Governor vows to implement health care reforms
San Francisco Chronicle

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger threw his full support behind the national health overhaul Thursday, promising to fully implement provisions of the new law as early as possible despite the state’s ongoing budget crisis.

Saying he’s “not a party servant, I’m a public servant,” the Republican governor’s stance sets him apart from GOP leaders in other states who are actively trying to challenge the legislation, which President Obama signed into law last month.
