Universal Health Care - By the Numbers

With the news that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will veto universal health care, let's take a look at the numbers:

6,000,000-Uninsured Californians the bill would have covered
8,000,000-Dollars the bill would have saved annually
4,000,000-Dollars opponents contributed to Schwarzenegger

"Schwarzenegger's announcement shows he has listened to the big donors who have put millions into his campaign coffers, not to the people worried about health care costs and the rising number of uninsured workers."

- Jerry Flanagan, health policy director of the FTCR
