universal health coverage for Californians?

checked out Pumping Ironfrom the libray. (clerk thought it was a workout video...) will post about it after watching the dvd extras

but did want to note that our Governator has come out with a plan to extend health care coverage to all of California’s 36 million residents. one-fifth of the state’s population, including me, do not have health insurance, far more than in any other state

if approved, California would become the fourth and the largest state to give universal health coverage for its citizens. the other three states are Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont

of interest to me: Medi-Cal would be extended to adults who earn as much as 100 percent above the federal poverty line!

if he can pull this off... i'll take back every rotten thing i've thought and said about him... am very skeptical of his chances though
