Matters of Policy & Politics

A big news week in Sacramento includes Governor Newsom unveiling a record $286 billion budget proposal and a Democratic lawmaker offering a massive tax increase to cover the cost of a statewide single-payer healthcare system. Hoover senior fellow Lee Ohanian and distinguished policy fellow Bill Whalen, both contributors to Hoover’s “California on Your Mind” web channel, join Hoover senior writer Jonathan Movroydis to discuss what Newsom’s spending blueprint says about California’s priorities and what effects a single-payer system would have on California’s economy and outbound migration.
