LOS ANGELES, Jan. 8 —New York Times-  Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday proposed extending health care coverage to all of California’s 36 million residents as part of a sweeping package of changes to the state’s huge, troubled health care system.

A total of 6.5 million people, one-fifth of the state’s population, do not have health insurance, far more than in any other state. At least one million of the uninsured are illegal immigrants, state officials say.

OK, let’s make sure I’ve not missed anything, here.

The system is already huge and troubled. Not least among those troubles are financial. Yet this idiot proposes dumping huge numbers of people into that system who are not going to be paying for it, thereby making it even larger and more troubled, financially.


Yeah, that’ll work huh?

Update: Steve Verdon has some thoughts on all of this.

One Response to “How to Make a Health System Fail: Increased Governmental Involvement”

  1. I note an interesting pattern.  The democrats in Congress want tax oil companies for producing oil.  Now Arnie wants to tax health care providers for providing health care.  Talk about perverse incenttive.  And gee I thought Arnie had only broken his leg, not not his head.
