California is where the GOP states send the sick

California prepares to fight GOP attempts to undermine Obamacare

Among the strategies is a fallback plan in case the Trump administration eliminates the subsidies that help low-income Obamacare enrollees pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses. And should Trump use his executive powers to weaken the enforcement of a critical part of the law — the individual mandate requiring people to have health insurance or pay a steep tax penalty — California could impose its own.Finally, if Trump curtails the advertising surrounding the upcoming 2018 enrollment season, as his administration did last winter to drive down the number of sign-ups, Covered California can rely on its own robust budget for marketing and outreach efforts.
That is the plot. 

The GOP generally blames California for the entitlement imbalance.  A fair  outcome  is to send all the sick to California to live on the streets  of LA. The mayor of LA likes the idea..
