No news is good news…

I think it’s good news that Speaker Nunez did *not* put up the Governor’s plan for a vote, where, as written, it would get few, if any, votes. That simply focuses on the differences, rather than on those items of consensus.

My read is that it’s a signal that the Speaker thinks the Governor is actually serious about negotiating, rather than just preparing for a veto.

That’s a good sign… and our jobs, as health and consumer advocates, is to create a political environment that anything that comes out of those negotiations has to place affordability for consumers as a central tenet: affordability to get coverage (premiums) and affordability to use coverage (out-of-pocket costs).

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