AOL News is reportingthat Arnold Schwarzenegger, the governer of California and terminator, is calling for universal health care coverage.
Under Schwarzenegger’s plan, all Californians would be required to have insurance, although the poorest would be subsidized. Businesses with 10 or more employees would have to offer insurance to their workers or pay 4 percent of their payroll into a state fund. Smaller businesses would be exempt.
Props to him. The health-care system in this country is seriously broken – and a big break requires a big fix. I don’t know much about the details of all of this, but I know that what is out there now is not working.
