THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Democrats want taxpayers to fund infertility problems

Democrat Hidden Taxes
From each according to their ability, to each according to their endless list of
selfish, self-centered "wants" and "needs".

A bill in the state Legislature would make the People's Republic of California the first state in the nation to force insurance companies to raise your health care premiums so voters can make babies. 

This "extra" magic money will be taken from your bank account and used to cover fertility treatments for patients battling cancer and other serious diseases that often require treatments that can jeopardize their ability to have children.

The fact that you might like to keep your money and spend it on things like food, clothing and shelter never enters into the minds of Socialists.  The "needs" of the Marxist Collective are far more important than your needs.

A hearing on the bill was underway Tuesday before the Assembly Health Committee, which was expected to vote later in the day.

The legislation by Leftist nutcase Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva, D-Fullerton, would force insurance providers to cover the fertility services driving up everyone's insurance costs.

Treatments covered under AB912 would include extracting eggs and freezing sperm reports CBS News.

“Even though cancer is scary, the idea of not getting to be a biological mother is even scarier,” Crisci, who is now pregnant, said at a news conference Tuesday.

Some insurance plans include coverage for fertility treatment. But Crisci and other supporters of AB912 say cancer patients may be deemed ineligible by their insurers because they are not infertile before receiving radiation or other treatments, which is when eggs or sperm would need to be collected.

The California Association of Health Plans is among those opposing the bill. In a letter to the Assembly Health Committee, the association wrote that the requirement would lead to higher insurance premiums and additional state costs.
