"Why do Democrats hate us working people so much, and love the losers?"

So said a comment to an article from the San Francisco Chronicle, which announced that the California State Senate passed a single-payer health care bill along party lines with a vote of 22-14.

The bill will go to the Assembly, which will undoubtedly pass the bill as well, seeing as how they are even more loony left than the Senate. Mercifully, I have been assured by an anonymous source at the Capitol that Governor Schwarzenegger will veto the bill should it come across his desk.

This health care plan would cost California taxpayers about $200 billion dollars a year and would receive its funding from a payroll tax. A PAYROLL TAX! That would mean, once again, that the working stiffs in this state would subsidize the lazy and indolent. Yeah, yeah, there would be a sob story in there somewhere, but the exceptions to the rule do not require a massive new entitlement like this that California could ill-afford, seeing as how we are $20 billion in the hole as we speak, and just today, our state's controller announced that the state is set to run out of money on April 1st.

If I didn't know any better, I would say that certain members of our state's legislature are purposely trying to destroy the once great state of California. They would deny it of course, but I'm sure you know the old saying regarding actions vs. words.

Good Day to You, Sir
