. which is an odd number consider that $800 billion was the cost for the whole country over 10 years.

This will only pass when the people hear about it and demand it be voted it … and that is coming like it or not, and I bet it would have passed if people knew about it … so let's not hear any more from the Republicans about the Liberal media, how about it.

From Wikipedia:
In the state legislature Palo Alto is located in the 11th Senate District, represented by Democrat Joe Simitian, and in the 21st Assembly District, represented by Democrat Rich Gordon.

Joe Simitian & Rich Gordon …. where are you on this issue and why ?
