Our colleagues and allies at the 100% Campaign, PICO California, and other groups held a press conference earlier today urging the Governor to prioritize covering all children as part of his health plan. Here’s the release:
One particular effort is a new website, Fulfill the Pledge, to keep the Governor to his word.
It’s notable that while Governor Schwarzenegger made this promise in his first campaign for Governor three years ago, he has yet to even provide a plan to get there, much less implement it. And he has opposed other opportunities, whether by bill or ballot measure, to achieve the goal.
Will he cover all kids? As he prepares his broader health care plan, it’s the very least he can do.
