The 7 Key Questions About the Schwarzenegger/Nunez Health Care Compromise
Date:9/5/2007

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In a letter sent today, the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights (FTCR) called on Governor Schwarzenegger and Assembly Speaker Nunez to answer seven questions about the details of their reported compromise on health care reform, that has not been publicly released even though there are only a few days remaining in the legislative session.

1. If all patients will be required to buy coverage, will there be a cap

on how much they must spend?

2. Will you make the individual mand
