The state of health reform….

Thanks to Matthew Holt of the good read and widely-read “The Health Care Blog”, which links to both us and the debate over at Dan Weintraub’s Crossroads.

He does make a snide remark about state-based reforms. I’m all for working for reform at the national level… but I think that’s not going to happen if some states don’t push the envelope, and California has been doing that for the last few years and is positioned to make a breakthrough.

That the states are taking the lead is actually the premise of TWO big articles in today’s San Francisco Chronicle, that devotes more than a full page on previewing the 2007 health care debate.

It’s the start of a series at the Chron. Another take-away message: we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a major change here…

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