The court even went so far as to say, “Uninsured people’s hardships from not having health care are far greater than the hardships that businesses would suffer by making payments that could be refunded if they won their suit.” Nice to see local courts doing what federal ones never do. Under Bush’s watch, all you ever would hear about over the last seven years is how the federal courts always sided with business interests. Seeing as how this is the first ordinance in the nation to provide health care for all uninsured residents in a city, its nice to see the Bay Area living up to its reputation as the most progressive region in the country. I hope other cities in the Bay follow SF’s lead.
Go ‘head Sucka Free. Living in Republican ass Georgia, news like this sure makes me miss home.
