Terminator Seeks to Reduce Reimbursements for Doctors

I saw California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Meet the Press shortly after Tim Russert’s death. I’ve never been a huge fan but his moderate views and understanding of the complexity of the issues facing California were fairly impressive. (Was the bar set low?)

Anyway, the Terminator is on the wrong side of insurance reimbursements for doctors in California. His administration intends to appeal an appeals court ruling from last week, halting a 10% reduction in Medi-Cal reimbursement rates to doctors.

I realize that we have a problem with this country with entitlements. But if you are of the mindset that we have to reduce entitlements, we have to do it head-on as opposed to nickel and diming doctors.
