Senate Democrat Returns to Socialized Medicine
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 rideFor 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.
