POLICY: Universal Health Care in San Francisco…well not exactly

My buddy Laura Locke has a nice article in Time about San Francisco’s Latest Innovation: Universal Health Care. This one’s closer to the George Bush agenda than gay marriage—and I’m pretty sure that we’ll all have accepted gay marriage long before we’ve got to genuine universal health insurance. Essentially it’s about redirecting funds from the City and County back to the city and county health facilities, and making the uninsured pay into a pool. Not a bad start given that a City can’t do much, but it’ll run into trouble, just as I explained a while back when the proposal first came out because it’ll mean small low-wage businesses will have to pay more.
