Advocates for California children were outraged Thursday when Democrats in the Legislature disclosed that they had accepted Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposal to eliminate the Healthy Families insurance program next year. Brown included the proposal in his January budget, but until Thursday Democrats had resisted it. The agreement between legislative leaders and the governor calls for the program to be phased out during 2013.
