This week, one letter by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was getting a lot of focus.
But there was another letter by California’s Governor, to Congress, on health reform, that also got some attention, in the Sacramento Bee, San Gabriel Valley Tribune, and elsewhere.
There wasn’t much new. It wasn’t even his first letter to Congress on health reform this year. Also, given that the Governor has been all over the place on health reform, being at different times both for the expansion of key health coverage programs and for their elimination, for employer mandates to provide coverage and against them, and for new regulations on insurers and against them, the question is not so much where the Governor is but where he is *now* on some of the vital health policy questions.
We’ll have more to say on the substance soon…
