A pending bill would establish the California Healthcare System, administered by another new band of bureaucrats, the California Healthcare Agency.

Demagogues know how to exploit our weaknesses. To gain control over us they slyly appeal to our genuine yearnings. They promise to relieve our universal sufferings. Too often they succeed in persuading many of us who should know better, and too many of us who have yet to learn better.

Universal health care is a particularly vile form of this demagoguery...

Liberals in California have been looking for "the final straw". It appears this may be it.

"The final nail in the economic coffin of California"

What is stated in the bill as to the funding of the bill? Can a Proposition require that the sources of funding must be stated before a bill can be signed into law?

I have not read the bill. However, if it is like the many previous efforts to create a single payer system in California, the source of funding is the general fund of the state. There will be higher taxes to pay for it. And yes, a Proposition can make all sorts of requirements of funding.
