Governor Schwarzenegger and Medical Care for the Poor

Hosted by
An improving economy is providing more taxes, and Governor Schwarzenegger has rescinded tuition increases for university students. Now, he wants to spend $4 billion new dollars for K-12 education and to borrow billions more for infrastructure repair and construction. For the poorest of all Californians, though, the news is not so good. A 5% cut in Medi-Cal reimbursements may drive doctors out of the program--and their patients into emergency rooms that are over-crowded already. We look at the impact of Medi-Cal cuts on the rest of the healthcare system with the medical industry, the head of California's Medi-Cal program and those who care for the state's poorest patients
