From bad to worse…

Even articles that aren’t about the campaign don’t bode well for the McCain health plan. Today, Jordan Rau of the Los Angeles Times has a in-depth article about the state’s high-risk pool, the Major Risk Medical Insurance Program (MRMIP), and the problems with it.

It appropriately takes Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to task for vetoing AB2 (Dymally) this year, that would have improved and expanded the program, and as Rau points out, was supported by the program’s governing board, most of whom the Governor appointed. And it can be read as a devastating critique of the McCain plan, which would rely on these high risk pools, and by shifting more people into individual market, and allowing more people to be denied for “pre-existing conditions,” make the problem much worse.
