California’s universal health coverage plans

The state of California is currently considering programs to offer health care to all of their residents.

One of the suggestions is that sales taxes be increased at the consumer level and that a gross receipts tax be imposed upon businesses.  Most businesses would probably increase their prices so that they do not get stuck with their new bill.

Without regard to the economic considerations of such plans, let’s consider another consequence.

Immigration

Will residents of other states move to California to take advantage of their universal coverage?  Will people with expensive health conditions move to California?  Will it only take an airplane ride to a California airport to become a resident or will California  have to implement some kind of visa system?

Will California resort to building a wall to keep foreigners out?

We deserve better
