All the promises, confused comments and best intentions are now being put into legalese as hearings intensify on health care reform legislation in Sacramento. April 27 is the deadline for lawmakers to complete work on bills that have fiscal impact -- they can push them ahead, vote them down or shelve them.


Here are the current key reform bills (nothing as yet from Gov. Schwarzenegger): SB 840, from Sen. Sheila Kuehl; SB 236, from Sen. George Runner; SB 48, from Sen. Don Perata; and AB 8, from Assembly Member Fabian Nunez.

A number of things to consider while the coffee perks:



  • Americans work 77 days per year to pay federal taxes; 62 days to pay for housing and household costs; 52 days for health and medical care; 39 days for state/local taxes; and 30 days to pay for food (Wall Street Journal opinion piece by U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley and Judd Gregg).

You ever gonna design/build/open that thing?  How do we know we can trust you?  What now? When will it? How much? How come?


Those are a few of my favorites from 10+ years of questioning (aka doubting) about Community Medical Centers' enormous commitment to create the Community Regional Medical Center and to move over acute care services from University Medical Center.

It's hard to flesh out public policy while picking halibut bones from your mouth. Which explains why politicians may attend lots of dinners, but food is not the main course.


There were plenty of views exchanged, lots of Valley togetherness, and very little partisanship, as state Sen. Dave Cogdill and Assembly Members Juan Arambula and Mike Villines table-hopped among 30 or so attendees at an April 5 Maddy Institute dinner at Fresno's Downtown Club.
