The proposal includes a 15% tax on employers' earned income to help pay for the program. Given the overwhelming support for progressive policies in the state, I'm sure business owners will be happy to give significant portions of their profits by paying more taxes in order to provide health care for all Californians and illegals....right?

I'm curious if Californians will put their money where their mouth is. I hope so.

Also, this will be another test to see if universal health care is fiscally sustainable. It wasn't in Vermont. https://www.forbes.com/sites/theapot.../#6f8f60804850

Maybe, but I know my neighbor's aunt flies here almost monthly from Mexico City over the last year since she was diagnosed with MS. They do fairly well.

Meh, that'll be a drop in the drop in the bucket for Hollywood and Silicon Valley. Now let's see if they're willing to do more than just lip service or try to slog this onto the dwindling middle class.
