    Senate Democrat Returns to Socialized Medicine

    After SB 840, the bill within the California State Legislature that would socialize medical coverage within the state, was vetoed by Gov. Schwarzenegger, Senate Pro Tem Don Perata (D) is proposing a plan that would tax businesses and individuals in order to pay for health care for the poor. The plan is different from SB 840, in that it only provides the free-ride health care to the poor. All employees and employers (even those who already pay for their own care) would be required to pay into (read: "be taxed into") a system that would provide the care for the uninsured.

    When presenting his proposal, Sen. Perata stated
    There would be an employer contribution and an employee contribution. If you want to call that mandates, yes. There's no free ride
    For clarification purposes, he means no free ride for businesses and individual tax payers. By definition, it is a free ride for those receiving the free medical care.

    Gov. Schwarzenegger has already stated his dedication to tackling the Health Care issue in 2007 and in his next term. Though he has not issued any details of his plans, he has expressed his opposition to socialized medicine, as well as any plans that would increase taxes.

    I will be watching this legislation closely.

    We need to email this dingbat and tell him to put his money where his mouth is. Before this passes I'd like to see him put his entire bank account and portfolio into this proposal.

    I'm not against the "poor". I'm against government entities sucking cash through taxes (read scamming) into programs that

    a: spend more than they take in.

    b: cost more than they provide for those they 'say' the money is going to.

    How many 'cousins' does this jerk have on the government payroll?

    GC - Sorry for the rant. This crap ticks me off 'cause I live in CA too!
