Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger spent a full year of his term fighting for health care reform. But on Wednesday, with Congress on the verge of remaking the nation’s health care system in much the same way Schwarzenegger tried to do for the state in 2007, the governor turned into a full-throated reform critic. Schwarzenegger attacked a “sweetheart deal” in the reform measure that was added late last month to cinch the crucial final vote of Nebraska Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson.
