Health Care Tax
In early February 2016, as the Legislative special session on health care
continued, Senators Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga) and John Moorlach
(R-Costa Mesa) said majority Democrats should focus less on tax increases and
more on existing budget resources to fund medical services for the state’s most
of the highest taxes in the nation, California’s middle class cannot afford
another tax increase.
Republicans have worked hard so that people can keep more of the money they
earn. We remain committed to that principle.
“Yet at a time when Democrats contend that the state budget
has billions of dollars in surplus, they are pushing for new health care
“The federal government made a promise to the American
people that the President’s health care law would drive down the costs of
medical care for all citizens. Now they want to force Californians to pay even
more to make their plan work.
“We hope the health care plans do not want to find
themselves in a position of having to pass a tax increase along to their
members and policyholders.
“We believe all Republicans should stand with families
across California in opposing any proposal that will further drive up the
already high cost of medical care in our state.”
