Now he proposes to insure all children in the state of California, including illegal immigrant children.
Why don’t we just get rid of the border while you’re at it?
If this passes, then the rest of Mexico with their uninsured children will stream across the border at their earliest convenience whenever one of their kids has any illness bigger than a cold.
Who is going to pay for this?
My pay is already taxed beyond reason; so is the gas in this state. Taxing smokers isn’t going to work either.
Stop the madness!!
Gov. to seek insurance for all children

SACRAMENTO — Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will propose that all
Californian children, including those in the state illegally, be
guaranteed medical insurance as part of the healthcare overhaul he
intends to unveil next week, according to officials familiar with the
If enacted by the Legislature, his proposal would affect about 763,000
children who now lack insurance. Although the administration has not
revealed details of how it would pay for such a program, officials
estimate that extending insurance to all children could cost the state
as much as $400 million a year.
That would be a small piece of Schwarzenegger’s stated goal: to ensure
medical coverage for all of the 6.5 million Californians who now have
none. Experts say that could cost upward of $10 billion a year.
Although California will not be the first to cover all children, it
has fewer employers providing insurance and more illegal immigrants
than other states, making coverage more challenging. This also means that Joe Tax Payer is the one that will be hammered. I have enough problems paying for the things that my family needs and wants. I include wants, because last time I checked, this is still a capatalist society.
Get off your dead ass and get a job, or two if necessary and pay for your own health care.
