Brown: Healthcare not the place for ‘poisonous partisanship’
Los Angeles Times

Jerry Brown says he’ll take a careful look at whether California should join the 13 attorneys general who are filing lawsuits to stop the sweeping federal healthcare reform plan that was signed into law this week. But you don’t have to read very carefully between the lines in the statement Brown released Monday evening to see which way the California attorney general and Democratic gubernatorial candidate is leaning.

Brown says that of the attorneys general filing suit, “all but one are Republican” and that “healthcare is not the place, with people’s lives at stake, to engage in poisonous partisanship.”
