No thanks. Litmus tests are for the Tea Party, not the Democratic Party. Single payer is NOT supported by most Californians (see PPIC poll), it’s an election loser in swing districts (see every recent election), and there is no means to pay for it since the tab is 4 times larger than the state budget. The notion that not accepting contributions (while our opponents still do) also is silly. Until Citizens United is struck down (can’t wait!), we need an even playing field. The Speaker and both Assemblymembers have a solid record of opposing insurance interests, no matter how much they donate.
