Aztlan Governer Schwarzenegger has inexplicably decided to extend the same free, comprehensive health care enjoyed by the native sons of La Raza to the occupying white European invaders of the land. California’s Governor Seeks Universal Care.
Mr. Schwarzenegger estimated would cost $12 billion, calls for many employers that do not offer health insurance to contribute to a fund that would help pay for coverage of the working uninsured. It would also require doctors to pay 2 percent and hospitals 4 percent of their revenues to help cover higher reimbursements for those who treat patients enrolled in Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program.
“Everyone in California must have health insurance,” Mr. Schwarzenegger said, in a tone that seemed as much a threat as a promise.
The plan includes elements that only an hour after his announcement provoked opposition from many powerful interests, including doctors and the governor’s Republican colleagues in the Legislature.
But the speaker of the State Assembly, Fabian Núñez, a Democrat, said in a statement, “I’m glad the governor is on board with coverage for all kids.”
