Health Care Emerging As Key Issue In California Governor’s Race

Sacramento, CA — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides is promising to provide health care for all of California´s children if elected.

He proposes to do this by closing corporate tax loopholes and tax breaks given to those who earn more than $500,000 a year.

Angelides gave brief details about the plan outside a health center Friday. Angelides estimates the state would have to roll back about $5 billion in corporate tax loopholes and tax breaks for those earning more than a half-million dollars.

A spokesman for Schwarzenegger says Angelides is “ignoring the leadership and real solutions the governor has given uninsured families over the past two and a-half years.”
