FROM THIS EPISODE

Single-payer healthcare – basically Medicaid for all – is all-the-rage among liberals, and nowhere more so than in California. Proponents like Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom and Senator Kamela Harris insist it's the best way to guarantee health coverage for everyone. They want to California to adopt it even if the rest of the country sticks with a mix of public and private coverage. But one estimate puts the cost at more than $400 billion annually in California. That's more than twice the state's general fund. So how would we pay it for it? Zócalo Public Square columnist Joe Mathews says that even backers don't have an answer.
