This episode What’s Ahead is about the question of whether “Elder Care” will make it to California. This is not a health insurance plan, but it refers to the campaign for governor by Larry Elder, a popular radio host, to replace incumbent Gavin Newsom, who faces a recall election on September 14.
Elder just won a major court victory to be on the ballot after concerned Democrats tried to block him. Now he is leading other challengers to succeed Newsom if Newsom loses the impeachment vote.
Newsom has repeatedly failed in responses to the pandemic, making this health and economic crisis even worse.
Newsom has also lacked the courage and political skills to tackle Golden State’s deep-seated problems: sky-high taxes, policies that waste most of the state’s annual rains, unnecessarily complex and time-consuming approval processes that make the California homes are the most expensive. across the nation, mismanagement of the state’s forests and public lands that have fueled its devastating fires, and energy policies that have led to ongoing blackouts and America’s highest gasoline taxes.
