No candidate on the ballot this year can do as much for you as two propositions backed by Consumer Watchdog, Consumer Federation and other champions of the underdog.
YES ON PROP 45 will give us the power to stop price gouging by the health insurance companies. Congress requires us to buy health insurance, but they didn’t limit how much the insurance companies can charge us for it. That’s why we need Prop 45.
YES ON PROP 46 will make healthcare safer by preventing addicts from getting unnecessary prescription narcotics, requiring those who hold our lives in their hands to get tested for drugs, and allowing us to hold hospitals, doctors and insurance companies accountable when they injure us.
The insurance companies have spent over $100 million to defeat these pro-consumer propositions. They’ve bought off the politicians and paid for “studies” that predict disaster if these measures pass. And they’ve polluted the airwaves and the internet with outrageous lies about 45 and 46.
Let’s face it: our political system is corrupt. But, here in California, we voters can take matters into our own hands at the ballot box. We don’t have the money to compete with the industry, but – thanks to your support all these years – we have the truth on our side.
Tomorrow it will be 26 years since you joined me to pass Proposition 103 – the reform that stops insurance companies from overcharging us for auto, home and small business insurance. They said we could never defeat the insurance companies, but we did. They said it would never work…. But it did. California is the only state in the nation where auto insurance costs less today than it did in 1988! Prop 45 will extend that voter victory to health insurance.
Please join us again, tomorrow, by VOTING YES ON 45 AND 46.
