The response to the Governor’s press event (here’s the video and transcript) with some of the CEOs with the Coalition to Advance Healthcare Reform was interesting. The Sacramento Bee and the San Jose Mercury News both covered the event, but it was the blogs that really took notice.
Frank Russo at the California Progress Report has a full report, as does KQED’s John Myers. Both wonder about the specifics that these CEOs would agree to, including those that would impact their businesses. Although coming from different places, Jon Fleishman at the FlashReport and Randy Bayne at Capitol Notes are more pointed, suspicious of what these businesses might support. Yet another viewpoint is that of Speaker Fabian Nunez, who took it as a sign of momentum for reform.
