Contributing sentiments towards policy:

62% : The bill that advanced on Tuesday would create the universal health care system and set its rules.
59% : But a universal health care system would be paid for by a single entity -- the government, or the "single payer."
56% : In 1994, voters overwhelmingly rejected a ballot initiative that would have created a universal health care system.
48% : But it's not been easy to accomplish in a state where most people pay for private health insurance through their jobs.
47% : "You may refer to it as premiums, deductibles, co-pays, denial of care," Kalra said, saying none of those costs would exist under a universal health care system.
43% : To pay for everything, Democrats have introduced a separate bill that would raise taxes on businesses and individuals by about $163 billion per year, according to an analysis by the California Taxpayers Association, which opposes the bill.
