A pro-family leader in California says the state's Democrat governor is concerned that The Golden State can't afford ObamaCare, even though he's a supporter of it.

Governor Jerry Brown's May budget plan says California must lead to expand Medi-Cal programs under ObamaCare. In January, he advised counties to lead on Medi-Cal expansion, but now, Brown says the state's role will increase in indigent care, while counties will be in charge of "safety net services."

Though the governor has not released a detailed plan on how the state will expand healthcare coverage to one-million more people, he maintains that California must find a "sustainable" way to do it.

Thomasson, Randy (SaveCalifornia.com)Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, says, "Brown is a supporter of ObamaCare, but he doesn't know if the state can afford it."

"In fact, he's seen that the state government coffers in California have been really challenged due to overspending," the pro-family leader continues. "He's old enough to know that more overspending with ObamaCare would really break the bank, so he is not pushing ahead to expand the spending program of ObamaCare.

Once ObamaCare is completely implemented, Brown claims his state could pay $700 million more each year. But on top of that, California would have to shoulder ten percent of the cost for childless single adults who earn $15,000 each year.
