Healthcare Reform Is about to Begin in California

Hosted by

Republicans might want to repeal federal healthcare reform, or at least chip away at it while President Obama is still in office. In the meantime, officials in many states will be about the business of putting it into effect. In California, that task falls to Insurance Commissioner-elect Dave Jones, a Democrat who defeated Mike Villines, a Republican whose campaign was financed indirectly by insurance companies through “independent” TV ads by the state Chamber of Commerce. The Insurance Commissioner was made an elected officer when California voters approved Proposition 103 in 1988.
