The Daily Quote

"As Governor, I have made significant efforts to advance health reform in California…Our principal goals, slowing the growth in costs, enhancing the quality of care delivered, improving the lives of individuals, and helping to ensure a strong economic recovery, are the same goals that the president is trying to achieve. I appreciate his partnership with the states and encourage our colleagues on both sides of the political aisle at the national level to move forward and accomplish these vital goals for the American people.”

 

 - Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA), 10/6/09
