California Has Fallen Short on Promise of Health Care for Low-Income Residents, Editorial Argues
A San Francisco Chronicle editorial argues that California "has offered the promise of health care for the poor but fallen short on keeping that promise." The editorial notes that California expanded Medi-Cal, the state's Medicaid program, but has yet to reverse a 10% cut to the program's reimbursements rates. The editorial states that Gov. Jerry Brown (D) "touted the Medi-Cal expansion in last year's budget. He needs to keep the promise this year."
