Does it ever seem to you that power drives people crazy? I often feel that way, and here’s a good example of it: Gov. seeks sweeping health system reforms. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is registered as a Republican, although he doesn’t seem to have read the party platform, wants everyone in California to have health insurance, while at the same time bringing down health care costs. To do this, he wants to tax businesses, doctors, and hospitals. Right off the top, it seems obvious that taxing doctors and hospitals isn’t going to lower health care costs, assuming, of course, that one wants doctors and hospitals to stay in California. Which, may well be at the heart of Arnold’s plan. After all, if no health care is available, health care costs drop to zero, and the Government gets to keep the tax on business to waste on other projects. Perhaps the Governator is taking the right approach after all. Somehow though, I expect to pay for part of this somewhere down the line.
