I don't live in Cali but i found this article interesting. It actually burned by A## because they are pushing the cost over on the people that actually work hard for a living.

Why not start squeezing insurance company's, hospitals, doctors too?

Health care reform unveiled
Universal coverage key in governor's plan
By Mike Zapler and Harrison Sheppard Sacramento Bureau

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proposed Monday a sweeping plan to insure the health of all Californians by forcing most businesses to cover their employees and all individuals to obtain coverage through work or on their own.

The Republican governor's proposal puts the state at the forefront of national efforts to reform the health care system.

His plan would provide health coverage to the estimated 6.5 million Californians - legal and illegal residents - who are uninsured and put the cost burden on everyone else.

In calling for "shared responsibility" to solve the health care crisis, Schwarzenegger's proposal demands big contributions from some of the most powerful business and health interests in the state.

"We will fix California's broken health care system," Schwarzenegger pledged in an announcement televised by closed-circuit from Los Angeles, where he is nursing a broken leg. "And create a model that can be used by the rest of the nation."
