Universal Healthcare for All Passes Cali Senate and Assembly

Posted By on Wed, Aug 30, 2006 at 8:10 AM

In what has been an incredible uphill but necessary battle, California might just see universal health care. Amazingly enough, SB840 passed in both the state Senate and state Assembly. It now waits for signing from the Governator on Sept. 1. Proponents of SB 840 expect the Governator to veto SB840, but who knows—perhaps they could be pleasantly surprised.

SB 840 provides comprehensive medical, dental, vision, hospitalization and prescription drug coverage to every California resident.

California is much further along than Arizona in equal health care for all, although every Democratic candidate kind of dances around it on their platform.
