No on Proposition 72

A simple cursory look at this one has me running to the hills. Shifting the burden of healthcare costs to families is the short-term solution. Until we get some fairly massive healthcare reform working, we shouldn't force businesses to accept the lousy current situation.

I'm betting that more comprehensive and sensible legislation and theory will come down the pike before long, and I'll have a better grasp. This is just stuffing some arbitary things down the throats of businesses. Plus, the pro side has played the Wal-Mart card. Game over.

As a regular old conservative, I have to have a damned good reason to approve any ballot initiative. This one doesn't meet the Cobb standard. Sorry.

Good to know. The reason I asked is because I've has to track the campaign very closely in my role in my day job as we do business in CA (it's a problem state for us in more ways than one). SB-2 (the healthcare bill) could mean many lost jobs for our company.

Oh, and last week we got to be on a conference call with Arnold Schwizzlenigger. I'm sure you can imagine how difficult it was to take him seriously.

Anyway....that's my two cents, but who the heck cares, I'm not a California resident. Vote on my brother.
