    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on California lawmakers’ single-payer health care proposal (all times local):

    5 p.m.

    A proposal to eliminate health insurance companies and guarantee government-funded health care for all California residents is moving forward.

    The Senate Health Committee voted Wednesday to send the measure to the Appropriations Committee. The vote came after hundreds of nurses clad in red held a rally in Sacramento, marched to the state Capitol and packed into a committee room.

    The proposal is promoted by the state’s powerful nursing union and two Democratic senators who say California should create a national model for providing health care for everyone.

    Critics say the measure would disrupt the health care used by millions of Californians, would require high taxes and would likely create longer waits to see a doctor.

      We thought that Canadians could not afford universal health coverage, when it was first proposed by Tommy Douglas in the late 1950’s. It became law in 1963 and now Canada has a first rate system. We also pay more government taxes but so far it has worked for the people. If however you have money and you are willing to pay for immediate care you can get most of those services here as we now have a two tier system, but the wait times aren’t as great as some like CFS likes to talk about. He does not know how good our system is because he doesn’t speak from experience. DT
