Bush vs. San Francisco…

As if San Francisco didn’t need more bad press this week, the Bush Administration is weighing in against Healthy San Francisco in court today, reports Bob Egelko of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Here’s some previous posts on the background of the Healthy San Francisco effort, including the legal ERISA challenge to the San Francisco program, to strike down the policy of getting employers to contribute to the health care of their workers.

There’s a hearing today at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Given that effort around Healthy San Francisco came about in part because of federal inaction on health reform, it’s disappointing that the White House couldn’t stay out of it, and allow state and local groups to proceed with their own reforms.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
