Editorial: Schwarzenegger Needs To Address Health Care
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) is "missing a golden opportunity to address the state's worst health care crisis in decades," a San Jose Mercury News editorial states, adding that Schwarzenegger "has not even provided leadership in moving toward fulfilling his 2004 promise to provide health care insurance for the state's 800,000 uninsured children."
The editorial states that Schwarzenegger "has offered voters no vision of what he will do to solve one of the biggest threats to the state's financial future," noting that Democratic gubernatorial nominee Phil Angelides has offered a health care proposal.
"Voters must demand that the governor tell them what he plans to do to address the health care crisis before going to the polls in November," the editorial concludes (San Jose Mercury News, 8/22).
