Paul just sent me the following:
The California legislature has approved a bill to mandate universal (state-run) health care in [California]; eliminating private insurance. We’ll see if Schwarzenegger vetoes this one.
“On a largely party-line 43-30 vote, the Assembly approved a bill by state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, D-Santa Monica, that would eliminate private medical insurance plans and establish a statewide health insurance system that would provide coverage to all Californians. The state Senate has already approved the plan once and is expected this week to approve changes that the Assembly made to the bill.”
Holy socialism! I’m glad that Paul isn’t practicing medicine in California any longer, because he certainly wouldn’t practice under such a system.
As for the likelihood of a veto, the article also reports, “Schwarzenegger’s office said it had no official position on the bill. The governor has said he would propose solutions to the state’s health care crisis in his State of the State address next January if he is re-elected.”
