In California's budget crisis, thousands of children will soon be cut from the subsidized Healthy Families public insurance plan, and Medicaid is being sharply curtailed just as tens of thousands of Californians lose their jobs and health insurance, said Consumer Watchdog.

"We increasingly hear from newly jobless people desperate because they can't afford to buy commercial health care, and not destitute enough to qualify for public aid," said Dugan. "Many must choose between health care and their mortgage, and may lose both. It's a disgrace that volunteers have to provide health care to Americans in animal stalls and sports stadiums, and the White House needs to see this."

Potter, who is now affiliated with the Center for Media and Democracy, was also recently interviewed by Bill Moyers for PBS. He received a public service award last week from California's Civil Justice Foundation.
