Editorials Address Health Care Reform
Summaries of two recent editorials addressing health care reform appear below:
Contra Costa Times: "What needs to take place in 2007 is a thorough bipartisan attack on California's health care problem," a Times editorial states. A successful health care measure will cover the uninsured yet will not "overly burden businesses and individual taxpayers" (Contra Costa Times, 12/17).
- North County Times: Extending coverage to the state's 800,000 uninsured children "is a fine place to start," but it would "be a shame to ring in 2008" without expanding health coverage to more of the state's estimated 6 million uninsured (North County Times, 12/16).
