Quotes-start.png "If Schwarzenegger is the free-lunch governor -- he won't raise taxes and has failed to slice spending to eliminate the state's $4 billion to $5 billion structural budget shortfall -- Angelides offers free lunch followed by free desert. Angelides' recipe for state finances: No new taxes, unless you're rich, a tax-cut if you're middle class -- forget about the fact that the books don't balance as they are." Quotes-end.png

Quotes-start.png "Remarkably, Kuehl's proposal to socialize California's health care is being made just at the time when the Canadian system it resembles is falling apart at the seams. For instance, Canada's single payer system is projected to absorb more than half the budgets of most Canadian provinces. In addition, the amount of time a Canadian patient must wait before receiving medical care is notorious." Quotes-end.png

Quotes-start.png "This bill would have gone nowhere had either legislators or the public remembered one basic idea -- nothing is free. This bill reflects the clash of a moral vision (we "ought" to do something about the uninsured) with the business economics of health care." Quotes-end.png
