While the U.S. Senate -- in service to their corporate cronies -- is working to take away healthcare from millions of Americans, the California Senate passed a single-payer bill on a 23-14 vote, The bill is now headed to the State Assembly. A new poll shows 70% support for the Medicare-for-All type single-payer system the bill creates.
