Statement by Bruce Bodaken on Senate Health Committee Action
Date:1/23/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement by Blue Shield of California CEO Bruce Bodaken on Senate Health Committee Action:

As a longtime advocate for universal coverage, I'm disappointed that we did not clear this hurdle today. We need to get there soon. The Senate must not make perfection the enemy of the good. This bill should be evaluated against what is, not what ought to be.

We have waited too long to make health coverage for all a reality. Every day of political wrangling is a day more than 6 million Californians go without access to regular medical care.

The governor, speaker and pro-tem have provided the vision and leadership to bring California to the precipice of a profound change for the better. I hope that in the coming days, senators will think hard about the consequences of inaction.
