Hosted by

Democrats in both the Assembly and Senate got big majorities in favor of Senate Bill 840, a measure pushed for years by Santa Monica Democrat Sheila Kuehl that would replace insurance companies with a plan for the state to pay healthcare costs for all Californians. Supporters were fully aware that Governor Schwarzenegger is unlikely to sign because he says it will do nothing to bring down costs. Should the Governor change his mind?
