Health Activists Oppose Cuts to County Health Programs

More than a thousand health care activists rallied at the state capitol Wednesday, calling on Governor Jerry Brown to protect health care safety net programs. The action comes the day after Brown released a budget plan that would shift 300 million dollars from county health care to the state as the new federal health care act kicks in. Counties, health care and civil rights advocates fear that could jeopardize public health programs and services for the 3 to 4 million Californians who will remain uninsured.
