Governor Right to Threaten Veto of Dem Health Bill

Republicans support reforming California's health care system. Current laws and regulations now on the books cause all kinds of market distortions that drive up the price of insurance in the state. The Governor, Assembly and Senate Republicans have proposed several different solutions to solve the problem.

Today the Governor threatened to veto the job-killing health care proposal from the Democrats in the legislature. Vetoing bad bills like theirs, which will destroy jobs and drive even more employers out of state, is precisely why we have a Republican governor.

Governor Schwarzenegger has demonstrated an extremely generous willingness to reach across the aisle and work with members of both parties to solve the state's big problems. Democrats moving forward with their deeply flawed proposal, which draws absolutely no Republican support, shows how little they share in any "post-partisan" sentiment. Reaching a deal on health care will become more difficult as the 2008 election approaches, making now the ideal time for Democrats to show some leadership and start giving serious consideration to the quality Republican health care proposals that have been introduced.
