Health policy and elections…

The effort to close the loophole in Healthy San Franscisco has now emerged as an issue in the San Francisco Mayor’s race.

Nationally, the GOP tried to make the federal Affordable Care Act an issue in the West Virginia governor’s race. But it didn’t work, as acting Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, a Democrat, won the special election last night.

In 2012, health care will be front and center–although I suspect the question will be broadened to whether the candidates want to repeal Medicare, Medicaid, or the Affordable Care Act. We’ll see how the issue fares.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
