To shore up Obamacare in California, Newsom wants to try an individual mandate
Uncovered California - By Sophia Bollag, Michael Finch II and Sammy Caiola, The USC Center for Health Journalism Collaborative - link

When Kate Green calculated her health care costs last year, it just didn’t add up for her to stay insured.

The 30-year-old worker in a real estate referral company had signed up for the lowest-cost plan possible, but it came with high out-of-pocket costs. Premiums ate up money Green had planned on spending to pay off car and college loans.

The final straw: a $1,200 doctor bill for a minor knee injury.

Green dropped her coverage in late 2018, and the tax penalty for not having insurance disappeared this year for the first time since the launch of the Affordable Care Act. So far, she hasn’t regretted the gamble.

“If I have a life-threatening injury and I get taken to the hospital in an ambulance, yes, right now I’d have hundreds of thousands [in] bills,” the Sacramento resident said. “And if I was insured it might be like tens of thousands. It’s bankrupting me effectively either way.”

When the federal Affordable Care Act first took effect in 2014, Americans had to pay a penalty known as the individual mandate if they didn’t have insurance. Congress has since rolled back the penalty, meaning Green won’t be fined for not having coverage.

But that could change if California Gov. Gavin Newsom recreates the individual mandate at the state level as part of his plan to prop up the state’s health insurance exchange and get more people insured.

Newsom and his legislative allies say they want the state-level mandate to work the same way as the federal one. The goal is to encourage enough healthy people to buy coverage to offset costs from those who need expensive care.

Newsom characterized the mandate as necessary to stabilize the health care system under the Affordable Care Act in the face of the federal government’s “vandalism” of the law.

That's fine, here's how the Constitution was intended to work. Moron inserts an individual mandate and these people leave the state to other less insane surroundings. That was the intent of our Republic, not this top down authoritarian crap. Eventually California will have 2 Senator's, 2 Congressmen / and 4 EC votes. Oh and about 30 Million illegals. The rest of the people will leave.

Anyone remember Right Nation Island? I keep thinking Texas is going to be it. Maybe another state or two added in. Like Day by Day.
