According to Rob Hotakeinen at McClatchydc.com, the Governor of California has proven once again that he’s a bit more independent than his Washington party affiliates. And you can be rest assured that many more moderates around the US are glad to see thier views represented.
He actually supports Health Care reform, and unlike most of the Republican party leaders, believes that we’ve made too much progress to “start from scratch” now. It’s true… Americans have now gotten closer than ever in our history to making important changes in our health care, and ensuring fiscal responsibility and first rate care for generations to come. Both houses have passed significant bills that (in a normal cycle) would have been merged and signed into law by now. But of course in today’s Washington, partisan politics reigns supreme… far ahead of the best interests of our people.
So a hearty thank you to Governor Schwarzenegger… thank you for being a voice of reason that has so often gotten lost in campaign squandor this year. It’s time to put the party games aside and help to make a system that will be better for all of us. I hope that my Senators John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison will be present and receptive at Thursday’s summit. It’s time to invest in our health and in our future as Americans.
