    They'd Better Do Something Quick

    KFWB.com reports that Governor Davis is calling a special session of the California legislature in January 2003 to try to solve the health care crisis that the state is facing. Once federal waivers expire in 2005, the county health care system will be facing a $700 million budget shortfall. Potentially, the county's trauma system could have to shut down entirely.

    I'd like to suggest that you consider voting for Proposition B in November. Yes, it will raise taxes and I'm not thrilled about that. But as I posted here, I'm terrified of what might happen if the county health care system runs out of money. The strain on the emergency rooms of hospitals that continue operating will be overwhelming.
