Calling the state's health care system "unacceptable and unsustainable," Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told hundreds who gathered for his visit to San Ramon Thursday that he needs the Bay Area's support for reforms.
After his appearance at the AT&T offices in Bishop Ranch, Schwarzenegger headed over to the Tri-Valley to take a tour of the Safeway Health and Wellness Center in Pleasanton.

It is good news that we are finally talking about healthcare in our state. Healthcare is an area riddled with market failures and a crucial area of spending in the average families budget. In order to do better we need the government to do a better job fixing these market failures and reducing the burden created by the uninsured.
I congragulate our governor for deciding to take on this issue. I hope the legislature doesn't try to play politics with this issue and seriously tries to solve our healthcare problem.
