Universal Health Care in California

Gov Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA) is upsetting political powerhouses from labor unions to big business with his plan to provide health insurance for everyone in the state.

Around 6.5 million Californians are uninsured. The Governor's plan for universal health care is being attacked by labor as a tax on the middle class and by big business because it gives breaks to small business.

Gov Schwarzenegger discussed the plan via a videolink Monday. He's using some of his health insurance to recover from a skiing injury. (AP via Yahoo!)
