Pennsylvania governor vows to press ahead on healthcare
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, January 14, 2008
Pennylvania Gov. Ed Rendell is threatening to retaliate against legislators who do not support his efforts to offer more affordable healthcare to the state's uninsured adults. In 2007, Rendell's Cover All Pennsylvanians plan garnered little interest from lawmakers when they learned funding would come from a tax on businesses that did not offer health insurance to workers. The governor has now declined to approve medical malpractice subsidies through the state's MCare program until lawmakers agree to fund Cover All Pennsylvanians.
