Newsom says SF health care program should be key 

Mayor Gavin Newsom chimed in on the health care conversation Monday, saying the federal reform should not preempt San Francisco’s existing universal health care program.

The mayor said that his office is putting together a working group to analyze how the newly passed health care reform will impact The City’s Healthy San Francisco program, which offers health care to uninsured residents.

“The impact locally is not going away,” Newsom said. “Ours is a safety net that’s an example for all counties to deal with those who will fall through the cracks in this national health care reform.”
